Old Downtown Lodge

Set in an 18th-century farmhouse with views across the Shropshire countryside, Old Downton Lodge is just 15 minutes’ drive from Ludlow’s historic town centre and castle. With a beautiful flower-filled courtyard, this guest accommodation offers rooms with wooden beams and flagstone floors.

Although modern roads will lead you to its doorstep, Old Downton Lodge is well off the beaten track – and far away from light pollution: This is the place to see velvety night skies sprinkled with a myriad of stars.

Walk through its cartway and enter Old Downton’s secret world. Even the grounds seem timeless – there’s the remains of an ancient Motte and the cottage garden just invites you to take a seat, relax and enjoy a glass of wine.

Full English breakfasts and evening meals are served in the grand and elegantly furnished dining room, which features bare stone walls and a high ceiling. Open to both residents and locals, the restaurant offers a Market Menu, 6 or 9 Course Tasting Menu. Booking Only. Special dietary requirements can be catered to with prior request.
