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 for exclusive use by groups of up to twenty people. Self-catering holiday house.
We have nine large double bedrooms and a single bedroom (actually a 4ft double bed), all with modern en-suite shower rooms, a boot room, a walk-in gun room (for shooting parties if required), laundry room, kitchen, dining room, huge reception room and sitting room, it is ideal for parties throughout the year, with lots of inside and outside space.
Caynham Court, located just 2 miles from Ludlow town centre, was listed in the Domesday Book 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 take a walk over the trout stream and into the old parkland.
Dining is around a huge table, under a lovely old plasterwork ceiling dating from the 1790s.
For catering, we recommend local chefs Harry Bullock or Andy Thomas, who use Shropshire ingredients wherever possible and bring local waiting staff.
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, country living.
The property is popular with families for reunions and parties, birthdays and dinners and relaxing weekends together.
We welcome well-behaved stag and hen parties but if you are planning to turn the volume up to eleven and jump up and down raving until four o' clock in the morning, please look elsewhere.
