What an absolute find the Manor House is, fantastic place to relax or play golf, tennis etc...brilliant for the kids too with a large playground and a zip wire, fun for all guaranteed
Special mention to Emma, Chris and Jack who maintain the property all year round to pristine standards.
Would definitely recommend and would definitely consider going back
Manor House Richards Castle near Ludlow. Great location, beautiful clean and comfortable accommodation with a friendly, helpful house manager Emma, her husband Chris and son Jack living in separate house on site. Emma was really helpful and there if you needed anything but unobtrusive if you just wanted to get on with enjoying your stay. There is plenty to do for all ages with games provided in the games room and lots more outside. Our party particularly enjoyed the pool table as it evoked memories of fun times in our youth. Also we really enjoyed having a choice of sitting rooms with or without television so that conversations could go ahead without either causing disturbance or being distracted. All in all a beautiful retreat in a peaceful setting where you can be as active or lazy as you. We will undoubtedly be back. Thank you Jo for the use of your property.
Our family of 10 ranging from 70 years old down to 5, thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in this superb property. The play area, gardens and games for the kids, the challenging golf, tennis and more games for the older kids i.e. adults.
The secluded. private setting and quality offered, for us, exceeded expectations and could not have been bettered. The Manor House manager Emma, husband Chris and their Jack, living in an adjacent property, were friendly helpful and fun and added to the whole experience.
Thank you Joanna for lending us your family home, this hopefully will be the first of many.
Our party was 10 people from 10 months old to nearly 70 years and we all had a fabulous time celebrating our Ruby wedding anniversary. The house was very well maintained, spotlessly clean and all the furniture and fittings of good quality. The house manager Emma and her husband Chris were very welcoming and helpful but unobtrusive and just let us get on with enjoying the long weekend.
The golf holes were of much better quality than we were expecting and proved a genuine challenge for the regular golfers and great fun for the novices. There were 4 greens, 6 tees and the holes varied from 70 to 120 yards.
The gardens were a delight and fortunately the weather allowed us to enjoy them. We had a barbecue on the Sunday and sat outside chatting until quite late in a completely peaceful and quiet environment. Apart from ourselves all you could hear were the birds. No traffic noise or any other disturbance.
It's hard to find anything to criticise without being ridiculously fussy (perhaps a clothes hanging rail in the 3rd double room?) but a hearty thank you to Johanna and her team.
A large group of us stayed in this beautiful house last year and, as we all loved it so much, we immediately booked it for Easter this year. You really couldn't wish for any more. The house and surroundings are stunning and the grounds are ideal for keeping the children entertained while a round of golf is being played. It's a wonderful escape.
We've just returned from a 4 night stay at the house. We were a group of 6 adults, 4 toddlers and a baby. We were greeted by Emma who was brilliant and on hand throughout the week if we needed anything. The house is fantastic and the gardens were perfect for our children to play in all day long without getting bored. The golf went down very well too. We will definitely be returning next year and would thoroughly recommend. We didn't really venture into Ludlow as we had enough to entertain us at the house !
We stayed here for a family get together and had a fantastic time. The house was beautiful, very well equipped, bright and very well maintained with plenty of room for 12 people. There's lots to do for all the family with a pool table, air hockey, tennis, golf, trampoline, zip wire and lots more. Emma the house manager and her husband were really helpful and very friendly. Highly recommended.
