    Thomasina was most helpful and courteous. Always checked if it was convenient to check the hot tub. Not a problem at all that the owner lived next door. Highly recommend Bicton Lodge.

    Private, very comfortable and excellent facilities. A lovely welcome pack, and the hot-tub was maintained daily - early morning whilst we slept. We were very well looked after. The location is gorgeous, with stunning views of the fields and hills, and on a clear night the night sky is full of up-lighting to spoil the experience. We were a party of 4 adults, looking to have a relaxing unwind. It was perfect in every way. I'd highly recommend this cottage for a stay.

    ..the welcome basket of local produce like the pale ale, lemonade, Welsh cakes and fresh cut flowers from the garden was a fabulous welcomer. We had cows and sheep for neighbours all week and a fabulous hot tub we certainly put to good use as my bad back welcomed it . The cottage had most things you need for a great break and any recommendations were welcomed.Would definitely recommend the place.

  • "Our stay at Bicton Lodge was warmly welcomed by Thomasina."

    The lodge itself is perfect. It has beautiful scenery all around, about 1 mile outside of Clun so not to far from the local pubs for food and drinks. We visited Bicton Lodge for our honeymoon and Thomasina went the extra mile to make our stay perfect. The Lodge is very cosy, warm and beds were really comfortable. Thomasina even set up the super king for us. The hot tub is a fantastic added extra as you can just jump in whenever you feel like it and enjoy the scenery during the day and look up at the stars at night. Overall we would rate our stay as a 10 out of 10. We don't usually go back to places on a second visit we prefer to travel around and try new places but Bicton Lodge will definitely be somewhere we come back to again. We have also recommended it to many friends and family. The only bad thing about Bicton Lodge is that we only booked it up for 3 nights, we wish we would have had a full week. Thank you Thomasina for making our honeymoon perfect. Even leaving us a card and the little hand written note on the door made it feel extra special. Thank you

    Aww thank you for your lovely feedback. We are so glad you had a perfect stay and were only too happy to go the extra mile for your special occasion! Wishing you both much joy in your future together. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at Bicton lodge and would definitely recommend to friends to stay there."

    The lodge is quite a lot smaller than it appears in the pictures, but perfectly ample for a family of 4. The lodge was wonderfully furnished and very clean and had everything we could need for a weeks stay. We all enjoyed the hot tub and the daily visits from Couscous the cat. Although the property is next door to the owners they had made a really successful effort to make the lodge very private and although we knew the owners were there should we need them we were left to our own devices. The views from all windows from the lodge are absolutely amazing and to wake up to the sound of sheep, lambs and birdsong was a real treat. The beds were very comfortable and the bedding and towels were of a great quality. As a family of 4 we found the under-counter fridge with a small freezer compartment a struggle to accommodate food and drink for the week. Upstairs, the lack of storage space for clothes (mainly a wardrobe) was also an issue for 4 of us but we managed! A lovely, relaxing base in a beautiful countryside setting.

    The kitchen is very well equipped and everything is bagged afyer cleaning so you know anything used gets an extra clean on change over (even the remotes). The bedrooms and living area are comfortable and bedding was spotless, lovely fluffy towels are also provided. The lodge is perfect for 2 couples or a family of 4 with smart storage spaces, large beds and plenty of space to get ready. The owner was very friendly, helpful and on hand in you need her (but leaves you to it if you don't). The hot tub was the reason we booked and it didn't disappoint, lovely views and the perfect place to relax. Perfect spot for walks but not too far from local amenities including a well stocked spar 5 minutes drive away (or a nice 40 min walk along the river) there are also cafes and pubs in the village. Bigger supermarkets are around a 30 minute drive (all details are provided by the owner). The Wii and games were a lovely addition and kept us entertained on an evening. For families there is a great park in Bishops Castle only 5-10 minutes drive away. We had a fantastic holiday and would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet, comfortable and relaxing break.

    Great for walking. Hot tub was a treat. Living room was cosy. Great to have footstools which we have found quite rare. Beds were comfy. The walk into Clun was lovely. As we are tall we found upstairs a lttle cramped and kept banging our heads on the eaves. Really missed having a washing machine. Never even thought to check on booking because over the last twenty years of cottage holidays I don't believe we have ever stayed where there wasnt even access to a washer. If you are in the countryside and going walking where it can be very muddy it is good to be able to wash dirty clothes rather than bringing home. Minor point in the scheme of things and overall we had a lovely stay.

Our first time here and the cottage provided a fantastic base to get out walking all round the local beautiful areas, short drives to Powys Castle, Montgomery and Ludlow and even a drive out to take on a walk to the top of Snowdon - the location is ideal.

  • "It’s not what it’s made out to be."

