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.

Very clean and tidy x
Absolutely love Ashlea Pool Lodges. The booking process is simple and the check in is quick. The staff member that checked me in was fantastic and provided me with a welcome basket containing tea, coffee, sugar, milk, butter, water, crisps and sweets! This is my second time that I have stayed at Ashlea Pools and the lodges are stunning, spacious and luxurious! Love the hot tub!!
Will definitely come back again
Had a fab time , there were dog biscuits in the clothes drawer and made me wonder how clean it was cleaned before we arrived ! The rest of the cabin seemed fine though.

The lodge was looking a little tired and there were issues with the heating. It was comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need.

Had a lovely Christmas break, staff were very attentive and the welcome basket was fab. Kitchen really well equipped and cabin was beautiful. Had a few hot tub issues which were immediately sorted. Lovely peaceful location.
Great lodge, great location, friendly and helpful staff. Sunken hot tub was amazing. Would definitely go back.
Lovely time spent there - as always
Gorgeous cabins. Would definitely recommend and I can't wait to return
We had a lovely stay but felt the lodge was better suited to 2 adults and 2 children.
Really enjoyed out stay here. Lodges where brilliant and also colorfully decorated with it being Christmas time. Staff where really helpful and pulled us out of the snow on the day of coming home. Would definitely come here again.
The lodge was great but too expensive. No wifi or tv package.
The perfect setting if you want to get away from everything and relax. Staff are friendly and helpful with great local knowledge. We couldnâ€™t get Wifi but that wasnâ€™t a problem as it was a nice break from social media. The lodge was beautifully presented and the kitchen well equipped and the hot tub lovely and warm on arrival. The welcome pack had freshly baked bread, tea, coffee, sugar, milk and a bag a sweets which the kids enjoyed. Thank you for a wonderful weekend break. We will be booking again.
