The Old Bull Pen


Approached by a gravel driveway, the cottage has a sun-trap courtyard with a large patio and shrub beds on the south side.  A second patio and lawn at the rear, which catches the evening sun, overlooks the stream and dingle, replanted 2011/2012.

Accomodation:-  Wifi internet access
The whole cottage is at ground level and so there are no stairs.  It has three bedrooms, all en-suite: the master bedroom has a king-size bed with superior en suite featuring a spa bath with shower over, a toilet and vanity basin.


The large lounge with 49” TV  has a woodburning stove and external french doors to the front and rear.  Internal french doors lead to the kitchen/diner with a separate utility leading to the rear patio.  Off the hall is a guest cloakroom with toilet and washbasin.  All furniture is oak.

Larry & Nora, Corby.  July 2017.

A very warm welcome, the hamper was an excellent touch, esp. the home made cake.  Rooms are clean and beautifully appointed, beds are extremely comfortable after a day walking in the Shropshire/Herefordshire countryside.  The good selection of board games in the lounge kept us all entertained.  Kitchen very well equipped.

We all came on my mum’s recommendation and it did not fail to deliver us a restful week’s break.  Beautiful area and good food everywhere we want.  Accommodation is superb and beds very comfy.  Loved Ludlow and its castle, plus Hampton Court Gardens were lovely.  Don’t want to go home!!
