Visit Ludlow near Upper Heath Farm self catering cottage

Shropshire’s food and drink capital

Ludlow is just 20 minutes from Stable Cottage at Upper Heath Farm and is renowned for its local produce, farmers markets, slow food movement, independent foodie shops, Michelin starred restaurant and fantastic places to eat and drink.

Ludlow Food Centre is a must-visit, where farming and food come together to create a unique shopping experience. 80% of the food they sell comes from Shropshire and the surrounding counties and half of their products are made on the premises, in kitchen units that surround the food hall (which means you can see your food actually being made!).

If you don’t want to cook everyday (or at all) during your stay at Stable Cottage, Ludlow is the place to go. Walk around the town (with over 500 listed buildings) and visit Ludlow Castle and tearoom. A trip to Ludlow during the Spring Festival in May and Ludlow Food Festival in September is also highly recommended. For local Shropshire events please click here.

Ludlow's river is the river Teme and travels through the town and surrounding countryside over a series of low weirs that have sculpted the banks into a wonderful circular walk.  

You can make a booking online or contact us with your booking enquiries.

Local Gems: Pub was good fun, great community. The rides were fab, the hacking was so quiet, even on the roads we only met three cars all day. The cottages and buildings in the area were outstandingly beautiful and so interesting to ride or walk around. Sarah F from Shepshed, Leicestershire - 21st June 2014 "We enjoyed living this 'rural idyll' in this delightful cottage.A memorable Boxing Day treat-many thanks for everything!"

The Bailey Family

Thanks for a lovely stay here, albiet only for a 2 days. A most generous and welcoming experience. We appreciated the hamper very much. We will probably appear here again as we have never really experienced and explored Shropshire. We will also be recommending it to our friends.

Specifically Recommend: If you are taking horses it’s perfect, if you are after a very tasteful country stay in a cottage from Country Living magazine then you will not be disappointed.

We've really enjoyed our first stay in Shropshire. We enjoyed visiting Stokesay Castle, walking on the Long Mynd and exploring Nordy Bank ( the local hill fort ). The cottage has been lovely- quiet, comfortable and relaxing.

Pete and Sue Churton

We have really enjoyed our stay at Stable Cottage. Jane and Rob were excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome. The riding was varied,sometimes challenging but always scenic! Kitty thought she had died and gone to heaven when we turned her out.

Ian and Lana (plus Kitten the horse)

Will not be disappointed, straight out of Country Living magazine” We took our two horses with us for this mini break with the dream of off-road riding and beautiful countryside, and we were not disappointed. The stables were fantastic, mega deep bedding, also on rubber, automatic waterers, and big, airy, stone stables with the most lush grass paddock for 24-7 use. The cottage was just as impressive, beautiful, superbly clean, quality finishing, luxury carpets, towels and bed linen, with lots of personal appropriate touches. It was so enjoyable to go to a place with such class in an area untouched by time. Looking forward to a return trip..

After riding for nearly 3 hours, Upper Heath Farm is a beautiful place to stay, stunning views and a tranquil setting, a lovely cottage with everything we could wish for, plus plenty of grazing and rest before heading off again!

The Parry family plus 4 horses

Lovely welcome, very friendly, comfortable cottage. We were lucky with the weather and did some nice walks from the house (fort is worth a visit) and in Church Stretton area. OS maps are very handy - thanks!
