Having previously stayed at Lily, we already knew we loved the location and that there are amazing views all around so we decided to try Dafodil, mainly because our two dogs are now getting much bigger! Dafodil was as expected – just wonderful! Lots of space with a fairly large secure garden for the dogs. The hot tub is a treat and the cabin is cosy and calming. We wouldn’t change anything about it. This was our third visit and as we have very busy lives, this is the perfect place to switch off and relax, with pubs and shops just a short drive away.
We also recommend visiting Elan Valley… wow! Stunning views and you can walk for miles!
Thank you again, for another perfect stay. We will certainly be back!

We had such a lovely stay at Daffodil! The pod was perfect, lovely and warm and had everything we needed. The hot tub was an added bonus and was lovely to relax in after some lovely scenic walks (Elan Valley and the drive through the mountains is a must) family friendly, my son (8) and our pup loved it! Great space around the pod that’s secure and gated so the dog could have a run around. We honestly couldn’t fault anything, thank you so much and we can’t wait to come back ☺️

Thank you for a wonderful holiday. We really enjoyed our stay at Daffodil. We wish we could of stayed a little longer. Our sausage dog, Louie loved playing with his ball in the enclosed garden and we enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub after a day exploring. The fresh milk in the fridge when we arrived was an added bonus. We will definitely be returning.
