Catered dog friendly country house sleeping 20 for family get togethers, special occasions and house parties near Ludlow

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Caynham Court, Ludlow, Shropshire, sleeps 8-20 in 10 bedrooms.

Caynham Court is a grand building but it has a relaxed atmosphere and feels very much like a family home. Available on an exclusive use basis only, with a minimum number of 8 guests, and with full catering (ranging from homely to top-end restaurant fare) provided for our guests.

With 10 bedrooms, all with modern en suite shower rooms, a boot room, a walk-in gun room, laundry room, kitchen, dining room, huge reception room and sitting room, it is ideal for accommodating shoot parties during the season or other parties throughout the year.

Caynham Court, located just 2 miles from Ludlow town centre, was listed in the Domesday Book as owned by Ralph de Mortimer in 1086. It has been re-modelled many times since but has sat at the heart of Shropshire society for 900 years. The building today is predominantly Georgian brick, following a re-modelling in the 1790s, but it overlays a much older stone structure.

Accommodation is informal. The house is big, with large rooms and modern en suite facilities attached to all bedrooms, but it is not fussy. Downstairs, the wooden floors and rugs are dog and welly-boot friendly. Efficiently warmed by oil-fired central heating and large wood burners, guests can join the party in the main reception room, retire to read a book or watch the rugby in the snug, or take a walk over the trout stream and into the old parkland with a cigar.

We have a boot room, a laundry and a walk-in gun room, as well as a workshop and ample parking. Dining is around a huge table seating 20 with ease, under a lovely old plasterwork ceiling dating from the 1790s.

Meals are cooked by our resident chef using prime, Shropshire ingredients wherever possible and served by local waiting staff. Your hosts, Diggory and Claire, are on hand to ensure your comfort.

Your party has exclusive use of the house and facilities while resident. We expect you to treat the place as if you lived here. No fuss, no pretence, just proper, informal, well-catered, country living.

Self-catering is available outside the shooting season, for parties, with use of ten bedrooms.
