We stayed in Threshers Cottage which was delightful, A very well equipped, comfortable, exceptionally clean 3 bed cottage, which had a fully enclosed garden for our dog, the cottage also had a conservatory, kitchen diner and separate utility room all with tiled floors. Outside there is a hose so you can easily clean your dogs paws after a lovely walks in the area and around the pretty village of Ashford Carbonell. Norman is a lovely man, who I exchanged several emails with before our visit, and couldn't have been more helpful when we finally met. I would have no hesitation recommending Ashford Farm Cottages to anyone. The situation near Ludlow is perfect too just 3 to 4 miles away.

Very nice location with a garden that we were able to relax in and let our dogs roam freely with no worries of them breaking out!

Two sets of nice patio doors that allowed very easy access and plenty of garden furniture to enjoy the sun from almost any direction.

Our hosts Norman and Linda were very friendly and helpfull

Very comfortable accomodation.

The Old Bull Pen is welcoming,tasteful,comfortable practical and very peaceful and private. All aspects exceeded our expectations with extras such as a cloakroom, in addition to the en-suites to every bedroom, private parking, an enclosed lawn with a patio and BBQ, a south facing courtyard, multiple external doors, a large kitchen diner with double doors, a cosy lounge,a utiliy room and temporary handles etc put in place to make life easier for my 87 year old mother, who has limited mobility and found the accommodation met her needs. Lynda and Norman make you feel very welcome. Every need you may have as a guest has been considered and catered for by them. We hope to return.

Hosts Norman & Lynda friendly & helpful. Warm Welcome. Cottage has all "mod-cons" plus delightful decor. Dreamy beds, beautiful linen, super-kitchen. Well designed bathroom, sparkling-new. Comfortable space everywhere. Excellent security & safety. Lovely garden.

Friendly, local people in delightful, active, village. Within easy reach by car to many places of interest, including the TV-famous "Acton Scott Historical Farm",(see the Shire horses), and several National Trust houses. For walkers, some of the most beautiful scenery in England. If you love the music "On Wenlock Edge" - come and see where it was inspired.

Beautiful house with everything you need and more. Our hosts were very welcoming and we felt so at home very quickly.

The children (ages 6&7) loved exploring the dell behind the cottage and the walks about the farm were perfect for our little two.

Peaceful cottage and location. Perfectly placed talk to explore the wonderful county and countryside.

Thank you for a really great few days. We'd recommend to anyone and we'd love to go back.

Cottage Review:  

On booking Well Meadow Cottage, I had a feeling that it was going to be a special place because of the way it was described to be so dog friendly and because of communications with Norman beforehand. He seemed like such a lovely chap and that came across on email. On arrival, we were welcomed by Lynda who was lovely and explained about walks in the area and about the fact that we could use all their fields for walking the dogs (we visited at a time when the sheep were away for lambing so had full access to most of the fields owned by the farm). It was amazing, stress free dog walking in a beautiful part of the UK. So peaceful and so pretty.

The welcome pack was a lovely touch with some beautiful locally made jam, beer and other goodies.

Well Meadow cottage itself is just ideal when you have dogs. The kitchen floor is tiled and all the doors can be securely closed so that dogs can sleep in the space comfortably.

The outside garden is fully enclosed so again, this is perfect for four legged friends.

The inside of the cottage is a lovely and spacious for a 2 bedroomed property. Its also well equipped. It's especially nice that the cottage is down it's own track so you are away from it all, yet the owners are on hand at the farm , down the lane should you need anything.

We have stayed at many properties over the last 10 years with our dogs, probably about 3 cottages per year on average. Well Meadow was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed that suited ours and the dogs needs perfectly. It's also very well located for Ludlow, with the town being approx 3-4 miles away.

We don't tend to go back to the same property twice as we like to see different places but this place was an absolute delight and we would definitely love to come back sometime. Big thank you to Norman and Lynda for being such lovely hosts.

What can I say? Even before arriving, I knew this would be a lovely holiday. Norman was friendly and welcoming via email so it was no surprise he would be the same in person.

Threshers cottage is beautiful! All the things you would expect to be there, were and a whole lot more. It was comfortable, clean, tidy and so very well equipped.

There is a comfortable living room with open fire, a well equipped kitchen and utility room. A conservatory which looks out on to a private garden. The bedrooms were simply furnished and the beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms were immaculate and boutique style toiletries added a finishing touch. Norman and Lynda have done a fabulous job creating a home from home for their guests. They went above and beyond providing everything any guest would require. The little extras; books,board games and lots of local information provided in the cottage, made our time there so very easy.

I would book again in a heartbeat and plan to do so as soon as possible.

