We loved this beautifully positioned perfect cottage.  The garden was a delight!  We didn't travel far, just thoroughly enjoyed three days in Ludlow.  Thank you Rosemary.

19 - 23 May, Jane and Mike, Warwickshire

We came for the weekend of English Song plus a couple of days, - all wonderful but made more so by such a warm welcome in this darling cottage. Such a well set up cottage. I have never stayed in one where there are enough dumping spaces in the bathroom, hooks on the backs of doors, and even a tea cosy!  Thank you Rosemary for all the thought that makes this a gem of a cottage.  The vases of flowers are delightful.

15 - 19 May, Maria and Martin, Warrington

Really enjoyed our stay here. Cottage cosy and welcoming; Ludlow is fabulous. Our first but not our last visit.  Thank you Rosemary for lots of extras.

26 April - 4 May, Gordon and Jackie Smith

12 - 17 August, John and Susan, London

Thank you for a truly wonderful stay.  The cottage is charming, especially the courtyard garden.  We make great use of the lounger - looking up at the stars one night - it made my husband very happy.  Thanks for all the goodies, it's great not to have to bring half your house away with you, it's a home from home.  We will be back!

9 - 11 August, Jane and Paul, London

Great to be back here.  As always, comfortable and lovely cake.  Thanks for the wi-fi, very good to have.  Many thanks, we will be back.

7 - 9 August, Francesca, Birmingham

Perfect position and the welcome pack kept me going for my stay.  A beautiful cottage that feels homely, everything within walking distance, I had a quick swim in the river!  Feeling refreshed, wish I could stay longer, would strongly recommend!

28 July - 4 August, Linda and Huw, North London

Dear Rosemary, cakes, bread, eggs, raspberries and even the joy of David Austin roses in the garden.  What lovely treats awaited our arrival.  The cottage was just perfect with such thoughtful touches.  Probably the cleanest and best we have stayed in as a holdiay cottage with a high standard of decoration and 'useable' kitchen crockery and equipment.  So well placed for Ludlow and surrounding area.  Special find - Stockton Bury Gardens, Kimbolton near Leominster.

20 - 27 July, Barbara and Taco, The Netherlands

We really enjoyed our stay in Ludlow!  A lively picturesque town, beautiful weather and a lovely cottage.  We never stayed in such a well equipped holiday home.  We appreciated the welcome treats, thank you.  What a wonderful week we had!

Our second stay at this lovely little cottage, and this time in glorious sunshine.  What a lovely week, we have really enjoyed relaxing in the beautful garden when we returned from out walks, castle visits, etc. Ate breakfast in the garden every morning, and would have been quite happy to remain there all day!  Such a peaceful place, it's hard to remember that it's in the middle of a bustling town!

6th July, Diane and Mike Cox, Penzance

We have had a wonderful week - thank you so much!  Really cosy cottage - loved it!  We look forward to another stay.

22/23 June, Karl and Chrissy, Stockport

We had a fantastic time in Ludlow.  The cottage is perfect and we have already recommended it to a couple of people.  La Becasse was wonderful and The Green Cafe is superb! We will be back!

15 - 22 June, June and Roger, Hemel Hemstead

Thank you for a most enjoyable stay.  We were really comfortable and there was everything we could need.  We particularly liked the well stocked kitchen.  The Welcome Pack was splendid.  The cake was delicious and we were still using some of the goodies days later.  We adored the garden and we really enjoyed having quite a few meals out there.  All best wishes.

8 - 15 June, James and Sandra, Lincolnshire

Superb location to all the towns amenities.  Cleanliness and attention to detail have been carefully thought through.  Lovely private courtyard garden.  Ludlow and surrounding area lived up to our expectations and more.   So hopefully won't be too long before we are back.

6 - 8 June, David and  Sharon, Edwalton, Nottingham

Once again we have really enjoyed a lovely break here at no 19.  As ever the welcome goodies went down very well and of course the cottage is as homely and comfortable as it was the first time we crossed the threshold 3 years ago.  Again a real delight and I don't doubt that we will be back.

