Ludlow Castle
Reviewed 15 October 2010

Everything about staying here is fantastic. We had the top floor apartment (Comus) and the rooms were lovely ... and our very own terrace where we watched the sun go down sipping our complementary bottle of wine. The entrance to the apartments thrilled us every time, as huge door set into castle walls even though you're going through to spacious contemporary apartments.
Helen (the custodian) was also a gem ! She has a real passion for the place and it shows

The Ludlow Castle Apartments capped off the most perfect tour of England! Reservations very easy, and we were greeted with wine, cheese, bread, milk, tea and coffee, eggs all in our kitchen, with a full dining room, living room, two elegant bedrooms and baths. We immediately adopted to the slower pace of this wonderful city, and loved the village shops. Would love to stay here a month or more. Only drawback--could not find an open restaurant during the week for dinner! Oh, well, we had our own kitchen, and a market just a block away. Wonderful place, and plenty of room for a family.

We stayed for a 3 night break over Valentines weekend after finding the details via an online search. Booking was easy by telephone and everyone we spoke to was extremely helpful. The apartment (Prince Arthur & Catherine of Aragon) was exactly as it appears in the photos - no unexpected surprises! It was beautifully decorated and very comfortable with all the facilities you would need. It was also very warm and cosy - very important in early February and the welcome pack was delightful. We enjoyed sipping our wine and looking out at the view of the wonderfully spooky castle ruins. Ludlow town centre is just a step outside the door but the apartment is very peaceful - no traffic or other noise to disturb the atmosphere. There is a designated parking space for each apartment just outside the main castle entrance, although we did find that if we went out during the day, sneaky shoppers would pinch the spaces! Luckily we usually returned around 5 p.m. so most shoppers had left by then! We would certainly recommend Ludlow Castle Apartments for the standard of accommodation and the friendly, helpful welcome, as well as the fantastic location.

Welcome from Pam was great - there was bread, crackers, butter, cheese, jam, coffee, tea and wine waiting for us.

Apt was large with two bedrooms and two baths, full kitchen including dishwasher and laundry and so gorgeous.

Ludlow is the ultimate English town - with a daily market in the square.

Wonderful and we would go back anytime!

Visitors to Ludlow may already know the castle as a magnificent ruin dominating the town. We visited it last summer and spotted that they've opened special apartments within the castle walls, so we booked to stay there. There are three self-catering apartments; ours was the Prince Arthur and Catherine of Aragon suite. (Prince Arthur, Henry VIII's elder brother, honeymooned with Catherine of Aragon there. He died before he could become king and Henry took the throne and his brother's wife, which ended up causing a bit of trouble).
This is not a cheap option, but it is fantastic. Ludlow says it aims to make visitors feel like honoured guests while they stay in the town, and the castle's Custodians, who personally welcome you with a basket of goodies and wine, certainly live up to that. The rooms are gorgeous, and we had the castle all to ourselves as it isn't open to the public in January.
It's also a perfect base to explore Ludlow and the surrounding countryside, pubs and hills and good food.
