  • "If you wish to have a great holiday based in Shropshire this is a great base to stay in."

    If you want a peaceful place to stay then this is the place. If you have pet dogs then this is an absolutely brilliant place to stay as you have nearly an acre of land for them to run to their hearts content. The cabin is superb.The hosts are so friendly, they came to see us the day after we arrived to see if everything was o/k and came again on the penultimate day to see if everything was o/k and wish us a safe journey home. We would not hesitate to book again. Thanks.

  • "We were the first family to use the cabin after lockdown, and a most welcome holiday it was."

    Mike and Sylvia, (who are wonderful) had already explained to us that a few things would be missing i.e. dvd,s, reading material, welcome pack etc etc. also when it would be time to leave how they wanted us to leave the towels, tea towels and bath mats in one of the bag provided and bedding in another, so that they could be quarantined before washing ready for next use. Taking all this into consideration our holiday was not spoilt in any manner at all. The cabin was fully equipped, comfortable, peaceful and homely. I can recommend sitting on the veranda either during the day or evening with a glass of your favourite tipple and just soak in the beauty that is Brynallt Cedar Log Cabin. It fulfilled everything we could have wished for a holiday for ourselves and two dogs. I cannot recommend this magical location enough.

  • "We had a wonderful relaxing weeks holiday at the Cedar Log Cabin which was set in its own 5 acres of grounds, so our dogs had plenty of room to run around and really enjoy themselves."

    Everything you could need was inside this comfortable cabin, plus extra sanitising products were supplied because of the recent Corona Virus outbreak which was great. We also found the Cabins information booklet very informative, especially as one of our dogs became ill whilst we were here, and there were leaflets for the local vets (blakemere vets) inside which was really helpful, and I have to say the veterinary clinic was amazing and managed to see us right away, and our dog was back to his normal lively self within a few days. We would highly recommend Cedar Lodge, and hope to visit again as the location is perfect, with plenty of local amenities only a short drive away.

    Mike and Sylvia provided much appreciated welcome pack of milk, butter and bread as well as bottle of wine and box of chocolates. Location is peaceful and beautiful. Our German Shepherd is of a nervous nature and loved the freedom and 'stress free' use of the grounds. Will definitely be booking again.

    Very dog friendly and our dog enjoyed the freedom of running in the 5 acre paddock adjoining the cabin.

The property

An attractive, detached, handmade Western Red Cedar log cabin, set on its own in a five acre paddock in the grounds of Brynallt Country Park, a large country estate, on the edge of Welsh Frankton, 3 miles from the famous meres (lakes) at Ellesmere.

This lovely log cabin, which is exceptionally well furnished and equipped, and makes a charming alternative to the usual Shropshire cottages, provides high quality, open plan accommodation, with contemporary fixtures and furnishings throughout.

The spacious front terrace overlooks the paddock, and is perfect for relaxing and dining alfresco.

Wonderful views over the Shropshire Plains can be found from the estate, and the area is renowned for scenic walks, fishing, boating, sailing and wildlife.

The attractions of both England and Wales are within reach; from the shops and zoo at Chester, to the World Heritage Centre of Ironbridge, the castle at Ludlow or the riverside walks and watersports at Llangollen.

A perfect base for a romantic getaway.

About the location


Ellesmere 3 miles; Oswestry 5 miles; Shrewsbury 20 miles.

The tiny hamlet of Welsh Frankton stands between the famous village of Whittington, the birthplace of the first Lord Mayor of London, and the delightful town of Ellesmere, which is a pretty market town with Tudor, Georgian and Victorian buildings, found nestling between the beautiful mere (lake) and the Shropshire/Llangollen Canal, in an area known as Shropshire's Lakeland. Originally a fortified Anglo-Saxon settlement, Ellesmere is steeped in history. The town is home to the lovely Church of Saint Mary, with its 15th Century roof and Thomas Telford was based in the town while building the canal. There are a variety of shops, good pubs and restaurants and an abundance of entertainment on and around the nine lakes, which surround the town. Stroll through Cremorne Gardens, enjoy fishing and sailing or explore Colemere Country Park with its wonderful wildlife and scenic walks. As the townspeople say, there really is ‘a mere for all’!