6 June 2013, Clare, Cardiff

Lovely cottage and the cake and fresh eggs were a wonderful bonus.  Look forward to booking again.

We have enjoyed our second visit here.  Lovely to come and go as we please. Never slept so well!  We have done lots of walking despite the weather.  This house draws one back to it and so you haven't seen the last of us.  Thank you Rosemary for all the lovely little touches and Welcome Pack.

7 - 11 May 2013, Dot and John, Wirrall

A lovely stay in Ludlow made nicer by our stay at No. 19.  Thank you Rosemary for the thoughtful goodies left for us.  Cottage is cosy and welcoming. Our first stay in Ludlow but hopefully not our last.

26 April - 3 May, James and Wanda, North Berwick

Our first visit to these parts - and greatly impressed. No 19 offers superbly equipped and comfortable accommodation along with the ideal location - central yet quiet - from which to explore Ludlow.  One "must see" attraction ( one of many in Ludlow!) has to be Stokesay Castle, Craven Arms - remarkable!

21 - 26 April, Mandy and David, Herne Bay, Kent

This was our second visit to this fabulous little cottage.  It was just as lovely as we remembered it.  The little touches of cakes, eggs, milk, etc are so thoughtful.  Sad to be going home so soon but we are certain that we shall be coming back again, as soon as we can, thank you Rosemary.

19 - 21 April, Mike, Kelly and Flynn, Widnes

What an absolutely perfect place to stay.  The cottage is beautiful and has everything you could ever need.  Added to the fact that Rosemary has been the friendliest and nicest person to speak with and you have the perfect holiday. (and cakes :))

Ludlow itself is lovely and we had a great time exploring. Shropshire is such a fantastic county which must be one of England's best kept secrets!

12 - 16th April, Jenny and Deborah, Kings Heath, Birmingham

Our third stay at 19 Upper Linney and just as lovely as ever.  Rosemary - don't change anything - it's perfect!  The cottage is cosy and comfortable to return to after our (soggy) walks.  The best place to stay in Ludlow and we will be back.

1 - 6 April 2013, Susan and Rob Keene, The Netherlands,

We have had a wonderful stay, exploring a part of England new to us.  The walks were magnificient.  The cottage has been so cosy and comfortable.  We really appreciate the attention to detail and the welcoming goodies!  Thank you again Rosemary - a perfect week.

25 - 28 March 2013, Matt and Kitty, Teddington, London

Thank you so much for a perfect break! (and the delicious cupcakes!)  We've had some beautiful walks in the snow with the luxury of this cosy cottage to return to at the end of the day.  We will be back!

22 - 25 March 2013, Donna and Alan, Liverpool

Our second visit to Ludlow and the first one in this lovely cottage - didn't do much walking due to the weather but enjoyed the local pubs!

11 - 14 March 2013, Sue and Neil, Tamworth

Arrived at the end of the coldest snap this year but we were snug and warm in your beautiful cottage.  Sitting up in bed looking out over the countryside was just bliss.  Thank you for your attention to every detail.  We hope to return to warmer weather so that we can enjoy the garden, not just from the kitchen window!!

2 - 5 March 2013, Bob and Margaret, Chertsey, Surrey

Very enjoyable stay in the cottage.  Thank you for the Welcome Pack.

15th - 18th February 2013, Andi and Steve, Cornwall

Our second visit to our 'home from home'. As welcoming as the first time. We love Ludlow!  Really don't want to leave, but reality beckons. We will return!

23 Feb - 2 March 2013, Kari and Kyrre Edvardson, Bodo, Norway

Now thinking back of our week in no. 19, we had a wonderful time, the house is so lovely, it has a wonderful atmosphere and we were made to feel very welcome. We have stayed in some cottages over the years and they have been nice and pretty and beautiful, lots of positive things to say. But what makes no. 19 something more than this is the way we felt welcomed. Usually there are 2 bags if tea, two spoonfuls of coffee, one roll of toilet paper, no soap and empty cupboards except maybe some salt and pepper. So the big and small finishing touches you do, make a lot of difference to us as guests, in my opinion.

