  • "It was a beautiful spot, lovely accommodation and we loved every minute of our stay."

    Ps we really loved the prosecco thank you.

  • "A rare find that is even more impressive than the pictures suggest."

    A hugely relaxing and peaceful week by the river with only the sounds of the water and wildlife for company. Outdoor decking overlooking the beautiful scenery is enough to keep you busy, especially in the hot tub! The lodge is furnished well and is very clean, well appointed and cosy. It is impressive just how many things have been thought of to make the stay as comfortable as possible (the only possible addition to improve could be a fan for the warmer weather). The local area is quiet and not packed with things to do but the peaceful way of life and superb scenery more than make up for it. We look forward to returning in the future!

  • "A fantastic lodge with nearly everything you could think of provided."

    The bubbly, milk, biscuits and coffee pods were a lovely touch. The lodge was spacious and clean. The views from the decking were amazing, so quiet and peaceful. Lots to do in the area or you could just sit, chill and relax in the serenity. Would highly recommend the lodge and the park.

  • "For a quiet holiday in a beautiful location, it would be hard to find better, a well-managed site with friendly management and all the facilities you could want."

    We will be going back. The only difficulty we had was the local pub that did meals only some days.

  • "We had a wonderful time and we loved the cottage, especially the whirlpool."

    The beds were a bit short and small for us, because we are tall. The mattress of the children was a bit on the hard side unfortunately. We loved the sound of the river and the sound of the animals. And the surroundings were beautiful.

  • "Beautiful & peaceful riverside location, ideal for breakfast while watching the local ducks in the sunshine."

    Plenty of walks straight from the lodge, including 5mins to the village pub with amazing food and 2 miles to Purdslow for food too. Easy drive to plenty of nearby attractions. The lodge was well equipped with lots of nice little touches. The hot tub and log burner were well used. I'm recommending it to all of my friends.

    The lodge was immaculately clean, furnished and equipped to a very high standard and situated in a quiet and beautiful location I spent a week relaxing, having coffee on the deck, feeding the squirrels and birds and alternating between the hot tub and sitting in front of the log burner I highly recommend Willow River Lodge and would love to visit again

    More wildlife this time than when I visited a couple of years ago. Loads of birds to see and a squirrel visits each day. I will be back. Furnishings all updated since last visit. Beautiful.

  • "My wife and I had a wonderful week-long staycation at Willow Lodge in Clunton."

    It proved a very peaceful, and delightful location beside the river, and a great base for exploring Shropshire and nearby Mid-Wales in early September. We enjoyed walks on the local hillsides as well as on the Long Mynd, visiting Powis Castle, Ludlow, and the Red Kite feeding centre at Gigrin Farm, Rhayader, and dining at welcoming local pubs in the evening. The hot tub at the lodge was a big hit after a day's exploring. Some previous guests have reported seeing otters from the lodge. We didn't manage that, but we did see a kingfisher flying up and down the river on several days during our stay. Magical.

  • "I love this Lodge it is perfect for a peaceful get away in lovely surroundings that are beautifully maintained."

    I’ve stayed many times and it never disappoints. Everything is provided for you including a very welcome bottle of Prosecco & while the Lodge is in a pretty, secluded spot on the river, Ludlow & Shrewsbury are not far away. The owners, Marilyn & Keith are very kind & helpful and made every effort to ensure that I had another very enjoyable & restful week at the lodge. In the words of another large person, ‘I’ll be back.’

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.
