Opportunities to own a dream holiday home on the edge of the thriving medieval market town of Ludlow are few and far between.
Properties are in hot demand in the pretty South Shropshire town, which is regularly named in the list of best places to live in the UK.
Now Shropshire-based Morris Leisure is in a position to make dreams come true. The company has 15 pitches available on its new Ludlow Holiday Home Park, which nestles between the River Teme and the town centre.
Five pitches have already been sold on the first phase of the park, which is situated alongside the A49 near Richards Castle, just a five-minute drive or a bus ride from the town centre
The park has been developed alongside Morris Leisure's successful Ludlow Touring Park and the available pitches are well spaced to offer privacy. Holiday home hunters will discover that the park is located perfectly to explore Ludlow and the beautiful South Shropshire countryside.
One of Ludlow's greatest attractions is its location, within an hour's drive of Birmingham and the West Midlands.
The historic town centre and the 11th century Ludlow Castle are situated on a cliff overlooking the River Teme. Renowned as the gastronomic capital of England, the town had poet John Betjeman waxing lyrical about "the loveliest town in England".
With its buzzing market and popular food and arts festivals throughout the year, Ludlow is an architectural gem and an excellent base for walking and cycling, with the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty nearby.
Ludlow richly deserves its reputation for quality, artisan food and drink, with many excellent restaurants and cafes serviced by local producers. This is showcased every September when Ludlow Food and Drink Festival attracts food lovers from far and wide.
Walkers can explore the South Shropshire Hills of Longmynd, Caer Caradoc, the Stiperstones and Wenlock Edge, while to the west awaits the unspoilt countryside, towns and village of Mid Wales.
Morris Leisure's managing director Edward Goddard said: "Ludlow is a very special place to live and visit. We are delighted to have been able to develop a caravan holiday home park alongside our successful touring park to bring even more sustainable tourism to the town.
"People who love visiting the area now have an opportunity to own an affordable holiday home in Ludlow and we hope many of the touring caravan and motorhome owners who regularly stay on our touring park will be encouraged to invest.
"We have holiday homes available from £30,000 to £75,000 and finance packages can be arranged for people who wish to exchange their touring caravan or motorhome."
