    “Pure peace and tranquility”

    Stayed 25th sept-2nd October ...

    Stayed 25th sept-2nd October. Nothing but good things to say about our stay. Upon arrival we were in awe of the beauty of dragon lodge, on the table there was a loaf of bread, and a lovely chocolate cake, along with fresh milk in the fridge, courtesy of the owners Kev and Julie. Was a lovely touch. Throughout the days were were there, I found I was finding more and more things as I sat looking around. The hot tub was large, temp averaged around 39, obviously dropped when hood off but only by a couple of degrees. Either kev or Julie checked the chemicals an levels each day to ensure it was all correct. The purpose of our week away was to chill a bit, do a bit of walking, and a bit of sightseeing, in the end we were that impressed with the lodge and surroundings, the last few days we just sat an relaxed either in the hot tub, or in front of the woodburning stove, wood for fire supplied by kev. The fields surrounding the lodges have sheep, goats, and horses in them, and the closest field houses the 3 llamas, they love biscuits, and will quite happily come to the balcony to bed fed said biscuits, we ventured into the fields one day, and Tom the llama was that excited for biscuits he reared up on Annettes back, she was a little shocked by this but we had been forewarned that they may, plus it was I no way being aggressive, merely playful an in search of biscuits. Annette was not injured in any way, an I found it was one of the funniest things I have seen for a while. The lodges are far enough away from society that you don't hear road noise, but close enough (village is a mile walk away) that you can easy get supplies. The main area (newtown) is around 15 mins drive away an has everything u need (morrisons/ tescos/ lidl plus kfc, maccys etc). When we arrived, we noticed an egg chair at the other lodge, I mentioned to kev that annette loves sitting in them, the next day we had been out an when we arrived back, there was one there waiting for us, a beautiful touch, nothing was too much trouble. Would like to say thank you to Kev and Julie for your hospitality and advice on local area and things to do, we will be staying again sometime in the near future. Look forward to staying at dragon lodge again.

This property sits in an elevated position, enjoying uninterrupted views of the countryside and a small lake that sits close by; this is the ideal property for unwinding and appreciating your surroundings.

Stepping into this all-ground-floor property, you will find a rustic, wood panelled, open-plan dining/kitchen/sitting area, making the most of the space and allowing in plenty of light.

The sitting area features a long sofa and cuddle arm chair, so you can choose where to curl up and enjoy watching TV, with the warmth of the log burner keeping you cosy on a chilly evening.

The contemporary, cream kitchen is well equipped with all the amenities you could wish for during your stay, as well as a dining area with seating for 6, where you can enjoy delicious home-cooked meals as a group while reminiscing over the day’s adventures.

The lodge includes two bedrooms; a king size bunk bed offers a higher level of comfort for smaller families wanting to share a space, while the master king-size bedroom features an en-suite shower room and ensures less queuing for the bathroom each morning.

Enjoy dining alfresco on the partly-covered decking area, whilst appreciating the tranquil, rural scenery, plus a hot tub brings a touch of relaxation to the end of a busy day exploring your surroundings.

Newtown is the largest town in the Powys region of Wales and was officially made a town in 1967, which saw a huge population increase.

Newtown rests along the River Severn, which spans 220 miles and offers a great place to enjoy a picturesque afternoon stroll and picnic.

You can also visit the Robert Owen Museum and Robert Owen Memorial, dedicated to the Welsh textile manufacturer and social activist, who resided in the town.

Pay a visit to the ruins of the medieval Dolforwyn Castle and enjoy learning about the textile history of the town at the Newtown Textile Museum.

Further afield, keen cyclists can join the National Cycle route which runs between Welshpool and Aberyswyth, which in parts runs alongside the River Severn the River Wye and takes in some fantastic Mid-Wales countryside.

The traditional and historic town of Montgomery is 8.4 miles away and has its own 12th century Norman castle, as well as the wonderful Glansevern Hall and Gardens, perfect for exploring the flora on display on a lovely summer’s day.

Dragon Lodge is an idyllic getaway for a family or group looking to escape to the tranquil Welsh countryside.
