I have ventured into Ludlow and Church Stretton to see what is happening and what is open. I have not been out and about much so some of this is gathered from guest and friends. This is not comprehensive.
So here is an idea of some places I know are open in Shropshire.
Ludlow Market is open with a one way system. The Castle and it’s cafe are open again for business.
Most shops were open except a few charity shops and some businesses which have unfortunately been effected by Covid 19 Lockdown and will not open again. I am very sorry to see some of my favourite shops and cafes closed.
The car parks are busy but not full.
In Church Stretton most places seemed to be open although you may notice some changes when you enter them. There are one way systems hand sanitizer stations and some places have shut off parts that are tricky with social distancing.
Heather Brae to the north of Church Stretton is open for business.
In Craven Arms the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre is open, the cafe has less tables and was running a less diverse menu.
The Land of Lost Content is open with a booking system.
Stokesay Castle is open, I don’t think the cafe is.
Ludlow Food Centre is open, I hear they have a very good system in side. The Plant Centre is also open and the Cafe.
Blists Hill is open, our last guests spent all day there when they ventured there.
In Craven Arms only one of the pubs is open, The Stables, drink only.
The Stokesay Inn has been taken over by local folks but is not yet open.
The Kangaroo at Aston On Clun is open with a booking system.
We hope when your come to Folly View you will find plenty to do
The Apple Tree at Onibury is open as is the Station at Marshbrook.
The take always in Craven Arms are open for business.
Don’t forget Tuffins do a lovely range of ready meals called Cook if you are not inclined to eat out.
