Hot Tub

Lovely little place 5/5

The most lovely remote place for a stay! Had such a great 2 nights.. will definitely recommend this to all my family! The owners dad was so nice! He popped over at the beginning of our stay and gave us attraction recommendations (which were great). 10/10.

Caitlin Aranha | 31 August 2023

Beautiful, peaceful setting 5/5

We had a lovely stay in Hwyl, would highly recommend The pod was super clean and spacious, and set out with all you could need inside and out. Comfortable bed and amazing views from the hot tub, decking and inside Hwyl. Nice touches with luxuries like sensor lights. Loved relaxing in the hot tub. Easy drive to nearby towns and attractions - don’t miss the Elan Valley and the dams and red kite centre. .
