Stone Lodge holiday home details

This property is available to book from 1st September 2019!

Built in the 1830s, this charming Gothic gatehouse was designed by Morrison of Ireland. The lodge was completely restored in 2005, creating an elegant and tasteful holiday home for two. During the restoration, the original exterior stone loggia was incorporated as part of the cottage to create the hall and dining room, and the fireplace in the sitting room was enlarged to house a wood burning stove.

Parts of the original architecture are evident everywhere you look, with the stonework of the loggia painted a warm yellow and the wooden panelling painted a soft, warm shade. As guests at Stone Lodge, you are free to use all the facilities at Combermere, including the tennis courts and croquet lawn. There are plenty of walks and pathways to explore in the estate, and you’re also welcome to go fishing or swimming in the Mere.

Please note, Stone Lodge is ideally suited for couples. If you would like to stay as a family, please explore the other cottages at Combermere Abbey.

Attractions and nearby amenities

  • The Shropshire market town of Whitchurch is just a ten-minute drive away, with architecture dating from medieval, Tudor and Georgian times. The town hosts a food and drink festival every May. A short walk from the town centre takes you to the Llangollen Canal, which has a unique flight of seven locks.
  • Chester is a bustling town where you’ll find plenty of contemporary high street names and brands, but there’s also a wealth of history here. The Romans knew the city as Deva, and it’s still home to the largest Roman amphitheatre in Britain. The two-storey Rows are the place to come for shopping. And if you can pull yourself away from the retail therapy, Chester Zoo is a must too.
  • Life was hard in industrial Britain. Come and see for yourself just how much the workers had to toil at Quarry Bank Mill, where children had to work the looms. The gardens here are a riot of colour in the spring and summer.
  • If you’ve come away with the little ones, or you like a bit of adrenaline, the thrills and spills of Alton Towers are just a short drive away. It’s not all roller coasters and rides, there’s a water park too, as well as a dungeon visitor centre and stargazing pods.
  • The north-west is a trailblazer in the chemical industry, and Catalyst Science Discovery Centre enables you to explore the history behind the science. It’s an interactive and hands-on museum, where you get the chance to witness some experiments for yourself.
  • There’s plenty of wildlife on Combermere Estate itself, but if you’d like to see something a bit more exotic then head to Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom. From boa constrictors to a family of ring-tailed lemurs, there are lots of species to spot, and the little ones can lend a hand and feed the farm animals too.
