About Sutton Court Farm

Situated 15 minutes drive from Ludlow in the Shropshire Hills AONB, our charming holiday cottages are ideally situated for anyone wishing to explore the varied delights of this part of the country. Corvedale, the valley through which the river Corve flows on it’s way to join the Teme at Ludlow, runs north east from Ludlow towards Much Wenlock and Bridgnorth. This beautiful, broad valley is bordered on one side by the famous limestone escarpment of Wenlock Edge side and the dramatic peaks of the Clee hills on the other. This timeless landscape is dotted with small villages little changed over the centuries include numerous historic buildings and cottages, of which the farmhouse of Sutton Court Farm is one. Although no longer a working farm from the windows you can see the farming activity that has been the lifeblood of this area for thousands of years.

Dating back to at least the 16th century, although there was almost certainly a building on this site from Norman times, the house is a classic timbered framed tudor dwelling. Relaxing in the Guests’ garden with a glass of wine is the perfect way to soak up the atmosphere of those vanished times. The cottages are arranged around a courtyard adjoining the house and were converted from the old farm buildings and stables in 1987. We bought them along with the main house in May 2017, and will be undergoing major renovations in the beginning of 2018, re-opening for Easter. Once finished we’re sure you’ll find that the cottages provide a comfortable, stylish and homely base from which to explore Ludlow and the Shropshire Hills AONB. Check our availability here.
