Meadow Barn is situated just 5 miles north of the historic town of Ludlow. The castle dominates this medieval market town, often regarded as the finest small town in England. Ludlow cannot fail to impress with its timbered buildings, fine Georgian houses and its famous restaurants. In 2006 Ludlow was voted Britain’s Best Town, beating such picturesque places as Lincoln, York, St Ives and Edinburgh. The castle forms the breathtaking backdrop to Ludlow Festivals flagship outdoor Shakespeare play and the newer Food and Drink Festival, both of which attract visitors from across the world. More info
