We stayed at Bluebell pod and the place was spotless, they provided a lot of essentials, eg. Towels, tea, coffee, milk etc. It’s the little things that count in my opinion, which made a difference. The views are beautiful, especially from the hot tub. I would highly recommend and will be visiting again.

Absolutely lovely part of wales to visit, lots of great walks just a short drive away at Gilfach Nature Reserve, Elan Valley, Devil’s Bridge and Hafren Forest. It was great to have the hot tub after a long hike and relax with the views of the valley and the sound of sheep. The property was a lovely size for the two of us and our dog who loved the enclosed garden. Would recommend and would definitely stay again.
