Cedar Lodge makes a beautiful base for groups wishing to stay-in-style while in the heart of the beautiful Shropshire hills. Nestled betwen England and Wales there is plenty for guests to see, do and explore in the area, with mid Wales, Snowdonia and the coast in easy reaching distance, while its position between Welshpool and Shrewsbury means that shops, restaurants an damenities are just a short car journey away.

The home is composed of Victorian Rectory-style architecture and dates back to 1840, having been recently refurbished, today Cedar Lodge seamlessly combines it's original charm with updated interiors and contemporary furnishings. With views across the valley borders to Long Mountain, this south-facing home basks in sunlight in the spring and summer months, and offers a warm and cosy abode in the winter months. Comfortably sleeping up to nineteen guests it makes the perfect home away from home for families or a group of friends who wish to explore the truly wonderful region of Shropshire.

On the ground floor is the main entertaining space which comprises of a fabulous open-plan kitchen and dining area where guests can enjoy truly wonderful garden views, a cosy living room with fireplace as well as a cinema room with comfy corner sofa and large flat screen TV. Upstairs on the first floor are three of the bedrooms, two family rooms, one with a king-size bed, additional sofa bed and private bathroom and one with two king-size beds and an en-suite shower room. The final room on this floor is another king-size room with en-suite shower room. The remaining bedrooms are spread over the loft area and the second floor, attic level. On the second floor is a double bedroom and a single room which share the use of a family bathroom, while the loft is home to a double room with en-suite shower room.

Cedar Lodge offers a bend of independence and privacy along with hotel-grade amenities and convenience; the hosts remain a discreet on-site presence to offer an array of services, such as prepared meals, local area advise, passes for days out and much more, whilst guests can also self-cater and holiday independently. This magnificent home is a stylish and elegant abode that is nonetheless home-like - beautiful period architecture with enchanting gardens creates a secluded haven of style and comfort.

The outside space is truly wonderful, there is circa a thousand acres of land, from the elegant and manicured layers of sleek Italian-style gardens complete with fountains and trellis covered arbours to enchanting woodlands and views across the hills. The children are bound to have fun playing games on the large lawns or enjoying competitive games of tennis on the private court. On a warm Summer's evening the whole gang can gather together and enjoy a yummy barbecue al fresco on the terrace. There is no better way to end a busy day spent exploring the surrounding countryside than in the hot tub with a glass of bubbles!

  • Cedar Lodge is ideally located

    on 31/07/2022

    Cedar Lodge is ideally located.
    A quiet spot but a 15-minute walk to the beach (or the pub). The house was spotlessly clean, well appointed throughout. The living areas are airy with plenty of space. The view from the lounge is amazing. Very comfortable furnishings, big comfy beds too. We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Cedar Lodge.

  • Lovely

    on 20/08/2020

    Lovely spacious property, very well appointed, lots of interesting artefacts and pictures, beautiful gardens - a photographer's paradise with the beautiful flowers and trees with plenty of areas to get away and be quiet or sunbathe, far reaching views and perfect weather! The hot tub and tennis court were a big hit with all the family and everyone enjoyed the cycling opportunities of the area. We loved the big table in the conservatory that easily seated the 15 of us for evening meals.

  • Beautiful

    on 07/01/2020

    Beautiful house, well equipped, great facilities, friendly helpful owners!

  • Mikes birthday weekend!

    Created on 10/01/2019

    Fabulous idea to hire the whole house for 14 of us to celebrate a 60th! Gorgeous house with dining conservatory. Hot tub we used despite the snow and drizzle but there wasn't anywhere, that we could see, to hang towels or robes. Chef came in to cook a fantastic meal, however we had problems with the cooker cutting out! The chef managed fantastically though and made good! All in all a beautifulhome in a beautiful setting, thoroughly enjoyed by all!

  • Gorgeous place

    Created on 08/11/2018

    The house and gardens are absolutely incredible - I wish I could live here all the time!It's the perfect place for large groups to stay, with beautifully decorated bedrooms, a dreamy kitchen/diner, and wonderful gardens with tennis courts, bbq, ping pong, a hot tub, and fabulous views of the countryside all around.
