Stone Lodge

This unique, stone-built detached cottage is beautifully furnished throughout and is set at the entrance to the stunning Combermere Abbey estate sited on the borders of Shropshire and Cheshire between the market towns of Nantwich and Whitchurch. This charming gothic gatehouse, built in the 1830’s, was designed by Morrison of Ireland, and is ideal for friends or couples to enjoy a relaxing break together in a tranquil setting. The cottage provides cosy, luxurious accommodation. Head into the well-equipped kitchen and through to the cosy sitting room with lovely woodburning stove and comfortable sofas and from there to the elegant dining room. This cottage exudes quality and style throughout. The double bedroom with sumptuous headboard and luxurious fur throw has its own wet room, whilst the first floor twin bedroom has a well-appointed en-suite bathroom. The cottage is set in private enclosed gardens with its own damson orchard and surrounded by beautiful trees. The large enclosed lawned garden is complemented by a large terrace with comfortable seating to make the most of sunny days. The fascinating nearby market town of Whitchurch and Nantwich offers a wealth of independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants and is just 20 miles from Shrewsbury, Chester and Wrexham making this an ideal spot for touring Shropshire, Cheshire and Wales. Enjoy the beautiful countryside cycling or walking on any number of routes, take a stroll along the Llangollen Canal or indulge in a day’s retail therapy in delightful historic Chester. There is plenty to see and do and with so many historic houses, lovely gardens and wildlife sites all within a 20 mile radius, you will be spoilt for choice. At the end of an adventure filled day, Stone Lodge awaits with a luxuriously warm welcome. A wonderful cottage for that special getaway holiday whatever the season.

Emma, August 2019

We have stayed here for 3 days and it really feels like home. It's well equipped for all our self catering needs. Nearest pub is a 10 minute walk (which welcomes dogs). Kev (the dog) couldn't get enough of the garden space. Safely enclosed. We will be booking to come back. Definitely recommend this cottage.

Charlotte Bean, September 2015

Stone Lodge was set in a private garden, so that the dogs could potter around, the lodge was comfy with a wood burning stove. Combermere is well worth a walk around with the dogs, and don't forget the local pub The Cholmondeley Arms, we would return to the lodge.
