Ludlow Farm Shropshire, SY8

about

A beautiful Queen Ann house set in large rambling gardens with old stone paths, rolling lawns, old topiary, wooded area, brook, paddock and tennis court. The house is full of character with original wide oak floor boards and working fire places in the majority of rooms. Natural light floods the house filling the airy, large rooms.

There are eight spacious bedrooms decorated in a mix of distressed antique Swedish and French farmhouse furniture. The majority of bathrooms have original fittings, roll-top baths and working fireplaces.

The house is full of a mixture of quirky vintage and antique objects, vintage industrial objects and distressed antique French and Swedish farm-house furniture.

The garden is approximately five acres and is very beautiful. It is reputed to have been designed by the Edwardian landscape architect Gertrude Jekyll.The many rolling lawns are lined by old topiary. Mature flower beds are well stocked creating plenty of colour and texture.

Secret hidden gardens within the main garden are magical and secluded with beautiful old benches and antique garden ornaments. There is also a large Edwardian green house which is extremely romantic where nature has started to take over the building.

A pretty meandering brook runs through the garden and surrounded by trees and wild flowers. The two old wooden bridges over the brook lead to a wilder part of the garden also full of wild flowers in the spring/summer.

The paddock contains two very pretty, friendly, miniature Shetland ponies. Chickens roam freely around the whole garden. Also within the grounds is a beautiful cottage which is very light and airy with high ceilings, large windows and white painted floor boards.

The property is four miles from Ludlow rail station. The drive from London is around three hours.

Shoot and stay is considered here.
