  • "Our stay at Ragleth Place Lodge was very comfortable and all the facilities we required were in place."

    The setting is lovely, up against the hillside and we enjoyed the use of the patio where we could watch the buzzards and other birds. It was a good location and ideal for walking on the Long Mynd. We would definitely recommend the place to others and it is one that we would return to. The owners Chris and Wendy are very nice and the welcome package was thoroughly enjoyed. Many thanks.

    It’s well located - next to a pub that serves good food! Well placed for walks with stunning scenery and towns with historical interest. The property itself is beautifully presented, warm and cosy and caters for your every need. Would definitely recommend Ragleth Place Lodge, without hesitation.

  • "Great stay."

    Owner had left 2 pints of milk small uncut loaf 2 scones jam and clotted cream. Lovely surprise. Lovely touch. It was a well equipped kitchen. We cooked every night. Really comfortable. It is attached to the owners house but didn't hear them. Downstairs conservatory has lino on the floor so great for taking a wet dog in and drying him off before going upstairs into the rest of the lodge. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

  • "From booking, staying, and returning we couldn’t fault Sykes."

    We were always kept informed and directions etc were all helpful. The accommodation was as advertised and was lovely and clean. The owners were very friendly and couldn’t be more helpful, and the gift of fresh scones with jam and cream on arrival was a lovely touch. It’s in a stunning location with walks straight from the door. The surrounding areas were all very lovely and we especially enjoyed Ludlow. We would definitely stay again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

    Attached to the owners property but totally private. Wonderfully warm and cosy and the bed is so comfortable, we slept the best sleep ever. The balcony at the rear to the property was perfect and secluded for morning coffee or evening drinks. Location perfect for touring and walking. Two fantastic pubs within 5 mins walk of the accommodation.

    A well appointed lodge, with all the comforts and facilities to make it a perfect base to come back and relax or visit one of the 2 local pubs. A warm greeting from the hosts who were available, if needed, but totally unintrusive during my stay. Thanks for the special touches of the welcome pack. This is certainly a place I would return to stay if I visit this area again.

    We were greeted by Wendy on arrival and informed of how to access the property (Wendy would usually show guests round but due to covid that wasn’t possible). We had a lovely fresh bread loaf, milk, scones, jam, cream and strawberries waiting for us. This was greatly appreciated after a 3 hour drive!! The whole place was clean, well presented and had by far one of the comfiest beds we’ve slept on! There are 2 lovely pubs close by and the food and service was great! The experience itself is just what we needed- back to nature, romantic, with lots to explore and our dog loved the wildlife too!! We will hopefully be back soon! I would recommend this property to anyone as you are guaranteed to have a lovely stay

  • "This is a lovely holiday cottage; clean, comfortable and cosy."

    Our hosts were very friendy and provided us with a generous welcome pack on arrival. The weather during our stay was very mixed which made the ground floor sun room, which doubles up as a drying area, a bonus for drying wet walking gear away from the main appartment. We would definitely consider paying a return visit to this property if our holiday plans lead us back to this area.

    We have been booking holidays via Sykes for many years and expect the best at a great price. That’s what we found at Ragleth Lodge. A spacious and well designed annex with everything we needed. All was of a good quality and the owners achieved that balance of being on hand if needed but also providing us with complete privacy to enjoy our holiday. The weather was challenging but the area so beautiful it still tempted us out for some lovely walks. We intend to return in the future. Many thanks.

    Wendy and Chris made us very welcome and their annex is a very comfortable, quiet and secluded place to stay The walking in this area is excellent, varied and with stunning views; some steep climbs but not too high. Four days we walked from the Lodge. The bus service up and down the valley is good - reliable and with friendly and helpful drivers.
