About 2 The Vineyard

2 The Vineyard is in the gorgeous Shropshire market town of Ludlow, within walking distance of Ludlow Castle, shops and friendly pubs like the Charlton Arms. The property has lovely features that include solid oak beams and a stone fireplace and is comfortably furnished to accommodate four people in two bedrooms. It's the perfect choice for a romantic couple's weekend away, a fun foodie break with friends or a relaxed holiday with your family.

Ludlow is a lively market town with excellent amenities. It's ideal as a place for a self-catering holiday because there's a lot to do in town and it is close to beautiful footpaths, cycleways, and picturesque scenery. Start your holiday with one of Ludlow's most famous sights - that of the church tower, castle and town roofs from Breadwalk. Cross the River Teme over the Ludford Bridge, about 250 metres from the cottage. Walk east beside the river and up through the Whitcliffe nature reserve to get the best views. Once you've seen enough, stroll down to Millenium Green by the River Teme over Dinham Bridge, and from there back up to the castle and town centre.

The cottage is just outside of Ludlow's town walls, a stone's throw from the only surviving medieval entrance gate - Broadgate - and a section of stone walls built in 1233 for fortification. The Broadgate's age makes the famous black and white timber buildings look almost modern by comparison, even though they are at least 400 years old. One of the finest examples is the Feathers Hotel which dates from 1619 and is just one of more than 500 listed buildings in Ludlow. If you're there on Boxing Day, you may witness a team from the Feathers compete in a tug-of-war against those from the Bull, a rival hotel over the road. It's loads of fun and just one of many charming quirks Ludlow embraces about its past. The town centre is a mix of independent shops and familiar names, and also an open-air market most days of the week and a fantastic array of excellent pubs, cafes, restaurants and specialist food shops. Ludlow's foodie scene is celebrated every year with an annual Food Festival (the UK's oldest) held over the second weekend in September.

Outside of town, the stunning Welsh Marches provide a wealth of footpaths, cycling routes, and fishing and golf opportunities. Mortimer Forest is less than a mile west of town with a choice of way-marked walking and cycling trails to suit all abilities. Hopton Wood is popular with local mountain bikers. You can hire bicycles locally if necessary. From the cottage, you can also visit Hereford's beautiful cathedral, the book town of Hay-on-Wye, or even spend a day shopping in Birmingham.

The high standard of accommodation at No 2 The Vineyard has been recognised with a 4-Star Gold Award from Shropshire Tourism. Guests rave about the peaceful surroundings, the convenient location and the thoughtful touches throughout.
