    The place was beautiful and the views were amazing

  • "Pro's: Great Location/ Not overlooked/ Good heating system/ Wonderful Views/ Great for the dogs/ Great placefor peace and quiet."

    Cons: No welcome pack with nearest shop 8 miles away/ No tourist information on local walks or places of interest/ Advertisedas "Luxury" there was no soap, shampoo etc. provided/ The bedding, although clean was not very nice and the duvet cover was well worn and not ironed.

  • "I think providing trolleys from the car park would be helpful."

    The lodge is adequate but a lot of basic info & amenities are missing; pillow & mattress protectors, there are stains on the mattress and the pillows. There is mold up the curtains and along the window frames. The sofa is unclean, previously had dogs on it, (Dog hair is still on it / within the fibres and on the bedding.) The lodge smelt dirty - doggy just not clean. The cleaning staff maybe just aren't thorough enough. It has massive potential but we would not return as however beautiful the views are, the lodge/cleanliness needs more attention.

    Beautiful clean and relaxing place to stay, really good kitchen facilities and wonderful hot tub!

  • "Amazing stay at this lodge with amazing views!"

    Was spotless when we arrived but only thing was the hot tub did take a good 7 hours for it to properly heat up so you would have to be there all day constantly checking and only enough wood to heat up once! Other than that was a lovely stay.

  • "Very practical place - no frills."

    Very disappointed that although it had a hot tub during the winter ie Valentines Day -; it actually took 7 hours to heat up with logs we had to pay extra in advance - not good! We were there for a week but never attempted a hot tub again! Just a little less than expected. We won’t come back or recommend.

  • "Overall, the property was great and we had a lovely stay."

    The location is perfect and nice and peaceful. Plenty to do in the area, or equally a nice place to chill out (would be brilliant in nicer weather) on the large decking area. A couple of negatives for me were: oven needed a really good clean, shower tray filled with water (plug/drain probably just needs unclogging), there seemed to be some kind of toilet leak as when I went into the bathroom the morning after our first night there was water on the floor behind the toilet. Also the door could be hard for some people to open/shut - it did need a bit of force. We were already aware of how long wood-fired hot tubs take to heat up but for people who aren't, they should be made more aware of the fact it takes around 4 hours to heat up.

  • "The area is perfect with shops and a small village only 7mins away!"

    The lodge has beautiful views and is very pretty. The lodge was clean but not up to current standards and no cleaning products were provided apart from washing up liquid. We did not manage to use the hot tub as it took hours (4) and was then only slightly warm - i wouldn’t book a place with a log burner hot tub again as it is a lot of work when you are supposed to be relaxing on holiday.

  • "This was a beautiful place with stunning views."

    Absolutely perfect. However, the cleanliness when we got there slightly let it down. The log burner hot tub uses a lot of logs but was amazing once we managed to heat it up. Could not have asked for a better location.

    Cabin fantastic everything you need in it. Far enough away from the main stream to relax in your own part of the Welsh valleys. Hot tub was amazing for the views.

    Helpful hosts. Minor niggles were make up or blood stains on duvet cover. Could have done with more kitchen ware. A welcome basket would add that extra star.

    It was perfect. Our dog absolutely loved pottering around and watching the pheasants and cows. It was truest a great place. Quiet and relaxing, the scenery was fantastic.

  • "The standard of cleaning in the room was well below an acceptable standard."

    The welcome pack stated the room had been cleaned to a high standard due to COVID 19. This was not the case the bed and the couch had not been cleaned underneath and was absolutely filthy,the cupboards were visibly dirty and the freezer had food in from the previous people. The scenery was lovely but my weekend was ruined as I had to clean up when I arrived. Also I don’t recommend a wood fired hot tub was a lot of hard work to keep the water warm.
