About Nicola Firth
We live and work at Hothorpe Hall Conference Centre in Leicestershire and keep the house in Ludlow as a ’bolt hole’. We have owned the property since 2000 and have, over the years, enjoyed renovating the house. It was originally a 17C public house; one of eight in the street!
Nicola Firth purchased this cottage in 2000
Why Nicola Firth chose Ludlow
Ludlow appealed to us, not only as a lively and beautiful town, but because it was central to so much stunning countryside to walk and cycle through. The town was in easy walking distance which was a positive for us living in a very rural location and needing the car even for a newspaper or pint of milk! The town has ‘grown’ with us as family as the children have progressed from enjoying the castle and park to cinema, shops and sports centre and they both regularly return with friends independently of us.
What makes this cottage unique
The street is quiet and within easy walking distance of the town centre and the river. There is a lovely walk alongside the river to the castle called the ‘bread walk’ which passes two of the famous towns weirs. We fell in love with the house when we first looked around; it has a lovely homely feel. The children loved the three storeys, with their own bedrooms on the top floor. We loved viewing the garden from the kitchen and enjoy meals out in the garden. Since owning the house we have worked at restoring some of the historic features- the Shropshire stone wall in the dining room, and old oak beams in the lounge. The street and house have a fascinating history. We love to walk up to town and explore the many shops and the market and also to walk from the house up to Whitcliffe common
