“A sensational getaway”
Reviewed 29 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Where to start…the place is just amazing, simple as that. We recently spent a weekend away there and it was difficult to make ourselves leave – it is just so easy to fall in love with it. The building itself is beautiful – it used to be old stables that were converted into what we now have as these lodges, designed personally by Aaron and Anna, the hospitable couple that run it. You can see the brilliance that went into creating this accommodation, there was obviously a lot of effort and passion involved, including the personal touches that are scattered around, numerous original features that have been left in place and together they make this fascinating living space that is pure enjoyment for anyone that stays there. You also have the unique and beautiful furniture, some of which has featured in classic films (but we will let the owners tell you more about that…)

We stayed in Chetwynd, a huge self-contained living space with 4 bedrooms, including the master on the first floor. It was great for social occasions with its spacious living room/kitchen area. We were also shown around the smaller Diamond Lodge next door – a cosy space perfect for a couple’s romantic getaway and somewhere we would love to try next time because without a doubt we will be back!

“A great place to stay!”
Reviewed 30 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Booked one of the lodges for my wife's 30th b'day dinner party. Everyone in our group (8 in total) loved the place; beautiful décor throughout & with all mod cons helped everything go off without a hitch. Anna & Aaron were very welcoming, beforehand & during the stay (Thank you again!). Would definitely recommend the lodges as a great place to stay / meet & catch up with friends, special occasion or otherwise!

“Real english contryside. A nique Experience”
Reviewed 27 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We had the most amazing 50'th birhtday celebration at the Ingestre Lodges, with friends and kids.

The arquitecturally amazing remodeled stables with very exclusive furnishings as well as the location, make it a fantastic place to celebrate, or just for a get away with family and friends.

A very good local farmstore is located nearby, The Ingestre Riding School shares the new stable site, and the countryside is very nice to explore.

It has been our second visit to Ingestre Lodges, a unique experience.
We will definitly return again.

Thank you so much Anna and Aaron.

“Beautiful accommodation, definitely coming back!”
Reviewed 1 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

This was an amazing place to stay, it has everything that you could want. The interior was spectacular, all the rooms were beautiful. The spacious living area was perfect for a group of friends wanting to socialise and enjoy a couple of days away from their busy lives.

The owners were extremely helpful and went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. Sharing with us their knowledge of the local areas and gave us a lot of great suggestions of things to do close by.

I would definitely recommend this place to stay.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 30 December 2013 for a stay in November 2012

An absolutely stunning place to stay, with wonderful hosts Anna and Aaron Chetwynd who did everything they could to make us comfortable. We stayed in the romantic one bed Diamond Lodge for a couple of nights. This is by far my favourite place to stay in the countryside. I cannot recommend it enough.

“Amazing, I will be staying here again without a doubt.”
Reviewed 19 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Myself and 8 of my friends stayed here for a weekend as we where going to Alton Tower's, Ingestre Lodges is a lovely place to stay, the building itself is stunning and the lodge is so homely and warm with beautiful furnishings. Aaron and Anna are the lovely owners of the lodges and they were so helpful to everything we asked, they were polite and very friendly they made us all feel extremely welcome. I do not normally write reviews but I wanted to share my experience of Ingestre Lodges.I would recommend staying here as a couple or as a group I plan on staying here again for sure.
