A TRANQUIL, RIVERSIDE LOCATION.
A beautifully presented, single-storey bespoke wooden lodge on a small park of ten lodges ideally situated beside the River Clun. The park in Clunton is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the heart of Shropshire's Clun Valley. Immaculate throughout and providing spacious, contemporary accommodation, this wonderful Shropshire lodge, near the town of Clun, sits in a superb position next to the river.
It is perfect for a romantic retreat or provides a peaceful hideaway for those seeking a relaxing holiday in an idyllic setting. This lodge, one of the larger lodges on the site, has been thoughtfully decorated and is set entirely across the ground floor. Guests will find two charming bedrooms with luxury beds, a large, well-equipped kitchen, a bright dining area plus a comfortable lounge. On one side of the lounge are two full size glass windows with a patio door in the middle affording attractive views over the river. On warm summer evenings this sliding door can be swept open to give access to the side decking and allow a cool breeze inside . On the front wall are two more sliding patio doors with views over the rolling hills. Wander out onto the raised decking with your morning coffee and revel in the peace and tranquility of the area, or simply relax at the river side and try your hand at fishing on a sunny afternoon (rod licence required). The decking area attracts the late sun, so chill out with a glass of wine or wander down the lane to the traditional English pub which serves great food.
There are excellent walks and cycle paths from the doorstep of this Shropshire lodge, with the enchanting wildlife site of Clunton Coppice just a short stroll away. Bury Ditches is close by, boasting an impressive Iron Age earthwork fort from which uninterrupted views can be enjoyed. The local history of this impressive area can also be discovered in Clun, with its romantic 11th century castle ruin and local amenities including shops, tea rooms and welcoming rustic pubs. Ash Lodge is an outstanding lodge, ideal for a memorable holiday at any time of year. If you like your modern electronics, you'll love the latest LED Samsung telly with freesat (freeview), along with a bluray/dvd player. There is also a separate hi-fi system with ipod/iphone dock. It even has a phone for guests to use free of charge.
This stunning location is perfect for those looking for a quiet base from which to explore the Shropshire countryside on foot or by bicycle or car. Many places of interest nearby and there's no need to travel for fishing or bird watching.
Due to the nearby unprotected river, we think the lodge is suitable only for supervised children. However the decking is enclosed and can keep children safe.

The Shropshire region
Shropshire is a secret holiday destination, so don't tell too many people! Shropshire is one of the most rural counties in the UK, with many parts designated 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. With Wales just over the border there is a lot to explore with many National Trust properties, along with castles and many more interesting places to go to. People say that once they've discovered Shropshire, they come back time and time again.
A.E. Houseman's poem “ A Shropshire Lad” called Clun “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 three country inns, Clun is a rural gem situated in the South Shropshire Hills. It lies in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty close to the border of Wales, in an area known as The Marches. This unspoilt part of Britain has an abundance of wildlife and beautiful unhindered walking and cycling country with the Clun and Kerry Forests, Offa's Dyke and Kerry Ridgeway all close by. Enjoy the historic towns of Bishops Castle, Presteigne, Ludlow, Shrewsbury and Hereford - a must for visitors. A ten minute walk up the lane brings you to Clunton's pub called The Crown. The pub serves lovely food, cooked by a chef and it is highly recommended that you book a table to avoid disappointment. They also serve several real ales, including ones from local breweries. However, the place to go for foodies, is the historic town of Ludlow, which has a famous annual food festival in mid September that is not to be missed.

"Our first stay in Shropshire but not our last!!!"
Firstly what can I say about the lodge? The lodge is impeccably clean & comfortable and well positioned within the valley of Clun with stunning views. Everything you need is in the lodge including a landline phone to call home to say inform loved ones we had arrived safely is a thoughtful and appreciated extra touch due to no mobile signal. David rang to ensure all was ok (again another thoughtful touch) where we were delighted to tell him we were lucky enough to see the otter!! food at the local pub The Crown Inn was pleniful and delicious and all the locals were very friendly. We can't wait to return if you enjoy stunning countryside and superb accomodation I would highly recommend a stay here. We will be back!!!
What a delightful review. We are so glad our guests enjoyed their stay in Ash Lodge so much. They were particularly lucky to see the otter as only a few have seen it so far. We look forward to welcoming them back.

"Paradise in Shropshire"
When we arrived at the lodge and opened the patio doors and looked at the river running by with a family of ducks swimming upstream, we thought we had arrived in paradise. The facilities are of a very high standard with everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We will be back.
We are so pleased our guests enjoyed their stay in Ash Lodge, along with the resident ducks. I'm sure they all had a quacking good time!

"Wrapped in peace and tranquility!"
We are not going to wax lyrical about this property. There is simply no need as everyone has already said all that needs to be said! Suffice to say, for the sensible price being charged for this spotless property, you will not find another lodge in a more perfect setting or one that is presented and maintained to a higher standard. Ash Lodge offers everything a holiday lodge should and also has considerate owners who will phone to check after your arrival that all is to your satisfaction. Although the owners have had the lodge for some time, we felt like we the first to have used it and as far as a relaxing weekend break goes, our stay could not have been any better. Thank you to the owners David and Denise.
Wow, we are overwhelmed by the lovely review left by Matt & Dee. We really do appreciate the sentiments expressed. We think the lodge is special, but it's lovely to hear other people think so as well.

Had a lovely relaxing 3 night stay at Ash Lodge,The owner very kindly phoned to check we had everything we needed. The lodge is very clean and warm, and the owner's have thought of everything you would need.The surrounding's are stunning and there are some lovely walk's. The lodge is next to a river so peaceful, Had a lovely meal at Boar's head hotel in Bishops castle, and a very friendly welcome, when we called for a drink at the crown pub, 5 min's walk from the lodge. Would definitely recommend a break here to recharge your batteries.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay in South Shropshire. We agree there are some excellent pubs with great menus in the near vicinity.

"Quiet Christmas Break"
In a peaceful setting in a beautiful valley, Ash Lodge is situated right beside the River Clun,overlooking the meadows at the rear across to the hills behind and around. The lodge is very well equipped,with every modern convenience and and has been tastefully and thoughtfully decorated . David took the trouble to telephone us on our first evening to ensure all was well with us . We found the central heating a great boon as the temperatures went down to minus7 on a couple of nights!. The food at the Crown proved excellent but beware the portions are quite generous! The very pleasant local scenery made this a very nice place to be for a relaxing break..
What a lovely review. We are so pleased our Christmas guests enjoyed their stay so much. Also glad the central heating proved its worth!

The Lodge is set in a very peaceful location - just perfect for our short break. Ash Lodge is very comfortable, well equipped and beautifully warm. It was much appreciated that Mr Smith telephoned on our first evening to check all OK. My husband and I will certainly be using Ash Lodge in the future and hopefully when we can do more walking.
We are delighted our guests enjoyed the lodge so much and appreciated the peaceful location. We look forward to welcoming them back.
