Why Move to Ludlow?
What makes the little market town of Ludlow so attractive?
With its historic castle, buzzing market, and popular festivals, Ludlow has been described as “an architectural gem”, whilst the poet Sir John Betjeman described it as “the perfect historic town”. Perched high above the River Teme in the Welsh Marches surrounded by unspoiled south Shropshire countryside, Ludlow boasts a wealth of historic buildings still intact.
Laid out in the medieval street pattern, there are over 500 listed buildings and properties, showcasing Georgian facades. It certainly was a prosperous town inhabited by wealthy merchants of the time. Today, it still is seen as an affluent place to live.
Shopping in Ludlow is a delight with many independent local traders selling a variety of handcrafted local products, it has a reputation for the quality of its food and drink, with many excellent restaurants and cafes. Travel connections are good. By car Shrewsbury (30 miles), Telford also around (30 miles), and Birmingham (41 miles).
The local train station is situated just a short five-minute walk from the town centre and offers regular trains to Shrewsbury, Newport, Cardiff, Birmingham, and Manchester.
It may be a comparatively small town but living in Ludlow you will discover a quality lifestyle, low crime levels, and a pace of life that thankfully hasn’t quite caught up with the rest of the country.
Ludlow Schools & Education
For a town of its size, the education provision in Ludlow is surprisingly good.
Ludlow Primary School and St Laurence CofE Primary School both sit within the town’s catchment area, and both are considered “good” as per Ofsted’s latest inspection reports.
Ludlow has one secondary school, Ludlow Church of England School also rated as “good”. It serves children within the town as well as some from the villages surrounding Ludlow.
For students aged 16 and up, Ludlow College is a sixth form college in the town centre.
Although it forms part of the Herefordshire and Ludlow College, it retains its own identity. An old school, with a history dating back to the reign of King John in the 13th century.
Today it offers a selection of courses alongside a range of apprenticeships and is a popular choice for students who want to stay local.
Higher education in the wider county is offered by the University of Birmingham (39 miles), University of Wolverhampton (33 miles), and Harper Adams University (40 miles).
Things to do in Ludlow
A popular tourist destination, with its many antique shops, independent bookshops, art dealers, local producers, and highly acclaimed pubs and restaurants, Ludlow can get very busy during the warmer months.
The town is nowadays probably best known for its gastronomic prowess and hosts the prestigious annual Ludlow food festival.
Ludlow was once the only town in England with three Michelin-starred restaurants. It still has two.
Ludlow has regular farmers’ markets held in Castle Square alongside a calendar of events throughout the year.
In June the Ludlow Festival over three weeks showcases new and rising talent together with a Shakespeare production held in the beautiful Ludlow Castle grounds.
Popular with visitors and locals is Ludlow Racecourse, which makes for an exciting day out. The B4365 crosses the racecourse at three points of the tracks and traffic is stopped when the course is in use.
With so much stunning countryside on its doorstep, Ludlow offers a range of popular outdoor activities to enjoy such as horse riding, cycling, hiking, and fishing.
Ludlow Castle is well worth a visit. A ruined medieval fortification, although it has been extended over the ages, it was founded by Walter de Lacy after the Norman conquest and was one of the first stone castles to be built in England.
Walking, running, picnicking, it can all be done at Mortimer Forest! Straddling the Shropshire and Herefordshire border this thousand-hectare forest is a perfect place for some breathing space for all the family.
There is so much more to discover in and around Ludlow:
Ludlow offers prospective buyers a competitive market.
Due to both its popularity and the fact that the local council has adopted a tough planning regime that restricts the building of new homes.
According to Zoopla, Ludlow only has 16 properties in its portfolio.
Homes that do become available sell quickly and generally for their asking prices.
Currently, there are no one or two-bedroom homes on the market other than a few retirement properties which are selling from £210,000.
The majority of properties are three-bedroomed or larger. These start from £275,000.
Heritage and tradition are evident everywhere in Ludlow and many properties date back to the Victorian and Georgian eras or even earlier.
For homes which offer plenty of character, head to the heart of the town. Here you can buy a beautiful Grade II listed property with three bedrooms situated in a little alleyway, on the market for offers in the region of £415,000.
With Ludlow, it is not that most can’t afford to live here, it is the lack of available stock which creates the demand.
