    Fantastic retreat. Ruth is a gem of a person and was warm and welcoming hostess from day one. We enjoyed having a chat with her everyday. My daughter enjoyed the lodge enough that she wanted to buy it as a holiday home. The hot tub is like the icing on the cake. Sophisticated equipment and even a smart tv which is quite unusual. Will definitely recommend family of three or a couple for a romantic retreat.

    Nice quiet rural retreat with excellent facilities and helpful friendly owner. Hot tub at the end of the day to watch the sunset adds to the holiday experience. Would definitely visit again if going back to the Shropshire area.

    Ruth's Retreat was a perfect get away for me and my two grown up children to have some catch up time. The added extras of wine, flowers, cereal and milk added to the homely atmosphere. The hot tub had fabulous views of the countryside and Ruth is a lovely host. Would thoroughly recommend.

    Amazing place. It has everything you could need to have a quiet, relaxing getaway. You couldnt ask for a better hostess. Ruth went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect. Beautiful views and a hot tub to die for. The lodge has a lovely walk in wet room and such a homely feel. We didnt want to leave. And will definitely be returning.
