    “First off, this is the best self catering property we have ever rented.”

    ....we have rented in towns and countryside, this eclipsed everything. ...

    ....we have rented in towns and countryside, this eclipsed everything. The location is outstanding, the property is well presented, there is nothing from a charity shop here (unlike some we have previously rented) it is roomy, nice furnishings and decor, well equipped, good size garden, off road parking. You control the heating, no restrictions. This property is located high up on Titterstone Clee Hill, a couple of minutes walk and you are at a gate which leads directly onto Clee Hill Common which has many foot paths including the Shropshire way, its steep, but the climb is worth it, at the trig point there are 360 degree views of the neighbouring countryside, stunning! There are ruins of Dhustone mining to explore too. Be aware if you have a dog, its lead walks only as the common is full of sheep. The joy of Hillside Lodge is that you look out onto a huge part of the view from the front windows, the garden and the hot tub. Yon watch the weather changing across the valley below, its mesmerising. The hot tub is in a separate open fronted building overlooking the view, totally private, in the building there is also a dining table and chairs, along with seats to relax in with a log burner and a gas powered griddle to cook on should you so wish. We rented in the first week in May 2021 and enjoyed warm sun, snow, hail, sleet, rain, gale force winds, from the tub! Two of our favourite places are close Ludlow and Bewdley, both worth a visit. Only very minor gripes, one of our dogs got out of the garden somehow and ended up in a sheep field, luckily no damage done and a couple more towels would have been nice, one for the shower, one for the tub. Oh, and on the morning we left, we decided to clean the place pack and clean then have a final dip in the tub, did everything and found the tub emptying to be refilled for the next guests...gutted! Oh well.... We will I’m very sure return, its the only place we have been that we were reluctant to leave. Really, really impressed!

The property

Ludlow 6 miles.

This wooden-clad lodge is set in a secluded location on the edge of the Shropshire Hills in the village of Bedlam, close to the historic town of Ludlow.

Enjoying panoramic views over the Shropshire Hills and towards Worcester, Hillside Lodge is a well-equipped accommodation for families wanting to break away from everyday routines and relax within this idyllic part of the country.

Impressive on the inside and out, internally the lodge has been tastefully renovated with laminate flooring and a number of comfortable furnishings, whilst outside there is a superb outdoor area where you can curl up beside the woodburning stove or enjoy a dip in the hot tub all while admiring those breath-taking views.

The open plan living area is where everyone can gather to prepare a hearty feast from the well-equipped kitchen before enjoying a family film upon the sofa.

Heading to bed you have two beautifully furnished bedrooms to choose from, one of which benefits from patio doors leading to the garden and offering those same views, which would be a real treat to wake up to!

Why not make use of the undercover kitchen area with BBQ and serve a delicious selection of grilled goods?

If you can bear to tear yourself away from this delightful dwelling then a trip to Ludlow is recommended, home to a magnificent 13th century castle, plus a great selection of shops, pubs, restaurants, tea rooms and its famous festivals throughout the year.

Travel further afield to the impressive locations of Hereford and Shrewsbury, places with great history and interest to make your trip just that extra special.

An exceptional holiday lodge to spend with your loved ones.

The historic market town of Ludlow is situated on the River Teme, amidst the outstanding countryside of the Welsh Marches. With more than 500 listed buildings, the town provides a fascinating range of architecture including Ludlow Castle which is over 900 years old and is one of the first stone castles to be built in England. Today the castle is open all year round and hosts a wide range of events including outdoor theatre, food, art and literature festivals and many antique and art fairs. Below the castle, Millenium Green offers a large public riverside green and weir and provides excellent indoor and outdoor dining facilities via the Green Cafe located right on the riverside. Ludlow has held street markets since the twelfth century. Nowadays, a traditional open-air market takes place in the town square every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday throughout the year. More than forty stalls selling a range of goods including fresh produce, cheeses, books and a selection of local crafts are on offer with the 'Local to Ludlow' produce market some Thursdays and an Antique & Flea market some Sundays. Ludlow is also a gourmet’s paradise and a shopper’s dream. The town boasts many places to eat and drink, as well as a number of exclusive boutique style clothes and gift shops. Ludlow is within easy reach of Church Stretton, Shrewsbury and Hereford, as well as popular attractions such as World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge, Severn Valley Railway, Berrington Hall, Croft Castle and Cardingmill Valley. Ludlow is a superb destination for a relaxing all year-round break.
