‘Our second time staying at elm lodge and we were not disappointed. The lodge is in a very peaceful setting and was immaculately clean on arrival. We couldn’t fault anything and it’s clear the owners go to a lot of effort to make your stay enjoyable as possible. If your after a peaceful break this is the place for you. We will be back.   Actionmanarmy – Tripadvisor November 2021

‘Lovely place to stay for a quiet weekend. The views were just stunning and the log cabin itself was really beautiful! Would highly recommend.     Ceri – AirBnB November 2021

‘We stayed at Elm Lodge with hosts Gwyneth and Linda who now own it. We absolutely loved our time there and will definitely be back as well as recommending it to friends and family. The lodge was cleaned to a very high standard and we felt very safe in a post COVID time. Communication with Gwyneth and Linda was fast and efficient. We were given all the information we needed prior to our visit and there is lots of helpful information at the lodge itself. It’s a lovely lodge, well decorated and in a wonderful countryside location. It’s the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle. There are about 10 lodges in Billingsley Park Lodges so you are not completely alone. We ordered a Chinese takeaway from a menu already at the lodge and had no trouble getting it delivered. We had everything we needed. And we absolutely loved the hot tub, we were in it everyday. We will definitely be back!     Amy  – AirBnB November 2021

Excellent stay in Elm Lodge again. Stayed at this “park” (I’m not sure what else to call it – it’s so peaceful) three times now and will be back again. Would highly recommend! Also a bottle of milk was left on arrival which was a nice touch (as well as the cava!)     Lee – AirBnB October 2021

“Fantastic views from a wonderful lodge.  Situated in Billingsley, not too far from Bridge North centre it a home away from home.  Tastefully kitted out with all you need to relax and unwind.  Elm Lodge is a true little gem that you will never forget. It is well equipped and maintained and unbelievably clean. If its peace and quiet you are after then here is certainly where you will find it.  We cannot wait to go back!     Sean H – Google maps October 2021

“Really enjoyable long weekend away.  My Wife and I booked Elm Lodge for a weekend away from the kids (first time away for 18 months), and we certainly picked the right place. Early morning coffee on the terrace with no noise other than the birds was pretty magical – but to see the sun rise at the same time was breath-taking.  The hot tub on the terrace was also well used… overlooking the trees on one side and the fields on the other. We had a lovely welcome gift and Gwyneth and Linda took care of every little detail in the lodge. Cleanliness was 10/10. Overall, this place really is peaceful, no roads, spacious, you can’t ask for more. As a keen astronomer I also enjoyed some clear nights and no light pollution     Craig – AirBnB September 2021

Gwyneth and Linda had just taken over the lodge. Communication was excellent. We had booked for our wedding anniversary and there was a bottle of bubbly and chocolate waiting for our arrival with a note. The lodge is beautiful, finished to a very high standard. Situated in the peace and quiet, things were close enough but far enough away as this retreat from busy life was perfect. We have already said we will be back again and cannot wait to do so”.    Mark – AirBnB September 2021

Beautiful lodge in a beautiful location. It had everything you needed and we hardly ever left the lodge as it was so stunning! We will definitely be back soon.     Chlo – AirBnB September 2021

We had a fantastic stay at elm lodge. Lovely peaceful location which was ideal for exploring.  Gwyneth and Linda made the cabin very homely and the bottle of Cava on arrival was appreciated after a long drive.  Bridgnorth is about 10 minutes drive away and some of the local takeaways do delivery which was ideal on our first night.  During our stay the oven stopped working but it was fixed the same day which was brilliant service.  There is nothing bad to say about the lodge the only thing I could say is the hot tub could do with upgrading but that’s me being picky.  We enjoyed our stay that much we have booked to return.  Highly recommend and definitely worth a visit.   Actionman 82 – Tripadvisor July 2021

Just got back from a long weekend away (Fri-Mon) and have had the most amazing time.  Elm lodge is amazing, it is fully equipped to the highest standards and has everything you need for a self catering break, we even cooked a sunday dinner. On arrival Gwyneth and Linda had left us a bottle of cava which we enjoyed in the hot tub later on that evening.  The surroundings are lovely and so peaceful.  Would highly recommend and will definately be returning time and time again.     Jodi – Tripadvisor July 2021

I really enjoyed my stay at Elm Lodge. Looking forward to going back soon!     John S – Google maps July 2021

Amazing lodge, amazing views and amazing Hot tub – this place was just gorgeous and exceeded all of our expectations. A lovely welcome with a ‘Thank you to the NHS’ sign with chocolates and Prosecco was a lovely touch too – I can’t reccomend this place enough! Thank you x      Rebecca – AirBnb June 2021

Great place to get away for a few days.     Gary – AirBnb May 2021

Lovely place had an amazing staycation! Thanks again, highly recommended!    Natasha AirBnb May 2021

