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.

Fabulous location but property needs updating.

  • 3 of 5

The property is in a lovely location with trees birds and decent views.

The property itself needs updating . The main bathroom shower not good but ok couldnt shut the door!The outside full of weeds which I had to remove!! The decking was a bit mucky with cobwebs leaves. The door leading to decking very stiff.

Owners lovely and enjoyed watching the sheep and ducks

Nice touch with cake bread on arrival plenty of tea coffee

Sounds like I'm being picky but have stayed in many cottages and this one wasn't as nicely finished but we really did enjoy our stay!!

peaceful, beautiful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time on our holiday. The studio was very comfortable and well equipped. The gardens were so lovely to wander around. There were no sirens or traffic noise just birdsong. Jenny and Philip were on hand but also left us to our own devices which was what we wanted.

We will definitely go back to the Studio, it was perfect.

Home from home near Ludlow

  • 5 of 5

We have just been fortunate to discover and stay in this beautiful studio near Ludlow. To say it is beautiful is an understatement. Set in lovely gardens with a completely enclosed decking it was perfect for us with our little dog. The studio is equipped with everything you need for a relaxing break, it was spotlessly clean and completely dog (and child if we had had one) friendly. Philip and Jenny were so helpful and friendly, advising us about opportunities to walk around the area and providing some lovely local food including a fresh baked loaf! Ludlow as a town is a revelation- olde worldy, lovely shops, market and riverside pubs.

We cannot recommend this place enough and we will definitely be returning.

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.
