"Beautiful log cabin with amazing views."
Totally chilled weekend celebrating mam’s birthday. Everything was top notch. Diolch yn fawr xx
"Our stay at the Bryn Eiddon was so enjoyable and will leave us with wonderful memories."
The property was made so welcoming by the owners with special touches that we really appreciated. To wake up every day and see the amazing views from the lodge felt such a privilege, it’s such a beautiful place. Was also an ideal location to take our dog for walks right from the lodge. As we stayed late Oct/Nov we wondered if the lodge may be a bit cold, but this wasn’t the case it was extremely cosy. We couldn’t recommend the Bryn Eiddon enough and can’t wait to visit again!
"Beautiful cabin, everything you needed."
Superb location and fabulous views. Hot tub was great. Would definitely visit again.
"Superb cabin in a beautiful location."
Cabin was spotless when we arrived and all equipment is like new . Hot tub was lovely and hot and perfect for watching the clouds drift by being undercover was a bonus for when it rains. Only negative( or positive to some)was zero phone signal on EE and Vodafone but this is beyond owners control.
"WHAT A VEIW"
"Our stay was amazing and what a beautiful place!"
Exactly as stated on the website, but the views cannot be done justice in the photographs. Absolutely stunning. The lodge has been very well thought out and it is well equipped with a good sized fridge/freezer - which is rare! The only slight negative for me, personally, was that I found the double bed was too hard and I'm used to memory foam pillows, which these weren't. However, this is only my personal preference and I state this only because I knocked one smiley face off the "comfort" review. I would certainly recommend this location to anyone looking for a peaceful, Country get away with a great hot tub! We were lucky enough to stay whilst the weather was gloriously hot and sunny. I took a comfortable camping chair with me to enjoy being outside, which was a good decision, as the only furniture on the outside decking is wooden. If you are lucky enough to have great weather, I would recommend taking comfortable outdoor sun beds and chairs to make the most of the amazing views outside. I would like to thank Bethan and family for a wonderful stay! We would love to return!
"This is the 2nd time we’ve stayed at Bryn Eiddon and probably not the last."
We were blessed with the fantastic weather last year but not so lucky this year! Nevertheless, our stay was just magical once more and the weather did not stop us doing what we wanted to do as we’re quite outdoorsy people. However, what’s truly magical about the place is its location. I was born and bred in Wales but I was never lucky enough to witness the view that you wake up to every morning at Bryn Eiddon, it’s truly stunning, with sheep grazing only a few feet away from you. No camera in the world can do it justice and you simply have to be there to experience it. I felt really homesick driving home to Stafford yesterday after spending a week at such a stunning lodge with even more stunning views. All of my friends are completely envious when I show them photos of this incredible place. I shall definitely be returning.
"We have just had a wonderful week in Wales, going back to the cabin after a full day of activities was so peaceful and relaxing."
It was SO clean and had everything you need and more. The owners were in touch with any problems. What a beautiful place with only sheep and cows for neighbours. If you want to get away from it all it is the perfect place and still just 10 minutes (driving) from the town.
"Lovely cabin with everything needed in a magnificent location."
"We had a wonderful time during the Whitsun half term break at Bryn Eiddon Log Cabin."
We enjoyed spending time at the beach, walking along beautiful paths, and relaxing in the hot tub while gazing at the stunning view. This was exactly what we needed and we look forward to returning soon.
"Beautiful place with absolutely everything you need for a peaceful, relaxing break."
"We had a lovely relaxing week, the cabin has everything you need, The hot tub ..."
We had a lovely relaxing week, the cabin has everything you need, The hot tub with the stunning views & the little lambs & the Red kites flying around everyday was Amazing, would love to visit again, highly recommend
"Amazing log cabin would highly recommend."
It doesn’t get better than this! Thank you
"Excellant log cabin."
Brilliant views, lovely hot tub made for a perfect week away. Cottage was immaculate and everything as described. Perfect.
"A fantastic property in a beautifully peaceful location ."
The owners were exceptionally friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended
"A wonderful remote log cabin."
Perfect for getting away to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery and walks. Great facilities and within easy reach of lovely beaches other sightseeing if you want too.
