"Wonderful weekend. Great hotel with fantastic food."
We were in Ludlow for the food festival. By sheer good luck my husband found Old Downton Lodge on the Internet and booked a two night stay. The rural setting was beautiful. The room and facilities were great. All the staff were friendly and attentive. However the real high point of our stay was the food. There is an amazing chef whose food is stunning. We had one of the taster menus and every course was absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend Old Downton Lodge and hope to return soon. Read less

"A second stay, even better than the first"
We were very well looked after. Our host made sure that we would be properly fed, even though the Ludlow Food Festival visitors were filling up all the restaurants round and about. Even on Sunday, when the hotel restaurant closes, there was a plate of cold food available.

The Tesla charger was a bonus. Read less

Having won countless plaudits for their award winning hospitality business, Willem and Pippa, saw the potential to create a unique venue that defies any attempt to categorise it.They have created somewhere that is fascinating, intriguing and mesmeric.

Old Downton Lodge is not a hotel, nor is it really a bed and breakfast or a restaurant with rooms. The bedrooms are unforgettable; Quirky, luxurious, packed with history and designed to make you smile. The hospitality is relaxed and genuine. The food is exceptional and the wine list inspired.

Parts of Old Downton are so ancient that history merges with legend: its renovation so sympathetic and creative that you may confuse fact with fiction. The sitting room is redolent of its previous incarnation – there is no hiding the fact that this was once an impressive stable. Mighty timbers that once fronted stalls now provide seating from which to watch the roaring log burner, socialise and enjoy a drink from the bar – or in summer to contemplate the spectacular sunsets over the Shropshire hills.

Fashioned out of ancient stables and barns, you certainly won’t encounter uniformity here: A mixture of exposed beams, high ceilings, alcoves, malt shoots and hidey holes have all been incorporated in varying combinations in one room or another. The dining room is in its pomp when set out for a party of twelve or eighteen, but it is equally atmospheric when laid out with table of two or four. It has the feel of a grand medieval hall.

Although modern roads will lead you to its doorstep, Old Downton Lodge is well off the beaten track – and far away from light pollution.
