Situated at the heart of the ancient market town of Ludlow. Internationally recognised for its Jacobean architecture and medieval heritage. Excellent cuisine.Described by Nikolaus Pevsner in 'The Buildings of England' as 'that prodigy of timber-framed houses' and, more recently, in the New York Times as 'the most handsome inn in the world', The Feathers Hotel is internationally recognised for its beautiful Jacobean architecture and medieval heritage.

Situated at the heart of the ancient market town of Ludlow, there are excellent craft and antique shops and a wealth of historic buildings, all within easy walking distance. Being so central, The Feathers Hotel has been for centuries an important meeting point for the local community and visitors enjoy its lively atmosphere particularly during the annual arts-dedicated Ludlow Festival, which takes place during the last week of June and the first week of July.

Excellence is our goal, and we aim to exceed your expectations with every meal'.

In the afternoon, guests and visitors can relax and enjoy a quintessentially British cream tea, with home-made cakes and scones.
