Escape to the Country:


An Idyllic Holiday Getaway


Big Bear Lodge is a wood clad B&B set within 4 acres of land in Melverley, Shropshire. Cultivating the feel of a luxury ski chalet, our idyllic lodge is miles from the main roads, yet only 20 minutes from the medieval town of Shrewsbury. It is truly 'off the beaten track; escape from the hustle & bustle of modern life.


Guests can enjoy a real log fire, comfortable seating and drinks on the sun balcony terrace soaking in the views across our 4 acres of country fields. New to the Big Bear Lodge this year is a 2 bedroom holiday let, sleeping up to 6 people with room for an additional travel cot. The let is self-contained with a fully equipped modern style kitchen. The Balcony off the lounge has some great views of the Breidden Hills and surrounding countryside.




Big Bear Lodge has three en-suite luxury appointed and individually designed rooms. Each room has a beautifully presented walkin wet room with a waterfall shower, king sized bed with 400 thread count Egyptian cotton linen, tea & coffee making facilities, flat screen TV/DVD player, WiFi and a full sized wardrobe.


We also have Canadian Camping Pods in the heart of the English Countryside at Melverley, Shropshire, where the rivers Severn & Vyrnwyn meet.

Each cabin can sleep up to 4 people, just bring all of your camping equipment except the tent! All of our pods, in their simpliest form are fully insulated with double glazed windows and doors, blinds for privacy, heated with lighting and electric socket.

NEW for 2015 is our luxury Glamping pod, Eagles Nest. Within this cosy pod you have everything all the other pods have BUT a few extras. The extras are: TV/DVD Player, double bed with bottom sheet, side lamps and storage units as well as tea & coffee making facilities.
