A wonderful memorable and relaxing break of 7 days during April 2015. Stunning views with large car park. The quality of our rooms, fittings and beds was exceptional, together with wet rooms & waterfall showers. Breakfasts were generous and excellent, including vegetarian food. Rachael and Mark are wonderful hosts, warm, welcoming, helpful & flexible. Thank you for our after-breakfast chats... More

Rachel and Mark were the perfect hosts and made you feel the lodge was your own home. Had a lovely walk to a couple of local pubs on the afternoon and returned to the... More

Another great stay at Big Bear - now the place I stay when I am working in Shrewsbury. It really has got the wow the factor and is tremendous value for money. Beds so comfy and views magical. Peaceful location, plenty of parking, great lounge to chill out and a terrace ideal for checking out the stars. Just 20 mins... More

After seeing this place I was immediately intrigued! I'm now booking to go back after my stay in February. We booked a pod for my partners birthday and even he was pleased with it. Unfortunately we didn't get to see much of the owners but the contact we did have was pleasant. The pods can be used all year round... More

We booked a single night's stay at the Big Bear Lodge and stumbled onto a gem. We've never stayed in a place that's so unique. Run as a lodge similar to those in high-class skiing resorts, the lodge features small but beautifully presented rooms with a large shared lounge and kitchen area. This is really a special experience that encourages... More

This is like being round at their house. It's so friendly and relaxed that nothing is a problem. Awesome breakfast /dining area with an open fire. Snug and cosy room. Rainforest shower wetroom. Food was fresh and cooked well. I muttered to my partner that i wanted another coffee and our host was right there with it. Cute and rustic... More

Went away with my boyfriend and his family for a long weekend after his parents had gone for a weekend just the two of them. Had seen BBL on Four in a Bed and was amazed to find that that Rachael and Mark were even more lovelier in person! They welcomed us with such warmth and we felt straight at... More
