“Simply the Best!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2010

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at PTF. The standard of everything was second to none. Fantastic welcome from Stephen, Jill & the animals on arrival, lovely home cooked locally sourced food, good wine and a charming house. We instantly felt at home. We were also very lucky with the fact that the four other guests were lovely so we enjoyed two evening meals in excellent company. The house is very interesting with lots of things to look at, photographs, books and a great CD collection. Stephen & Jill are perfect hosts and if anyone is thinking of going into this business they should spend time at PTF to see how to do it properly.

We stayed for a long weekend here with friends to celebrate a birthday, and the six of us (3 couples) took over the whole house. Steve and Jill were delightful hosts - in fact perfect hosts. They were welcoming friendly and helpful, and served up delicious food. We stayed in for one evening and enjoyed a fantastic meal - all local produce, beautifully cooked and presented. Breakfast was a delight too - freshly squeezed juice, home made marmalade and jam, nice cereals and cooked...including devilled kidneys! The house itself was warm and cosy and very relaxing to be in. On the doorstep are lovely walks and of course Ludlow with its 3 michelin starred restaurants (we enjoyed La Becasse). On our last night we decided to eat in the local pub, which afforded us a sight we have never witnessed before: a cushion fight in the public bar! We've never been to Shropshire before, and would like to return: this was a perfect weekend. I can't recommend this place highly enough

If you want complete luxury at affordable prices then this must be one of the best places to stay in England. We've stayed in many places in the UK over the years, and generally been disappointed with the standard of accommodation, unless you pay an absolute fortune. Your stay in this beautiful home will begin with the warmest welcome you are ever likely to have, even your mother won't make you feel at home as Jill and Steve did. Tea and cakes on the lawn on arrival, what a great way to start a holiday in this glorious, unspoilt part of England. If only every travel experience was a good as this. They also do a great three course evening meal if you want. Don't bother with the Michelin star restaurants in Ludlow, you need go no further than Pear Tree Farm.

To you, a fellow traveler: I sincerely hope that you get the chance to stay at Pear Tree Farm. You will enjoy every moment.

My husband and I spent our anniversary weekend with Jill and Steve and it was absolutely perfect. We arrived a bit late, but Jill and Steve eagerly greeted and welcomed us with a pot of tea. We awoke to the sound of little baby lambs (you should definitely visit in March so you can witness these adorable creatures learn how to walk and talk). After I took a million photos of the little ones, we went downstairs for the most scrumptious breakfast. It is the kind of breakfast where you have to have a bit of everything and then about half way through you realize that you are just going to go for it and make it your breakfast AND lunch. Jill is a master at the Agar and Steve has been making homemade bread since he was six.

We spent our Saturday on an INCREDIBLE walk that took us to the ruins of Wigmore Castle and then through the hills of Herefordshire. You literally wander through open fields and farms and find yourself right in the middle of the lambs and ewes. Lovely.

We came home to tea and a coffee/pecan cake (Jill is a culinary genius) that demanded I eat 2 slices. Freddie (perhaps the coolest cat I have met) joined us on the couch for a little relaxation. And what afternoon tea would be complete without a little cider. Steve has many talents! He makes his own cider and it is fabulous.

If it is possible to out-do breakfast, Jill completely wow-ed us with dinner. It was truly a feast.

I find myself wanting to use over the top adjectives to describe what a wonderful time we had here, but none of them seem to suffice. So I will just say that you must find a way to experience the beauty yourself. You will wish you could stay....always.

My husband booked our weekend break at Pear Tree Farm as a surprise for my 40th birthday and I can't begin to tell you how many brownie points he's earned for making such a fine decision.

We were the only couple staying this particular weekend, as Jill was away, and they decided not to take any more bookings to ensure that Steve could maintain the very high standards of service they pride themselves upon. I have to say he exceeded them. Delicious homemade bread, incredible breakfasts made with locally sourced products, hot crumpets by the fire, a tea tray delivered to our room every morning - we were well and truly spoiled. Add to that his excellent local knowledge, which ensured that we experienced a few hidden gems that we otherwise might have missed, and he really did make the perfect host. Meg, Mol and Freddie (the resident animals) were also a joy to spend time with.

We stayed in the Sea Room, a comfortable, nautically themed room with a beautiful view of the garden. The best thing about this room though is the bathroom - with its roll top bath, chaise longue and rich red walls it really is the ultimate in decadence and the perfect place to relax with G&T.

Pear Tree Farm was an incredible find and I hope we will be able to return again and again.

We stayed here for 2 days in July and had the most wonderful weekend. The house and grounds are immaculate - such a treat from the hustle and bustle of London. Steve and Jill are the perfect hosts. Food is delicious and plentiful. Homemade jams, chutneys and bread delightful. Homemade cider very potent!

Do try the hammocks, if you are lucky enough to have good weather I can't imagine a more decadent way to while away a couple of hours

We had had dinner here on the Saturday night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Their attention to detail is amazing and the food (all locally sourced) was stunning. They cater for fussy eaters (like me) and nothing is too much trouble.

Did I mention Meg and Mol? The fire lanterns? The delicious tea and cakes in the garden? I think I have gushed enough. I can't recommend this place, or Steve and Jill, highly enough. Will be returning next year. And the year after.

Stayed here for 3 nights 2nd - 5th Jan. Christmas was well and truly over but PTF had kept their tree up for us which was very sweet. On arrival we were welcomed heartily by Steve, Jill and the animals and offered tea/coffee which came beautilly presented with homemade mince pies which were to die for. We had booked dinner there that night as it going to be after 5.00 when we got there. We had no idea what to expect but felt that it would save us searching around on our first night. As it transpired, Steve & Jill had been cooking for hours, they handed us a personalised menu which included fillet of beef for mains and chocolate torte for afters. The food was fantastic, we were actually embarassed that they had gone to so much trouble! Several glasses of wine were had before retiring with our petit fours to the comfort of the wood burning stove in the sitting room. Our room was personally decorated and spotless, the bed was comfy and warm. The bathroom was stunning - huge old beams and painted a rich dark colour and complete with chaise and roll-top bath. I won't even go into how good the breakfast was suffice to say we were very unsure walking would be possible for the remainder of the day. The three nights here were memorable. I have left lots more great stuff out but perhaps that's a good thing because it's always nice to find out for yourself. I will end by saying that I do not write glowing reviews lightly but this place and these people gave me faith that it is still possible to have your expectations exceeded...in spades
