Larches Lodge is an authentic Norwegian log cabin in the owners garden beneath a canopy of larch trees. Admire the outstanding views over the picturesque town of Church Stretton - often referred to as “Little Switzerland”, unwind in your Jacuzzi spa, or just sit back and relax with an evening drink on the elevated decking, warmed by the Burda electric heater. Larches Lodge is accessed from a dedicated parking area by a gravel path (approx 40m long) located along the lower level of the owners’ secluded, tiered garden. It’s a unique, magical space and yet only a short walk into Church Stretton centre with its eateries and bars, independent specialist shops and attractions. After a day’s activities maybe walking in the hills or hiring an electric bike, retreat into your personal haven and relax. In more detail this self-catering studio accommodation is a comfortable 325ft² (30m²) and is furnished to a high standard including :- • Private decked balcony along one side of the chalet with table and chairs, mood LED lights and electric heater - set within a small copse of larch trees overlooking Church Stretton • Jacuzzi hot tub with jets and LED lights plus two luxury cotton bathrobes • Traditional wooden log chalet interior with scatter rugs and open plan bedroom, sitting, dining and kitchen areas • Luxurious Superking (6ft wide) bed, wardrobe, drawers and under-bed pull out storage. Bed linen provided and fitted prior to your arrival. • 'The Hobbit' wood burner from Salamander Stoves provides real fire ambience for those cosy winter evenings. Kindling, logs and firelighters included. • Sitting area has a large leather sofa, 40” 4k TV with YouView box (offering streaming services and Netflix if you have an account). DVD player and DAB radio/BT speaker. • Dining area with oak table and chairs for two people • Fully equipped kitchen including a multi-function fan oven, microwave, two ring ceramic electric hob, extractor fan and numerous utensils • Bathroom with large electric shower cubicle (1200 x 800) and toilet, basin and fan heater • Numerous lighting options including faux antler ceiling pendant with LED candles, wall LED candle lights, bedside lamps and kitchen LED spotlights • Wi-Fi internet access at fibre broadband speed • 3kW electric radiator set to a comfortable 20ºC (6h45-9h15, 16h30-22h30) and 17.5ºC other times. There is also a night storage heater which can be opened for extra heat. Additional booster fan heater. • Price includes typical electricity usage (please note the outdoor electric patio heater requires a £1 or 20p coin) • Check-in from 3pm, check-out by 10.30am - please enquire for earlier or later times Church Stretton town centre is an easy stroll away offering specialist shops, a good-sized Co-op supermarket, cafes, restaurants, a wine bar, pubs, an antiques market, golf course and railway station. The train takes you to the centre of medieval Shrewsbury or the historic market town of Ludlow in approximately 15 minutes and is on the mainline from Cardiff to Manchester. Also within easy reach are notable sights such as the museums of Ironbridge, Stokesay Castle, and day trips to the Welsh coast, Chester and Snowdonia are also very feasible. Please Note: Although the chalet is adjacent to Mark & Sara’s house the entrance is on the furthest side (see TripAdvisor reviews) and a wall & sail shades ensure the lodge is completely private. A 40m gravel path leads to the chalet and is shared with Oaks Lodge guests. The 50m private drive from Watling Street is quite steep which less mobile individuals may find a little challenging. Sorry but No Dogs due to our lovely cats owning the garden. In consideration of neighbours there should be no outdoor music at any time and we kindly request that all noise is curtailed after 9.30pm at the latest (10pm Fri/Sat).More
