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.

Lovely holiday, great place would stay here again.
Date of stay: 1st June 2018
Staff were so helpful and greeted us with a very genorous welcome pack, which was a bonus. The lodge was immaculate and had everything we needed. The hottub was cleaned every day and was very relaxing, as it was in a private location. All the holiday owners were friendly too. We had plenty of laughs on this holiday and would definitely visit here again in the near future. I would recommend this lodge and Ashlea pools to anyone who wanted peace and picturesque landscapes

Great mid week break with our two dogs. Very quiet location, very clean, really great fishing. Very clean accommodation with everything you need, including a hot tub!
We had a fantastic mid week away with our 3 small children (aged 7,4 and 2) The lodge itâ€™s self was fantastic lots of space and a very well stocked kitchen. We all enjoyed the site we used the play area and went fishing and enjoyed local walks. We hired a bike for our 7 year old and our younger 2 had taken scooters.
The shop was well stocked and the staff were very helpful we left a childâ€™s blanket behind and Ashley pools halpkey posted it back to us! All in all it was a lovely stay and we hope to visit again
If you want a nice relaxing break then this has to be on your list.
All the staff were great and the Welcome Basket was a great surprise.
On site there was a small shop which had the essentials you would need.
So to sum up will definitely visit again at some point.
Lovely relaxing time
Peaceful break, beautiful settings and wonderful staff
Lovely holiday, very helpful and pleasant stay and beautiful location
The perfect break away. So clean and staff were so friendly. Thank you for everything
