  • "Doe Lodge is the perfect accommodation for a short break away."

    Very clean and had everything you would need, and the views are even better than seen on the photos! Perfectly situated for lots of walks and exploring, or just sitting in the hot tub watching the birds of prey overhead!

  • "We had the most relaxing and enjoyable weekend, beautiful views and and the lodge was perfect for what we needed."

    The only negative I would have to mention is the level of cleanliness inside the lodge, it needs a deep clean, wouldnt put me off re booking however.

  • "We have just returned from a weekend at Doe Lodge with friends."

    We arrived on Friday evening and access to the property was easy and swift. It is set in beautiful countryside so is the ideal place to chill out and relax. The shower was nice and hot and the beds were comfy which made for a good nights sleep. The hot tub was lovely and hot and was the perfect way to chill in the evening. Claire from Cae Llwyn Breaks went above and beyond the call of duty to send me something back I had left in the accommodation which I am very grateful to her for. I would definitely recommend Doe Lodge and Cae Llwyn Breaks and I will hopefully be returning in the near future! Matt.
