    "Lovely hosts. Beautiful lodge. Definitely would return."
    K – 23 Oct 2018
    "This place is so beautiful! Loved our weekend stay. Lodge is immaculate and really cosy and beautiful view outside where private hot tub is situated. Ruth and her partner are so welcoming on arrival. Would highly recommend and defiantly return! Thank you"
    Melonie – 21 Oct 2018
    "We have just returned from a lovely week in the lodge, Ruth's Retreat. The weather was not particularly good but there is plenty to do in the area and we managed to use the hot tub most days. The quality of the lodge is high - well equipped, very clean and the sofas/beds are all of a good quality - we were very comfortable. The stars of the show are definitely the owners, Ruth and Dean, who go out of their way to make sure you feel welcome and are happy with your stay. The property is down some very narrow lanes and you need a car to get to local pubs/shops but the upside is lovely views of the countryside from the hot tub. We ate at 3 local pubs - all recommended by Ruth and good value/quality food. Highlight for us was the lunch at the Fish House in Ludlow - excellent."
    Grahame – 22 Sep 2018
    "Great place to stay if you want somewhere rural. Ruth is very friendly and helpful."
    Thomas – 10 Sep 2018
    "We were very impressed by the lodge - warm, comfortable and spacious. The owner was very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay - dealing with the few queries we had very promptly and offering useful advice and practical help. We enjoyed meeting the animals on the property. We would certainly confidently recommend this property to friends."
    Kerry – 25 Aug 2018
    "Ruth's Retreat is an absolutely amazing lodge to stay in. Ruth is a fantastic host and there if needed. The setting is just perfect for those who want to rewind and the hot tub is a true added bonus for pure relaxation, day or night. The lodge is immaculate. The beds are comfortable and we slept better than we have in a long time. There are some fascinating places to visit nearby, eg Shrewsbury prison tour, Severn Valley Railway and Ludlow. Really can't fault anything about the lodge or setting. We would love to return in the future."

    "Excellent 7 nights spent there, beautiful place with great views. Huge hot tub to unwind in of an evening with no distractions at all."
    Nathan – 29 Jul 2018
    "It was amazing we stayed for the week loved every minute Ruth and dean look after you so well. On our last evening is and the other guesses were invited to have a small meal with Ruth in her garden it was a lovely end to an amazing holiday. We will definitely be back."
    Sunjiv – 15 Jul 2018
    "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."
