Holiday chalets in Powys
Builth Wells chalet
3 bedrooms • 1 bathroom • sleeps 4
“Wonderful Family Break” We have just returned from a 4 night stay and enjoyed every minute. The lodge is in an excellent location within the Caer Beris Holiday Park, which is very quiet and peaceful. The lodge is 2 beds and not 3 as stated in the description. It is well equipped, clean and comfortable. The decking is secure, so excellent for dogs and children. We loved watching the wildlife (rabbits, birds and bats). If you go over the bridge to the manor and follow the path there is a small field for your dogs to run free if you wish. Builth Wells town is a shortish walk away, and I would recommend going via the river walk (this is much flatter than the steep walk up hill on return to the site). Builth Wells has everything you need to stock up on essentials should you run out of anything (we pre-ordered our shopping with Tesco beforehand which was delivered to the lodge). There are plenty of shops, pubs/restaurants, cafes, takeaways and a park for the little ones too. We will be returning to this site as it is a great base for exploring mid wales and not too far to visit the coast either. Next time we would need to go for a 3 bed lodge due to the children growing up and needing their own space. However, the hubby and I would definitely re-book this lodge for a cheeky break away together
Llanrhaeadr ym Mochnant chalet

“Idyllic Retreat” We loved the location of this sweet chalet. The peaceful and pretty garden felt private but with the hosts a step away for any issues. Sitting by the river just watching it tumble away was so relaxing. We found it well equipped with the nice touch of extra dvds, games and book to read. The chalet was clean and the hosts welcoming. As with many non brick buildings especially with the proximity to the river - fabrics can feel damp but a good blast of heating soon sorts that. The village has several shops and a fish and chip shop. Everywhere you drive is stunning and you do need to drive but the journeys are an adventure in itself. As Mum and two children we were out everyday and there are lots of places to visit and enjoy - Portmeirion, Harlech Castle and Barmouth, Dolweddyn Castle, Swallow Falls, Llanberis Lake Railway and The Slate Museum - fantastic museum and free! Langollen, Plas Newydd House, a canal trip over the World Heritage Site Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and The British Ironworks Centre on the way home at Oswestry. Our only complaint would be that Cally the dog and Black Cat didn't come and visit us! Oh and a new toilet brush! Thank you guys!