“This is still one of our favourite bolt holes. Owing to Covid and our need to isloate we have been waiting for this little break for a long time (we originally booked for Easter 2020 but had to postpone our visit a couple of times). During our wait Phil and Sue the original owners have sold the lodge. However, the new owners, Gwyneth and Linda seem to be carrying on with the excellent work.  The lodge of arrival was very clean and tidy and equipped with everything you need for your stay, despite some items having to be removed owing to Covid restrictions.  The hot tub is maintained daily and is a wonderful way to relax at the end of the day, especially with a glass of complimentary bubbly.  The location of the lodge is on a small site situated far enough from any main road to ensure that the only noise is from the birds in the wooded area below the lodge.  It’s located halfway between Bridgnorth and Bewdley giving access to a number of reasonable eating places and other places of interest such as West Midlands Safari Park and Sevrn Valley Railway.  All in all this is a comfortable well equipped lodge in a fantastic area either for family days out or just the relaxing peace and quiet in a well maintained lodge with hot tub. As I said this is one of our favourite bolt holes, in fact we are already booked in for a week in August. First class all round.     Norman – Tripadvisor  May 2021        

Amazing log cabin in a beautiful setting! We will definitely be back 🙂     Vicki – AirBnB April 2021                                 “

Even better than the pictures absolutely loved it!!”     Kristian – AirBnB  April 2021

“We stayed a long weekend in the lodge. Set 15 minutes south of Bridgnorth, it’s in a small park of around nine lodges. It is beautifully decorated inside with a large open plan kitchen area leading into the sofas and dining table. There were two good sized bedrooms, one double and one twin with a bathroom and a separate on-suite. We visited the Ship Inn in Highley (ten minutes away on the River Severn) and had a day in Ludlow too. There are many walks too as well as the towns of Bridgnorth and Bewdley too. Highly recommended and we would definitely stay again.”

Booked for the end of September for 3 nights and it was a really beautiful place to stay , It felt like home from the second we walked through the front door. Beautifully decorated with amazing views from every window, bird watching from the main room which My son really enjoyed. Beautifully cleaned and felt very spacious. Phil and Sue are really lovely and very helpful with any questions that we asked. Will definitely be looking to stay again and would recommend this place for anyone to stay Thank you Phil & Sue xXx Danielle”
Danielle J – Tripadvisor  October 2020

Phil and Sue’s place was warm, welcoming and exceptionally clean. It is roomy yet cozy at the same time. The place is modern with all amenities provided with the hot tub being a fabulous addition. It is surrounded by lovely country walks. Sitting in the hot tub in the evening listening to the owls in the nearby woods was just lovely. Phil and Sue were top hosts. They are friendly and quick to respond to messages. The pub they recommended nearby (The Ship) was superb for food and drink. I will not hesitate to return to their place and highly recommend.”
Jodi G – AirBnB  September 2020

Elm Lodge was absolutely fantastic. The lodge is tastefully decorated and you feel the warmth as soon as you enter. All amenities were of a very good standard. The hot tub was amazing, located on a large decking area. Having a glass of bubbly while watching the stars was so relaxing. The location was good, with local amenities being within easy driving distance. Loved staying here and will definitely book again.”

Louise T – Tripadvisor  September 2020

This place is absolutely perfect. From the moment we booked I knew I could contact Phil and Sue and they would respond almost straight away. On arriving at the lodge we were completely blown away. It is absolutely beautiful and so peaceful. I scored serious brownie points with the family. The rooms are so bright and everything is spotless. Each evening was topped off in the hot tub which was the highlight of the holiday for us all. I cannot recommend this place enough and will definitely be looking to come back.”
Lesley T – AirBnB  August 2020

“Great lodge set in beautiful surroundings, sitting in the hot tub looking at the forest and the birds was so relaxing! The lodge it’s self was everything we needed/wanted, nice open space and great for the family. We’d definitely stay again”
Alex C – AirBnB  August 2020

“We enjoyed a 3-night stay at Elm lodge at the beginning of August. The lodge sits in a secluded area with a handful of other lodges. The lodges are well spaced out with private parking and during our stay it was so peaceful even though it looked as if all of the lodges were at full capacity. Elm lodge is extremely spacious and would easily accommodate 4 people, the hosts were extremely helpful and left a bottle of fizz for us on our arrival, which was very much appreciated after a long drive. The accommodation was immaculate and toughly cleaned with all the mod cons you would want. It was lovely to wake up in the morning and watch the birds and the squirrels from my bed, whilst drinking a cup of coffee. The only recommendation that I gave to the hosts were that black out curtains would be a very good addition, as currently the curtains are very light and we were awake as soon as the sun came up but we had such a relaxing time that I feel this is only something that would improve the experience. The hot tub was lovely to use when we returned from a day of exploring. Bridgnorth, Bewdley and Ludlow are within a 30 mins drive and there are plenty of pubs to choose from that have very good Covid measures in place. I would recommendation Pheasant at Neenton as this is a lovely country pub that does exceptional food and the Feathers in Ludlow, which serves good pub food, very good Covid -19 measures in place and good service. Would definitely recommend Elm lodge if you want a lovely relaxing break in immaculate accommodation”
Philippa C – Tripadvisor  August 2020

