Cosy 2 bedroom Victorian Cottage in Ludlow

Friars Cottage is a cosy Victorian Cottage, tucked away in the heart of the historic and vibrant market town of Ludlow with its streets lined with historic timber-framed buildings and castle that dates back to 1085.

You are only a 5-minute walk from the town centre and its quaint back streets, independent shops, and an abundance of restaurants, bars, & cafes to suit all tastes and walks along river Teme.

Mortimer Forest is also on our doorstep, for those wanting to enjoy the outdoors.

The space
Friars Cottage, formally a Mews, is full of character. Access to the cottage is down a set of steps and you enter into the hallway, where there is a tray for muddy boots and into our cosy sitting room with Smart TV, which includes Netflix. The sitting room leads into a fully equipped kitchen/dining room. Off the kitchen is a utility with a downstairs toilet and drying room.

To the rear of the property is a private courtyard garden, which catches the sun, most of the day and is great to enjoy that early morning coffee or late afternoon glass of wine.

Our stairs are reasonably steep and narrow. Upstairs we have a large family bathroom with a bath over the shower.

Bedroom with double bed and storage space and a smaller bedroom to the rear of the property with a small 4ft double bed.

Guest access
The whole of the house and patio area is for guests to enjoy.

Other things to note
Our house does not have parking and is only pedestrian access from Old Street and Friars Garden. For unloading only, you can park on the wide pavement on Old St near the entrance. The long-term Smithfield car park is located on Lower Galdeford just a very short walk away, by the Police station, where you can park for £2.40 per day or £10 for the week.

"🏰✨ Dive into the heart of Shrewsbury's Castle Quarter – the epicenter of history and grandeur! 🏰 Home to four of the town's largest historic treasures – Shrewsbury Castle, Library, Prison, and Train Station. 

Did you know Shrewsbury Castle's foundations were laid in 1083 by the 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery? 
Montgomery, a cousin of William the Conqueror, earned this castle and more as a thank-you for his aid during the Norman conquest.

From royal stronghold to a 16th-century transformation, Shrewsbury Castle has quite the story. Now, it stands majestically, housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum. 👑🏰 Ready to step into the pages of history?
