Ashlea Pools Lodges have a spectacular location in one of the most beautiful and peaceful parts of south Shropshire and holds the David Bellamy Gold Award for Conservation. The site itself is recommended to couples and families seeking rest and relaxation although outdoor activities are plentiful in the area.
Affording stunning views over the picturesque valleys and rolling hills, these lodges have an exclusive and tranquil feel. Locally the market towns of Ludlow, Church Stretton, Bishop's Castle and historic Shrewsbury are all within easy reach and offer many attractions. Popular day trips include Ironbridge Gorge and Blists Hill Open Air Museum, however many guests simply prefer to sit back and watch the wild birds and waterfowl on the lake.
There are two types of lodge to choose from at Ashlea Pools Lodges. The Mandarin Lodge sleeps 4 and is luxurious and spacious. The Kingfisher Lodge Plus can sleep up to 6 and has two bedrooms and a sofa bed in the lounge. The Kingfisher also has a private outdoor hot tub.

Best short break I have had without going abroad and loved the luxury accommodation. It was exactly what we had hoped and planned for and didn't need to go off the site for anything, everything we needed we had from the shop from locally sourced fresh meat and veg to children's activity toys , hot tub was so amazing we just wanted to make the most of it , we all had a lovely peaceful time x

Stayed in Kingfisher VIP (17). Fantastic stay. Staff so helpful and friendly. The best welcome basket ever. Gorgeous hot tub and friendly neighbours. Great base for days out in Shropshire and for popping into Wales. Lovely clean lodge. Look forward to staying again.

Fab fab fab !! Thank you x
Really clean, hot tub cleaned every few days, BBQs allowed and very cosy inside. Good quality television with lots of channels so not limited. Also radios channels on the television. Good view and pkaying field and dog field. There is a small little shop on the site that sells a lot of useful items. Can also hire DVDs for rent at an affordable, reasonable price. Really enjoyed my time there with family, will definitely be coming back again in the future.
