“AN AMAZING RETREAT”
Reviewed 13 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

You can see from the photos that The George is something special. We have stayed in quite a few log cabins, and can honestly say that the spec here is vastly superior. Hele has decorated and furnished the interior beautifully. It really feels like home. Tea, coffee, sugar and milk were all provided, as were all the other essentials. There was a superb log-burning stove, which unfortunately we never got to use as the weather was so good. It must be very cosy and welcoming in the winter. We did feel that the provision of table/floor lamps would have been beneficial, as the high wall lights didn't give enough light to read by comfortably.

Outside, the approach road is very bumpy and could probably do with some gravel being added to fill in the pot holes. However, the uneven surface does make visitors drive extremely slowly, so at least the chickens and ducks are safe from "mad" drivers.

It was very enjoyable to be in the hot tub early in the morning and watch the mist roll up the valley before the sun broke through, and the valley seems to have its own pair of red kites which continually circled overhead.

We loved having the chickens and ducks calling to see if we had any titbits for them, We kept hens for many years and miss having them now. It was a real delight to sit at the outside table with Dave (the cockerel), curled up contentedly at our feet. We are not sure if this would suit everyone, however, and perhaps the verandah should be fully enclosed to prevent any of the chickens actually coming onto it, so the guests can enjoy them at a distance if they prefer.

The area around Bettws Cedwain is stunning. We couldn't find any signs for local footpaths,so had to go further afield. Walkers may find the lanes nearby intimidating, as they are narrow and twisty, with little or no verges, and the hedges on either side are very tall. A wonderful place to walk nearby is Gregynog Hall, a few miles away, where there are not only formal gardens, but many tracks through woodland and valleys with streams.

For golfers there is a super course at Lakeside Golf Club, between Newtown and Welshpool, and they also do great lunches there.

We wish the owners well with their plans for expansion and we hope all future visitors to The George have the same great weather as we did.
