Sutton Court Farm is ideally situated 5 miles north of the beautiful
and historic town of Ludlow. You are sure to enjoy exploring one
of the finest small towns in England with its Norman Castle, splendid
Georgian architecture, traditional markets, fine shops and famous
Ludlow races, together with antiques and bric-a-brac markets take
place regularly. The annual Food and Drink Fair, in September and the Ludlow Festival (featuring a Shakespeare play in the breathtaking setting of the
castle), in June/July attract visitors from across the world.
Cycle hire, horse riding, golf, hot air ballooning, fishing and
swimming can be found locally. Britain’s heritage is revived
at the Ironbridge Gorge Museums, Severn Valley Railway and Acton
Scott Victorian Working Farm. Church Stretton, lying within the
folds of the Long Mynd, provides a gateway to the glorious walking
countryside of one of the more popular Shropshire Hills.
Historic ruins and modern crafts can be found side by side in small,
quiet towns such as Much Wenlock and Bishop’s Castle. Romantic,
borderland castles including Ludlow, Stokesay, Clun and Powis lie
within easy reach.
You will want to find time to visit Shrewsbury, with its shutts
and passages, fine castle and Abbey. The market town of Hereford,
a similar distance to the south, offers a superb cathedral, home
to the fascinating 13th century Mappa Mundi.
South Shropshire, with its comfortable towns and villages, is an
idyllic retreat at any time of the year, offering the historic and
unspoilt English countryside at its very best.
