    “Paradise”

    My partner and I stayed in the Wilderness Lodge with another couple. It was absolutely spectacular! It's not often that a place looks better in person than the pictures but this place exceeded our expectations in every way. The lodge is right in the middle of the Shropshire nature reserve. The walks in the surrounding area provide you with spectacular views of the countryside full of wildlife and natural beauty. We had regular visitors... Three peregrine falcons that circled above the lodge ...

    My partner and I stayed in the Wilderness Lodge with another couple. It was absolutely spectacular! It's not often that a place looks better in person than the pictures but this place exceeded our expectations in every way. The lodge is right in the middle of the Shropshire nature reserve. The walks in the surrounding area provide you with spectacular views of the countryside full of wildlife and natural beauty. We had regular visitors... Three peregrine falcons that circled above the lodge every day. We loved sitting in the wood fired hot tub of an evening and relaxing. The lodge has great facilities, everything you need from cooking utensils to board games. The shop at the bottom of the hill is well stocked and fairly priced and the pub next door are extremely friendly and the food was very reasonable. Snail Beach mines are definitely worth a trip to but make sure you look on their Facebook page for when they are open/running tours as we went on a Saturday expecting it to be open and it wasn't but it was still good to look round. I can't wait to come back here again. Only downside was that the single beds in the second room are too small for an average sized adult so it would be good if the room could be adapted for a second couple. Would definitely recommend and I can't wait to go back!

The property

Stunning rustic, wooden lodge nestled in the natural woodland at the foot of the Stiperstones Hill range, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty amidst the Shropshire Hills.

Wilderness Lodge is the perfect destination for friends and family looking for a luxury getaway or a romantic break in perfect tranquil surroundings.

Beautifully furnished throughout in keeping with its rustic theme, the lodge is all on one floor.

Head into the spacious open plan living area, which has many welcoming features including a woodburner, comfortable sofas, well-equipped kitchen and French doors opening out onto the surrounding decking.

From the open plan living area you will find a lovely bathroom and two double bedrooms, all stylishly furnished.

On cool evenings the sitting area with its warming woodburner is the perfect place to relax or on warmer evenings there is ample space on the decking to sit back and gaze at the stars.

Whatever the time of day or year, the soothing hot tub will add that extra bit of luxury to your stay in this lovely wooden lodge.

Outside, the decking extends around two sides of the lodge and overlooks the natural pond in the garden within the natural surroundings of this lovely wooded area.

The popular Stiperstones village pub and the local shop are just 10 minutes on foot, and there are wonderful scenic walks and mountain bike trails on your doorstep.

Why not spend a day visiting the historic county town of Shrewsbury with its medieval architecture, individual shops, riverside walks and cafés and restaurants?

For history lovers the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge with its many museums, including the Living History Museum at Blists Hill is a must or perhaps touring round visiting the variety of National Trust properties and lovely gardens in the area might be more to your liking.

There are many pretty towns and villages in this part of Shropshire, including Much Wenlock, Church Stretton, Bridgnorth and Ludlow and if you want to venture further afield you are within easy travelling distance to Oswestry and across into Mid Wales.

This lovely rustic Stiperstones lodge is a superb base for friends and family to explore Shropshire, whatever the season.

About the location

STIPERSTONES

Church Stretton 8 miles; Shrewsbury 12 miles; Bishop’s Castle 12 miles; Ludlow 27 miles.

The village of Stiperstones nestles in an unspoilt valley on the slopes of the beautiful Stiperstones Hill range and is only eight miles from the delightful Church Stretton and 12 miles from the historic towns of Shrewsbury and Bishop’s Castle. This small Shropshire village boasts a shop and charming inn and is a perfect starting point for many scenic trails, with the summit of the famous Stiperstones Hill, a 1.5 mile walk, and the East Ridge Wood mountain bike trails very close by. This area is a designated National Nature Reserve, a SSSI and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is consequently a favourite place for outdoor and wildlife enthusiasts. The Stiperstones Hill range is dominated by dramatic quartzite tors, which tower above an unspoilt heathland, the most famous is the Devil’s Chair, whilst Manstone Rock is the highest point at 536m above sea level and offers stunning views on a clear day. A short drive away is one of England's finest heritage towns with over 600 listed buildings; Shrewsbury nestles on a loop of the River Severn. Shrewsbury has a magnificent abbey as well as Shrewsbury Castle, which stands in beautiful gardens and is home to the Shropshire Regimental Museum. There's plenty of interesting things to do in the area, with Attingham Park, Wroxeter Roman City, the museums at Ironbridge, and the castle and Michelin-starred restaurants of Ludlow, all making this hillside village the perfect touring spot for your Shropshire adventure.