“Just returned from a week at Elm lodge, Location is vary peaceful, the lodge is spotlessly clean and Phil & Sue are wonderful hosts. The hot tub is amazing and provides a wonderful place to sit and watch the Rabbits, Squirels & Deer in the field below the lodge. This is also a good location for star watching as there is no street lights nearby. The lodge is well equiped for a self catering week away with lots of good resteraunts a short drive away.”
Darren C – Google Maps  August 2020

“We’ve had a great girls’ weekend at the lodge. Philip and Sue are great hosts, the place looked great, was equipped with everything you might need and was absolutely spotless. The bottle of bubbly waiting for us on arrival was a lovely surprise. Thank you Philip and Sue!”

“Just got back from our third visit at the lodge, and yet again had a lovely time. Can’t find fault at all, always lovley and clean with everything you could need for a self catering break.

“Lovely week away at Elm lodge with my wife and daughter.

Paul T – AirBnB  July 2020

“My partner and I stayed here and it was such a lovely break. Phil and Sue were excellent hosts and provided everything we could have needed for our stay. The lodges are in a brilliant location – so peaceful and quiet but only a 10 minute drive from Bridgnorth which was absolutely beautiful and it had so much to do and see. I would definitely recommend staying at Ash & Elm Lodges and I’m sure we will be back in the future!”

And, the neighbors were super nice! If you’re looking for a place to relax and recharge, this is the best place!”

“This place is amazing! Just visit honestly, words do not do it justice. It’s a truly magical and wonderful place.

“Set in beautiful Shropshire countryside and away from traffic, Elm Lodge is perfect for relaxation and is so comfortable and clean. It was lovely to wake up to such a rural setting looking on to woodland and to the delight of birds feasting on the constant supply of nuts and seeds supplied by the owners. The property is near to Wyre Forest which has great walks and to the Severn Valley railway. So much to explore and discover including many historic Shropshire churches. After days out, it was wonderful to relax in the hot tub. This was indeed a bonus at the end of our day and to see the sunsets. The lodge is light and airy, spacious with everything we needed. Phil and Sue, the owners, had thought of everything and welcomed us with a bottle of wine and milk. At the end of an enjoyable week’s holiday, we left happy and contented and will definitely be returning.”
Margaret & Paul  October 2019 – Tripadvisor

“Elm Lodge is superb and kept on first class condition. Everything was completely spotless and everything worked. There was even milk tea coffee and sugar when we arrived. Phillip and Sue are very thoughtfull and very caring hosts. We will not hesitate to return very soon.”

Lovely outdoor decking to sit on with an amazing hot tub! Everything provided! Phil and Sue were very welcoming and received a lovely bottle of fizz on arrival! So peaceful to sit on the decking right through to the evening in the sun. Plenty of parking, easy to access and lots of information before arrival so we knew what we were doing. Definitely would book again!!”

“My wife and I spent a long weekend at Elm Lodge for a relaxing break away from the kids. In a word – stunning. The quality of the accommodation is outstanding, it is sparkling clean and the setting is beautiful and peaceful. Sitting in the hot tub and watching nature all around us was such a special experience. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a break in this lovely part of the country.”

“We had a lovely time at Elm Lodge. The lodge was very comfortable, spacious and extremely clean. There was everything you could think of in there, even products to use the dishwasher/washing machine if needed. There was a large amount of crockery and cooking utensils which was nice. On arrival we were welcomed by a nice bottle of bubbly on the table with a welcoming letter. Also had milk in the fridge for us which was a bonus too. The living area was nice and comfortable, the chairs were extra comfy and you just sunk right into them. The beds were very comfortable as well. There was plenty of space in the bedrooms for clothes etc. Bathroom was just as spacious and the showers were both nice and powerful. We had 1 small issue with bed linen when we arrived, but a quick phone call to Phil and he was round within about 10 minutes to sort us out. Was nice to have a little chat with him and a nice man he was too. Despite the weather not being great and our first time in the area we still had a great time and it didn’t stop us in our tracks, We visited Warwick Castle, RAF Cosford, Wightwick Manor, Blist’s Hill, West Midlands Safari Park all within a short drive from the Lodge. The added board games/jigsaw puzzles and books were a lovely touch. And with the weather not being on our side, it was nice to have those things to do of an evening in there. We did manage to get in the hot tub which was so relaxing. Temperature was just right and could have stayed in there for ages as it was so peaceful. We woke up every morning to the birds and squirrels at the feeding station which was lovely. The feeders were filled up during our stay which was good as the food didn’t seem to last too long for the hungry little visitors. We had a little chat with Phil and Sue when were leaving the lodge and what lovely, friendly people they are. We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn’t hesitate to come back to Elm lodge if we wanted to stay in the area again. Would recommend this property to others.”
