  • "If you're after remote, this is remote!"

    Sainsbury's 10 mins drive. The facilities are excellent, the lodge is gorgeous, the hot tub was incredibly clean and we spent a lot of time in there during our stay. Loved the undercover leisure area, used the barbecue griddle, the freezer and wine fridge in this area. Lovely to be able to dine looking out over the superb view. If you have a very small dog (smaller than our Mini Schnauzers) the garden might not be totally secure if your dog is determined; we bought a screw in stake/tether so our two could roam on long lines without us worrying. We did check the boundaries but were not 100% comfortable to let them roam at their will.

  • "The lodge was beautiful inside and out."

    The views down the valley were breathtaking and it is located in a beautiful mountain setting. The hot tub was great and the BBQ area was a great asset and we had a lovely evening relaxing, eating and drinking. Will definitely be booking for a repeat visit and Maria was really lovely and kind. The beds were also amazing and we truly had a fabulous stay. Thank you.

  • "We had a fantastic bank holiday stay at Hilltop Lodge."

    The lodge is beautifully presented and well equipped- Marie, the owner, couldn’t do enough for us when we asked about where we could source wood for the outdoor wood burner. The dogs had an amazing time with plenty of freedom to explore, and the covered hot tub meant it was very well used! We loved it so much we are booking to return next year.

  • "We spent a fantastic week at Hillside Lodge."

    The views from the property are really lovely, especially from the master bedroom or from the hot tub which we enjoyed everyday. Inside is fitted out to a high standard. It is only 10-15 mins drive from Ludlow which is a beautiful place to visit. Croft castle is also worth visiting as well as Stokesay castle. Would recommend the Riverside inn at Aymestrey, the Lion inn at Leintwardine and the Blue Boar at ludlow for great pubs to eat out at. Good communication with Marie on the day and when we left. Would return again in the future when visiting this area.

    The property,the views, the host and everything about this place was perfect. We enjoyed a lovely welcome cake n u⁸and a visit from Marie the host, to make sure we had all that we needed. Our two lively Springers had a ball,with stunning views from our afternoon walks up the hill. A total relax,topped off by the beautiful hottub,which was perfectly tended to. Thankyou so much Marie,we will certainly be back and have already recommended to our friends.

    The hot tub was in constant use and was always well monitored by the owners for water quality. There are no shops in walking distance so bring all your food and drink with you unless you want to have a car trip out. We knew this and loved the remoteness and quietness, it felt very private as if it was only us there (and the sheep!).

  • "The location of this lodge is great."

    Excellent walks minutes from the door over the moors, the feeling of isolation but still accessible (via car) to local places. We had a lovely stay here and saw all weathers (it snowed! Which actually made it lovely). The hot tub is done well with the outside space and I imagine in summer is lovely. There are a couple of things that slightly detracted, and in the aim of providing a well rounded reviews, I’ve noted these below as some are easy fixes. It was an enjoyable stay overall. - the pillows on both beds were really hard and uncomfortable. I actually bought a pillow after the first night from a local supermarket to use. The beds however and sheets were comfortable. - there is no front door mat which for a dog friendly place wasn’t ideal in bad weather. We used one of our own towels, but this is a really easy fix. - the fridge door shelf is broken, and bottles wouldn’t fit except lying down, meaning we continually had leaking bottles and a mess to clean. I noted this on other reviews a while back, so to see it not fixed for a higher end cost properly was a bit disappointing. - I was texted on the day of arrival to ask if just one bed could be made up (the double not king with the views). Whether there is 2 of us staying or 4, I’d expect the option to decide when I’m there where I want to sleep without the presumption of this being in the bed with my guest. To avoid washing linen unnecessarily perhaps a sign could be left on the bed to say ‘don’t move me if you don’t use me’. To add, I asked for both to be made and they were so there was no issue, but I’d expect the full house to be ‘ready’ as standard. We did enjoy our stay here. There is no walking distance pub or place to eat but we were aware of this and willing to drive for days out, so this wasn’t an issue at all.

    The lodge itself has everything you need and was very clean, tidy and modern. What made this extra special was the amazing view and the outside covered area with the hot tub. We enjoyed outdoor cooking on the hot plate and although the weather in February wasn’t warm, the log burner kept us cosy. Definitely recommend staying here!

    The only little niggles are the shower head….you need to hold it up as it drops and faces the wall….minor but annoying when trying to wash and no large door pocket/shelf in fridge for things like larger cartons of milk or bottles of coke etc. Road might put some folks off as very narrow in bits but we were fine with it as we are used to these types of roads. Remote and no pubs/shops in immediate vicinity, definitely need a car. Nice little touch of milk and cake on arrival in lodge. Great for a peaceful break.

It is up a very steep hill, but Ludlow and the Ludlow Farm Shop and an Sainsburys, are only a short drive away. Great for our two dogs and there is a nice circular walk around the back of the property to a little fork in the road down the hill. Would definitely recommend if you want peace and quiet and a relaxing time. Bonus is the hot tub and watching the sunset from it.

  • "Peace and quiet guaranteed!"

    The lodge is in a lovely setting with an amazing view, and we didn’t see anyone for the whole time we were there (apart from our visit to Ludow). The lodge had everything we needed and although it was cold outside (February), the heating kept us warm and cosy. The beds and sofas were comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped & spotless. The outside space is great but it was a shame we didn’t get to use it much because of the cold weather. The hot tub, was clean, very relaxing and great for star gazing under the clear dark skies . Just a couple of nit picks… the garden is fairly secure and enclosed but keep an eye out if you have a small dog, our little 'Eddie' found a space to escape behind the back of the lodge within 5 minutes of arriving! No extra towels or robes were provided for the hot tub so make sure to bring your own. Would love to visit again in spring or autumn when it’s a bit warmer for alfresco dining or to enjoy the log burner in the outside cabin.

  • "Fantastic property in a wonderful location and tastefully decorated."

    The view down the valley is incredible whilst the outside space is first rate and that is without mentioning the hot tub, we had such a relaxing week at Hillside Lodge. The flat plate griddle in the outside cabin is great and I used it every day whilst the adjacent beer fridge was a welcome addition. Be warned though, this place is isolated and pubs, shops etc are several miles away but if you want a `get away from it all break` this is definitely the place to go. There were a couple of issues though...the location probably means you'll be cooking at the property most of the time (great for me as I love cooking!) but 1x bread knife and 1x paring knife is not enough to prepare a meal there really should be a decent knife block. Also, 4x 6" dimpled chopping boards are not much use to anyone, a decent big steak hangs over the edges so a good sized chopping board would be useful. Oh and I don't understand why we couldn't use the TV normally but better information on how to use the TV, microwave, dish washer etc would be very helpful all round. These are only minor issues though, it's a wonderful property and I would say it is one of the best value for money properties on Sykes` books. Highly recommended.

The front bedroom had the amazing view but the bed was too soft for us, however we realise this is personal preference. What sets this property apart is the outside space and the incredible view! Yes it’s remote but this is clear in the details and that’s the appeal for us. We loved being able to walk our dogs straight from our lodge up Clee Hill. Our dogs loved the garden but just a note to say it isn’t fully enclosed, it has small gaps where little dogs can get through into the field below. It wasn’t a problem for us but worth noting if your dogs are more adventurous. We also stayed at their other lodge Stoneybrook which is across the other side of the lane and very similar, both properties are lovely and we will definitely return.

    ....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.

About the location

LUDLOW

Church Stretton 15 miles; Hereford 25 miles; Shrewsbury 28 miles; Worcester 33 miles.

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.
