Reviewed November 15, 2012

Stayed recently for 3 nights. The owners ave very friendly and helpful. The quality of the breakfast is exceptional. Top quality produce prepared with a lot of love and care. A different freshly baked bread every morning didn't need toasting. More like a top restaurant. We particularly liked having a small basic kitchen with fridge, sink etc. After eating out in Ludlow the 10-15 minute walk back is quite refreshing or its a £5 taxi ride.

Room Tip: We had Whitcliffe room. Left curtains open to wake up each morning (when not foggy) to lovely views...

Stayed at Acorn Place whilst visiting Ludlow this week with my partner and baby girl.
Every aspect was lovely; from the decor to the clean, light and airy rooms, from the useful kitchen area to the immaculate bathroom.
Breakfast was, as others have said, a cut above the usual full English, the crockery and table settings lovely. Hand-cubed butter with a cute, ivory-handle knife? Golden sugar rather than white? Roasted tomatoes and home-made bread? Oh yes!
Peter is so lovely and I could have talked to him all day. He remembers your name and reason for your visit and took such an interest in our little girl.
It was like staying in someone's lovely home which is what so many B&Bs fail to achieve.
Would not hesitate to recommend.

There could be no finer B&B to stay at than Acorn Place.
Peter & Sally's attention to detail was faultless. The breakfast was the best we have tasted, locally sourced and lovingly cooked by Peter with a smattering of Dvorak in the background plus a lovely view, Bliss.
We stayed in Whitcliffe, which was a self contained en suite room with its own entrance via a conservatory, which held a full sized fridge,cooker and microwave which were all very useful for when we raided the Ludlow Food Centre. We dined splendidly, admiring the fabulous views of Lower Mynd.
Peter & Sally's beautiful house is surrounded by fields and set in lovely grounds with nice areas to relax. Although we didn't walk into Ludlow Town, it is not far if you are able, although may be a tad dark after sunset. On Peter's recommendation, we ate in The Unicorn Inn and we also can highly recommend it, the food, service and surroundings were perfect. All in all a very nice break, Peter & Sally were gracious hosts,we enjoying chatting and having a laugh with Peter and we would not hesitate in recommending them and returning to Acorn Place.

Room Tip: Self contained rooms both have private access, which is very freeing. Views from the Whitcliffe Roo...

The owners, Sally and Peter were very welcoming and their breakfast was brilliant- home baked bread, jams, award winning sausages, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. The house is lovely in a quiet location with beautiful views. Very comfortable- will definitely visit again.

I must do more than merely recommend this B&B...I would go so far as to insist that you stay there if you are lucky enough to visit the lovely city of Ludlow! We've visited this area six times now, and although all the places we have stayed have been excellent, this one stands out because of all the little extra touches that made our stay so enjoyable. It's ideally situated on the outskirts of Ludlow and within walking distance of the centre while enjoying the peace and quiet of the surrounding countryside with its beautiful views.

Our host, Peter, was there to welcome us warmly and within minutes we were chatting about the reason for our visit (house hunting): Peter and Sally moved to Ludlow five years ago from London, and it was fascinating to hear the story of their decision to make such a change in lifestyle.

The room we stayed in was charming: it was large enough for a sitting area with two armchairs and a TV/video/DVD player. There was an ensuite shower room, and the added bonus was a small conservatory which had been cleverly designed to incorporate a simple kitchen/diner complete with microwave, fridge, 2 ring hob and dining table: at Peter's suggestion, we took ourselves to the Ludlow Food Centre and returned with a delicious selection of nibbles for our evening meal. Each of the two B&B units has an independent entrance, which is so much better than creeping in through someone else's front door, and means you can come and go freely. There is also a good wifi connection.

Breakfast – served in the conservatory of the main house - was truly delicious. Again, the attention to detail was delightful, including a vase of fresh flowers on each of the two tables and Debussy playing quietly in the background. There was fruit juice, and a range of cereals/dried fruit/nuts/seeds with a bowl of fresh fruit salad (berries on that morning) and Greek yogurt: the bread was freshly baked (a white seeded loaf) and the cafetiere held coffee from Costa Rica. When the cooked part of the meal arrived, it was clear that Peter is a foodie...tomatoes roasted with basil, mushrooms baked with a hint of tarragon and two types of sausage. Absolutely faultless!

The following day, there was a fruit salad of nectarines and grapes, a cafetiere of Ethiopian coffee, freshly baked granary bread – and scrambled eggs perfectly cooked with smoked salmon, crème fraiche, a touch of Dijon mustard and a sprinkling of fresh dill served on a field mushroom baked in parsley butter and tomatoes roasted in oregano.

Suffice to say, on both days, we had no need of lunch!

Peter is a perfect host: he has an excellent knowledge of the local area and is more than happy to offer advice on places to visit. We are already looking forward to our next stay at Acorn Place...

We returned for a fifth visit to Acorn Place. This time was the best ever because we booked all three rooms for the family to come for a significant birthday celebration. As ever, Peter and Sally could not have been friendlier and more accommodating.They really are the perfect hosts. The breakfasts are magnificent and Peter obviously loves cooking. Our sons thought they'd died and gone to heaven! Mmmm, said the younger, I thoroughly approve of your B&B.

Good clean B&B, quiet location, very helpful hosts. Directions provided were clear and easy to follow and the premises are only a short walk from the town centre (10-15 mins). If walking back after dark, best to take a torch as there is an unlit stretch.
Breakfasts were very good, with locally sourced food, plenty of fresh fruit and good range of choices including cereals, home-made muesli and breads, yoghourt, and cooked food.
Hosts provided folder of info about the locality and gave good advice about where to go, etc.

Room Tip: We stayed in a purpose built annexe, so plenty of privacy, with private kitchen/sitting room and scr...