So thank you Rosemary, for our stay in no. 19 Upper Linney. And it was very nice talking to you and Roger when we met, we really appreciated that.


(17)18 - 21 January 2013, Sam and Steve, Liverpool

A very snowy visit to Ludlow!  thank you Rosemary for your hospitality and for making sure our weekend away happened!  Your cottage was fabulous - loved the decor, home from home comforts and of course the treats.

28 December - 1 January 2013, Josephine, Australia

... No 19 is a great location for a very restful break, with a wealth of local information and creature comforts.  Thank you for your many kindnesses Rosemary, Happy New Year!

The cottage was a very cosy and welcoming place to return to each day.  It had everything we needed and many more extras.  Thank you very much for the welcome pack - great jam.  We would certainly love to return very soon.

12 - 19 October 2012, Kitty and Mike, Cornwall

A really lovely week in Ludlow made especially delightful by our stay at No 19 and all Rosemary's special care and attention, not to mention the delightful chocolate buns on our arrival.  Will be back to explore all the places we haven't yet managed to see on this visit , we feel very rested after a very busy week! Thank you.

5 - 12 October 2012, Sharon and Tony, Wirral

Another lovely stay at 19 upper Linney.  We really appreciate the extra 'treats' that Rosemary provides for her guests.  We look forward to returning in 2013.

1 - 5 October 2012, Eileen and Philip, Buxton

Our second stay at 19 Upper Linney and as enjoyable as last time.  Excellent accommodation in an ideal location.  The homemade treats and Welcome Pack are your unique personal touch.  Thank you Rosemary.

The lovely 'Linney' and Ludlow will linger long - Margaret, N Wales, 1 October 2012

25 August - 5 September 2012, Ivan and Judy, Melbourne, Australia

This is the 6th cottage since arriving in UK early June and best yet.  Couldn't really ask for more and Rosemary has been great to communicate with since booking here back in 2011.  Ludlow has everything required and surrounding countryside is beautiful.  Would recommend 19 Upper Linney to anyone.

18 - 25 August 2012, Ginny and Richard, York

Delightful little house with everything provided, including goodies when we arrived.  Lots to experience yet, we will come again!

13 - 17th August 2012, Matthew and Anna-Maria, Maidstone, Kent

Such a lovely homely cottage.  It had everything needed and the gift basket was very well received and enjoyed.  Ludlow exceeded my expectations.  The town is wonderful and the people very warm and friendly.  Thank you.

Rosemary, thank you very much for your lovely house and hospitality.  Our time here has passed so quickly, but we will be back!  A great break after running around to Olympic events and plenty of good food and drink.

Our third stay at Number 19 Upper Linney was perfect again.  Never tire of the views and the town.  Thanks again, we will be back to feed the ducks again soon!

24 - 28 July 2012, Alan and Wendy, Cambridge

A superbly relaxing stay in your lovely cottage, great to be within easy walking distance of the town centre and the market.  ...  Just walking around Ludlow itself is fascinating.  We will surely be back to this 'home from home'.

15 - 22 July 2012, Ruth and Brian, Leicester

This is our third visit to the cottage and once again we have had a very enjoyable time.  It is so comfortable here, especially the bed!  Do take a ride over Clee Hill if you did not come that way.

7 - 14 July 2012, David and Mandy, Herne Bay, Kent

As soon as we walked in the front door we got 'that' feeling - a real home from home.  Bright, clean and with everything you could possibly need for a week away.   Thank you Rosemary for letting us stay in your absolute treasure of a cottage - we shall definitely be back.

Yet more praise to heap on this wonderful cottage! and its very kind and thoughtful owner.  We have never had so many thoughtful additions to a holiday home. Cosy comfort, proximity to wonder pubs and a stunning little town have made this a perfect break away from all the stresses of everyday life.  I want to move in!  and if you will have us we will be back.  Many many thanks.   PS. Shropshire really is a secret gem!
