  • "We were looking forward to having a break away from it all in complete privacy having seen the photographs and checking on the fencing situation as we have a dog who is over- friendly."

    When we arrived Keith asked a lady by the farm type buildings and machinery where we might find Poppy. She did not engage in any welcoming conversation just told us it was the second one along. The huts are attractive but the view from the back window was awful and a tractor with some sort of scraper was going backwards and forwards scraping rainwater from the ground for quite some time. The photographs are also very misleading, we realised they must have been taken with a fish-eye lense as the hut and the garden area were very much smaller and the other huts much closer than we thought. There was a ‘Guests information’ booklet but this did not give any information about how to use the shower, the heating, the hob or the tv. A Guest book was provided for guests to write their feedback but I found it a little suspicious, considering the above that it was a loose leaf book, with only glowing reviews. Although it was thoughtful to provide a small bottle of milk and coffee, tea and sugar, it would be a good idea to provide condiments and cooking/olive oil too. We enjoyed our break due to the places we visited and the views of the hills and sheep but the experience could have been so much better with some friendliness and thoughtfulness from the hosts.

The property

Rhayader 3.2 miles.

Perched in St Harmon near the small market town of Rhayader is this superb single-storey hut, Poppy.

Boasting all ground-floor living, a hot tub and a woodburning stove, Poppy welcomes two guests, ideal for a couple, and their furry companion to enjoy a rural retreat in Mid Wales.

Enter your new favourite home-away-from home to enjoy the studio-style living space, setting yourself down at the intimate breakfast bar as your other half whips up a tasty snack in the well-equipped kitchen.

On balmy evenings, move mealtimes outside and bask in a glass of wine or two as you admire your surroundings; soak in the bubbling hot tub until the sky grows dark, then freshen up in a sleek shower room before finally climbing into a sumptuous king-sized bed to enjoy a movie on the Smart TV.

For a romantic escape you’re not likely to forget, venture to Radnorshire and stay at Poppy.

The bedrooms are then served by a light and sophisticated shower room, whilst a few steps away an attractive open-plan living space features a kitchen, dining area and sitting area, together providing all the essentials of a self-catering stay. Outside, a fabulous enclosed front garden boasts both a patio and a decking with a private hot tub and outdoor seating area, and off-road parking for two can be found completing all of the lodges. Make the most of your time in the area with days spent exploring the Elan Valley, Castle Hill and Epynt Way, whether on an awe-inspiring hike or an exhilarating cycle. See The Arch and the site of Rhayader Castle, or visit the neighbouring town of Llandrindod Wells and uncover the Rock Park and Spa, Castell Collen Roman fort and Cefnllys Old Castle. The town of Rhayader is filled with pretty tea rooms, charming pubs and well-established stores, offering all the essential amenities.

Other places to note include the colourful seaside town of Aberystwyth and the imposing Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, both just a pleasant drive away. Six idyllic wood lodges offering a remarkable base from which to tour Wales.