"Our break in this beautiful lodge was absolutely perfect from start to finish."
The lodge had everything you needed & more, the perfect location for a romantic or family holiday away with beautiful mountains when you wake & stunning while sat in the hot tub. Such clean accommodation. Extremely welcoming & friendly. The owners are so lovely & helpful & make your holiday a dream come true. We have had many breaks away & this is the best by far. Thankyou so much
"The cabin and facilities are exceptional, what we didn't expect was the stunningly beautiful nature of the location and area in which it is situated."
This part of Wales is not well know, the property owners should promote that more.
"Cabin is in a beautiful spot with fantastic views, well equipped and very comfortable, great place to just relax."
"This was an amazing lodge, perfect for the relaxing break we needed."
Our dog Luna loved looking at the sheep and them back at her, hilarious!! Would love to visit again, the scenery is amazing.
"Absolutely beautiful location, the perfect break if you’re looking to unwind and relax away from the everyday."
We would sell our house and move in to Bryn Eiddon cabin in a heartbeat!!
"The cabin was very clean and spacious."
It has everything you need to make a relaxing time perfect. From sunset watching in the hot tub to a log burning stove in the evening. The owners were very helpful. I couldn't recommend this secluded little getaway enough.
"The cleanliness of the property was fantastic, the cleanest place I have ever stayed at."
The views were also spectacular. The hot tub ( which I was a bit indifferent before we went) was fabulous. If the weather had been nicer and we were eating more meals outside I would have preferred chairs with a back instead of the picnic table ( but I do suffer from a bad back). But overall the place, views, area, beds, sheep were all amazing!!!! Would not hesitate to recommend. X
"Excellent place for quiet holidays."
Stunning views. Truly recommended. Hosts are kind and helpful. Log cabin is amazing, location same. Can't see single thing which I didn't like.
"Beautiful property with stunning views."
The Prosecco on arrival was a lovely touch. The cabin was spotless and in a great position for exploring the area. We really enjoyed the hot tub and the view from it was great. I can’t really fault this place! Bethan the owner was very helpful. Lovely walks at the back of the cabin too!
"You MUST stay at this cabin."
A hot tub with a view to die for, a cabin perfectly clean on arrival in a part of Wales that will blow you away with how stunning it is, and owners who couldn’t be more helpful. We just returned today & are already looking at booking again.. Thanks Bethan & family.. Mike, Kate, Ollie, Abbie from Cotswolds
"There was mould in the bathroom and the hot tub was not functioning as it ..."
There was mould in the bathroom and the hot tub was not functioning as it should, probably the filter wasn’t even working properly as the water was becoming very foamy and cloudy, despite having a shower and cleaning before getting in the tub Check out time could have been flexible
We did put a request to Sykes to not let you stay in our property again after the awful mess you had left the first time you stayed, As for mould in the bathroom it was dirt that was certainly not there before you arrived, the hot tub is working perfectly fine, Property Owner
"The cabin was a lovely place to stay with beautiful views."
I think for the price and general feel of it being a luxury cabin a few extras would be very helpful and welcome - additional towels for hot tub, soaps etc (rather than nearly empty carex) etc.
Thank you for your review, but if you had looked under the kitchen sink we always leave 2 extra carex for your use, Property Owner
"The cabin is just perfect, facilities,comfort and the views."
Amazing . Loved our week.
"It is hard to believe that this cabin is not brand new for the season!"
It is immaculate and has a fantastic position which is both convenient and private, not an easy thing to achieve. We wanted a complete rest and chill week and managed that with this cabin, we spent time visiting the surrounding areas but also a lot of time in the cabin and found the layout worked really well, both inside and out. The hot tub is the best position we have ever had for a tub and truly provided panoramic views with the added benefit of red kites soaring the skies overhead. A great place to unwind. The owners could not have been more helpful so full marks. We will be back
"Very good comfortable property."
Light and airy. Totally secure garden for dog. Extremely large comfortable bed. Hot tub a great asset. Large decking area ( sun loungers would have been nice) to enjoy the amazing views. Highly recommended, would stay again.
