This medieval market town in south Shropshire is undoubtedly one of the best-looking in England. Not only does it have an historic town centre and impressive castle, it also sits on the edge of the Shropshire Hills, offering visitors the opportunity to explore this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. For those who want to enjoy nature without venturing far from Ludlow centre, the Whitcliffe Common Nature Reserve sits just across the Teme, the river that curves its way around the town.
Ludlow is quite rightly protective of its quaint market town feel, so you won't find big chain hotels here. Instead, you'll be spoilt for choice by the historic hotels in Ludlow that largely sit clustered around the central market square (Castle Square) and landmark Assembly Rooms building. These include a small selection of three- and four- star hotels that are traditional in style, both inside and outside.
An example of a typical hotel in Ludlow is The Feathers Hotel. With its decorative Jacobean façade, it's been heralded as one of the most handsome inns in the world. Behind its famous frontage are cosy sitting rooms with roaring real fires, beamed ceilings and, in some guestrooms, four-poster beds. Alternatively, The Townhouse, opposite the imposing St Laurence's Church, is one of the charming hotels with a view in Ludlow, offering romantic rooms with four-poster beds and freestanding baths.
As Ludlow town centre is easily walkable, you'll find that most hotels are well-located close to its main attractions. Hotels near the Church of St Laurence will also put you within a few minutes' walk of Ludlow Museum and the market square that's lined with shops, restaurants and galleries – don't miss Chocolate Gourmet opposite the Assembly Rooms.
The market square also leads to Ludlow's most famous landmark, its medieval castle. This impressive ruin dates back to 1066 and sits with the town on one side and the River Teme on the other. It's especially busy during Ludlow's annual Food and Drink Festival, which is held in the castle grounds every September. Hotels near Ludlow Castle will position you perfectly for visiting this beautiful ruin, as well as for exploring the Whitcliffe Common Nature Reserve beside it.
If you're keen to make the most of your proximity to the Shropshire Hills, hotels near the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre, just north of Ludlow, will make a convenient base. You're also likely to find yourself close to another famous Shropshire landmark, Stokesay Castle, which is in better repair than Ludlow Castle and boasts several buildings within its moated complex – including two towers and a gatehouse.
Picturesque Ludlow is the perfect place for a couple's mini-break, following relaxed riverside strolls with cosy meals in the town's many restaurants. There are several romantic hotels in Ludlow that fit the bill perfectly, including the aforementioned hotels with four-poster beds.
If your taste is more contemporary, The Cliffe at Dinham is another good choice. This 19th-century hotel sits in its own grounds just outside of the town centre, so it's a more secluded option. It’s also one of the hotels with a restaurant in Ludlow, boasting an AA Two Rosette award for culinary excellence.
Another romantic option a little further out of town is The Clive Restaurant with Rooms. This five-star hotel in Ludlow offers exceptional fine dining at its AA Two Rosette-awarded restaurant, with comfortable rooms and suites to retire to afterwards.
It's safe to say that slumming it isn't really an option in Ludlow. Instead, unique, independently-run hotels offer stylish accommodation. Those looking for luxury hotels in Ludlow town centre won't be disappointed with the accommodation at The Queens. This pub with rooms offers apartment-style accommodation in Ludlow, in three cottages set around a pretty courtyard. Choose to stay in The Stable if the thought of a roll-top bath appeals.
If, however, you're on a budget, there are a few cheap hotels in Ludlow offering cosy, comfortable and good-value accommodation. The Ludlow Mascall Centre is a four-star hostel offering free parking and free Wifi.
Those who like the idea of Ludlow but would prefer to stay in a larger town with a longer list of attractions could consider Shrewsbury hotels instead. With a Tudor town centre, an impressive 11th-century castle, beautiful Shrewsbury Abbey and plenty more churches, parks, gardens and attractions besides, it's almost as pretty as Ludlow, and a little livelier.
