  • "The property was spotlessly clean and had everything you needed."

    Hooks on the back of all bedrooms and bathrooms and outside for robes or towels. All smart TVs and it was warm and cosy. The bed made my back hurt a bit and the pans could do with an upgrade but there was everything you needed utensil and crockery wise. We did have quite a bit of rain but it didn’t stop us enjoying the relaxing hot tub most days or nights. The view is to die for. It’s worth going just for the tranquil setting. We ate out a few times in Welshpool at an Italian and a lovely pub. The only thing that drove me mad was the flies. We didn’t have the door open or windows and they kept appearing in every room. They were getting in somewhere. I was an expert at getting them by the time we left. It wasn’t a swarm or anything but there was always a few hanging around. It definitely wouldn’t stop me going back. It’s a beautiful lodge and the owners are lovely.

    Sonia and Dave are great people only seen Dave on arrival but he was good as gold and would respond well to messages and also recommend places if needed. Only thing we found was not very decent was the bed. Had a bad back woke myself every morning. Just think the mattress needs to be deeper. But please don’t take this as a compliment. Honestly we will be going back here. Just what we needed lovely and quiet with stunning views.

    They have and continue to work hard to provide the perfect holiday rental that does justice to its stunning location. The Lodges have absolutely everything you could need and are really comfortable. We have stayed in a lot of self catering rentals over the years and this is the best we have ever stayed in and we were sad to leave.

    Are just a few words to describe the lodge we stayed in. We came for a chilled break away and that’s exactly what we got. So quiet and beautiful surroundings but not far from supermarkets or garden centres, shops if you wanted to do something. As soon as we got here we were amazed by the cleanliness and how beautiful the lodge was. We got there when it was dark and couldn’t wait to see the views the next day, and we definitely was not disappointed. The views were breathtaking and wherever you looked it was all around you with the lovely big windows. The views at night watching all the stars so bright when the sky was clear was just as beautiful as the daytime views. Would love to return and have been recommending to everyone who’ll listen. Thankyou Sonia & Dave for a perfect stay.

The only noise we could hear (and it was a lovely noise!) was a family of owls. The clear nights in the hot tub were magical. The amount of stars, satellites and numerous shooting stars we saw was phenomenal. We have never known a night sky so alive with activity. The lodge itself was decorated to a high standard and the beds were super comfy. We had everything we needed and there were even board games and cards for the children to play with. All in all a fantastic holiday and we really didn’t want to leave! Oh, and I can’t forget the gorgeous lambs!

Situated about 7 miles north-west of Welshpool, this pretty village also offers tennis courts (day tickets can be purchased cheaply from the village shop), its own ruby and football teams and a historic church where there is said to be the royal tombs of 2 former princes of Powys. Fishing permits for the River Vyrnwy and Banwy can also be purchased from the village shop. Lake Vyrnwy with its RSPB reserve and Pistyll Rhaeader (Llanrhader waterfall) a 240ft waterfall in 3 stages, which is counted as one of the Seven Wonders of Wales, are only a short drive away. Both are sites of scientific interest. Gwyndu Cottage is about an hours drive away from 5 of the best places to ride mountain bikes in North Wales. Nearby, Llanfair Caereinion is in the heart of old Montgomeryshire's Banwy valley and is one of the smallest towns in Powys. Just a short walk over the Banwy Bridge from the hilly streets of the town centre, is the steam Welshpool to Llanfair Light Railway. Welshpool is a bustling market town, nestled in the Severn Valley 4 miles from the border between Wales and England. There is a lovely blend of shops, quality pubs and restaurants, as well as a restored cock fighting pit and interesting Heritage Trail. Visit the famous 13th Century Powis castle, or enjoy a cruise along the Montgomery canal. There is much to be enjoyed of an afternoon here. A gentle stroll through the town will have you taking in the Georgian architecture, there is even a golf club with a top of the world situation, overlooking the picturesque Welsh borderlands - a perfect location to practice your swing! Further afield is country town of Shrewsbury, with its half-timbered Tudor buildings, museums and lovely shopping experiences. An opportunity not to be missed!
