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. NEW DECKING FURNITURE FOR 2016.

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 England 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.

Clun

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.

“Fabulous!”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2016

A beautiful, peaceful and tranquil lodge. Spotlessly clean and so very comfortable. Quiet position and we drifted off to sleep everynight with the sound of the little river outside. 10 minutes walk to the local friendly pub and well positioned to enjoy the villages and places of interest in Shropshire.

Thanks to our guests for the lovely review they've left. As mentioned there are some lovely towns and villages to visit in the area. We appreciate our guests taking the time to leave the review.

“Heavenly escape”

Reviewed 19 Jan 2016

A real treat in the countryside, right on the river! Ash Lodge was an absolute dream stay, set in the countryside and situated right on the river bank, waking up to the sound of the flowing river was HEAVEN! The lodge is very well heated, we stayed over a cold January weekend and was very comfortable inside the lodge. It was just myself and my partner that stayed at the lodge but there is a second bedroom with two single beds also, which would have been ideal for another two adults, the lodge is bigger that we had expected. The living room is spectacular, glass windows that open up across the two walls, with views onto the fields with grazing sheep to the left and and flowing river to the right. We went to the nearby Ludlow the one day which was only around 25mins away and a great day/evening out. We also went for a walk up the hills to see great views, I am four months pregnant and this walking was not too much for myself but we could have done even more if i was a bit more capable - my point being, whether you are a keen walker or not there is a great walk with fantastic views for you! Plenty of friendly sheep! The kitchen had everything you could possibly need, every utensil under the sun. Also a great collection of DVD's and books in the lodge which was a nice surprise. We will definitely be returning, if not this summer then definitely next. Great weekend, wish i was back there!

We are bowled over by such a lovely review. We are so pleased our guests enjoyed their stay so much and we would be delighted if they chose to book again.

“Excellent accommodation in a beautiful setting”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2015

Having recently discovered the beautiful county of Shropshire, we think Ash Lodge is the perfect place to stay if you love the countryside but also want to visit the many interesting towns and villages within easy reach. We highly recommend it as we both feel it's the best holiday rental we've ever had. We've never before done a review on Tripadvisor but David and Denise certainly deserve this recommendation as they've got it absolutely right. In fact, we've now got a photo of the view down the river taken from the lounge in Ash Lodge as our desktop on our computer to remind us of a wonderful holiday.

We are so pleased John & Shirley enjoyed their stay in Ash Lodge and have begun to discover the delights of Shropshire. We really appreciate the lovely review they've given. Sounds like they now have the same desk top view on their computer as we have!

“Well appointed, clean and comfortable lodge, with lovely countryside views”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2015

Ash Lodge was spacious, modern, clean and comfortable with everything you need, including binoculars to view the local wildlife. Set in a small, quiet lodge site. next to the river Clun, it affords uninterrupted views across the fields and up to the surrounding forested hills. A friendly pub with good food is only 5 minutes walk down the lane. Lots of walks for all fitness levels can easily be accessed. We hope to go again sometime.

We are delighted our guests enjoyed their stay so much. We look forward to welcoming them back another time.

“Our first stay in Shropshire but not our last!!!”

Reviewed 17 Mar 2015

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”

Reviewed 16 Mar 2015

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!
