Exclusive luxury property with gated entrance set in three acres with hot tub, tennis courts and play facilities. Perfect to relax, experience the culture or be active in Shropshire and its borders.

Whether it's a family celebration, a gathering of friends or a bit of both, this four-bedroom lodge is a great choice, set on a large site with facilities on hand and your own private hot tub on the terrace to help you really relax into the holiday.

The lodge has a corner plot, giving plenty of privacy, and it has been designed with a great blend of function and luxury. A utility room as you enter is ideal for depositing outdoor clothes and bags, with a washer/dryer for when things get really muddy. The large open-plan living space offers plenty of nooks for the whole family, with a lounge area, dining table for eight, plus breakfast bar and modern kitchen with some top features like a coffee machine, and a Quooker tap for instant boiling water. When the weather is good, open up the French doors and the entertaining space can extend to the wrap-around veranda with comfortable rattan chairs, as well as that luxurious hot tub. Bedrooms have a fresh, contemporary style with grey tones and plenty of storage space. One of the three king-size rooms has French doors leading out to the hot tub, and all enjoy an en-suite bathroom. The fourth bedroom is a versatile room which can be arranged as a twin or a super king-size – it also has Jack and Jill access to the main bathroom.

It's a few minutes from the house to the on-site tennis courts and children's playground, as well as some lovely walks in the grounds. For longer strolls there are lots of local footpaths and cycle routes, or head to Offa's Dyke Trail, 7 miles away, and spend some time walking the fascinating 8th-century hand-dug ditch on the English/Welsh border, through rolling hills and past ancient churches and historic towns. The charming market town of Oswestry is 8 miles away, where the kids will enjoy following the town trail, or visiting the well-preserved hill-top Iron-Age fort, and everyone will love a horse-drawn canal trip and a well-earned stop at one of the many tea shops or cafes. The British Ironwork Centre near Oswestry is also worth a visit, with amazing sculptures scattered over its 60 acres and buggies/bikes to hire to explore, as well as a good program of children's activities including workshops, trails and events. The more energetic might like to take on the Breidden Hills, 7 miles from the house and see Admiral Rodney's Pillar on the summit as well as some spectacular views.

Amazing place, beautiful surroundings and great company. The only thing I would change would have been the pillows in some of the bedrooms. The ones in the twin room were really hard but that is a personal preference. We really enjoyed our stay and will be coming back again.

Lovely property in a lovely setting. There were 8 of us. The four en suite bedrooms ideal. The properties look out onto a green area and otherwise surrounded by fields. The hot tub in the skylark retreat sat 5. The other properties had hot tubs that sat 8. The properties are built to park cars there. Most of us took the train and there was an issueRead more with taxi companies coming out to that location. Jeff and burgess taxis were the best when others refused and were really reasonable. Hide

Lovely, quiet location, the Skylark Retreat was everything we had hoped for. The layout is well done and roomy allowing you relax in comfort. The hot tub was great for all young and older. Full use was made of the tennis court and play area. Quality fittings throughout. Great venue to catch up with friends from further away.
