We that is my bro and I found our stay to be very peaceful and awesome from the moment we arrived..
We have been to this holiday destination before but were in a different lodge this time. We were well impressed with everything and Hele was a very helpful host. We have booked again for next year so see you then Hele. Xxxxx
The lodge is fantastic and so cosy.. The perfect place for a chilly and often wet November. There were plenty of local walks and the hot tub was amazing to soak in afterwards. The owner even had the fire lit for our arrival which was very welcome especially as there was snow on the ground.
Mrs Dalley, November 2019
Had a week away with my partner at the bothy and it was the best.. Definitely a really good break away from day to day life. The cabin was cosy and amazing with all the features. John and Helen were the best. Very friendly people, can’t fault them. The views you get from the area are breath taking and the food they serve in nearby restaurants/pubs is amazing. Definitely will be returning. If you’re looking for a place with no noise and a peaceful environment, this is the place.
Mr Carr, September 2019
The cabin was just perfect, excellent attention to detail and there was everything you could ever need.. Really friendly welcome from the owner Hele and she was really lovely and easy to talk too! Couldn't have asked for anything more for our 10 year anniversary treat. Would definitely recommend and we will definitely be returning!
Miss Monks, September 2019
Nice log cabin with excellent views and surroundings.. On a working farm with chickens, rheas, cockerels and sheep. 5 year old loved feeding the chickens which the owner left feed for. Very welcoming and cabin has everything you need except a wardrobe and washing machine. The hot tub was clean and easy to use. This is a lovely log cabin in a wonderful location. My only gripe would be the inadequate shower and uncomfortable mattress. Expect flies but an electronic swatter is provided.
Mr Killough, August 2019
Wonderful relaxing place to stay.. Scenery, animals and hot tub excitement, would go again

Perfect holiday away with family..

We did enjoy the peaceful location. The hot tub was amazing. We will definitely be going again & have already recommended it to family & friends.

This cabin was lovely and the owner's were also lovely.. This is really home from home super cosy and excellent value for money. We highly recommend it to anyone looking to get away from it all! We've stayed in quite a few different cabins over the years and this was the most thought out one yet it's got some great personal touches. John and his family are such good people they made us feel at home. Definitely 5 star

This is a really comfortable cabin, a great retreat where the peace and hot tub eases your stress right away!

A great holiday, we would love to go again and we are only just returned!

The Bothy was amazing.. I had a wonderful three days, and my friends in Australia are very jealous of my photos. It was a fantastic cabin with everything I wanted.
A beautiful location, a hot tub under the stars which is amazing and a log fire to warm you after a Welsh summers day!
The pictures of the cabin did not do it enough credit. It was a delight in every respect. Fully equipped, comfortable and ideally situated. From the warm welcome from John on the day we arrived, via the evenings spent in the hot tub with a cold drink to the comfortable super king sized bed every aspect of the cabin ensured we had a truly enjoyable and fully satisfying holiday. Our grand daughter fell in love with Dave the friendly cockerel and fed the hens, guinea fowl and ducks every morning. John, George and Helen did all they could to ensure we had a great holiday and they succeeded in every respect. I would recommend it as a holiday destination to anyone and congratulate John and his team for a job well done. We would love to return and enjoy the hospitality once again.
Felt very welcome and it was a beautiful relaxing place. Excellent conditions and the cabin was perfect.
