We’ve been fixing windows and repainting, and recently replaced the Lodge Cottage sofabed.
From time to time we post cottage news on our Facebook page. Guests can post too.
In our valley, dark skies and nature are in charge! See our list of local Cwm y Gerwyn birds.
The Lodge and Old Farmhouse cottages in the valley of Cwm y Gerwyn provide a lovely place to enjoy a relaxing holiday in beautiful and unspoiled Welsh border country, at any time of the year. There's lots to do and see in the surrounding countryside. It's also a great place to do nothing - just to enjoy the peace and quiet and freedom to breathe.
The Lodge and Old Farm cottages have grown out of an old farm at the head of a secluded valley, built in a sheltered spot above the meeting of two streams. Both cottages have thick stone walls, oak-beam ceilings, traditional slate flagstone floors and slate roofs. They are warmed by woodburning stoves, with additional electric storage heaters. Both kitchens are modern and fully equipped.
The Radnor Forest, of which the Cwm y Gerwyn valley is a part, is actually high wild open ground - sheep pastures, outcrops, and moorland - though areas have been reforested in modern times, giving this valley a distinctive landscape. It is excellent country for walking, mountain-biking, horse riding and bird watching.
A few key details:
The cottages are self-catering.
They are normally booked weekly, from Saturday to Saturday.
During less busy periods, we also encourage you to book Weekend or Midweek short breaks (3 days or more).
You can also book both together, using the connecting door to make a double cottage for a larger group.
The cottage is so quite and peaceful you really do feel in touch with nature ... so comfortable and only just enough modernised to provide comfort without taking away from the character.

Such a lovely and affordable house in a beautiful location.

Absolutely lovely spot, walks straight from the door into the forest . The house is quirky with lots of old furniture and books, it's clean and comfortable and the kitchen is modern and spacious. You can watch an array of different birds from the windows land on the apple tree, and views down the valley are wonderful.
