“The perfect hideaway”
Reviewed 3 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Everything we could have wanted from a few days' escape from the world. Plenty of space, an amazing hot tub, privacy and the freedom to make our own entertainment. Can't wait to come back in the summer months and make the most of the pool. Thank you for letting us into your secret.

“Such an amazing find”
Reviewed 27 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We have family nearby and were able to have the most amazing Birthday and Christmas holiday in this beautiful country home. It is a very special place and we hope to return year after year. It was decorated beautifully for the holidays (complete with a gorgeous Christmas tree) - traveling from the US, this made it an amazing spot for the holidays. We can't say enough about how gracious the management was; meeting us for check-in and helping us locate the missing car keys a 1/2 hour after check-out. This is a very special spot, close enough to Cardiff but rural enough to make you feel like you are the only one out there.

“Great Base for Cardiff”
Reviewed 6 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

The pictures of this lodge do not do it justice. On arrival, every one of our party of 12 was incredibly impressed by this lodge. Plenty of space to socialise in the kitchen (as tends to be the norm in these situations) - though perhaps a couple more dining chairs would have been useful. The lounge was spacious and all of the bedrooms were very clean and comfortable. There was plenty of sleeping space and everyone had a good night's sleep. The taxi ride into Cardiff was about £40 per group of 6 which didn't seem too bad. Overall, excellent, and we will be back!

“We couldn't have picked a better place, Pool and Location Excellent”
Reviewed 15 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

I stayed at this property with a large group last month for a week as a birthday celebration. This group included 10 adults, 3 teenagers and 5 young children. We arrived at the lodge and were straight away amazed at the beauty of the surroundings. We were then greeted by a very helpful lady who showed us into the property. The pool was a massive bonus as it kept the kids entertained for hours on end. Us men played on the local golf course which was brilliant, we were picked up by a golf buggy that then dropped us off to the course which is only 2 minutes away. We also all went quad biking which everybody enjoyed. Cardiff was approximately 15 minutes away and it is a very good city that has a vibrant atmosphere in both the night and day although I am from Cardiff but others in the group were from London and they really enjoyed the city. The Lodge was very clean and was very spacious for all of us. The garden is beautiful and the patio was ideal for a barbecue which we had on a few nights. I would highly recommend this property for large groups, stag/hen parties and families as there is something to do for everyone.

“Great property, great location!”
Reviewed 15 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

17 of us stayed at Hafod Lodge for 1 week, as our son was getting married at a venue close by. It is a great property, ideal for a large family group; clean, bright and spacious, set in attractive grounds. The pool (which was used everyday) was a real bonus. The location was perfect for exploring Cardiff and the surrounding areas.
