Overview

About the property

Forest Glade is a mobile home situated in a private woodland clearing. Spacious and well appointed, the home offers the chance to be close to nature with the convenience of modern facilities and home comforts. It is extremely private and you are literally in the heart of the woodland, overlooking the famous Lime Kilns (caves) and all of the natural wildlife.

In the summer it is a perfect place to unwind while you sit outside with a glass of wine and a burger from the BBQ. Enjoy toasting marshmallows around your own private campfire whilst gazing at the clear starry sky. During the day enjoy making dens in the woods, playing garden games, and looking out for all the wildlife including foxes, badgers, deer and our rare birds.

The home will sleep 2 adults and up to 3 children. Large living room and dining area, fully equipped kitchen with a newly updated modern bathroom with shower (photos to follow)

Forest Glade is just 6 miles away form the Historic Ludlow. Other sites to see include the beautiful Berrington Hall (national trust), Hope Bagot village and Church, The famous West Midlands Safari Park, and Stokesay Castle.

Forest Glade is in a secluded woodland location, so may not be suitable for guests with limited mobility or physical disabilities. Please contact us before booking if you have any concerns.

Dogs are very welcome and Forest Glade for a small additional cost and MUST BE DECLARED BEFORE ARRIVAL. We only ask that they do not go on the furniture and their dirty paws are wiped before entering the home. An extra charge of £10.00 per dog is payable either via the website or in cash on arrival.

About Fern Bowkett

We are a small family run business made up of three generations of very strong and ambitious women. There is Janet, my Grandmother, my mother Penny and myself, Fern. Whilst my Grandmother Janet provides the most luxurious and extravagant continental breakfasts the world as ever seen for our Bed and Breakfast accommodation Bowketts Wood, my mother works as an accountant for a local firm nearby and I run the business Woodland Escapes from home whilst studying to be a barrister.

We love our home and wish to share it with guests to they too can experience the thrill of waking up somewhere breathtaking.

Why Fern Bowkett chose Ludlow

Forest Glade, like all of our accommodation is unique because you are completely secluded in your own woodland clearing, surrounded by acres and acres of private woodland. There are no rows of caravans here - you have complete privacy. In addition you have have the freedom to build your own campfires and toast marshmallows, have a BBQ and explore the natural landscape that right on your doorstep. You can watch the natural wildlife from the comfort and warmth of our cosy mobile home that has had a recent refurbishment. We provide a stunning log bug burner for colder nights so you can snuggle up on the sofa with your loved ones and enjoy a DVD from our vast DVD library.

We are also fantastic value for money. We want to share the love that we have for our home and its surroundings with our guests and we want them to experience the thrill of waking up somewhere breathtaking without the huge price tag attached.

Ideal for a couples romantic break away or a family holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very attentive Host, came to see me at my request. I had peace and quiet, clean and spacious. TV, Cooker, Toaster, Microwave, everything you could possibly want is there. I looked forward to seeing the wild cute Bunny Rabbit outside nibbling the grass in the mornings. Perfect, warm, you will be very happy here.
