Larches Retreat is an authentic Norwegian log cabin and offers outstanding views over the picturesque town of Church Stretton - often referred to as “Little Switzerland” - and the only market town to be found in South Shropshire's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. If you browse all holiday rentals in England on Trip Advisor, we're in the top ten with almost all 5/5 reviews.

• "The Hobbit" wood burner from Salamander Stoves provides real fire ambience for those cosy winter evenings. Kindling, logs and firelighters included.

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, Offa's Dyke, Weston Park and Buildwas Abbey to mention a few, and day trips to the Welsh coast, Chester and Snowdonia are also very feasible.

Larches Retreat is dwarfed by the glorious backdrop of the Long Mynd, Caradoc and Carding Mill Valley, all but a stone's throw away. You are spoilt for choice with many beautiful and scenic walks on the doorstep to suit both the less energetic and more experienced walkers. There are numerous routes for on and off-road cycling too. Church Stretton is a wonderful base from where you can explore all that Shropshire has to offer.

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. The gravel path is 40m from the parking area to the chalet and is shared with guests staying at Oaks Retreat who continue onward between two oak trees into the private dingle area of the garden. The private drive from Watling Street is 50m and quite steep which less mobile individuals may find a little challenging. Sorry but No Dogs due to our lovely burmese cats owning the garden.

We have recently partnered with MyPersonalSanctuary where you can book spa treatments to be taken at the lodge to make your stay even more special, please enquire.

“Perfect getaway”

Reviewed 22 Mar 2017

Lovely accommodation with everything we needed for a little break away! I liked the fact that the owners Sara and Mark went out of their way to make us feel welcome. I would definitely return to "The Larches" and recommend it.

“LARCHES RETREAT”

Reviewed 7 Feb 2017

What an amazing weekend me and my boyfriend had here. The location was great with amazing views especially on the walk that we went on (the pike- Sara sent us via email) the hottub was amazing and the cabin itself was lovely and equipped with everything we needed! I would definitely recommend going here, church stretton town is just a few minutes walk away and is lovely to have a little walk around! We also went to the Green Dragon pub for some food one night and that was really nice too! Thank you Sara and Mark for such a wonderful stay :)

“Absolutely wonderful!”

Reviewed 21 Jan 2017

What a beautiful find this little cabin was There were two on site but I chose the smaller one as a surprise birthday trip for my boyfriend Peaceful, relaxing, lovely wood burner ... And to be honest everything else we needed It really was wonderful Tucked away yet close to all amenities and some of the best walking in Shropshire I can't recommend it more highly

“Simply amazing cabin (and the hot tub makes it extra special!)”

Reviewed 16 Jan 2017

This was our fourth visit to the Larches and it just gets better and better. We love this place and use it as a retreat to get in touch with nature - with an easy walk into Church Stretton for a drink or a bite to eat in the evenings. The addition of the log burner has made it so warm and cosy (even in the snow/minus temperatures we experienced!). And the hot tub is fabulous. Makes it really special. Sara and Mark are wonderful hosts and nothing is ever too much trouble. Will definitely go back (as soon as we possibly can!)

“Excellent!”

Reviewed 5 Jan 2017

My husband and myself come to stay for a new year get away, we were greeted by Sara who showed us to our lodge, explained everything and was extremely helpful. The lodge is fantastic, clean and tidy and well equipped. We had the best time and can highly recommend this accommodation. Both Sara and Mark were more than helpful when booking with answering all of my (many) questions! Fantastic stay - thank you!

We had the best time staying at the Larches Retreat and would highly recommended it. Beautiful location, in a well-equipped and clean cabin, and our host Sara was great to deal with throughout. The only problem was the Shropshire weather!

“Amazing place to stay”

Reviewed 8 Dec 2016

Stayed here for a week with my new husband and it was a truly magical week. The lodge and people who own it are both fantastic and we couldn't have asked for anything nicer. The local town is beautiful and all the local pubs and restaurants were amazing. Would recommend to anyone and will definitely be returning in the future! Thank you so much for a wonderful honeymoon.

“Absolutely fantastic stay - Perfect and beautiful.”

Reviewed 16 Nov 2016

The directions to find the lodge are very easy to follow and Sara provided my wife and I with plenty of information about the local area, walks and places to eat. On arrival Mark welcomed us and showed us round the lodge with a smile. The cabin was already warm and the hot tub was ready to receive us. It is clean, warm and cosy with beautiful views. The log burner provides plenty of heat and is easy to setup for those who are unfamiliar with such things, but just in case you don't fancy it the cabin as central heating too. The lodge itself is in a perfect location. It’s nearer to town in case you wish to walk to the local stores, pubs and eating establishments and secluded enough so you're not disturbed and to feel like you’re out in the sticks. This place has everything you need in case you wish to stay in and cook for yourself, and for those who can’t really disconnect from the web the wifi is fully available with a good speed. In case it’s too cold and wet you really can snuggle before a fire, TV with netflix (don’t forget your login details) and even a drawer full of DVDs. Personally I recommend a walk into hills and to disappear for the day only to return for a long soak in the hot tub :D. I was most definitely recommend this to everyone and look forward a return visit in the future.
