About Abbots Lodge
Our apartment sits below our house, accessed via its own private south-facing terrace.
Guests who have stayed with us since we opened about 8 years ago, comment particularly on the peace and tranquility of our location (on the edge of a village), the birdsong, and the comfortable bed.
Our apartment is spacious and light, with log-burner, sitting/dining area, kitchen and ensuite shower-room. The apartment opens out onto a south-facing terrace. Perfect for couples (or individual visitors), with space to relax and enjoy the peace and views on offer, you will find your kitchen stocked with tea, coffee, milk and cereals when you arrive.
Our accommodation is perfect for couples (or individual visitors), with space to relax and enjoy the peace and views on offer.
In the summer you can push open the French doors, and lay back on the bed to enjoy the sunshine and birdsong.
And in winter, you can light the log-burner and settle in for a cosy evening.
We are lucky to have lots of excellent pubs and restaurants close by, including in our village and within a few miles drive, to satisfy varied tastes and budgets.
We look forward to welcoming you to stay.
Wigmore is approximately 8 miles west of Ludlow, and a similar distance from the market towns of Leominster, Knighton, Kington and Presteigne. An attractive, thriving village, with schools, a church, pubs and a recently opened community shop, it stands out on the map because of its castle (just a few yards walk from Abbots Lodge).
Herefordshire is a beautiful un-spoilt rural county. It is an excellent destination for walking, cycling, mountain biking, bird-watching, exploring historical sites and houses, or simply relaxing. Throughout the area are a wide range of pubs and restaurants of recognized quality and character, and there are numerous opportunities to buy local produce. Just over the border into Shropshire is the beautiful historic town of Ludlow, particularly renowned for its restaurants, and food suppliers.
Further afield Hay-on-Wye is approximately 45 minutes drive to the south west, a delightful town famous for its second hand bookshops, and of course the world renowned Hay Festival. Hereford is 30 minutes drive to the south, a cathedral city (on the river Wye), and Shrewsbury is 45 minutes to the north (on the river Severn).
