    This is a gem of a cottage and the garden is just so big ! Wonderful trees plants and colours. Quiet and cosy with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. Not far from Bridgnorth and the severn valley railway is a definite bonus. So is ironbridge. Lots to see and do here. We will be returning. Thank you for a memorable week.

  • "This is the best Sykes cottage that we have stayed at."

    If you are looking peace and quiet, surrounded by beautiful scenery then this is the place for you. Liz and Andy are the the perfect hosts from start to hand and were always on hand to chat or to advise on the places to explore. When you arrive they provide a welcome pack that consists of local foods and that will cater to you. The lodge itself is cosy, set within the owners garden which is yours to explore and relax in. The owners maintain the garden well, with numerous paths to explore you will always come across something new. We were able to spend most nights in the decked garden area, using the fire pit for marshmallows one night. Our hosts even joining us and having a long chat. With being in the countryside you will get to see the stars out in force and will get to enjoy the call of many animals in the night including owls. The only downfall is eventually you have to leave at some point. Oh and whilst I remember our hosts surprised us with fresh scones which were yummy.

    Thank you for your lovely write up, it's much appreciated! We were thrilled that you used the garden areas, we love to see guests enjoy it as much as we do and thank you for inviting us to join you. Property Owner

    It was an excellent base for our hobby of geocaching with many series with in 20 minutes drive away but there are walks & cycle routes close by to enjoy the countryside too.

Liz & Andy were great hosts & we wanted for nothing; the welcome pack was the most generous one that we had ever had & Liz baked us delicious scones too!

The property

Bridgnorth 3.9 miles.The Garden Lodge is a delightful, single storey lodge set in the owner’s extensive mature garden, within the hamlet of Criddon.

The lodge was a former Air Force barracks wash house but now offers a romantic retreat for couples looking to escape normal life and see what Shropshire has to offer.

Boasting an open-plan living space, here you can prepare home-cooked meals within the kitchen before settling down in front of the TV, choosing a good film to watch as you ease into the evening.

Move into the double bedroom to catch your rest, housing ample storage plus an en-suite shower room where you prepare for the day.

The wow factor of this property is the gorgeous garden, boasting almost an acre of mature trees and shrubs, making this is an ideal base for any naturalist or garden lover.

The patio area is perfect for alfresco dining on a balmy evening or for sitting under the stars toasting marshmallows over the firepit.

Venture into Bridgnorth in search of a souvenir to take back home, before stopping off at a traditional pub or restaurant to quench your thirst and sample a delicious meal.

The surrounding area is filled with natural beauty; explore country parks, impressive houses, museums and picturesque Shropshire villages, as well as easy access to the Royal Air Force Museum at Cosford, and Ironbridge Gorge, considered the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.

History lovers will be drawn to the 16th century Elizabethan manor, Upton Cressett Hall or the remains of Bridgnorth Castle, a 12th century structure that was demolished upon Oliver Cromwell’s orders.

The River Severn is not far away and provides an idyllic setting for riverside walks and cycles.

The Garden Lodge offers a delightful base for couples to call home, providing access to many quaint towns and villages in Shropshire. .

About the location

BRIDGNORTH

Much Wenlock 8 miles; Ironbridge 15 miles; Shrewsbury 20 miles; Ludlow 20 miles; Church Stretton 20 miles.

The market town of Bridgnorth lies in two very distinct halves - the High Town and the Low Town - separated by the red sandstone ridge on which the town is built. The two halves are connected by winding streets and flights of steps, or there is always the steep funicular railway, enabling the weary traveller to glimpse what Charles I called "the finest view in all my kingdom". A bustling Saturday street market provides an ample excuse to explore the town and examine the castle ruins, which lean at a greater angle than the Leaning Tower of Pisa! Flowing below is the River Severn, providing many pleasant riverside walks. The Severn Valley Railway runs between Bridgnorth and Kidderminster, and runs a variety of steam and diesel engines through picturesque country stations. In the areas surrounding Bridgnorth, there are a wealth of country parks, impressive houses, museums and picturesque Shropshire villages, as well as easy access to The Royal Air Force Museum at Cosford, and Ironbridge Gorge, with its 10 museums and striking landscape. The area offers excellent walking, and with the popular destinations of Shrewsbury, Ludlow and Church Stretton all within easy reach, it is ideal for a visit any time of the year.

This property offers the following short breaks:

  • Winter
  • Off-season
  • Last minute
