The pretty market town of Ludlow is famous for its annual food festival and 'foodies' will find themselves in heaven with so many fine restaurants & cafes to choose from. Castle explorers are also well catered for as the town originally grew up around the magnificent Ludlow Castle, one of the 'marcher castles' built to control the Welsh borders.

Stokesay is a fortified manor house, dating back to the 1280's, and has been pretty much untouched by time. Apart from the addition of a gatehouse in the 1700's, the castle buildings are as they were in the time of the builder, Laurence of Ludlow.
