What a perfect getaway at a lovely secluded location. House was very clean and had everything you need included. Come from a 5 hour drive to this beautiful house which already had the essentials.. tea, coffee, milk, eggs, breads and some treats. The bed was so very comfy and it was lovely waking up to the sounds of the birds and the distant sounds of the sheep. some times I would wake up early in the morning and hear the barn owl outside the window. We explored every day from the local village to all the way to Snowdonia. defiantly go to Breacon National Park. We went to the Carreg castle which has it's own dungeon! superb views. then we walked down the hill to the water lake. We did go to the Beach. IT was called New Quay, which is one of the most prettiest towns that I've been too. really nice sitting on the beautiful beach eating chips and having ice cream.We went on a steam train and got to stand outside whilst the train was moving, just like the movies! there was so much to see and do and only wished we stayed longer as we wanted to go to the mines which we only read about on the last day! also wanted to go visit the dinosaur museum. I hope to visit it again one day.

“The perfect house, in the perfect setting, with perfect service throughout”
Reviewed 2 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This was our first holiday as a blended family, us two and our 5x kids (ages 4, 7, 10, 14 & 16)...Speaking for myself and the whole family, the cottage and holiday was perfect. There was absolutely nothing we can criticise.

We really appreciated the little touches, the fact that absolutely everything was catered for, which meant that we didn't have to bring anything except for food and ourselves. We also valued the high quality finishes throughout and the high end white goods.

It was large enough for everyone to lose themselves in this spacious and beautifully finished house, yet we did not sense that it had lost that cosy/homely feeling.

The grounds are idyllic, with bird feeders (mounds of birdseed freely available in the back shed and feeding encouraged!) teaming with the local wildlife and the Breacon Beacons is a stones throw away.

I could go on and on about this place! Needless to say, this is a holiday that we will never forget, the cottage exceeded our expectations and overall has made us fall in love with Wales!

“Wow - Amazing Home-From-Home!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a wonderful week at Henllys Lodge, it is a truly fabulous holiday home-from-home! It had simply everything we wanted, & has been beautifully completed, it really is stunning. We played badminton in the wonderfully spacious garden. There is nothing we would recommend to change - the beautiful hand soap & shampoo/shower gel provided in each bathroom were great touches, as was the very tasty welcome basket.

The housekeeper who met us was very welcoming and helpful, and explained things very clearly. The games cupboard was very well stocked, & the table football was brilliant :-)!

All in all, a fabulous holiday - we will be back!

“Wonderful , stylish and every need met!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We were met at the property on our arrival by the very friendly housekeeper. He showed us how to use all the appliances in the property which was very useful.! There was a very generous welcome pack of lots of local produce which we all enjoyed throughout our stay. The lodge is beautifully presented and a pleasure to stay in.
Thank you so much for sharing your Welsh get a way with us.

“Will come back again!”
Reviewed 22 December 2013 for a stay in October 2013

A late review for our second stay this year, May & October.

We just love this house & the surrounding area & we know we will be back again.

The dealings with regard to the booking were sorted easily & as usual Ralph was there to welcome us on our arrival.

The house is perfect for a family of four adults like us, or a family with children.

Lots to do in the surrounding area, & lovely places to eat too.

Can certainly say, if you are thinking of coming here then do so!
