Ludlow town landmark on the market

A slice of Ludlow’s heritage is on the market. Castle Lodge, is a magnificent Grade II* listed medieval town house of long standing historical significance and once home to Catherine of Aragon.

Standing in the prime location of Ludlow’s Castle Square, this Elizabethan timber framed town house provides four large reception rooms, plus kitchen dining room and twelve bedrooms; there is also significant attic space on the third floor.

Agent Scott Kemsley, of Balfours says: “This is a very rare opportunity to own and enjoy a piece of Ludlow’s heritage and town landmark, with the prospect for commercial or residential use, from restaurant to boutique guest house or family home, subject to planning consent.”

Used as a film set in the 1960s as the backdrop to the film version of Moll Flanders, Castle Lodge  boasts a Chapel, Great Hall, Court room and drawing room among its reception rooms: Rooms which  live up to expectations with exquisitely carved timber panelling, reputedly originating from Nonsuch Palace.

Castle Lodge has some of the largest collection of oak panelling in England and dates from the early 13th century, rebuilt in 1580. In Tudor times it was the home of Elizabeth I's Master of Requests and was once used as a prison. The principle rooms are each steeped in history, with oak board flooring and original fireplaces.

Probably Castle Lodge, along with Ludlow Castle is most famous for being the residence of Catherine of Aragon, whilst she was married to Prince Arthur. She later went on to marry Henry VIII, Arthur's younger brother after his death from tuberculosis.

Castle Lodge has been privately owned throughout its history and was a hotel up until the Second World War. Scott adds: “Ludlow is not only a lively and diverse market town, but is renowned as a fabulous and growing centre of tourism. Castle Lodge has unmeasured potential to tap into tourism and fine dining. Castle Lodge is marketed by Balfours with a guide price of £900,000.
