An amazing time was had by all at this fantastic lodge...in the middle of know where.
Fully equipped. Barbra is the perfect host, nothing is too much trouble,and she bakes you a cake .
The hot tub was brilliant fun too .
We were a family of six over three generations holidaying but found that the amenities at the lodge suited us all well especially the hot tub! It was well signposted with clear instructions to get to it. We found the lodge to be clean, tidy and well equipped and the welcoming cake was much appreciated. Our hosts welcomed us but did not interfere in any way during the week. We would love to go back again.
Our host Barbara was wonderful! She was so welcoming and made sure our stay was easy and as relaxed as it could be. She had provided us with plenty of information on what to do in the area and good places to eat (this did not disappoint).
The lodge itself is located in a lovely part of Shropshire with lots of walks nearby. Although it was only a five minute drive to Ellesmere, our group thoroughly enjoyed the serenity of the location with most evenings spent in the hot tub. We loved the amount the lodge had to offer, catering to everyone's needs. The table tennis was a big hit with our mini tournaments and the field was great for rounders. We had a lovely barbecue outside on the bench, the lodge really had everything we wanted and so much more!
The lodge was immaculate and all the bedrooms were a great size. The kitchen was well equipped, making it easy to cook for all seven of us.
We all had an amazing week with so many laughs, thank you so much Barbara for being the perfect host and of course the cake you made was delicious.
We're looking forward to our next visit and the cakes!
We were a party of 7 and had a fabulous week at Hampton Lodge. Ideal in so many ways. Lovely quiet, safe setting. Our Grandchildren aged 8,7 & 5 could run around outside safely and entertain themselves. The hot tub was amazing and was well used by us all. Lodge well equipped in every department from the kitchen equipment, outside games, and towels for the hot tub. The Children enjoyed reading the books before bedtime. There was no shaver point in the lodge, but when we spoke to Barbara she immediately resolved it by leaving us a two pin plug. We enjoyed some wonderful days out including, Park Hall Farm, Attingham Park (National Trust), Chester Zoo, The Follies and the final day was canal boat hire which was our favourite day. The only downside was the water pressure. Only one water source at a time so be warned if somebody is in the shower don't flush the toilet or use dishwasher, run a tap or anything. Once you know about it you can work around it. All in all a great memorable week. Would we return? Yes we would! Its just a lovely place to come and spend a week to get away. Oh and mustn't forget the wonderful welcome cake - Well done Barbara - fantastic all round - Thank you.
Having just spent a very relaxing weekend in this lovely cottage I would recommend it to anyone. The setting is idyllic, surrounded by fields, woodland and sheep.
The accommodation itself has everything one could wish for and is absolutely immaculate inside and out.
All rooms are a good size, 3 bathrooms certainly helps for larger parties and the hot tub and outside veranda are among the nicest I have seen at any cottages I have stayed at.
The owners are friendly and welcoming with nothing being too much trouble and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage for anyone looking for a true 'get away from it all' break. Should you wish to explore locally however all amenities are less than 20 mins away.
Hampton Lodge was the perfect place for our group of five seniors.The accommodation was excellent and we received a very warm welcome from Barbara, (the owner). The lodge proved the ideal position from which to explore. We enjoyed visits to a number of National Trust properties including, Chirk Castle and the fascinating Erddig Hall and Gardens. Llangollen and the horse drawn barge trip was also favourites.
If you want to eat out in the evenings, unfortunately you will need to take the car. However the nearest local pub,The Sun Inn at Welshampton proved to be perfect for us with a good variety of excellent meals.
Back to the Lodge.The facilities were first class and the hot tub a great addition. One point visitors might wish to be aware of is that the upstairs bedroom is accessed by a rather steep wooden staircase, which may be an issue for the "not so fit" guest.
We would heartily recommend Hampton Lodge to anyone looking for a quiet rural base, from which to explore Shropshire and surrounding area
An amazing venue in such a beautiful and isolated environment.
Early communication from the hosts ensured we were fully prepared with details and directions ahead of our stay.
The small touches really added value to the stay, thoughtful considerations to help start our holiday off as soon as we arrived. Milk for teas accompanied by some cake. Very thoughtful.
The accommodation was perfect for our needs and the hot tub was out of this world. Barbara was a great host and helped with all of our needs.
Would highly recommend this place and will be booking again.