Stayed in Threshers cottage - absolutely perfect. It is well equipped and immaculately maintained, warm and welcoming - a real home from home. It allowed us to really wind down and relax. Norman and Lynda have created a wonderful atmosphere and are a mine of useful local information. The village is also very pretty and people are very friendly. Our Golden Retriever thought it was paradise! Cannot praise everything enough - we will be booking again.

We stayed in the Bull Pen five years ago for our 40th Wedding Anniversary and loved the cottage. Visiting last week the high standard of accommodation, facilities and cleanliness had not dropped at all. and we also rented Threshers which was equally fantastic. All of our party sent emails afterwards saying how good it was.

Make up of party:  This time it was a school reunion for 9 of us. The cottages provided a wonderful base for exploring the surrounding countryside and we had timed it to go to the Ludlow food festival. Brilliant week.

Was staying here with my parents for a short break. Having stayed in others of Norman and Lynda's Cottages I can safely say that, once again, a 5* holiday was had by all. The quality of the properties is second to none, with detailed and useful information on everything you could possibly want and need. Dog friendly in the truest sense, Family friendly, Warm Welcoming, extremely comfortable, home from home. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend any of the cottages here, the location. This wasn't our first and I doubt it will be our last stay here. Absolutely fabulous.

We have stayed in others of Norman and Lynda’s cottages previously, over Christmas or New Year, and always had a fantastic time. This was our first time in Summer, and our first time at the Old Bull Pen. We were able to enjoy the reality of the two sun-trap patios (they catch the sun at different times of day). The cottage’s facilities were ideal for a family time, gathering together our grownup children who now live far away from us, and making their dogs welcome too. Safe enclosed garden areas, great for dogs or young children. Plenty of dog-friendly and child-friendly walks right from the cottage, through the fields and farmland, or through the village. Lots of helpful information and maps, also for more energetic walkers/hikers on outdoor pursuits; and a large choice of indoor activities if the weather is bad: choose a book from the large selection, play a game, do a jigsaw, listen to music (radio, CD player, iPod dock) – or even watch television!

All the cottages are of the highest standard of cleanliness and convenience, with all home comforts. The owners live nearby, are always ready to help, but never intrusive.

The location is superb, the countryside on your doorstep, but the facilities (markets, supermarkets, shops, pubs, restaurants, takeaways) of a town are less than ten minutes’ drive away. Support local food producers by shopping at the Ludlow Food Centre. Enjoy a full English breakfast in the Kitchen there. There are many interesting and lovely places to visit within easy reach. We never tire of it.

Make up of party:  Family - OAP couple with grownup children and dogs. Visited also by a niece and her family (two girls, aged 8 and 4). Spent two weeks here.

We stayed in the Old Bull Pen. This is a lovely cottage with very good facilities. The weather was bitterly cold but we were always cosy and warm inside. The kitchen facilities are excellent. So many thoughtful touches such as dog towels, bowls etc. and lovely cake for the humans. We got plenty of useful advice on places to go with the dog in and around Ludlow. The village is very pretty and we did some good walks straight from the door. The patio areas around the cottage are lovely with very comfortable furniture. It would be a real sun trap if the sun had shone!

It is everything you would want in a holiday cottage and more.There is always a lovely welcome pack waiting for you on arrival.The owners are friendly and helpful without being intrusive.The village is quiet and the locals friendly.Dogs are most welcome and they provide blankets, towel and a bowl for them. Ludlow is 15mins drive away with a variety local shops,supermarkets, bars and restaurants.

We have stayed in the other cottages in the past which are of the same standard. We would highly recommend Ashford Farm Cottages, you will not be disappointed.

We have stayed at Ashford Farm for 9 years. The cottages are superb and of an excellent standard. The location is perfect with a variety of walks from the door, but with the added benefit of many local attractions being in easy reach including Croft Castle and local Forestry Commission sites. Excellent dog walking country. The cottages are very comfortable and the hosts are extremely helpful. Wood burning fire is wonderful and we love the home comforts. We are definitely going back again next year and recommend Ashford Farm as a wonderful cottage holiday venue

This was our first stay in Grazers Cottage on Ashford Farms but definitely not our last - the property is in a lovely village ideally located to explore Shropshire. The cottage is well maintained with lovely homely furnishings and is equipped with everything you would want for a self catering holiday. A lovely cake and welcome basket were left for us, which are the finer touches to make it all the more special. The owner was very helpful and friendly and told us about lots of places and walks around Shropshire as it was our first time there. We had a wonderful time and have recommended it to our family and friends. Cannot wait to return!

A very peaceful environment and,in our cottage,no immediate neighbours. Plenty of easy walking around local farmland. Several NT properties within easy reach. Ludlow itself is charming. It is difficult to say how the cottage could be bettered. The smaller of the two bedrooms is, perhaps, a little cramped for two adults.

The cottage is furnished to a very high standard & is extremely comfortable. You feel at home straight away.

