"Very lovely cottage with everything we needed for an excellent holiday."

The cottage was excellent, well presented and had everything we needed for our group of 15 including 6 small children. It was a shame we couldn't use the pool due to the weather but the hot tub more than compensated for that. We thought the cottage would be in the middle of nowhere (as per the picture) but it's not. We quickly adjusted though and had a wonderful time. Thanks Mary.

"An expensive place in the country"

The Lodge took 14+ but this would have been pushing it a bit as the bedrooms were mainly small or dormitory type and it involved the use of sofa beds downstairs. The living rooms were a good size and comfortable. Six of us were down for a Christening, so we had plenty of visitors. You needed a car to get around or to the nearest station but it was set in beautiful country, ideal for walks - and golf. The price was very high for a weekend stay - almost double what was quoted on the website - and the deposit was high too, and slow to be returned. The explanation given was that it cost £350 to clean the place after each visit. We found this hard to believe. Overall we enjoyed our visit.

"Great Base for Cardiff"

The pictures of this lodge do not do it justice. On arrival, every one of our party of 12 was incredibly impressed by this lodge. Plenty of space to socialise in the kitchen (as tends to be the norm i… More

"A weekend at Hafod Lodge."

This is a really lovely property, perfect for a family house party weekend if your own home isn't big enough for 15 -20 guests. As it is very homely with an attractive kitchen and appliances it is easy to host as if you were at home. Everything was well presented inside, the grounds are pretty, though the pool is unheated so a no go really with our weather! The rental part was also smooth and easy.
