Larches Lodge is accessed from a dedicated parking area by a gravel path (approx 40m long) located along the lower level of the owners’ secluded, tiered garden. It’s a unique, magical space and yet only a short walk into Church Stretton centre with its eateries and bars, independent specialist shops and attractions. After a day’s activities maybe walking in the hills or hiring an electric bike, retreat into your personal haven and relax.

Church Stretton town centre is an easy stroll away offering specialist shops, a good-sized Co-op supermarket, cafes, restaurants, a wine bar, pubs, an antiques market, golf course and railway station. The train takes you to the centre of medieval Shrewsbury or the historic market town of Ludlow in approximately 15 minutes and is on the mainline from Cardiff to Manchester. Also within easy reach are notable sights such as the museums of Ironbridge, Stokesay Castle, and day trips to the Welsh coast, Chester and Snowdonia are also very feasible.

Please Note: Although the chalet is adjacent to Mark & Sara’s house the entrance is on the furthest side (see TripAdvisor reviews) and a wall & sail shades ensure the lodge is completely private. A 40m gravel path leads to the chalet and is shared with Oaks Lodge guests. The 50m private drive from Watling Street is quite steep which less mobile individuals may find a little challenging. Sorry but No Dogs due to our lovely cats owning the garden.

In consideration of neighbours there should be no outdoor music at any time and we kindly request that all noise is curtailed after 9.30pm at the latest (10pm Fri/Sat).

Very Good

“Peaceful and cosy getaway”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2018

A lovely cosy cabin in a stunning location. Although next to owners house it felt secluded. Lovely views out of the windows and lots of wildlife to watch. Larches lodge is in a great position, only a short walk to the centre of Church Stretton handy for the pubs and restaurants. The train station is also nearby with Ludlow and Shrewsbury only 15 minutes away so we could leave the car behind and enjoy a pint over lunch. Highly recommend the Ludlow Brewing Company, positioned near Ludlow station, particularly if you like craft beers. Lots of good walking nearby.

“Sleek log cabin with hot tub and a view.”

Reviewed 11 Oct 2018

This is a gem of a cabin in arms reach of Telford. Sara and Mark were very friendly and the finish in the cabin is modern and comfy. Giant bed, smart bathroom, kitchenette and log burner. Great view from the hot tub which was nicely sized for two people. Private and quiet other than the odd train in the valley! Excellent short break, very good value for money and will definitely think about checking in again. Highly reccomended!

“A peaceful retreat”

Reviewed 28 Sep 2018

We loved our stay at Larches Lodge, the owners are friendly and have thought of everything. The lodge is cosy but practical too, ideal for a couples getaway. A short walk down the hill into Church Stretton where you can find everything you need. The local walks are beautiful and can cater for all abilities. We hope to return soon.

Lovely lodge, spotlessly clean. Had an enjoyable and relaxing few days. Beautiful location. Would stay again

“Cosy and comfortable spot for a romantic getaway”

Reviewed 29 May 2018

We booked Larches Lodge for our anniversary weekend and throughly enjoyed it. We drove down on a rainy Friday afternoon and Mark was kind enough to allow us to check in early, which was a lovely start to the weekend. We especially enjoyed use of the hot tub during our stay, and wrapping up in blankets in front of the log burner into the early hours. BBQ/fire pit was also a bonus! Sara & Mark are perfect hosts.

“Looks just like the pictures”

I was recommended the lodge by a friend and they didn't let me down. The views were stunning and the lodge was just amazing. We loved our few days here and will certainly be coming again. The hot tub and fire pit were just brilliant.

An absolute beautiful lodge with picturesque surroundings. The owners from start to finish were brilliant, answering any questions and helping with setting up my wife's birthday. The town itself was gorgeous and the locals were very friendly. Plenty of places to visit and eat and drink. Can't wait to go back later on in the year