"I really enjoyed my stay at Bryn Eiddon and found it to be a lovely cabin that was comfortable and well equipped."
The location is lovely and the views around the mountains is stunning. A couple of things I would say about the cabin is that people may not get a mobile signal in the cabin. I had to go a mile down the road to get a signal. Netflix services were intermittent with buffering - so watching a film could be frustrating. Bryn Eiddon stands on it's own grounds but I wouldn't describe it as secluded as it's on a road which is frequently used for bike club outings and can be quite noisy. Also advise holiday makers of any delivery services that might be available from super markets etc. Suggested improvements: Provide a slip mat for the shower, a shelf in the bathroom, a coat-hook for the bathroom and a toilet roll holder. Provide loungers for the patio instead of a bench seat.
"Fantastic lodge in stunning surroundings."
The lodge is secluded from other properties. There was everything that you needed - a real getaway from it all place. Mobile signal is not great (but I understand that a new phone mast will be erected soon). WiFi in the property was very good. Excellent host.
"Superb cottage - furnished to a high standard."
Very accessible and welcoming host.
"Fantastic immaculate property, amazing location."
Bethen is super helpful and responds quickly to texts. The walks are great and lots of beautiful spots to visit. Highly recommended.
"Bryn Eiddon is a great property which we would highly recommend."
The views are amazing and the cabin is well equipped with all you need for a great holiday. The owners are really lovely ,friendly people and it was a pleasure to meet them. We hope to return soon!
"Absolutely wonderful experience."
Easy to find, clean & tidy on arrival, no evidence of pets at all. We wanted for nothing as the cabin is fully equipped. Hostess dropped by to check if all was ok and say hello, lovely touch. Stunning location to disconnect and reset. Let your eyes relax onto the far reaching views and take in the local wildlife and allow your mind to wander..... Lots of walks right out the door and great to relax by the fire or in the hot-tub after a few hours hiking. Could easily recommend to family & friends as it was a pleasure to be there. Thank you Bethan. x
"We loved staying here."
The cottage was well equipped and presented. It is completely private and secluded. We were a bit concerned that most cottages imply this but actually they're right next to another property, but not here. Such a relaxing location. We'll be back!
"Bryn Eiddon is pure magic."
We had the best weeks holiday here. The views are incredible, the property was the cleanest holiday rental we've ever stayed in. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and a pleasure to cook in. Bethan the owner is lovely, very friendly and helpful and left us a nice bottle of prosecco. Watching the sunset from the hot tub and then stargazing in a perfect dark sky. Seeing tiny newborn lambs curled up right on your fence line when you open the blinds in the morning. Red kites and buzzards flying so low overhead you can see their colours clearly, all perfect memories of our time here. A few things to be aware of, the internet can be a little unreliable for Netflix etc but great for browsing. We managed a WhatsApp video call with our son on my husbands Birthday but neither of us had any phone signal. We kept our dog on a long lead when in the garden, we didn't want him getting excited by the sheep and causing any distress. We would love to return one day and totally recommend this place for a romantic and perfectly secluded holiday.
"Our holiday experience was exactly as advertised - secluded, cozy and with a generous touch of luxury."
Would definitely stay again.
"Absolutely stunning log cabin!"
!!! So clean, and catered for every need. Super comfy bed, amazing power shower, underfloor heating, log burner, hot tub, views to die for!!! We couldn’t have asked for a better place, so chilled and wonderful walks from all directions. Bethan was so lovely and sorted us out more logs, very informative about walks and area. We will be most definitely back!!!!
"There is only one negative remark is that in the winter Months check in time should be earlier, before dark, as finding the property was very difficult to find as the mountain road was very dark foggy & narrow."
"We booked 5 nights at Bryn Eiddon for our honeymoon."
It was perfect in every way. So peaceful, tranquil and relaxing. The views were stunning and we had some beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Beth was really lovely, she was on hand if there was anything we needed, but we didn't need a thing! This place exceeded on every level. We can't wait to come again and have already recommended to friends. The log cabin is so stunning, you will not be disappointed. The hot tub was fab, great log burner, it was so cosy and comfortable and spacious. We stayed with our 12 year old son who is a full time wheelchair user and our little dog Buddy. Waking up in the morning and watching the sun rise from your bed, and the sheep grazing, was so nice. Totally perfect for a get away from it all break I breathtaking surroundings. It was really romantic.
