The Old Bull Pen


Approached by a gravel driveway, the cottage has a sun-trap courtyard with a large patio and shrub beds on the south side.  A second patio and lawn at the rear, which catches the evening sun, overlooks the stream and dingle, replanted 2011/2012.

Accomodation:-  Wifi internet access
The whole cottage is at ground level and so there are no stairs.  It has three bedrooms, all en-suite: the master bedroom has a king-size bed with superior en suite featuring a spa bath with shower over, a toilet and vanity basin.


The large lounge with 49” TV  has a woodburning stove and external french doors to the front and rear.  Internal french doors lead to the kitchen/diner with a separate utility leading to the rear patio.  Off the hall is a guest cloakroom with toilet and washbasin.  All furniture is oak.


View across the courtyard towards the driveway


Bedroom 2, pictured above, has a double bed with en suite shower, toilet and washbasin.  Bedroom 3 has twin beds, en suite same as bedroom 2.  All bedrooms have flatscreen TVs.

Catherine, Graham, Ann & John, Manchester. 

We all came on my mum’s recommendation and it did not fail to deliver us a restful week’s break.  Beautiful area and good food  everywhere we want.  Accommodation is superb and beds very comfy.  Loved Ludlow and its castle, plus Hampton Court Gardens were lovely.  Don’t  want to go home!!
Nicky & Darren plus returnee ‘mum’ Beryl, Suffolk.

Beautiful spot.  Everything we could have wished for and more.
Bob & Wendy, Stroud.

We had a wonderful time.  Tom (aged 3) loved making daily tours of  the Dingle and we enjoyed the sheep spotting.  Old Bull Pen has been a  real treat and a wonderful location for days out.  Very luxurious and  welcoming (so say we all).
Lowe Family, Reading & Brighton.

Yet another wonderful stay in the Bull Pen.  Thoroughly  enjoyed our stay and looking forward to coming back in 2020.  Thanks  Norman & Lynda for being so welcoming.
