Unique experience of house and owner.

I’ve given this four stars because it’s nothing like any other Tudor home I’ve visited. I can see... read more

It is looked after by a charming gentleman. All the rooms are genuine Tudor and the carving has to be seen to be believed in every room. It is in need of care and attention and a grant is necessary to help with this.

Beautiful beautiful house, it's such a crime that the owners do not get help to maintain this house and bring it back to its former glory!!
So much history going to waste and so much potential going to ruin!

Please someone help this house before it becomes just another ruin!!

Greeted! By disheveled old bloke who was only interested in the 3£ each entrance fee. He didn't even say hello.
The house though interesting in itself was empty and poor. A complete lack of any information about the house, the area, or the Tudor times in Ludlow, half of the house is 'Private' we were left alone to wander and wonder about this poor attraction, best advise leave it out of your visit.

There is a sense of doom and gloom in this once stately home. The empty rooms, with ornate stained glass windows and wood carved walls are now filled with rolled up carpets and sparse of any furniture and life. There is a shrine to the paranormal activity of the home on the third floor as well as a room for the deceased wife of the home's owner lend to the overall despair and disrepair this home has fallen to. It deserves to be bought, refurbished and returned to it's glory. It's location right beside Ludlow Castle would be excellent for a hotel, pub or museum. It's a shame that such a building has fallen so far.

An old building with a suit of armour in the window. Looked interesting from the outside but after paying £3 there was nothing but an empty house. That is - the wooden panelling in the this Tudor house was amazing but what about the leather sofa from DFS in the window?? The same goes for the ten empty rooms upstairs with one room having photocopies of ghostly photos on the wall. Sad and tacky would be a good way of describing this house. It needs someone like English Heritage to take it over but - as it is - I would tell people to use the £3 in a better way by going for a cuppa and a cake in the cafe next door.