There is always a welcoming hamper, including a super homemade cake to enjoy on arrival.

Lynda & Norman are very friendly & helpful & always make you feel welcome.

The cottage is situated within it's own garden area & is peaceful & quiet.Plenty of outside seating is provided.

There are many interesting places to visit in the area including Ludlow with it's castle, market & restaurants.

We have stayed at Ashford Farm at least once each year since 1989 - we love it! Norman and Lynda Tudge set themselves high standards in everything needed to make a stay in any of the cottages a pleasure. Added to the attractions of beautiful countryside and a welcoming community in a quiet rural village, nearby Ludlow offers the opportunity to enjoy the quality of life in an outstanding, ancient market town. Beyond that, there is something for everyone in this part of Shropshire - what more could anyone ask?

We have been visiting Ashford Farm Cottages at least once a year for each of the fifteen years since we were lucky enough to find this lovely place. All of the complimentary things people have already said are fully justified - not only about the cottages and their facilities but also about the rural, village setting and the attention to detail devoted to it by the owners, Norman and Lynda Tudge - all-in-all, a perfect place for whatever one could want to do.

Having just returned from a week at Ashford Farm Cottages and reflecting on this and nine earlier visits over the same number of years the majority of which have been ay Well Meadow we continue to appreciate the peace and tranquillity offered by the cottage surrounded by farmland and situated in a quiet village with no through road. The cottage itself is furnished and maintained at a very high standard with all facilities and an enclosed garden. The owners Lynda and Norman are on site and make you very welcome including an array of goodies as soon as you arrive. There are excellent opportunities for walking both locally across the farmland and from the village whilst further afield there are several areas of outstanding natural beauty.

Well Meadow is in a private setting down a track from the main farm house.It offers a high standard of cleanliness and comfort with it's own enclosed garden [perfect for us as we have a little dog]..

We have stayed in the past in one of the other property's to rent on the farm and this too was of the same high standard.

Would highly recommend any of Ashford Farm cottages and can't wait to return again next year. [Added at Editor's discretion since it appears to be a helpful review and the reviewer has been authenticated]

We have so far stayed 3 times in Grazers Cottage at Ashford Farm. It is a comfortable, warm, immaculately clean 3 bed roomed

property with a lovely conservatory and a large and totally dog proof garden. The cottage is very well maintained and with lots of little extras it always feels like home straight away. The cottage is situated on the quiet main street of the village which itself is very pretty, with friendly locals and lots of interesting walks from the door. The equally friendly owners live on site and are readily available with any help or information that might be required. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

Make up of party:  2/3adults plus 2dogs.

We have been to Ashford Farm 6 times in all now - and we've booked a 7th visit. The cottages are all exceptionally presented and very well equipped. It's especially quiet in the village and the people are all very friendly and happy to chat to you. an ideal place to base yourself for exploring this special area.

This is our 3rd stay at Ashford Farm Cottages. If you\'re looking for a walk-in, unpack your bags and feel instantly at home - this is it! Right down to the home-made cake on the table ready for that first cup of tea. There is nothing that isn\'t exceptional about these cottages and their owners. Can recommend.

Excellent cottage. Everything provided that one could possibly need. A pleasure to stay in. In fact we could have stayed there for months! A lovely welcoming hamper provided. Ideal location for exploring. We enjoyed visiting Ludlow, Stokesay Castle and Powis Castle to name a few.

We have stayed at Ashford Farm Cottages for the last 6 years. Each cottage has a home from home feel, all is provided for you even down to the tea towels, washing liquid. Lovely log fires which are great in the winter. Lynda and Norman live on site, and are very approachable if anything needs to be done. Ludlow has many lovely places to eat and each cotage has a guest book, with places to go and eat, and also where to avoid, based on other peoples reviews. One you have stayed in at Ashford Farm cottages, you will always return back.

Having stayed four times at Threshers Cottage it has always been very clean, and well appointed, with a home from home feeling. Ideal location for visiting Shropshire and the surrounding area. Mr & Mrs Tudge really make you feel very welcome.

We have been visiting Ashford Farms Cottages for over ten years. During that time we have stayed in each one of their cottages. They have all been maintained to an extremely high standard.

We thoroughly enjoy our stays and look forward to our next visit. There is always a warm welcome from Linda, Norman and of course Ruby

I rent this cottage every summer because it has everything I want in a holiday destination. My mother is very elderly and it is a perfect location for her. Facilities throughout the cottage are excellent, especially the conservatory and large garden. I can take my dog and there are some wonderful walks on the farm itself and through the village. The owners are lovely - they leave you alone but, at the same time, are always on hand should there be a problem and going the extra mile this summer by providing a wheelchair was just fantastic. I would recommend this property 100% to anybody - just as long as there is still room for me!
