About Attingham West Lodge

A neo-classical lodge at the grand entrance to Attingham Park

Attingham West Lodge, commissioned by Richard, 5th Lord Berwick and built by 1862, is now a comfortable holiday cottage with Georgian style to link with Attingham’s history. The lodge is a Grade II listed building with river views from the master bedroom, walks from the doorstep and after-hours access to the estate.

On the ground floor you’ll find the sitting room with a woodburning stove, the dining room, the kitchen and the bathroom with an over-bath shower. Up the steep staircase, there’s one king-size bedroom and one single bedroom. The lodge has a small, enclosed garden with a lawn, a patio and seating.

There are many walks on the estate, through woods, parkland and along the river, and the national cycle route is close by. You’ll have free entry to Attingham Park’s Regency Mansion, Walled Garden, Deer Park and Field of Play, as well as other National Trust properties in the area including Sunnycroft, Benthall and Dudmaston. Attingham’s Carriage House Café, Stables Shop and second-hand bookshop are open every day.

The lodge is at the main entrance to Attingham Park in the village of Atcham, across the road from the Mytton and Mermaid Hotel with a restaurant and pub. The vibrant town of Shrewsbury is a 10-minute drive. Close by, there are canals, the river Severn and Tern, great Shropshire walks, and attractions including Wroxeter Roman City and World Heritage Site Ironbridge Gorge.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level.

The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions (stated on the cottage's webpage). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