"Absolutely loved our stay, just wished it was longer!"
Brought my parents, who are in their 80s who loved the warmth and comfort of the log cabin and of course the stunning views! Having everything all on one level, so was perfect for them and made everything easy. The place was equipped with everything we needed, my only suggestion would be to have a few hooks on backs of doors, but just a small suggestion cos it was brilliant in everyway! Thanks for a brilliant stay. My parents are asking when they can come again!
"Really lovely cabin in a quiet, pretty location."
Walks located right on the doorstep, very friendly owners who were very accommodating and welcoming. Will definitely return!
"Couldn’t fault this log cabin."
It was clean, secluded and we enjoyed a lovely week away with beautiful surroundings and staying in a luxurious cabin. Would definitely recommend.
"We had a wonderful stay at the log cabin."
We had absolutely everything we needed. It was clean, comfortable and cosy. Amazing views from every window. Extremely dog friendly with a large, secure garden for our four legged friend. Walks straight from the door and an ideal location for exploring further afield. Bethan was very helpful and friendly, but not at all intrusive, a perfect host. The log burner and hot tub really added a touch of luxury. We would not hesitate to recommend this property and definitely plan to return.
"Best place we've ever stayed in UK (if not anywhere)."
The lodge is perfectly laid out and really well equipped. The scenery was stunning and lovely area to visit. Being surrounded by the sheep and working farms is a lovely experience. Bethan was very friendly and accommodating. We'll definitely be coming back
"Fantastic experience with both Sykes and the owners of the property."
The property is perfect, even better than the pictures show. Thank you to Bethan and the team for making us feel so welcome.
"The cabin & location was fantastic, clean with all mod cons."
Views to die for & peace & quiet. Bethan the host was lovely & could not be more helpful. Would recommend this stay for anyone wanting a peaceful break away from it all.
"The lodge was very clean, comfortable and well equipped."
Peaceful location with stunning views. Very friendly and helpful hosts. Great destination, we thoroughly recommend.
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bryn Eiddon Log Cabin - it is in an excellent location, surrounded by stunning scenery, ideal for exploring mid-Wales and the southern part of Snowdonia."
The facilities were very good - the hot tub was very welcome after climbing Cader Idris, the beds were very firm and everything was very clean and tidy. The only negative was that the wireless connection was a little slow, however, this did not bother us. We would highly recommend this accommodation.
"We had the most amazing time."
The place is private and peaceful. We will most certainly be back. Thank you very much.
"A beautiful lodge - very well equipped - views to die for and the owners were very welcoming and helpful - we had a fantastic week."
"If you want a peaceful stay then this is the place for you."
Lovely and quiet with fantastic views
"The cabin is lovely."
There are views of the valley and farmland from every window. The garden is secure for the dogs. The owner Bethan was friendly and helpful; she made helpful recommendations for local walks. We had a wonderful time!
"The perfect escape."
This was our first time to mid wales so we didn't have a clue what it was going to be like. It exceeded our expectations and more. Bethan was so amazing and helpful so glad we picked Bryn Eiddon Log Cabin for our stay. We stayed for 7 nights and didn't want to leave. It is amazing waking up in the morning and seeing the sheep in the field. Our dog Willow loved the cabin and had a lot of space outside to run around. The cabin itself is so spacious and clean and having a hot tub looking out to the mountains was like you were in your own little haven. 100% will be booking again. Thank you
"Loved it so much we have booked to go again!"
Beautifully presented, cosy and amazing views from the hot tub.
Really high quality accommodation, views were spectacular (especially from the hot tub) and the amenities were a nice extra touch. Great to have a visit from the owner who was really friendly and helpful. Would definitely come back. Thank you!!
"Stunning location, beautiful Cabin."
Will definitely book again.
"What a gorgeous log cabin!"
