Feathers Hotel, Ludlow

One of the most famous inns in the country. Famous for the carved woodwork outside and in, this picture-postcard 17th-century hotel is one of the town's best-known landmarks and is in an excellent location. The public areas have retained much of the traditional charm, and the first-floor lounge is particularly stunning. The smart restaurant, which has wooden beams and exposed brickwork, serves excellent food.
