Relax by the lake

General

  • Countryside park with two fishing lakes
  • Views of the south Shropshire Hills and the hills into Wales
  • Half an hour from Ironbridge Gorge

Splendid Shrewsbury, historic home to medieval streets, over 660 listed buildings and many a festival – and half an hour from the illustrious World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge.

And splendid Wigmore Lakes, close to all this industrious activity but also a Shropshire countryside site with views of both the south Shropshire Hills and the hills into Wales, to use as a base for peaceful retreats of an evening.

Or just stay on site instead: Wigmore Lakes has two fishing lakes for guests for a small daily rate, to catch carp, tench, roach, bream and other silverfish (one of the lakes is predominantly filled with carp and the other has a complete mix and is often used for matches).

Wigmore Lakes doesn't have a site shop, but a shop/post office is just outside, along with a fish and chip shop for takeaway and a café for breakfast and other meals.

A modern toilet and shower block is available for guests' use.

Wigmore Lakes does accept kids, but doesn't have any facilities for them such as a play area or games.

    The lakes

    Disliked: 

    Facilities open and used by non paying visitors which were left unchallenged. Found this unsatisfactory due to the present Covid situation.
    When brought to the attention of the site owner this was passed to the site warden who then accused us of being rude and then lied about moving the visitors on.
    Not what we were expecting as paying customers and as a result left a night early.
    Definitely won't be going back.

From the manager...

Thanks so much for the valued feedback.

I am sorry that your stay was not satisfactory, we have taken on board your comments. You will have been aware from the information placed outside the facilities block that all customers are required to adhere to certain safety measures, one would hope that these uninvited guests would have had the common decency to have followed the instructions. We are required to maintain good ventilation which is why we ask guests once they have used the facilities to leave the doors open to vent the facilities, this has now been revised.

Having spoken to various other guests on site i was assured that the uninvited guests were in fact moved on and I visited the site once you had reported it to me and they were no longer present. The toilets were misted and cleaned a short time afterwards.
