Stunning Pod! 4.8/5

We had such a lovely time at this pod! It’s exactly what we hoped for and what’s in the pictures. You are pretty far away from the other pods, which is means it’s very private, and it’s set in the beautiful countryside. Such a relaxing weekend with stunning views and the hot tub certainly helped! Will definitely be coming back.

Amazing location and set up for us, accommodating for 2 adults, a baby and large dog. Beautiful views. Hot tub was a lovely touch to relax in the evenings. Cwm Hapus had everything we needed. We recommend going for food in the Dolfor inn.

Perfect! 5/5

We stayed for 3 nights and the pod is gorgeous. The hot tub was lovely and situated in with a stunning view. The little note, tea cakes and chocolates for the kids was a lovely touch. I would definitely stay again (without the children) so we could make the most of the walks and the fact it’s very rural.

Beautiful relaxing stay 5/5

We were lucky to have a last minute stay at Cwm Hapus, and we’re so happy that we nabbed it. What a lovely, clean, peaceful and welcoming place. The pod was immaculate, and we couldn’t believe how good the facilities were. We all loved the hot tub, and which again was immaculate. Will definitely be looking to stay again. Diolch

Highly recommend A***** 5/5

What a wonderful place to stay. Location is perfect!!! Lovely quiet area for total relaxation. The pod was spotlessly clean and well equipped for all our needs. Hot tub was amazing and we loved the fire pit outside. The area was totally enclosed for our dog to run round. We met the owner Rhian who was lovely too. Highly recommend!!! Can’t wait to stay there again. Thank you

Louise Bennetta | 05 August 2023

Amazing stay! 5/5

The accommodation was spotless and modern. Cwm Hapus had everything we could possibly need for our stay. We loved that each accommodation was securely fenced so the dog was able to wander around without checking where she she was. The location is stunning, surrounding by beautiful hills. Which makes it feel extra special when in the hot tub. We ordered a couple of hampers for our stay and they did not disappoint, well worth the money. Would highly recommend staying here, we will be back to try out the styles of accommodation.

Laura Mckinnon | 06 June 2023

We were looking for a quiet remote place to get away from busy life, and this was a perfect setting 5/5

The shepherd’s was in an ideal setting for a relaxing break. The countryside is beautiful, and the hut had everything we needed for a mini break. It was perfect for myself my husband and our dog. I think it might be a little small for more though.

Adrian Turner | 30 May 2023

excellent start to married life.. 5/5

I booked Cwm Hapus for a remote mini-moon following our wedding and it did not disappoint. On arrival, we were welcomed by the breathtaking views, balloons and a banner in the pod; a beautiful and personal touch. Whilst the pod is situated in a small and quiet village, there are plenty of places to explore on foot / short drive: Ludlow, Clun, Montgomery etc. We will definitely be booking another break, and we would highly recommend the same to anyone looking for a short / quiet break away.

Cerys Bibey | 24 May 2023

Amazing weekend 5/5

We had an amazing weekend here accommodation is lovely clean and comfortable and the area so peaceful and quiet, very relaxing would 100% recommend to others

Amy Arnold | 02 May 2023

A weekend chill 5/5

We stayed at Cwm Hapus in February with our two young daughters! There was a highchair readily available and a travel cot too! There was an added touch of two mini chocolate bars for the girls to enjoy, which we were very greatful for The pod was just what we needed! The fact that it's totally fenced in gave us peace of mind and we were able to totally relax while the girls were out on their bikes! The added touch was the all the information provided in the welcome book, local takeaways, days out, pubs, doctors, dentists, chemists, it was all there and super helpful! We would not hesitate to return in the future it was fab!
