  • "Great visit to Stoney-Brook."

    Just as described, very clean and comfortable. Excellent outdoor space to reflex, plus the hot tub is an added bonus. Marie, the owner very helpful if anything is needed during your stay. We will be back next year, highly recommend this lovely place.

  • "I didn't know what to expect as recently some of stays the places haven't matched up to the photos, but this place was genuinely better than the photos!"

    Completely secluded, convieniently located and supplied with everything and more I could want! It is a neat little place and comfortable with it. I took a holiday alone and brought some bits to keep me occupied which meant moving the furniture around but the owner didn't mind at all, I just used the place as I wished, I've booked again for next year.

  • "If you want peace and quiet, fantastic views and a beautiful cabin then this is the place for you!"

    The outside space is phenomenal and the hot tub completed a perfect holiday. We had a great mix of days out plus relaxing days at ‘home’, it really is in a fantastic location (and easy to get to as the directions are foolproof). There are books and games at the lodge (we took our own but really wasn’t necessary) and we found it well equipped, plenty of room for us and we are a family of 4 (grown up children). Marie, who owns the property called us when the lodge was ready and was only a short trip away if we needed anything. She is lovely and helpful. We took our own towels for the hot tub (towels are provided but it’s nice to keep the lodge towels for showers etc) and packed robes/dressing gowns to pop on after the hot tub. Marie checks the hot tub during the stay so you know it’s all running fine, there’s also a hose pipe to top up the tub should you need to. I highly recommend Stoney Brook Lodge, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 10/10 You will not regret booking this, we really had the best family break there!

  • "We have had a wonderful week away."

    Photos don't do justice to that amazing view and the outdoor area was perfect to sit out even if it rains. The garden isn't fenced all the way round but our dog never ventured from the lawn area so it should be fine for most (the areas that aren't fenced are surrounded by shrubs/long grass). It would have been nice to have dressing gowns for getting out of the hot tub and a couple of hooks to hang our towels on but we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Stoney-brooke Lodge to our friends so thank you again Marie for a wonderful stay!

  • "We had a wonderful time at Stoney-Brook Lodge, the living areas were very comfortable with everything you could need for a great holiday."

    The outside area is incredible, it’s such a party area! We used the hot tub every day and the kids really enjoyed roasting marshmallows on the fire. The weather was brilliant all week so we were out there at every opportunity. Clee Hill is just above the property and is a great walk, the view from the top is amazing. We took our dogs up there a few times and they had a whale of a time. We would definitely recommend staying here and would visit again. The only feedback we thought of during our stay was that it would be even more perfect if it had a couple more bedrooms so a larger group could stay as the outdoor area is definitely perfect for groups.

  • "Gorgeous cottage, amazing outside space."

    Loved cooking steak on the grill and sitting in the hot tub with that view! Worth the drive out to the various places we wanted to visit with our 7 year old. The Habberley Trail, West Mid Safari Park, Ironbridge. Make sure you walk up the 'incline' from the lodge to the old quarry buildings, got some great eerie industrial photos up there. Only complaint is that the directions to the property not very accurate and the postcode in the sat nav took us to the wrong place. No sign for Bedlam until you actually reach Bedlam and it's not on any map!? Two entrances to Bitterley from the A road, both 1 1/2 miles not 1!

  • "We had a fabulous 4 nights stay at Stoneybrook Lodge."

    Marie and Neil were excellent hosts and couldn't do enough for us! Amazing location overlooking the beautiful countryside, great location for exploring the wonderful landscape. A visit to the Ludlow Farm Shop (c10 minutes away) is a must, as is a trip to the Ludlow Brewery!

  • "The cottage itself is beautiful, as are the grounds."

    We took our two dogs and having a secure garden is extremely important. The log burners, the hot tub and the general feel of the place made it an extremely relaxing weekend, especially at the beginning of December. There is something lovely about sitting in a hot tub with a fire roaring and the sound of rain on the roof... Ludlow is a beautiful old town and I would recommend at least having a look around the castle while you're there even if you do nothing else. One tip. Read the directions on the emails and the app. Ignore Google Maps when trying to get to the cottage. If you don't it will take you on a journey I can only compare to a Top Gear Special. Yes, you'll make it, but the car might need to be shot and put out of its misery. A lovely place that I would be happy to return to, perhaps in the summer next time.

  • "The lodge and setting was fantastic."

    We had a thoroughly relaxing holiday and would highly recommend Stoney-brook lodge to anyone wanting a nice peaceful break. As the lodge is off the beaten track a bit I would recommend people arriving with enough food and drink to make it through the first night as once you get to the lodge you won’t want to leave to visit the supermarket.

  • "The Lodge is warm and cosy, especially with the wood burner in use."

    It was a particularly cold and wet week with snow showers and high winds, had we not had the log burner on then it would have been cold as there is only a small electric heater in the living area. We did have to ask the owner for more wood and she kept us supplied with regular top-ups. In fact the owner, Marie, was quick to respond to any requests or needs that were pointed out to her. The directions to the Lodge should mention that it is necessary to take the lane marked as "No Through Road" to get to Bedlam and the lodge. There are two lodges, with Hillside on the left and Stoney Brook on the right hand side of the lane when travelling uphill. The location is nice with extensive views over a valley over and beyond Ludlow.

    Perfect cottage, clean and well stocked. Had a great few days away relaxing and chilling out in the hot tub which is clean and well maintained. Only saw the owner as we checked in but she lives near by and is very welcoming and friendly. Even though it is remote, it easy to find if you use the postcode provided on sat-nav. Will definitely be back again and have already been recommending it to everyone!

  • "We love this place, this was our 3rd visit and on the way home booked again."

    It is our ‘off grid’ haven (but WiFi and TV if needed!). We love the walk from the lodge up the hills, views are amazing. Our dogs love it here too and letting them run about in the garden off lead makes life so much easier than places where they have to be harnessed/lead/staked. You need leads on for walks because of sheep so running free in the garden is great. Mortimer forest is a great trip out. Marie is a wonderful host, she makes you feel like friends returning from the first visit. Anything you need she sorts immediately.
