Visit the bustling, market town of Ludlow and you’ll find yourself spoilt for choice. Spend the day exploring a variety of independent shops and family businesses, specialising in food, clothing, jewellery and gifts and return to Marrington Escapes’ holiday cottages in Shropshire.

There are plenty of opportunities to take moments of respite for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Each as tempting as the next, there are eateries to suit all tastes and budgets. With five restaurants featured in the Michelin Guide, it’s no wonder Ludlow is often nicknamed the ‘food hub of Shropshire’.


The best way to start your day

From hearty full breakfasts to a simple bacon sandwich or just a creamy latte, Ludlow Kitchen turns the star products from the farm shop and estate into wonderful dishes for you to enjoy.
