  • "Absolutely everything about the accommodation and location was perfect."

    Lindsey was the perfect host and made sure the stay was spot on. We chose this site because we have two dogs who could run freely and securely. They have never been able to run free before and they loved it. Since returning home they are depressed and are obviously really disappointed to find out that this wasn’t a permanent move. Never mind, all the more reason to book again and enjoy the local walks and the peace and tranquillity.

  • "Very well equipped lodge, nice and spacious, very clean."

    Setting is beautiful and peaceful. Wifi was good enough that we could stream things on Netflix/Disney+. There was no phone signal, but that wasn't a surprise or an issue for us. We didn't find the beds very comfortable and we couldn't get the pizza oven to work, but everything else was great. Hot tub was lovely, and we found the sheep watching us very amusing. It wasn't clear from the listing that there was another lodge on the same site, but it was far enough away that we weren't too bothered. Some trees/hedge between them for a bit more privacy would be nice. We would definitely consider coming back to this lodge because it was just what we needed.

  • "The property was fantastic."

    Everything we needed to hand and well equipped and comfortable. The walks from the property were great with added value following a chat with the owner Darren enabling a visit to a really nice real ale pub on one walk. We were there in March which is lambing season and it was great to see the lambs gambolling in the fields nearby. This is a real Gem.

    The track on approach once you’ve reached the farm is an off road track, my car was ok taking it slow but I wouldn’t advise anyone with lowered suspension as you may have slight problems. The lodge itself is just beautiful and the hosts were fabulous. Wine and eggs greeted us on arrival. The lodge has everything you’ll need to self cater. We arrived with a weeks worth of shopping the fridge freezer is a large double so plenty of room. We had direct access for the dogs and Ourselves to the walks and streams out the back of the lodge, the enclosed garden itself is fabulous. Watching the birds through the kitchen window was lovely. We managed to visit pen y fan,water breaks it’s neck and Aberystwyth to name a few places whilst staying at the lodge itself, be prepared to drive as it’s isolated. We enjoyed fabulous walks around the lodge aswell. An extremely relaxing break made perfect with the added extra of the hot tub on the patio. We will certainly stay here again.

    The lodge was excellent and had everything in it that you needed for your stay. We travelled with two Greyhounds, one of which doesn't get on with other dogs and this lodge proved perfect for us being completely private. The lodge has a big fully enclosed garden with stunning views over the welsh countryside. Inside the garden you had parking for at least 3 cars, table and chairs and a brilliant addition of a Pizza oven. Definitely take some pizza making foods with you, we used the pizza oven a couple of times and the pizzas were wonderful. You are free to roam the adjoining fields with your dogs and you could easily walk for hours without having to travel anywhere in your car. Darren and Lindsey were always on hand if you needed them and we spoke to Darren most days as he was transporting the lambs into the field next door. If you are into Photography, you will love the clear skies on an evening and the surrounding area. We visited the Gigrin Red Kite Feeding farm and i would definitely recommend it, it was amazing. Lots of places to visit within half an hour drive, Elan Valley & Break Neck Waterfall being two. Overall we had a fantastic holiday and will be returning when we can.

    Was just right for 2 adults, 2 kids (11 & 13yrs) and a very active dog - space for the kids to kick a ball about, and for the dog to run around in a fully fenced area. The owner was very welcoming and told us where we could safely take the dog off lead on his land away from sheep. Its very secluded, and there wasn't really any light pollution so sitting in the hot tub at night was the perfect way to end the days! Would definitely go back.

    We’ve just returned from a memorable and fantastic family holiday (2 adults & 5 year old) at wonderful Ploony Hill Lodge. We don’t have pets and in fact I’m allergic to most animal, especially dogs & cats but that was no worry here, superbly clean - you wouldn’t know pooches had been resident previously. Darren and Lindsay give the warmest of welcomes (flowers / wine in the fab fridge and melt in the mouth welsh cakes when you arrive are a lovely touch) they’re there if you need them, friendly and approachable and go the extra mile if you require anything but respect you privacy - the best hosts ! The lodge is very well equipped and has everything you need and more for a relaxing, luxurious stay - hot tub is Wow ! Location is idyllic - watching the squirrels in the trees as you fill the kettle for morning coffee, watching the bats do their dusk fly pasts, listening to the woodpeckers in the day and owls in the evening and the stars.... well you need to see them! The BBQ & Pizza oven hub is a great place rain or shine - we especially enjoyed oak smoked rib eye on the bbq and making pizza from scratch as a family was memorable- the things holidays are made of ! The surrounding area is great, walks up the hill and down the path from the lodge and a visit to Presteigne is a must, the Judges Lodging is great fun and interactive for all ages.
