Ludlow is a thriving market town and an architectural gem with a lively community feel, busy with events and festivals throughout the year. It has an international reputation for food and drink with many excellent restaurants and cafes, enhanced by the area's abundance of good quality producers. The county town of Shrewsbury lies to the north and Hereford is to the south. Birmingham and the West Midlands are an approximate one hour commute with many convenient rail links. There are excellent state and independent schools in the area including Moor Park, Ludlow and Shrewsbury School. Ludlow Golf Club and Ludlow National Hunt racecourse are within a fifteen minute drive.

Orleton House dates back to the 1600s and is a Grade II Listed, timber framed, six bedroom house. In need of some modernisation the house has been meticulously maintained to keep its original features with all the added luxury of 21st Century living. The ground floor boasts an entrance hall, drawing room, sitting room/ The Den, kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, utility room with back door and downstairs WC. An impressive oak staircase leads to the first floor landing giving access to six bedrooms, office and two bathrooms. All the rooms benefit from beautiful views of either the gardens or the courtyard across the village and surrounding countryside. The well maintained garden, which is principally lawned, is located around the house with an enclosed courtyard to the west, surrounded by a traditional stone wall, accessed through a wooden gate. Beyond the garden is a tennis court. There is ample parking at the front of the property within the courtyard. Various intimate seating areas and a paved terrace to the front of the house complete the gardens making Orleton House a truly charming property. Across the courtyard there is a large traditional outbuilding with various divisions currently used as storage. This could be converted into auxiliary accommodation including a self-contained annexe, holiday cottages or a home office subject to the relevant planning approval.

From Ludlow take the B4361 Richards Castle Road. Carry on into Orleton and turn left opposite the Bakers Arms into the village. At the crossroads, turn left and the property is on the left hand side, just past The Boot Inn.
