My wife and I stayed in one of the four pods and had a wonderful weekend. The River Severn is a field or two away, Wales most beautiful (1500ft) waterfall is a 30 minute drive away and Shrewsbury is a 15 minute drive away.

From the pod you have a lovely view of the rolling Shropshire countryside and holls.

The value for money is phenomenol and the experience is one we wish to do again soon. Only next time more than two nights.

One small comment here for the owners. Would you please consider removing the goal post and footballs. Our POD and more importaly our car was hit on numberous occasions by footballs. With a little more peace and quiet this weekend would have been absolutely perfect.

Room Tip: No tips required as the site is perfect in every way

Just got back from a night away at the Big Bear Lodge. Everything from the warm welcome, to the rooms and breakfast was faultless! Nothing was too much trouble. This is an outstanding lodge/b&b and I will be returning :)

Thanks again

Sam

We have just enjoyed a relaxing two night break at The Big Bear Lodge in Melverley run by Rachel & Mark. We booked originally due to the airing on the Channel 4 show Four in a Bed but nothing prepares you for the beautiful setting that this place sits in. Views to die for from every window and there is a lovely sun veranda to sit on and just chill. Full use of the facilities in the kitchen really makes life easy as you can chill your drinks in the fridge and make your way out onto the verandah to relax.
We were treated to breakfast cooked by Mark one morning and Catherine on the second morning both equals in the kitchen (Mum & Son) & all the while you are entertained by Rachel who is one of the most genuine hosts we have ever come across.
The bedrooms have lovely comfortable beds, fabulous bedding and there is a wet room to die for. Would highly recommend this place to anybody.

Room Tip: We were in Whistler which is decorated in lovely light colours and is at the back of the Lodge with gorgeous views across the fields to the hills beyond.
