"A study in getting things right"
Stopped as a diversion on a trip back from a business meeting in Manchester looking for a night of good food in a pleasant environment and it would be fair to say we more than met this target. The Old Lodge shows just how an eye of the detail can make a stay really pleasurable form the cheerful welcome, actually by the owner, to wonderful rooms and brilliant food. The locality is blissfully off the beaten track from carefully navigating the pheasants on the road in and just being so peaceful. Read less
Likes:
The quality of the room was excellent, a beautifully restored set of farm building with well thought out design features. The meal and wine were definitely as tasty as previously reported.
Dislikes:
Leaving?
Response from Old Downton Lodge:

Having won countless plaudits for their award winning hospitality business, Willem and Pippa, saw the potential to create a unique venue that defies any attempt to categorise it.They have created somewhere that is fascinating, intriguing and mesmeric.

Old Downton Lodge is not a hotel, nor is it really a bed and breakfast or a restaurant with rooms. The bedrooms are unforgettable; Quirky, luxurious, packed with history and designed to make you smile. The hospitality is relaxed and genuine. The food is exceptional and the wine list inspired.

Parts of Old Downton are so ancient that history merges with legend: its renovation so sympathetic and creative that you may confuse fact with fiction. The sitting room is redolent of its previous incarnation – there is no hiding the fact that this was once an impressive stable. Mighty timbers that once fronted stalls now provide seating from which to watch the roaring log burner, socialise and enjoy a drink from the bar – or in summer to contemplate the spectacular sunsets over the Shropshire hills.

Fashioned out of ancient stables and barns, you certainly won’t encounter uniformity here: A mixture of exposed beams, high ceilings, alcoves, malt shoots and hidey holes have all been incorporated in varying combinations in one room or another. The dining room is in its pomp when set out for a party of twelve or eighteen, but it is equally atmospheric when laid out with table of two or four. It has the feel of a grand medieval hall.

Although modern roads will lead you to its doorstep, Old Downton Lodge is well off the beaten track – and far away from light pollution.
