We stayed at Elm Lodge for a Easter Family holiday with our daughter who is five
We loved every minute. The lodge is really well equipped. We wanted for nothing.
The hot tub was amazing and while not fully private, we were never disturbed. We felt it was a little cool on arrival and asked for the temperature to be increased, which was done without any hassle. We meet Phil a couple of times and he spent a good amount of time chatting, very easy to get on with and accommodating. There is some light construction happening on the other lodges, aside from some occasional drilling we didn't hear anything and it doesn't disturb the view from the lodge.
The lodge is really well situated. The lodges over looks the tree canopy in the near by woods and the sunsets were amazing. It really catches the sun at the end of the day.
Other notes. The wifi is very poor, sometimes too slow to open even basic webpages although it did improve at times. However we did have good mobile reception so we just used that instead for planning. Not the owners fault, it's a shared connection I believe. Really good water pressure. It has a washer drier which is really useful and a dishwasher.
There is lots to do in the local area. We enjoyed going out for a run in the beautiful local countryside, including down to the local ford. The steam train through the Severn Valley is nearby and I would thoroughly recommend. Also, it is a short drive to the Ship, which does excellent and good value food and enjoyed views over the Severn.
We booked direct with Phil and Sue and enjoyed really good communication, all queries answered promptly before and during our stay.
I hope we get to visit again in the future. Recommended.
A lovely lodge, very nicely presented, well equipped with all amenities and wonderful hot tub. Lovely quite spot with surrounding fields and woodlands. Ideal for walks. We'll visit again.
Wow, what a place! It really is such a beautiful lodge, stunningly presented and so well kept. A really lovely touch of the owners to leave us a welcome gift, which was thoroughly enjoyed in the hot tub!
This place was absolutely spotless and had everything and more that you need for a mini break away.
Woukd highly recommend to anyone wanted a relaxing break away.
Elm Lodge is a beautifully appointed, well kept, spotlessly clean, wonderful place to stay. We really enjoyed both the view of the woodland & watching birds from the balcony at the rear, and watching the baby lambs jump and gallop in the field at the front. It is a very peaceful setting with only the sound of sheep and bird song to keep you company. They are currently building a few more lodges nearby, but do not let that put you off, it is very quiet, and you cannot see this from the lodge. Inside, we couldn't have asked for more. Everything we needed was here. And more...including the Prosseco waiting for us on our arrival - which we enjoyed in the hot tub (yes, even in February!). The lodge was very comfortable and immaculately clean. Highly recommended! As for Shropshire, BrIdgnorth is a super market town with great shops and restaurants. Best meal was at The Kings Head. Ironbridge is definitely worth a trip, and RAF Cosford makes for a super day out.