    After reading all of the amazing reviews on this lodge me and my partner couldn’t wait to go. We booked 7 nights away there and we came home early. The lodge is in somebody back gardens, you don’t have any privacy. It fails to tell you that you are miles and miles away from any kind of shop. We had the owners son just walk straight into our gardens no warning not even a text message to check the hot tub. In the owners back garden there is a punch bag for the son, the son was on the punch bag from around 21:00 till around 22:30. The issue here is the punch bag is on a tree which hang in the garden of the lodge so we had leaves and branches breaking off into the garden right where the hot tub is, also when the bag is punched it hits the fencing of the lodge garden so for 1hr 30 minutes we had constant banging on the fence later on at night. We just didn’t have any privacy whatsoever so we left early. The lodge is only good for a couple of days and if you don’t want to do anything apart from chill at the lodge.

There is also a travel cot you could use. The lodge has been furnished to a high standard and I am sure anyone who stays here will not regret it!

  • "Our holiday at this property was just perfect."

    Starting with the fantastic service on behalf of Sykes. The owner of the property is very friendly and attentive. Regarding the property it was just ideal for us. Fantastic facilities, very comfy beds and extremely clean. The kitchen is well equipped, the downstairs is great too, wii games kept us entertained in the evening with the fire going and the hot tub was a real treat. the property is so lovely, its very apparent that the owners have put a lot of thought into it and pay attention to detail, you'll find all you need in the property form extra blankets in bedrooms to baking equipment in the kitchen. Fantastic views form the fab top to bottom double doors in the kitchen and the lounge area. It was so relaxing to wake up to the gorgeous views form the bedroom, fantastic rural getaway location. Just a step away form the lovely village of Clun, some great pubs for a drink and food and a fab starting point for a walk. We did a 5 mile walk and it was excellent, breathtaking views! Overall we would definitely recommend this property, for families or as a base for a romantic getaway for couples.

  • "Biction Lodge was a fabulous place to stay."

    It was in a great location, with superb view ( especially when it snowed) and we were warmly met by the owner who couldn't have done enough to make our stay the best it could be. We had everything we needed including a wide range of utensils and crockery and even decent pans and knives! We receive lots of local goodies on arrival and enjoyed all the attentions to detail that were in the lodge. It was beautifully decorated and the hot tub was a real treat. We would definitely recommend this property. Thank you

    Thomasina couldn't have been a more perfect host, she was there if we needed her but unobtrusive otherwise. The cottage is wonderful! Finished to a very high standard. The views from the lounge are amazing. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Wonderful!

The property

A charming detached lodge resting in the countryside landscapes of Bicton near Clun.

Wander past the natural views and into this cosy little hideaway, perfect for couples or friends.

First, you will come to an open plan living, kitchen and dining area, ideal for preparing your favourite dinner time meals, before sitting back in the comfortable armchairs to enjoy the spectacular uninterrupted views of the Clun valley.

A woodburning stove is tucked into the corner, and this room creates a soothing atmosphere for an afternoon reading session.

The kitchen is laced with bright lights and decorated with heritage colours throughout which projects a quality overtone from start to finish.

Take the stairs and you will arrive at a contemporary styled bathroom with attractive features throughout.

This leads round to a double bedroom which holds a calming feel and looks out over the garden.

A super king-size bedroom is adjacent to this, with a far-stretching window backdrop of open fields and greenery.

To the outside of the cottage, lies a lovely gravelled area with furniture, so that you can enjoy a glass of wine, close to the enticing scenery.

If this isn't enough, why not take a soak in the lovely hot tub while you admire the views.

Further afield, the village of Clun will bring you an abundance of wildlife, and beautiful unhindered walking and cycling routes to enhance your stay.

You can also enjoy exploring the historic towns of Bishop's Castle, Presteigne, Ludlow and Shrewsbury.

This retreat is a wonderful escape in a dreamy location.

About the location


Bishop's Castle 6 miles; Ludlow 18 miles.

A.E. Houseman's poem, A Shropshire Lad, defined Clun as 'the quietest place under the sun', and with its dramatic ruin of a Norman castle, Saxon church, the bustling river which flows under the 14th century pack horse bridge, and a country inn, Clun is a rural gem situated in the South Shropshire Hills. It lies on the Shropshire Way in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty close to the border of Wales, an area known as The Marches. This unspoilt part of Britain has an abundance of wildlife and beautiful unhindered walking and cycling routes winding their way through the countryside with the Clun and Kerry Forests, Offa's Dyke, and Kerry Ridgeway all close by. There are a wide range of festivals and shows on offer in the surrounding area throughout the year, including The Green Man festival in May. From Clun, you can also enjoy exploring the historic towns of Bishop's Castle, Presteigne, Ludlow, Shrewsbury, and Hereford, a must for visitors.
