The Crown Country Inn


About Us

Welcome to the Crown Country Inn

near Ludlow, Craven Arms and many other areas in South Shropshire.


The Crown is a Grade II listed

building that has been transformed

into a comfortable Bed and Breakfast, Restaurant and locals Inn with many original features still in place.  Inglenook

fire places, flagstone floors and

carvings in wooden beams set in an

historic atmosphere for you to take

lodgings or dine.


Set in an "area of outstanding natural beauty", located within easy travelling distance of many interesting towns including the small historic town of Much Wenlock (the birthplace of the modern Olympic Games), Craven Arms  (ideally positioned for walking and cycling) and the bustling market towns of Ludlow, Bridgnorth and Shrewsbury.  The modern town of Telford offers good shopping facilities.  The Crown makes a perfect base to stop whilst enjoying sights such as the Ironbridge Gorge, Stokesay Castle, Ludlow Castle or the Severn Valley Railway. If you really want to see the beauty of one of England's undiscovered counties, a walk upon the Wenlock Edge or Long Mynd will astound!


Doggy Guests

We have a lovely boisterous Boxer dog ourselves and we welcome well behaved dogs. Our doggy friends are most welcome in the front courtyard and in the bar area on our paw friendly tables, as long as there are no objections from other diners! Water and doggy treats available with a cosy warm welcome and atmosphere. There are some lovely walks near us including the Three Castles walk just behind the Inn.

Situated between Wenlock Edge and the Clee Hills, in the Vale of the River Corve, the Crown's history dates back into Tudor times when it was formed into one of the Shropshire Hundred Houses.


The Crown was first licensed in 1790 and is still a central meeting point in the Shropshire countryside.  2 AA Rosettes for food, 4 star AA Inn classification, listings in the Good Food Guide  and numerous other awards are a testament to the commitment of the resident owners Richard and Jane, since they took over in 2001.
