We enjoyed the tour of the house and hearing of its rich history. It was in the perfect location for exploring the town with its wealth of small independent shops and...

2 adults and 2 kids. We experienced a lovely stay in a peaceful, central, friendly Tudor house, made even more special by a tour and history of the property. Bedrooms were clean, breakfast menu very flexible and beds comfortable. We read in the library and enjoyed every second of our stay.

We arrived on a Saturday evening and were amazed at the suite which had two bedrooms a bathroom and a shower room. The quality of the furnishings and the fabulous history of the house was second to none. The breakfast was good and we were made to feel welcome, it didn't have the feel of a hotel but more like...

We wanted 5 rooms for 2 nights in Ludlow as our group of friends meet up at least twice a year. This was a real find, not a hotel but better accommodation close to the town centre. Period rooms with a 4 poster bed in 2 of the rooms. Breakfast included was 75 yards down the street and it was...

From start to finish the customer service we received was absolutely fantastic. A fabulous family run business centred solely on providing the best possible guest experience. The rooms were furnished beautifully, the bathroom was stunning with a free standing roll top bath taking centre stage. The breakfast was to a high standard and set in a beautiful room overlooking the...

If you're a history buff you'll love this place, if you aren't...you'll still love this place. Great location, free parking in the NCP car park around the back, the house itself looks incredible and we were treated to a guided tour by Tony. Breakfast was delicious and the whole vibe of the place was completely relaxed. Definitely worth staying if...

Booked a hen party for the weekend. What a fabulous place. Huge rooms each with its own history and character and with a fantastic cellar bar to top off the nights. We absolutely loved it. Wonderful house in an ideal location. A very warm and helpful welcome from the owner helped too.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Old House in Dogpole sits on an original Anglo-Saxon plot leading down to the River Severn. After the Norman Conquest in 1066, Shrewsbury was fortified and the town wall cut through the garden, but the plot remained intact. The house was rebuilt as a timber framed Tudor mansion around two massive brick chimneys in the late 1490s and retains much of this original character. The house had strong connections with Catherine of Aragon. She married Arthur (brother of Henry VIII) at nearby Ludlow Castle in South Shropshire where she finally returned after her divorce from her later marriage to Henry VIII. Members of the Rocke family were courtiers of Catherine and also owners of The Old House, and there is a tradition that Mary Tudor stayed in the house on her way to visit her mother. ... more   less
