Castle House History & Facilities

Luxury Castle Holidays

Castle House, situated in the private grounds of Ludlow Castle, was fully restored and renovated over 3 years and completed in Spring 2007 to the highest specification, in a building described by historian David Lloyd M.B.E, as “the last grand mansion built in Ludlow”.

Castle House Self Catering Holiday Apartments

The renovation of Castle House was undertaken by The Right Honourable The Earl of Powis and the Trustees of Powis Estate. The holiday apartments are furnished and decorated to the highest specification while retaining all the individual character and architectural features discovered during the three years of renovation work. An in-house team of skilled and dedicated craftsmen completed the task under the direction of the Agent and Architects Garner Southall Partnership. The accommodation comprises 3 self catering apartments – “The Prince Arthur & Catherine of Aragon”, “The Sir Henry Sidney” and“The Comus”.
