This was a perfect lodge to relax in, with comfortable rocking chairs on the decking. If you are lucky to have good weather then you may be able to see some lovely sunsets with a glass of your favourite drink. The lodge itself had everything we needed with comfortable sofa and bed. Ideal base for visiting wales and Shrewsbury and Long Mynd DefiniteRead morely worth booking a table at the cross keys for excellent food and drinks and is only a short walk away Also the knockin shop sells lovely fresh bread Hide

upon arrival we thought the park settings were lovely and the lodge was great really nice and comfortable there was milk in the fridge which was a lovely thoughtful thing to do, also some tea and coffee cooker was easy to use although fire alarm went off when used the grill. bed was comfortable and we slept well may be an idea to use summer quilts Read moreas was a little warm with the one that was on. must book pub in kinnerly or you may not be able to eat, knockin pub was ok no need to book.

The Secret Gem is set in beautiful manicured grounds surrounded by trees, hedges and not overlooked. The lodge was cosy and well equipped, the bed was so comfortable with lovely quality bedding. Sitting in the hot tub looking up at the stars was a bonus. We had a great week exploring Shropshire and would definitely return.
