Fantastic place 4.8/5

Had a fantastic stay, the only two things I would mention is it would be good to have a lock on the bathroom door and electric car charging points would be a benefit for a future stay.

Great property 5/5

Lovely property. Garden was very secure for the dog and the area was very quiet. We would definitely recommend.

Jemma Pereira | 21 September 2023

Beautiful place to visit 5/5

We stayed at bluebell pod and the place was spotless, they provided alot 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.

Catherine O'Callaghan | 12 September 2023

Wonderful stay in a fabulous place 5/5

I stayed here with my two grandsons (12 and 15) and my 2 miniature dachshunds. Situated a few miles from Rhayader. The pod was beautiful and really well equipped. Loved the hot tub and it was reassuring to have a secure garden area for the dogs. Would have liked the grass to have been cut before we arrived as it was quite long, especially for my dogs little legs, but it was cut on day 2. Will definitely return soon

Jill Colley | 05 August 2023

Stunning location and property 5/5

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.

Sarah Camish | 08 July 2023
