We arrived at 5pm after an awful 7 hour journey, which included two motorway accidents (thankfully not ours) and heavy rain for most of the day,to find a wonderfully charming one bedroom barn conversion. Part of a 5 barn units, Mocktree Barns is one of the quietest and peaceful place we have ever stayed in. The owners, Cynthia and Clive...

This is a lovely set of cottages situated in the very heart of Shropshire with beautiful views. We stayed in Kit Cottage. Ludlow, the food shopping market town was within easy reach at 7 miles. Ludlow has lots of quaint pubs to eat at and is host to traditional markets held throughout certain weeks in the month. The cottage itself...

Glad you enjoyed your stay here and also looking round delightful Ludlow. We're situated in beautiful countryside with lovely views of the South Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but are actually just over the border into Herefordshire so we get the best of both counties. There is so much to see and do in this unspoilt part of...
