Shepherds Lodge is in a beautiful countryside location and is ideal for exploring the county of Shropshire.

Dating back to the 1600’s, originally a dairy farm and now a beef, cattle, and sheep enterprise, this setting makes the ideal location for a holiday. This restful shepherds hut retreat has its own private bathroom facilities and is located in the owner’s breathtaking valley gardens. It is beautifully furnished and nestles at the foot of the glorious, majestic Wrekin Hill. In an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Morrells Wood Farm is ’that perfect get away!’ Indeed, many regard the views from this vale of tranquillity as ’little Switzerland’, and as its name sake, the panoramic scenery is stunning. The central location makes it the perfect base if a day or two exploring (or longer) is on the agenda. If not, then simply enjoy Mother Nature at its best whatever the season. Shropshire is a beautiful county, which is becoming more and more popular with tourists, with towns like Much Wenlock, Shrewsbury, Bridgnorth and Ludlow, which are all easy to get to from Morrells Wood Farm. The relaxed pace of countryside life is complemented by a huge amount to see and do. You can enjoy Ironbridge Gorge and its museums or a trip to Wroxeter Roman city and the nearby vineyard. There are 4 National Trust properties within an hour’s drive, the closest being Attingham Park, then Powys Castle, Chirk and Dudmaston are slightly further afield but make for a great day out exploring the Welsh Borders. Ludlow Castle, food centre and racecourse, the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre and Acton Scott working farm are all popular tourist attractions. The Glider Centre on the top of the Longmynd and Cardingmill valley are not to be missed, and for the more adventurous there are nearby outdoor attractions from quad trekking, mountain boarding, zip wire, high ropes, clay pigeon shoots and archery. Shop 3 miles, restaurant and pub 1¼ miles.

    We were blown away by the loveliness of the Lodge, it is so comfortable and welcoming. Our hosts greeted us and then let us do our own things. A perfect "get away" retreat.

    Once settled in,nice and comfortable. Shame that there was no wardrobe. Television picture kept braking up, poor signal. For health and safety the steps from the lodge all blended in and was difficult to see the edge. It needs white paint line to show where the edge is. Overall very good.

    A lovely welcome on arrival & freshly baked rock buns went down very well with our first cuppa. The lodge is comfortable and well equipped, with comfy bed & lovely bedding & towels. Clean & well equipped kitchen with everything you need. Lovely views from the lodge & a private garden. The area is well worth visiting, several National Trust properties, Shrewsbury & many more. We would visit this area again & stay at the lodge.
