    “This was by far one of the best experiences I have had.”

    Kerena and Chris were such wonderful hosts and made us feel so welcome from the moment we arrived. The lodge was magical, as was everything about it, not to mention the hideaway den bed that my 9yr old son slept in. It exceeded my expectations of a glamping experience, combine it with the feel of a real home in the wilderness, made a truly memorable holiday. Waking up every morning to the rolling hills and the resident sheep was so refreshing and good for the soul. The welcome pack together ...

    Kerena and Chris were such wonderful hosts and made us feel so welcome from the moment we arrived. The lodge was magical, as was everything about it, not to mention the hideaway den bed that my 9yr old son slept in. It exceeded my expectations of a glamping experience, combine it with the feel of a real home in the wilderness, made a truly memorable holiday. Waking up every morning to the rolling hills and the resident sheep was so refreshing and good for the soul. The welcome pack together with the Welsh Cakes ( first time I have tried these), was lovely, the interior decorations, the lanterns, wind up radio and dried flowers all added to this wonderful feeling of being wild and free!. The visits from Jack, the owners dog were lovely and he even joined us for our BBQ one evening. The firepit was such a fabulous addition to this already outstanding accommodation, and the hot tub relaxed all the muscles from the day spent walking, while star gazing into the night sky. The beautiful Elan Valley right on our doorstep with amazing off road trails and beautiful waterfalls will stay with us, and the holiday will be one that we shall be talking about for many years to come. I cannot wait to return.
