Award-winning Self-Catering Holiday Cottages on the English-Welsh Border near Ludlow.

Five comfortable and well-equipped self-catering cottages (sleeping from 2 - 6) set in glorious countryside on the Shropshire / Herefordshire border just seven miles from historic Ludlow. There are country walks from the door in all directions and we are pleased to welcome pets and children.

Mocktree Barns were once a set of farm buildings, but have been converted to provide five distinctive and individually furnished cottages situated around a south-facing courtyard. We live in the adjacent house, once the threshing barn.

We are actively involved in promoting green tourism and we garden organically. Guests are welcome to enjoy our wildlife friendly gardens and the courtyard has tables and chairs for eating outdoors in the summer.

Two of the cottages (Kit and Weavers) are suitable for less mobile guests and have been awarded Level 1 in the National Accessible Scheme.

Kibble Mill Cottage is rather special and is furnished with 'a hint of yesteryear'. It is part of the South Shropshire Vintage Trail.

Mocktree Holiday Cottages have been aware of environmental concerns for a very long time and have always tried to run our business in an environmentally friendly way.

We aim to reduce the amount of resources that we use, particularly energy and water, and to reuse things, either within the business or by handing them on.

We have installed 17 solar panels along the roofs of Kit & Weavers Cottages and are very happy to discuss the practical aspects of these with guests.

With a little care we recycle a lot of our waste and ask our guests to help us with this. All our gardening is done organically and this lets wildlife flourish at Mocktree Barns.

We have a variety of herbs around the courtyard - you are welcome to use them in your cooking.

We encourage our guests to support other local businesses. Our hospitality trays include Fairtrade products and we encourage guests to support other local Fairtrade businesses - www.tigerlilyshop.co.uk.

Mocktree Holiday Cottages offer an organic box delivery service and can also arrange for a generous breakfast basket of locally-sourced produce to be waiting for you in your cottage. Please ask for details when booking.

We are pleased to offer 10% off our tariff for guests arriving by public transport. We are just 7 miles away from Ludlow mainline station and have a country bus service passing our gate. We can arrange cycle hire, a reliable local taxi service, drop off / pick up for walks and delivery of groceries.

We were delighted to be given the Gold Award for Sustainable Tourism in the 2007 Regional Tourism awards. Since then we have achieved a Gold award under the Green Tourism Business Scheme www.green-business.co.uk and have joined the Shropshire Hills Buy Local, Be Sustainable initiative. www.shropshirehills-buylocal.co.uk. In 2011 we were very pleased to be the winners of the "Stay Local" Achiever Award in this excellent local green scheme.
