  • "A perfect stay."

    The cottage completely satisfied our needs. It is very private being lost in the surrounding garden, meadow and woodland-even though the owners are only 40 met. away. Very quiet so plenty of wildlife which the owners have encouraged by their planting (birds, butterflies, moths at this time of year). Plenty to do on your doorstep if you like walking and old villages. Good places to eat nearby, especially Bishops Castle. An excellent place to get away from it all. John

    Thank you so much for your excellent feedback and we are so glad you enjoyed not only the accommodation but the local area. It was a pleasure to have you stay. Best regards Chad Property Owner

  • "The perfect secluded haven/sanctuary we needed to escape the world."

    Lovely walking around the grounds of woodland and wild flower meadows early morning / late evening with a background of birdsong. Watching the sunset behind the wooded hills noshing on toasted marshmallows around the fire pit. Good wifi if you do decide to turn a screen on, super comfy bed, nice bathroom and more than adequate kitchen for the four nights we stayed. Lovely to just get the supplies needed and stay put awhile but plenty of local walks, village pubs/cafes/supermarkets and curio shops just a short drive away. So glad to have booked here - definitely a treat, ticked every box for us and would highly recommend.

    Thank you for your lovely comments, it was a pleasure to have hosted you both. Property Owner

  • "We had a great stay at No1 The Lodge."

    We were met by Joy and Francis who showed us though the property and how everything worked. They were both very pleasant and helpful. No1 is situated in a private spot. It is quiet, comfortable, and appointed to a very high standard. The outside areas also work really well, with a BBQ and fire pit and a lovely outlook over the surrounding countryside. Access to nearby attractions, restaurants, and pubs is simple. The owners have also put a comprehensive guide together. Would definitely recommend staying here if you would like a peaceful break in beautiful countryside.

    Thank you for being our first guests through Sykes. It was a pleasure to have you stay with us, thanks for your great feedback and we look forward to your return. Property Owner

The property

Bishop's Castle 2.7 miles.

Nestled in a rural valley in Acton, near Bishop's Castle, a market town on the border of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Shropshire, is this single-storey eco lodge, Lodge 1.

Enveloped by 8-acres of woodlands, and finished to an opulent standard, Lodge 1 is perfect for a couple, longing for a romantic countryside break.

Built to high-end Eco conscious standards, the lodge has a heat recovery system which supplies fresh filtered air with minimum environmental impact.

Climbing the external steps to the lodge, take in the stillness of your new abode, whilst entering the spectacular open-plan living space; prepare your meals in the contemporary kitchen, toast your stay around the dining table, and relax in front of the TV, situated in the Scandinavian-style sitting area.

Once the sun makes an appearance, opt for alfresco dining upon your private patio, or perhaps light the firepit and enjoy a romantic night under the stars once dusk sets in.

To rest your eyes, discover the stylish super king-size bedroom, with wooden floors, and direct views out to the lodge's backdrop.

The property is completed with a sleek en-suite bathroom, featuring fresh, high-quality fixtures, where you can unwind in the free-standing bath, or take a refreshing shower in the marble effect walk-in shower.

The lodge itself is positioned for privacy and remoteness from the hustle and bustle, with rolling fields and woodlands as your neighbours, yet a short car journey will bring you to Bishop's Castle, home to all your amenities.

Those who enjoy walking and spending time outside will appreciate strolls around Llyn Coed y Dinas, will relish in a hike up the terrain of Stiperstones National Nature Reserve, and will love the chance to trek through The Vinnals, offering panoramic views of Shropshire from its summit.

History surrounds the county, where you can discover the remains of Clun Castle, set on the border of Wales, Montgomery Castle, and its preserved structure, and the medieval grounds of Ludlow Castle, both grand and picturesque, overlooking River Teme.

Powys Castle and Garden, Cambrian Railway Museum, and Carding Mill Valley and the Long Mynd also surround your new abode, offering something for everyone.

Make memories at Lodge 1 in Shropshire, whether you enjoy nature-filled adventures or indoor exploration.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
