About Bev Chittem

Hi my name is Bev, Hampton Hayes is a 200 acre hill farm.Barry my husband rears beef cattle & sheep.

We also have a small boarding kennels & cattery. Wednesdays 9.00 to 3.00 we host activity days for special needs people, about 8 visitors. We do seasonal activities{ making jams/chutneys, bottle feeding lambs, gardening, arts & crafts. We enjoy meeting people and sharing stories. Our values: "we are each a stitch in the beautiful tapestry of life, some stitches might be more vibrant than others, but all stitches are needed to form the full picture" We try where possible to meet your requirements. please ask, any questions/directions email. Whilst the lodge is comfortable it isn't a high end luxury hotel (price reflects) Its a rustic cabin set in stunning countryside, and we welcome you.

Bev Chittem purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Bev Chittem chose Shrewsbury

Hampton Hayes Farm, nestles into the hill side and appears like the Mona Lisa, wherever you see the farm from the valley it appears to be looking directly at you.

We are situated at the end of the lane, so any traffic up the lane is to see us, we are south facing so get good sun, the views are far reaching .

What makes this cabin unique

Whilst we seem to be in the depths of beautiful countryside, we are only 1.5 miles from the village and approx 15 miles from the market towns of Shrewsbury, Welshpool & Montgomery which allows us feel we have the best of both worlds. Ideal for persons loving country walks, artists, professionals needing to wind down.

Amazing view and really helpful, friendly hosts!

  • 5 of 5

This property is set in a beautiful location on a lovely farm. We went with 4 children under 6 and a puppy! We were made to feel very welcome and the kids even got a turn on the digger! (Highlight of their summer!) They loved being able to go and feed the goat and donkey everyday and the enclosed garden was great for a run around with a view. Would definitely recommend this beautiful lodge to anyone!

Lovely, well presented with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely few days here for a family christening nearby. We were 3 adults, 2 children and a dog and all had enough room to roam around. Great enclosed garden for the children and dog, lovely exploring the farm seeing Lucy the donkey (who the 5 year old loved feeding) goats, pigs, sheep and cows. Couple of things to note: have to request towels (we'd missed this on the website but Barry kindly brought some over along with the travel cot- thankyou), smoke alarm is very sensitive as too close to the kitchen area so goes off every 5 minutes when cooking. Floor is very creaky so had to creep around when the toddler was sleeping so as not to wake him up. Cabin is well equipped and had everything we needed and is very comfortable. Thanks for a lovely stay! Views are phenomenal!! A great treat compared to the London views!! Will definitely recommend to friends!

Wow! You won't get a more stunning view from a holiday cottage! Lovely comfortable lodge.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to stay in a fabulous location with lovely owners. The views are simply stunning- watching the sun rising over the hills was beautiful. The lodge is a home from home, with all the things you need for a comfortable stay. A very handy outside decked area as well as a garden are great for enjoying the views with a meal or simply letting your dog have a wander in safety! The owners are great, very welcoming & available if you need them. A really peaceful spot- we highly recommend a stay at Dragonfly Lodge- you honestly won't be disappointed!!
