EXPLORING LUDLOW & THE MARCHES

Many of our guests come to stay at Redford Farm Barns to escape for a few days and truly relax and indulge in good company, good food and good drink. However, if you did have the need to venture out then there are many lovely things to do and amazing places to visit. We are nestled in the South Shropshire hills on the borders of Herefordshire and Worcestershire so you have easy access to best of 3 counties to explore. We have a more detailed guide in our barns to all the local suppliers but here's a taster to get you excited! 

FOOD, DRINK, & INTERIORS


SCENIC WALKS, CYCLING TRAILS, & HISTORIC SITES

We have beautiful rural walks on our doorstep taking in local wildlife, handsome oak trees and amusing livestock. Our landscapes change through the seasons, from frosty lanes in winter, to buttercup fields in May, to golden hay bales in the summer to abundant hedgerow harvesting opportunities in Autumn. Not to mention our endless supply of apples to make home-made apple juice. Ask and we can lend you our press for the weekend. 

We have maps in the barns of our local walks but if you fancy a trip out, here are a few of our favourite spots ...
