Near Ludlow


Welcome to Ashford Farm, just 3 miles from Ludlow, and the perfect base from which to explore the Welsh Marches.

Shropshire, the undiscovered county, was described by P G Wodehouse as 'the nearest earthly approach to paradise' and the jewel in the county is Ludlow, a gastronomic delight with its upmarket restaurants and excellent pubs and places to eat. The imposing castle is a reminder of the town's historic importance. Still an active market town, its half timbered buildings and fine Georgian houses cannot fail to impress.

Attractions: Acton Scott Working Farm and Museum, site of the 'Victorian Farm' TV series. The West Midland Safari Park & Severn Valley Railway.

National Trust: Easy day trips include Croft Castle (and Ambrey), Berrington Hall, Brockhampton Estate, Hanbury Hall, Attingham Park, Dudmaston Hall and the unmissable Powys Castle.

English Heritage: Stokesay Castle, Witley Court & gardens, Boscobel House, Wroxeter Roman City, Wenlock Priory and Ironbridge Gorge a World Heritage Site of interest to all.

Beauty Spots for walking: Mortimer Forest, the Long Mynd and Cardingmill Valley (NT), the Stiperstones, Clee Hill & Wenlock Edge.

Gardens : Hampton Court, Burford House, Stockton Bury & Hergest Croft.

All cottages have open fires or woodburning stoves and all have landline phones and WiFi.

Meet the owner

Lynda or Norman Tudge

Lynda & Norman Tudge met at Reading University in 1970 and have lived at Ashford Farm since 1974. We continued the farm as a dairy unit until 1989, then a beef unit until 1998 when we sold all our livestock and started holiday letting, having built the three original cottages ourselves with the help of local craftsmen. We then went on to develop Well Meadow in 2005 and the Old Bull Pen in 2008. For 2016 we have taken two cottages out of holiday letting simply to reduce our work load (old age!!) so we are back to three cottages. We have retained the farmland which is let for grazing sheep and horses. Some of our land furthest away is let to the village fruit farm for growing strawberries and raspberries and some for potatoes and cereals.
