    ! The ability to get up and out was slowed down by the view. The peace and relaxation was invaluable. You're close enough to visit places, especially Hay-on-Wye, a must in our book!!

  • "Stayed with my parents, husband, 9 year old daughter and dog."

    We had an amazing time, the property had a very warm, welcoming feel. The only negative was the outside light not working, for evening dips in the hot tub but I know the owner was intending on fixing it asap. The owner also very kindly, went above and beyond and returned our daughter's school book to us through the post. We are very happy customers, who would highly recommend pen y clawdd cottage.

The owners were so lovely and helpful, answering all of our questions and giving us recommendations of places to go. We both agreed we had never felt more relaxed or comfortable on a vacation. The place was so warm, cosy and homely. Cannot recommend Pen Y Clawd more… just perfection!

    The lodge was beautiful, cosy and clean. Miranda was very helpful and easy to contact should we need anything. We really appreciated how eco-friendly this lodge was, with even the cleaning products being cruelty-free and environmentally friendly. We enjoyed using the hot tub, exploring the local area and peaceful mornings on the porch admiring the view!! We could not have asked for more from our stay here, it was an excellent break from busy city life!

  • "When we got there the hot tub wasn’t working but the owner was super friendly and got it working for us after consulting the manual."

    The neighbours next door were extremely loud and disrespectful but that was nobody’s fault. The lodge is very much in the middle of nowhere and the local village which is about ten minutes drive away is very dead. Our child got bored quite a lot. There was no plug for the bath but this was no big deal as there was a shower in the downstairs bedroom. The lodge itself was very well equipped but considering it’s such a drive to the nearest supermarket, if I was being picky I’d say bigger fridge freezers would be a better option. It was a lovely warm lodge though and a great break away and the owner is a really delightful person - really friendly and a pleasure to deal with. I’d possibly come back for a weekend stay we just felt a week was a bit too long for us.

  • "Such a lovely peaceful place."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the cabin is great it has everything you need for a great weekend away. Only comment is that the hot tub wasn’t hot enough for our first night so we couldn’t make use of that on our first evening and the beds are quite small. Other than that we absolutely loved it and have already recommended to friends. Fantastic place if you have dogs, they are safe secure and stunning walks really close by.
