  • "Lovely cabin in beautiful surroundings."

    Cabin didn’t feel too close to other cabins (which was a definite bonus) There is a baby gate on veranda which was useful as we could leave patio doors open for dogs without worrying that they would go too far. It was great to sit and have breakfast on the veranda and look out for red kites and other birds. Hot tub was lovely - clean and already on when we got there & on throughout our stay. A couple of practical things: - There is no salt/ pepper/ olive oil there so take your own. - two toilet rolls are provided but any additional you will need to take - washing up liquid, cloth and sponge are there for you plus two black bin bags - one towel per person is provided, so take an additional one for hot tub - wifi works ok - fridge is an under counter one so has a small freezer section (enough for ice blocks)

    Thanks for your wonderful feedback, we will take it all on board. In regards to the practical things, it is a self-catering lodge hence why none of those stuff is provided. We will certainly have a think about this. Thanks Property Owner

    The cabin was cozy and having the hot tub for the evenings was a bonus. We all thoroughly enjoyed our short stay and will definitely be looking to book back next year.

  • "My family and I enjoyed a charming, private lodge nestled in lush vegetation for a week."

    The staff were friendly and always ready to assist, and the host maintained excellent communication throughout our stay. Unfortunately, we faced significant setbacks during our stay. We chose the property for its Wi-Fi, but it was completely non-functional, impeding our remote work. The lack of signal on our mobile phones compounded the issue. Despite connectivity challenges, we relished the natural surroundings for outdoor activities. The TV didn't work either, limiting our entertainment options. We missed access to TV channels and streaming services like Netflix, which was a letdown, especially for our 16-year-old daughter. One improvement we would suggest is providing essential kitchen items such as salt, pepper, and cooking oil at the property. It would have been convenient to have these basics on hand, especially when arriving after a long journey, to prepare a simple meal without the need to make a trip back into town. In summary, despite connectivity issues and the lack of kitchen basics, the lodge's beautiful location and the relaxing hot tub were the highlights of our stay.

    Thanks for your feedback. In regards to the connectivity, the whole valley had issues. We understand this was very frustrating. It has been fixed now. We'll take all of this information on board. Thanks Property Owner

  • "Hi in general it was fine , just a few little things could have been better , but i understand maintenance can not be carried out during people staying."

    The bathroom / toilet window needs a roller blind for privacy , from oher guest. The hot tub lid needs to be made easier to lift on and off . The properties patio doors not very secure , needs new bolt and bottom of door planing to make easier entry/ exit . The patio needs better gates to secure dog and again for exit / entry . Maybe a more modern microwave . Overall it wasn't bad ,and we had good time staying and would come back . Very peaceful environment and great location for walking and outdoor activities .

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - it was a treat to stay in a real log cabin, with a hot tub included!"

    Very secluded with stunning views of Elan Valley. Quiet and well kept, but within a short easy drive of Rhayader. My only suggestion (not a criticism) would be to provide basic essentials of tea & coffee, sugar, a small milk, salt & pepper and handwash.

    Thanks for your feedback, we will certainly take this on board. Property Owner

  • "It was a beautiful peaceful stay at the cabin and we thoroughly enjoyed the downtime with the rolling hills and scenery we looked out on, plus the wonderful perk at having the hot tub to relax in after being out all day."

    If I was to be really picky then the shower wasn’t brilliant, the water pressure wasn’t great and kept running cold. We would definitely return and recommend to friends and family xx

    Thanks for your wonderful feedback. We have sorted the low water pressure issue out. We hope to see you in the future again. Property Owner
