“Lovely lodge in a very nice area.”
If you want peace and quiet with plenty of walking on the doorstep then this is ideal. However it was a little bit to isolated for us having to use the car every evening to use restaurants in Llandrindod which was a ghost town at night and Rhayader which was more lively and we would stay there if we return, The nearest pub is the Severn Arms at Penybont about two miles but very dark roads at night making it unfeasible to walk.

Can't fault the lodge though it was lovely and had everything we needed.- Mr Harlow, September 2020
“Very quiet, accommodating, and felt at home.”- Mr Bealer, September 2020
“Your pictures do not match reality!”
The chalet is close to a VERY busy main road. We couldn’t see a green field or 18th Century cottage farm. The second bedroom is definitely not suitable for adults. The fridge freezer box needed defrosting and the oven door (which we cleaned) was unacceptable. Wifi was available at an extra cost , it took me three days to sort it. The lounge, dining area and kitchen size was fine and a good strong shower. We appreciated the milk and Welsh Cakes on arrival and there was a large television.- Mr Ecclestone, September 2020
“What a lovely cosy place foxes den is.”
We had everything we could have wished for including treats for us and our dog. This is an ideal setting for going out and exploring the local area, you will need a car, devil's bridge, Elan valley and the red kite feeding station are a must see. Everywhere is really dog friendly too so made it a wonderful holiday being able to take our dog everywhere. The beds are comfy and the chalet was spotless with great communication from the owner... Book a stay at foxes den and be wowed by everything you won't regret it.- Mrs Neilly, August 2020
“We had a wonderful stay at Foxes Den.”
The weather was not too kind to us, but that didn't deter us from exploring that beautiful part of Wales, which was easily accessible from where the property is situated. Foxes Den was warm and comfortable and nice to go back to after a day out. Thank you also for the milk, Welsh cakes and doggie treats on arrival.- Miss Beverley, January 2020
“A prefect place to stay, everything we needed with welcome gifts that were appreciated”- Mrs Willmott, January 2020
“Fantastic place to stay,so much was provided for us and a little welcome pack.”
Place was lovely and warm and so much to see and only a short drive away.Even teenage daughter had a great time and would go again,can't get a better recommendation than that.- Mr Sale, October 2019
“I have already sent an email to you regarding the accommodation.”
Firstly you describe the accommodation as a lodge and then further on a chalet. On arrival the accommodation, although it was clad, was not a lodge or chalet but a caravan. We booked the holiday expecting to be in either a lodge or chalet as we do not like staying in caravans, consequently we were very disappointed. I have booked many holidays through yourselves but after this experience I will need to think hard before booking with you again.- Mr Jeffery, April 2019
“Foxes Den is a lovely lodge, great for a mid-wales base to explore from :0) As well as being cozy, tidy and homely, the shower was amazing, plus there was milk in the fridge and welsh cakes waiting for us.”
We couldn’t have asked for more.- Miss Hooper, December 2018
“The chalet was really cosy and comfy.”
Location was central to everywhere we went. The welsh cakes and dog treats were a special little added extra- Miss Howells, September 2018
“They leave a little welcome pack, that also includes your pet which was really nice and thoughtful”- Miss Fletcher, July 2018
“Unfortunatley we cut short our holiday and returned home on Thursday .”
The chalet was very clean and well equipped but so small , not suitable for more than two adults . The twin beds which my husband and I needed were so small we couldn't sleep . 2ft 6inch beds are not suitable for adults plus the fact you couldn't move in the room , couldn't get dressed struggled to get unpacked which we didn't in the end and couldn't close the door properly , also having winter bedding didn't help , we do know you can not do anything about the heat but we couldn't sit outside to eat as the table was so small and only two chairs , we did d appreciate the welcome gifts , and our dogs were allowed but unfortunately the neighbors were not dog friendly. We bought a fan to try to help but not many windows opened in the sitting area , in all we struggled on this holiday , I don't very often say anything but I do think people should be made aware of how small it is and adults not in the twin room ,- Mrs Cowl, July 2018
“There was a lovely warm welcome with great personal touches from the owners for both us and the dogs (we loved the welsh cakes and coffee , they loved their treats) .”
We stayed in very warm weather during the World Cup , hubster loved the bigger than expected tv. Free internet if you sign up not bad can be intermittent (2-3mg broadband speed on visit) Kitchen fully equipped ( hubster sad he had to wash the dishes ) and I loved the quality of crockery and glasses . Beds and furniture were comfy , and whilst the lodge is a little aged the decor is well maintained and lovely . Enclosed(ish) veranda meant we could have the doors open to cool down and not worry about the dogs escaping , The site itself is small and residential so fairly quiet ,you will hear a bit of road noise but not significant we slept with the windows open. The village itself has very few amenities, there is a shop and a cafe at the garage but it’s range is not vast , and the ‘local’ is a distance away we didn’t try it , so be prepared to cook dinner , that being said Llandrindod Wells(a short drive) has a Aldi and a Tesco’s which is easily accessible and Rhayader( we drove through almost daily)has an excellent butchers (bobs) and a big co-op and spar . We were not short of activities in the shade and sun , Llandrindod has a lovely little stroll around the lake and also the rock Gardens , Rhayader has a beautiful riverside walk and the elan valley dams , an hour drive to Aberystwyth with all The shenanigans there and 40mins to devils bridge waterfalls . In short we had a wonderful week, was blessed with lovely weather and always felt relaxed when back at the lodge- Mrs Cloherty-jones, June 2018
“We would certainly consider renting this property again.”- Mr Stevenson, April 2018
“We had a very tranquil holiday,dec to jan, we went that time because of the firework's on new years eve upsetting our dog, (didn't hear one), excellent accomodation, everything you want, a bigger tv that is in the advert which is smart tv, a little tetchy on the ramp if it is wet, and you are infirm,but other than that an excellent modern lodge for a family or a couple, plenty of dog walk's, the owners are very pleasant, to deal with.”
Thank's for the doggie treat's will be going again, thank's, maggie & jeff, from dudley.- Mr Arrowsmith, December 2017
