Our Story

Escape to the tranquil setting of The Cliffe at Dinham in Ludlow, alongside the river Teme, with superb views of Ludlow’s historic Castle.

A combination of delicious food, charming rooms and a relaxed atmosphere will make your visit one to remember. The Cliffe at Dinham is the perfect Ludlow hotel for a relaxed lunch, an evening out or a longer stay in what Sir John Betjeman called…”The loveliest town in England”.

The Cliffe was built in the mid 19th Century as a gentlemen’s residence for a local solicitor. It has been a hotel for many years and attracted a loyal clientele. After 12 successful years as Ludlow hoteliers, Paul & Barbara Brooks bought the hotel in April 2014, re-naming it The Cliffe at Dinham, a restaurant with rooms.

A major refurbishment has created two new dining rooms and lounge bar.  The original Victorian features of the building have been sympathetically combined with contemporary decoration.

From The Cliffe at Dinham, you can walk to Ludlow town centre in a few minutes or take a little longer in a riverside stroll through Whitcliffe Common. All around lies the beautiful South Shropshire countryside with wonderful opportunities to explore.

Local Area

This small market town was once described by Sir John Betjeman as 'the most perfect town in England' and it certainly lives up to its reputation. There are nearly 500 listed buildings and the medieval street pattern survives almost intact. The town prospered through wool and cloth manufacturing and Georgian houses line the wide streets and tiny Victorian houses edge the pavements.

The Cliffe at Dinham, restaurant with rooms has been recognised for both our hospitality and culinary expertise.
