“Best British countryside experience”
Reviewed September 14, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We have spent 5 wonderful days with friends and family in this amazing lodge. The rooms (apartemements) were tastefully converted from a stable by the owners who happen to be professional interior designers.
Well equipped kitchen, spatious rooms and open spaces and unparalelled hospitality by the owners.
Less than an hour driving from British Midland Airport, and 2 mins from Stafford. From stafford there is a comfortable 1 hour 20 mins train service to London.
If you wish to spend relaxing, charming days in the British Midland, go for this place, you won't regret.

“Diamond Lodge lives up to it's name !”
Reviewed September 14, 2016 for a stay in November 2015

This is our second stay at the fantastic lodges, but in a different lodge.. We arrived at the diamond lodge and it was very comfortable and tidy with an amazing view of the courtyard. Anna was very friendly as usual and helped us with any small problems such as a light bulb going etc ;) Highly recommended.

“Such beautiful accommodation”
Reviewed September 14, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I found this accommodation about a year before my wedding date, and I knew it would be a perfect location for my family to stay in for the wedding weekend. Anna and her husband were so helpful, right from the first phone call. They allowed me to come and visit the property, answered any questions I had and had a really friendly and relaxed attitude, which massively helps when you're planning a wedding.

The stables themselves are beautiful, we hired out all 4 of their properties and each has been designed to a high spec, with all the homely comforts you could wish for and all our family were impressed. We had the freedom to use the property as we saw fit, our photographers and makeup artists were there on the wedding morning and family came to drop in before the ceremony at Sandon Hall, without any issue, so again thank you for that.

“Stylish, comfortable and spacious converted stables moments from a first class riding establishment.”
Reviewed September 2, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Being the lucky winners of a week's equestrian traing at Ingestre our team was welcomed with open arms by the fabulous hosts Aaron and Anna Chetwynd. Travelling with four teenagers in tow can be a challenge but suffice to say staying in the newly renovated Chetwynd Lodge made for a seamless experience. The open plan downstairs living room and well equipped kitchen was great for team breakfasts, lunch on the go and cosy card nights in with a handy docking station and wi fi to cater for all their entertainment needs. Meanwhile, the mezzanine double bedroom with ensuite upstairs gave the adults a little welcome retreat. Being so close to the stables meant the riding sessions were easily accommodated and being a busy working stable there was always something going on to keep our horse lovers amused. Nothing was ever too much trouble for the staff of this horse lovers paradise and we hope to be back next year!

“What a great week at Chetwynd Lodge”
Reviewed September 2, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My wife, myself and 4 teenagers were lucky enough to stay at Ingestre Lodge for the second time in 3 years. We had travelled from our home in Hong Kong and again Anna and Aaron were there to greet us and show s around our accommodation for the week - Chetwynd Lodge. Everything at Ingestre Lodge is first class or A* if you are studying. The lodge itself had everything you needed for a week with teenagers. The upstairs bedroom gave us a bit of space but it was the downstairs living area that really set this lodge apart. The kitchen has everything you need and is very well appointed. Back to Anna and Aaron - what great hosts they are. Nothing at all is a problem for them and they both go out of their way to help. Hopefully we will visit them again next year.

“Celebration”
Reviewed August 23, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a family and friends birthday celebration...therefore took over the lodge. As part of the festivities (50th Birthday Party) took in the V Festival, the weekend was an extravaganza of fun.

Ingestre was a lovely place with super facilities...beautifully designed, spacious and very comfortable. A modern Countryside twist felt right...both owners are Architects and you could tell they captured the essence of country life for townies.
