  • "What a fabulous stay we had!"

    An amazing lodge set in a very picturesque setting. You wake up with the sounds of birds in the garden, The Lodge is a wonderful place to explore Clywedog from. It has everything for a holiday cottage, it is very comfortable, clean and spacious, with beautiful decor and windows, for a very smooth cosy stay, The rooms and bathrooms were immaculately clean, with lovely touches throughout, and the cottage is big enough for a group of 4. The owners have really thought about everything. We got lost on the way, however the hosts are very attentive, and communication is excellent. If you are looking to get away from it all and rejuvenate in beautiful location, this is perfect. With the reassurance that everything is at your doorstep when needed. then this is the place. We are truly missing the beautiful location and lodge. I wish we could have stayed longer in the Larches. This is an ideal location to explore and enjoy the great fishing at Llyn Clywedog from. Thanks Emma & Tom.

    It's v.well constructed, well equipped, extremely comfortable and perfect location to explore other areas. We went with our daughters aged 9 and 11, both loved it too. Hot tub was v.clean and was lovely to relax in each day and enjoy the views and watch the birds. The BBQ was great, we used it many times. It doesn't matter what the weather is like you will enjoy this lodge. When I booked this lodge I wanted a place with a view and hot tub and pet free, totally ticked all boxes and so much more! We wish we could have stayed longer. The hosts, Tom and Emma both helpful, thank you.

    We wanted to forget our hectic daily lives and completely unwind, we managed this 100 times over and that’s with a 3year old in tow also. We were fortunate enough to be snowed in which wasn’t an issue as we had planned on doing very little and had stocked up. The lodge is equipped so you can easily cook a full roast if you wish. The owners also offered to get some essentials and Tom rescued us one day when we had a snowy walk, he came to see that we were okay as he knew we had the little one with us. There are things to do if you want to venture out or there are walks from the lodge and the reservoir is close by. The hot tub, the snow, the starry sky and getting away from normality was exactly what we wanted. Thank you to the owners who were there if needed though also didn’t invade our privacy.

    We had a lovely warm welcome from Tom who showed us around the property. Goodies were left for us which was a nice touch. The property was exceptionally clean, warm & comfortable with pretty decor. Very well equipped to make evening dinners etc. There is an undercover seating area to the side of the property which is brilliant if weather not so good & a gas BBQ to enjoy. Lovely to sit in the hot tub watching all the birds & listening to the owl on moonlit nights! Very peaceful & a great property to relax in. Thank you Tom, Emma & family for everything

    The Larches is an outstanding lodge set in a spectacular location and is immaculately kept. It is beautifully fitted out to an extremely high standard, all quality fixtures and fittings, the beds and sofas were really comfortable, lots of fluffy towels, even bath robes were provided for us to use. The lodge is set in the hills and the views are breathtaking, it was so quiet and peaceful, no light pollution at night while looking at the stars from the hot tub a perfect way to end the day. We throughly enjoyed this superb lodge for a relaxing week, we will definitely return. Thank you Tom and Emma for the thoughtful box of goodies you provided they were much appreciated.

    When I saw the pictures of the views from this lodge I know this place would be amazing. As soon as I booked, I received lots of useful information for our stay. I was also contacted by the owner who was very friendly and made sure we knew where we were going and had everything we needed. When we arrived, the views were not disappointing. We were met by the owner and shown around. The lodge was stunning, very clean and had everything we needed. The owner told us of places we could visit and was extremely friendly. I would 100% recommend this place to family and friends and anyone looking for a relaxing break. Waking up in the morning, having a cup of tea and listening to the cows and sheep was lovely. It was unbelievably quite and just perfect. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful holiday home. We hope to be back real soon. Charlotte, David, Olivia and James ☺️

    The property is spotlessly clean with every amenity you could wish for in a holiday cottage. The property photos don’t do it justice. If you are after peace and tranquility this is the place whilst also being very close to a lovely little town. The bird feeders were kept topped up by the owners which is a lovely touch and we were able to watch a family of greater spotted woodpeckers feeding from them daily. Fabulous! Can’t wait to return!

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at The Larches, the views are as stunningly beautiful as previous reviews suggest."

    The hot tub is a real bonus, living area is spacious and the barbecue was put to good use as well. What stopped me from giving 5 stars was the the bed in the master bedroom is two single mattresses pushed together, this meant the sheet would often come off as it was not fitted, there was also nowhere to hang clothes that have been washed or were wet from the hot tub or from walking if we were caught in the rain. Neither of these would stop me from staying here again however and overall our stay in mid Wales was enjoyable with the accommodation contributing to that.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to respond Grant, so very much appreciated. We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay! The king bed is indeed a zip and link bed (as advertised)which allows the bed to be split in to singles, and we have special fitted sheets for such bed which I’m so sorry to hear came off during your stay. We would’ve changed this straight away for you. We also have clothes rails in the cloakroom for guests to use to hang washing to dry - so I’m so sorry you didn’t locate this during your stay. We were so sorry we couldn’t accommodate your request to stay longer, so we do hope you get the opportunity to visit us again in the future. Thank you once again for choosing to with us, we’re so lucky to have such lovely guests like yourselves. Best wishes, Property Owner
