Stayed only one night in April 2013 travelling between relatives. Ground floor room was great- very clean and spacious. Breakfast was very good with fresh local produce. A meander through the town is a must. Had we not been on a deadline, would have loved to stay a little longer. Would definitely recommend.

I stayed at the Hen and Chickens for two nights in March. The room was very comfortable, charming, spotlessly clean and with a wonderfully HUGE bed! The breakfast was scrumptious and our hosts were very welcoming and friendly. We actually booked at a different and shall-remain-nameless b&b in Ludlow and had to change our minds at the last minute because... More

My sister and I took my elderly parents to Ludlow for a couple of days visit. We stayed in Hawfinch and Bullfinch rooms in Vine Cottage. Lovely rooms, smart and recently decorated with very comfortable beds. Charlotte and Jimmy were hugely accommodating, helping with my dad's mobility problem and with car parking. Breakfasts were generous and delicious. A great base... More

We stayed a couple of nights and sought a B&B that was close to the town centre and had off-road parking. A five minute walk from the market area with a great number of nearby pubs - for food and for drink. Spoilt for choice. The room was spacious, very well equipped and the welcome was augmented by a great... More

We stayed at the Hens & Chickens for 7 nights, so we got a quite comprehensive impression of this B & B. Of course we checked the homepage of the Hens & Chickens beforehand and have been reliefed that the pictures on the homepage faithfully showed, what we found when we arrived. The room (Goldfinch) is very spacious and was... More

I first stayed here about a month ago, booking at the last minute for a walking weekend with a friend. We stayed in the twin room at the top of the house and it was perfect for our needs. A pleasant surprise considering we booked at the last minute. I had an eventful journey as the road into Ludlow was... More

I chose this B and B for a family weekend to celebrate my mum's 89th birthday. As there was 8 of us we hired all the rooms. Charlotte and Jimmy the proprietors were very helpful before and during our stay as I wanted to ensure the room for mum was suitable as she has limited mobility. They also gave us... More

We wanted a quiet break for a few days to re-charge our batteries and came across the Hen and Chicken Guest House when looking for accommodation around the Ludlow area. We chose to stay in Vine Cottage at the rear of the Hens and Chickens guest house, rather than the main building, because the phographs showed a modern bedroom with... More

This is a clean but very plainly decorated property which could do with modernising. A totally average offering with little to enthuse a return visit.
