Looking for a break away from city life we came across this great B&B on TripAdvisor and after reading the glowing reports from previous contributors thought we would give it a try. Believe me we were not disappointed. Jan and Fred are the perfect mine hosts. Tea and biscuits were served on arrival and then we were shown up to...

This is a traditional bed and breakfast with a personal touch. The location is rural and about a mile outside the town of Ludlow. The walk into the town centre takes about 20 minutes and is a pleasant walk. Our bedroom was spotless and tastefully decorated, in fact the whole property was gorgeous and is a credit to the owners....

Very friendly people. Lovely room which was very clean with all the facilities you could want. The best breakfast ever! The house is located just outside of Ludlow away from the crowds. Good parking facilities within the grounds of the house.

We stayed for 2 nights and it was great. Jan & Fred are a fantastic couple and made us very welcome. It was very comfortable and cosy. The breakfast was superb. With a 20 mins walk into Ludlow it is an ideal place to stay and exploring the local area. Thanks for looking after us and hopefully we will return...

Set back from the A4117 and about a mile from the centre of Ludlow, is a delightful bed and breakfast ‘home away from home’ with ample car parking space . It is run by Jan and Fred who, six years ago, took over and revitalised an earlier version. They provide a warm, caring, welcome to their spotlessly clean and well...

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at Nelson Cottage. Easy to find with off-road parking. Our room was very clean with a view of the countryside. Jan & Fred were friendly, offering a good breakfast to start the day and very helpful regarding places to eat and to visit. Thoroughly recommend.

Shower had very poor flow and pressure, bath ok. Sink plug had black underneath.
