Shropshire named as one of the top holiday destinations in the world

Shropshire has been named by ABTA (The Travel Association) on their list of top 10 global destinations to watch for holidaymakers in 2024 – The only UK location to be featured!

Described as a ‘rural gem’ in ABTA’s review, Shropshire is home to some wonderful market towns, fascinating historical attractions, including a World Heritage Site, and breath-taking landscapes.

“The county has a number of delightful towns including Ludlow, which is regarded as a foodie paradise with great restaurants, which together with it’s very attractive high street containing many historic buildings, has one of the country’s most impressive castles.”

For Shropshire, being recognized by ABTA as a destination to watch is a fantastic achievement. Ludlow town is renowned for its food excellence and at The Clive Arms we like to think we are helping to uphold this reputation. Our chefs use fresh, local and seasonal ingredients to create food that is traditional with a modern twist. Every dish on our menu is carefully created to give you a dining experience to remember.

We’re a boutique inn located just 5 minutes away from the bustling town of Ludlow and 20 minutes from Church Stretton, making the perfect pitstop on your travels. The Clive Arms offers the perfect base to explore the stunning countryside of South Shropshire and Welsh Marches. There is so much to see and do, with many things right on our doorstep!

Offering luxury accommodation and dining in a relaxed atmosphere is at the heart of what we do. We are so proud of our region and delighted it has been recognised with this accolade.