We had the most relaxing time away. The cabin is warm and cozy, with beautiful big windows and a gorgeous fire place. The views from the hot tub are dreamy and it felt like there was no one around, which was perfect. Bethan was a wonderful host and we are already eager to come back!
"Our log cabin was so clean, warm and cosy."
It was well equipt and had everything we could need. Loved the real fire and the hot tub, but best bit was the stunning views and being surrounded by sheep and cows. This place is so secluded and relaxing. Bethan the owner was very welcoming, helpful and kind. This was a great base for exploring Wales. Had I known this was a farm beforehand I may have chosen not to come as being vegetarian and caring so much for animal welfare I felt a sense of sadness watching some of the animals. I can't deny though it is a wonderful beautiful place and we had an amazing time
"Superb Wooden Lodge accommodation!"
It has a very high standard of furnishings and is very well equipped. The underfloor heating works like a dream and the hot tub is hot and spacious (and emptied and cleaned for each guest booking). The views are stunning and it is a wonderful tranquil retreat.

"Bryn Eiddon is a lovely log cabin in a beautiful and secluded location."
It was fabulous to relax in the hot tub and take in the gorgeous views all around. The cabin was spotlessly clean and Bethan the owner of the cabin was very friendly and on hand to help with any questions. We returned from our holiday feeling thoroughly refreshed and would definitely love to visit again in the future.
"The log cabin was beautiful and the view from the hot tub was amazing Bethan Was ..."
The log cabin was beautiful and the view from the hot tub was amazing Bethan Was so welcoming,my partner &me had the most amazing bank holiday away and look forward to returning soon
"We have just had the best family holiday at Bryn Eiddon."
The lodge, hot tub and views are amazing!! We visited a few different beaches in the area where we could go crabbing and enjoy the seaside. The owner came to visit us to welcome us and to say goodbye, this was a lovely personal touch. Utterly amazing will definitely be returning.
"Beautiful cottage and lovely peaceful environment."
Bethan, the owner, was extremely friendly and helpful and went above and beyond to make our stay excellent. We would happily return.
"Lovely cabin, great host."
Location was okay, not lots around the area but we did find a beautiful coast as recommended by the host.
"A lovely and peaceful stay ."
. mountains were breath taking .. log cabin was outstanding.. we all enjoyed the hot tube and will definitely be staying again .
"Had a great long weekend at Bryn Eiddon log cabin!"
We will definitely be visiting again!
"Our stay at the Bryn Eiddon log cabin was brilliant."
Bethan welcomed us as we arrived and made the cabin feel like home. The underfloor heating and wood burner keeps the whole place warm and cosy even through the worst of storm ciara!! The hot tub is also an amazing addition over-looking nothing but hills and sheep. Would definitely recommend.
"The cabin was amazing, simple beautiful & so peaceful."
we will be back
"Had a wonderful week at Bryn Eiddon Log Cabin, the cabin was very warm and comfortable, didn't need to use the log fire as we got too warm when we lit it."
My husband enjoyed the hot tub a lot, he's now trying to convince me that we need one at home. The kitchen had everything we needed and with an abundance of Christmas food to eat we made good use of it. The location was superb we particularly enjoyed the company of our neighbours in the field, the sheep, and got very excited when a little lamb appeared on the Thursday morning. Although we didn't do as much walking as i'd have liked we still found lots to do locally, despite it being the beginning of January and a lot of places were closed. we would most definitely use the cabin again and have already recommended it to family.
"Amazing log cabin, very big and comfortable."
Excellent facilities, perfect location for total relaxation. Very peaceful without any noise from anything. Surrounded by nature only, no even single building within half a mile at least. Perfect place to recharge the batterys. We loved it every minute in this place. The host lady was very friendly and helpful too. We will definitely go there again and will recomend to all our friends.
"What a wonderful time we had here!"
The owners were so helpful and went above and beyond. The lodge is spectacular, the views are amazing, sheep a throwing distance away from the windows, hot tub in the stars was glorious, walks from your door. Beds really comfy, everything you need in the kitchen if your not planning on leaving, log fire was so cosy, all facilities were spotless. It is honestly such a lovely place to make happy memories...10 stars from us! Thank you xx
