About Philip Hume

Philip and Jenny live in the main house near to The Studio, so are on hand to help with any queries or advice on places to visit. Philip has researched, written and published a book on aspects of the history of the area. We moved to the area at the end of 2014 and are thoroughly enjoying exploring this beautiful and varied place.

Philip Hume purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Philip Hume chose Shropshire

We immediately fell in love with the secluded, peaceful, location of the property surrounded by woodland and birdsong. The countryside is beautiful, with a host of varied walking landscapes, fascinating historic remains and family visitor attractions. It offers the best of both worlds - rural tranquility with quick access to local market towns. Ludlow is a wonderful,lively place where there always seems to be something going on!

What makes this cabin unique

We converted 'The Studio' from a painter's studio (hence the name!) into the holiday cottage as it is now. In doing so, we were seeking to maintain the lovely light that the artist had needed for his work and feel that we have succeeded in doing so. In order to do this, we have placed the bedrooms on the ground floor and the living area upstairs.

Set in woodland close to many walking trails in the heart of Mortimer Country, The Studio gives access to miles of forest and open countryside including the famous Shropshire Hills.

It is only ten minutes from historic Ludlow with its medieval castle, excellent food outlets and many festivals.

Lying in 'the Welsh Marches', the area has numerous castles, churches and historic houses - including two National Trust properties, five castles, and twelve or more historic churches all within 15 minutes drive.

There are many beautiful gardens to be visited and enjoyed.

In addition, the black and white villages of Herefordshire are only a short distance away. The historic city of Hereford lies half an hour away.

Local traditions are strongly maintained in the area with Morris dancing, wassailing and other rural spectacles still to be enjoyed.

Hay on Wye with its literary festival, the glories of Chirk castle, the mountains of central Wales, Worcester and the Malvern Hills, the Seven Valley Railway, the West Midlands Safari Park, the World Heritage Site of Iron Bridge Gorge, historic Shrewsbury are all no more than an hours drive away.

Amazing little gem in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for an amazing stay at your lovely upside down cottage. The peace and quiet and beautiful scenery from every window, leaves you with no choice but to relax and chill out. Sitting out on the deck at night with no light pollution, looking up at a star filled sky was lovely, just listening to the sounds of nature. So close to Ludlow but you feel miles away from anywhere, just what we needed. WE WILL BE BACK!
