A wonderful property full of history. You enter by pressing a doorbell and paying the owner £3 in person. He is an elderly and fascinating man who now lives in the property alone. The house is creaky, ancient and extremely creepy. The rooms are largely unfurnished and there is no theming, displays or anything else you would expect from such... More

Do spend an hour in this extremely interesting historic building. The National Trust it is not - just what you see is what you get. You are welcomed by the owner who collects your £3 admittance and lets you wander at will. There are no dressed rooms or artefacts displayed (a few pictures, some slightly bizarre leather settees and a... More

This wonderful house is just across from the castle and we were let in by the elderly owner who just let us wander around on our own.The three main down stairs rooms are the main attractions and give a good idea how the house would have looked in its hay day.there are ten other rooms open up stairs but most...

This stunning house is a national treasure. The elderly owner is charming but a little eccentric. He will tell you about the house but really this building should be under the care of The National Trust or similar organisation. The Tudor ceilings are beautiful. Don't miss this house.

We went to the Christmas Fayre 26th November as a coach day trip, then we wished we were there for the weekend. We were there for five hours, could have done with longer.....my husband says it is because I talk too much too much to every one. The Christmas Fayre was held within the castle grounds and does cost to... More

We went to Ludlow to visit the castle but found that it was only open at the weekends in Winter. As this was Tuesday, we turned our attention to Castle Lodge next door. There was a board outside telling us to visit an original tudor house...so we did. We rang the bell and a very old gentleman opened the door.... More

After reading reviews and speaking to our landlady we expected a strange eccentric man to let us in, take the money and disappear, but we must have caught him on a good day. He mentioned how cold it was and he had put the heater on to give the place a chance and I guess he sits in the lower... More

On a dark, cold new years eve we were taken to Castle Lodge by friends. Welcomed in by Bill Pearson the owner we paid our £3 and were left to look around all the floors alone. It is certainly an unforgettable place, fantastic fireplaces, incredible wood panelling, fabulous moulded and painted plaster ceilings and a glorious window with stained glass... More

This building is a "hidden" gem in Ludlow and for that matter in England. I find it surreal that people only pay £3 to get in...£3 is the price of a forgettable coffee these days from some multinational...and then complain about the place. Talk about the dumbed down generation that has to be "entertained" every conceivable minute of the day!... More
