Really really great place me and my partner enjoyed it a lot, it was so cosy and loved how the tv had Netflix haha. Really good customer service as they emailed me saying we could stay until 12 due to no one being in the pod that day unfortunately, I did miss that email as for some reason it went straight to my junk for some reason but I think it was a really kind gesture from them. We have also recommended it to about 10 people it was so good!!

Lovey stay over new year. The Pod was spotless and very modern.

Nice little hamper on arrival, the views were stunning even the torrential rain didn’t dampen our stay, really warm and cosy.

Hot tub was a real highlight.

The only thing I would add is more signs I got lost when leaving as I couldn’t remember the way I had come in so I think a few extra signs up would make it a bit easier.

Have already booked to return.

Just returned from the most stunning weekend ever! So gutted that it’s over. The pod was absolutely perfect for what we wanted, cozy and plenty space. The hot tub was great and we spent lots of time in there looking out at the gorgeous views. Lovely addition of the Smart TV so we could cozy up and watch Netflix after a lovely day of exploring Lake Vyrnwy (A must visit!) The area is definitely on the remote side with not much around in terms of shops/restaurants however for a peaceful and idyllic getaway this is definitely the place to come! Would definitely return and have already been recommending to friends!

We loved our stay at this beautiful pod. It was the perfect location to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Peaceful and a great place to rest as well as lots to do near by. The views and birdsong are incredible and I loved having breakfast with a view (including the nearby sheep!) The hot tub was perfect and private. The pod has such lovely touches, such as a welcome basket, parasol, firewood and citronella candle. I loved the washing line and pegs to dry our towels after a dip. We would totally recommend and it’s on our list to visit again.

Perfect getaway.
I booked this with my best friend to celebrate my birthday.
As with anywhere you go, there is always that scepticism about whether it would be the same as the photos.
I have to say we were blown away.
Not only was it just like the photos, it was even better.
The views spectacular.
The bed so comfortable. And the hot tub…amazing.
Even the welcome gifts of Welsh cakes and lemonade were such a thoughtful touch.
I will 100% recommend this place to anyone that wants to get away from the noise of ‘normal’ life.
Thank you for sharing this part of Wales.
