Sitting pretty in beautiful countryside just outside the lively market – and foodie – town of Ludlow, Shropshire Hills offers luxurious bed and breakfast accommodation for adults only. Its owners, Chris and Linda Baker, make no apology for the fact that it’s a child and pet-free zone, and have cleverly created the perfect restful retreat for couples looking for a romantic break. We guarantee that you’ll relax as soon as you step through the door and experience the peaceful atmosphere. You’ll also love the thoughtful finishing touches, which include a fabulous selection of homemade cakes in each room!
The attractive house sits in two acres of land nestled between Wenlock Edge and the Brown Clee, both of which are Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs). There are countless fantastic walks nearby to suit all fitness levels, and one of them – the Three Castle Walk – actually starts and finishes at the B&B. There’s a great choice of cycling routes through the Corvedale Valley, whilst Wenlock Edge offers more challenging options for mountain bikers.
Shropshire Hills is just minutes away from Ludlow and its attractions, which include regular markets, various festivals throughout the year and a good choice of pubs, shops and eateries, including the Michelin-starred restaurant Mr Underhills. The historic towns of Much Wenlock, Bridgnorth, Ironbridge and Church Stretton are all within easy reach, and Chris and Linda are more than happy to suggest places to eat and visit.
Popular with lovers of the great outdoors, Shropshire Hills has a dedicated boot room with changing and drying facilities, as well as safe storage for bicycles.
Its beautiful gardens are the perfect spot to relax and soak up the views, and they feature a selection of plants that have been carefully chosen to attract bees and butterflies to further add to the visual appeal.
Guests have their own entrance and separate accommodation.
There are just three guest bedrooms, ensuring that you’ll receive a truly personal service and feel like you have the place to yourselves. They’re all decorated in a pretty, modern country style and feature luxurious beds dressed in fine linen; designer soft furnishings; comfortable chairs; and stylish, modern en suite bath or shower rooms with heavenly rainfall showers. The rooms also have flat-screen televisions and free, wireless internet access.
The luxurious Meadow Room has a vast king-sized bed and stunning floor-to-ceiling window offering a view that’s to die for. You’ll want to pull up a chair, kick back with a slice of homemade cake and cup of tea, and immerse yourself in the beauty beyond the window.
The spacious Orchard Room has a super king-sized bed and lovely views across the orchard to the hills beyond, as well as a modern en suite with a large shower and separate bath.
The Garden Room has a pleasant outlook across the front garden and there’s a large walk-in shower in the en suite.
Prices range from £90 to £100 per room per night.
Breakfast is freshly prepared each day using produce from the local area, including what Chris and Linda believe is some of the very best bacon, sausage and eggs you’ll find anywhere in the country. Fresh fruit compotes and jams are made using rhubarb, blackberries, raspberries, gooseberries, blackcurrants and strawberries from the garden.
The dining room is very much a room with a view, from which guests can admire the idyllic rural setting as they dine.
