The detail

This former fire station sits on the high street of the historic market town Ludlow and overlooks beautiful period buildings. With four bedrooms and two reception rooms, it makes the perfect base for families and groups of friends looking to spend time together and explore the lovely local area. The property has been beautifully renovated and furnished, mostly from sourced from local artisans and suppliers, but much of the character has been retained. Original features appear throughout, from the large fire bell which hangs on by the front door to the timber beams and exposed brick inglenook fireplace.

A modern kitchen is the perfect place to start the stay. Pop the kettle on for a round of tea for weary travellers in this modern and well-equipped space. Beautiful marble tiles compliment a hardwood counter top with plenty of lighting to illuminate the cook as they chop, slice and crush. The kitchen space leads to the open plan living and dining area. Enjoy pre-dinner drinks on the luxurious velvet corner sofa in front of the gas stove which is set into the exposed brick fireplace. There is plenty of space for all the guests so it's a great area to relax, catch-up and plot the day's activities. A large wooden dining table, with plenty of seating and space for all, overlooks the high street and pendant chandelier-style lights create a warm atmosphere perfect for lengthy suppers and late nights.

There is a further reception room with a television and comfy leather chairs and a big sofa. This is a great spot to enjoy a bit of quiet time or catch up on new releases and family favourites. Musical guests will love sitting at the piano and entertaining friends and family with a singsong.

At bedtime, there are four exquisite bedrooms to pick from. They all have high quality mattresses and Egyptian cotton linen. Equally stylish, two have king-sized beds while others can be transformed into twins, depending on guests' requirements. The house has three bathrooms, including two en-suites, with luxurious toiletries, dense towels and stylish fittings.

Pretty Ludlow is surrounded by countryside, which is visible from the high street, and a must visit is the famous castle which is just short walk from the house. Head to the Harp Lane Deli for baskets of picnic goodies and make the 20 minute trip to the lovely Carding Mill Valley and Long Mynd for hikes, bikes and picnics on the river bank.
