This is our second stay at the fantastic lodges, but in a different lodge.. We arrived at the diamond lodge and it was very comfortable and tidy with an amazing view of the courtyard. Anna was very friendly as usual and helped us with any small problems such as a light bulb going etc ;) Highly recommended.

I found this accommodation about a year before my wedding date, and I knew it would be a perfect location for my family to stay in for the wedding weekend. Anna and her husband were so helpful, right from the first phone call. They allowed me to come and visit the property, answered any questions I had and had a really friendly and relaxed attitude, which massively helps when you're planning a wedding. The stables themselves are beautiful, we hired out all 4 of their properties and each has been designed to a high spec, with all the homely comforts you could wish for and all our family were impressed. We had the freedom to use the property as we saw fit, our photographers and makeup artists were there on the wedding morning and family came to drop in before the ceremony at Sandon Hall, without any issue, so again thank you for that.

Being the lucky winners of a week's equestrian traing at Ingestre our team was welcomed with open arms by the fabulous hosts Aaron and Anna Chetwynd. Travelling with four teenagers in tow can be a challenge but suffice to say staying in the newly renovated Chetwynd Lodge made for a seamless experience. The open plan downstairs living room and well equipped kitchen was great for team breakfasts, lunch on the go and cosy card nights in with a handy docking station and wi fi to cater for all their entertainment needs. Meanwhile, the mezzanine double bedroom with ensuite upstairs gave the adults a little welcome retreat. Being so close to the stables meant the riding sessions were easily accommodated and being a busy working stable there was always something going on to keep our horse lovers amused. Nothing was ever too much trouble for the staff of this horse lovers paradise and we hope to be back next year!

My wife, myself and 4 teenagers were lucky enough to stay at Ingestre Lodge for the second time in 3 years. We had travelled from our home in Hong Kong and again Anna and Aaron were there to greet us and show s around our accommodation for the week - Chetwynd Lodge. Everything at Ingestre Lodge is first class or A* if you are studying. The lodge itself had everything you needed for a week with teenagers. The upstairs bedroom gave us a bit of space but it was the downstairs living area that really set this lodge apart. The kitchen has everything you need and is very well appointed. Back to Anna and Aaron - what great hosts they are. Nothing at all is a problem for them and they both go out of their way to help. Hopefully we will visit them again next year.

We had a family and friends birthday celebration...therefore took over the lodge. As part of the festivities (50th Birthday Party) took in the V Festival, the weekend was an extravaganza of fun. Ingestre was a lovely place with super facilities...beautifully designed, spacious and very comfortable. A modern Countryside twist felt right...both owners are Architects and you could tell they captured the essence of country life for townies. Recommended

We stayed at Ingestre Lodges twice while i was doing an Iron Man Event, My Wife & i stayed one weekend in one of the small lodges & it was awesome top class accommodation & very cool as a weekend away for two even after cycling 56 miles just for fun for practice!!!! We then stayed again as a party of 13 on the weekend of the event and everybody was blown away my the accommodation & facilities. Liked it so much have booked it already for next year and think might need all 3 lodges as everybody who went wants to come again and stay. I'm sure they are supposed to be there to support me not indulge in Ingestre? Thanks Again Anna for all your help in making my two stays great. Alan

We enjoyed rural atmosphere and great hospitality from the Lodges. The nearby restaurant suggested by the Lodges was very delicious with reasonable price.

I stayed here for 2 nights and was delighted with the personal service Anna offered. She made me feel quite at home and the location of the lodges is in an idyllic setting. If you are looking for a quiet retreat with some great character (unlike your usual chain hotels!!) you can't go wrong with this. Joanne

We stayed at the lodges at Ingestre as part of a large group of extended family. The family have done a fantastic job in converting the lodges into airy and bright accommodation, while maintaining the agricultural character of the buildings. The lodges have great facilities, loads of bathrooms, bright large kitchens and even facilities for our disabled grandmother. The management were also very understanding and accommodating surrounding a mishap with a kettle (sorry again!) and very kindly returned a pair of forgotten glasses to me afterwards by post! One tip I would say is to bring more food and booze than you need - the fridges and freezers have plenty of room, and a pair of slippers/sandals to wear indoors. I really couldn't recommend Ingestre Lodges enough!
