This luxury lodge situated two miles from the town and meres of Ellesmere sleeps eight people in three bedrooms.

Hampton Lodge is a superb single-storey lodge situated just two miles from the meres and town of Ellesmere in Shropshire. This lodge sleeps eight people in three bedrooms, consisting of two king-size doubles, including one with an en-suite shower and a zip/link twin, along with a shower room. The lodge also has an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with a sofa bed. Outside there's off road parking for three cars and a veranda with furniture, a barbecue and a hydrotherapy spa hot tub and there is also use of an outdoor badminton court and table tennis table. Hampton Lodge is a wonderful property with plenty to see and do nearby.


Stayed here with friends as an early 50th celebration. The lodge is absolutely beautiful, tastefully and comfortably decorated throughout. Comfy beds, good showers, towels for hot tub use, plenty of crockery, cutlery everything you could possibly need was catered for. The surroundings are blissful just a few sheep, pheasants and the odd rabbit. Sitting in the hot tub sipping prosecco and listening to the wonderful sound of nature was just perfect. Barbara popped by on arrival to introduce herself and run over some things, and she bobbed by each day to check the tub. Never intrusive, just a lovely lady who makes great cakes. Our one trip out was a walk to the Sun Inn pub, but on route we were offered s lift from a local farmer, ladies in the truck men in the trailer, hilarious, what a gem of a guy dropped us off on the pub carpark. I can honestly say we had a fabulous time and made some great memories. I would highly recommend it is all it says and more. Cant wait to revisit, so thank you very much Barbara and Richard we had a blast.

Perfect week of relaxation and fun in beautiful surroundings
We are a family with 5 children ranging from 3 months to 12 years old. Hampton Lodge was a beautiful and perfect place to relax for our first holiday with our youngest baby. The lodge itself had everything and more - even condiments and dishwasher tablets etc were there unlike other self catering places we have stayed. Towels were provided for both showers and hot tub separately - and the beautiful lodge was spotless. There was plenty of space outside for our children to play too and we could relax on the veranda, and wow the hot tub was huge, and definitely the best we have experienced - we have been on several ?hot tub lodge? breaks in various parts of the UK. My husband and I enjoyed badminton with the eldest 3 in the evenings as the sun was setting, or just relaxing in the hot tub watching the sheep pottering about. The boys loved running about outside, our 2 year old chattered to the sheep every day and every evening he toddled to say good night to them. We loved table tennis and the board games too. We first ate out at the Cross Foxes - fabulous quality food, and welcoming to children - great children?s park nearby too (we went twice!) We had a walk at Ellesmere and ate in the Boathouse, again great for the children and adults and lovely view over the Mere. Barbara was so welcoming and helpful with recommendations yet never intruded on our holiday...and the cake was just fabulous. We ordered our main food shop online (as there for a week with children) and delivery was smooth but there is plenty of small local shops / butchers / pharmacy / supermarket too. I enjoy running and it was so peaceful to be able to run from the lodge along the lanes, I rarely saw a car despite 6 mile runs. We also visited Llangollen which understandably was busy with it being Bank holiday but we had booked and ate in the Corn Mill pub there. We had a walk in a country park near there too. We had a fantastic holiday here and definitely would recommend. There are plenty of days out a short drive away but this trip we spent time relaxing and letting the children just enjoy local parks and the lodge so we will have to return!

Beautiful lodge!

Just got home from an amazing weekend at the hampton lodge. We went to celebrate a 30th birthday 8 girls and we haven't got one complaint. It was such a beautiful lodge I actually think it's nicer in real-life than what you see on the pictures. Hot tub was brilliant lovely view and very private. Barbara the owner was a pleasure to deal with such a nice lady. We will definitely be returning. Thank you Barbara.

A tonic- relaxing and comfortable
Our visit was for a 60th birthday celebration and this beautiful lodge proved perfect for the occasion. The peaceful location, lovely scenery and wonderful hot tub all added to a most enjoyable (and all too short) stay. Barbara?s delicious cake and friendly welcome were also much appreciated. The lodge was a fantastic ?home? for four adults and one baby for the week but also easily absorbed three additional adults for the actual family ?party? - champagne tastes just as good from a plastic glass when you are sitting in a bubbling, relaxing hot tub with Jacob sheep looking on! Also a bonus was the walk along quiet country lanes to the local ?Sun Inn? where good food and good beer were on offer. For an extra treat we visited the excellent ?Cross Foxes? with its super food and impressive view down the Dee. We will be returning! Just two small points- the kitchen work space is really limited and the stairs to the main bedroom rather steep. These things did not put us off.
