Overview

Ludlow Castle is an unusually complete range of medieval buildings with a varied history evident within its walls. We are host to a number of events that run between April and November, information of which is available at the local tourist information centre and on our website. Castle House was one of the last grand mansions built in Ludlow. It was sympathetically restored in 2006 by the current Earl of Powis and provides a range of Independent shops, Tea Rooms with an idyllic outside terrace during the summer months; function rooms that are available for civil ceremonies, weddings, parties, wakes, meetings The 3 no. self catering apartments are available for 3, 4 and 7 night stays. All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, well equipped kitchens and sitting/dining rooms and views of the castle that are unparalleled. The Tea Room is a traditional English tea room with a glazed Courtyard, Pantry, Study and Garden Terrace. It is child and dog friendly with a welcoming and enthusiastic team, serving something for everyone. There are loose-leaf teas, cafeteria coffees, fresh juices and quality wines. A range of freshly prepared cakes and cream teas are available all day. There is a lovely walk around the outside of the castle where you are surrounded by natural woodland and outstanding views of the castle walls, River Teme and Whitcliffe Common.

A bit of imagination will transport you into the Middle Ages in this fine example of fortification. A brilliant food festival in September each year sees us returning again and again

We visited the castle with our 3yo girl and 1yo golden retriever. Lovely to walk around the grounds (can go anywhere with the two of them) and ended up with a tea and slice of cake in the terrace garden area. Perfect! Highly recommended.

Full of history....the round chapel is the star! The Tudor additions add interest. Take time for contemplation in the setting. All the staff we met were chatty and helpful. Thank you.
