Hubby and I stayed 2 nights so that we could , for the first time , visit Ludlow . We have not stayed in a guest house before so did not know whether we would like the intimacy of a smaller residence. However Henry and Carolyn soon put us at ease and we loved it .We arrived to tea and home made scones /jam and cream . On the first night we dined in and were cooked a beautiful 4 course meal , with canapes . The souffle was marvellous . Carolyn doing the cooking and Henry being waiter and host .We took our own wines and Henry kindly joined us in enjoying them . The next day we started with a wonderful home cooked breakfast ( having watched Henry gather the eggs the evening before )and we had real home made fried bread done in bacon fat just like my Mum used to do when I was young. When we got in ( wet ) from Ludlow we found a tray with home made fairy cakes for us .We went up for a rest before
dining at La Becasse in Ludlow and Carolyn helped arrange the taxi for us .On the last morning and another great breakfast .
The house is a treasure trove of items /photos and portraits and a lovely labrador called Copper .( not allowed into the residential side of house )
The house is in beautiful country side and is about a 15/20 minute drive into Ludlow .Well worth a visit .
