Wow where do i start! Not only is robert (the owner) a great host, he is also a fantastic person & played a massive part in why our weekend was such a success. As for the property, it was quite amazing & is exactly how it was explained on tripadvisor. The lodge had everything we required & the views surpassed our expectations. The location was also very convenient only 5-10 mins from the M4.

We were a group of 8 on a stag to do some gorge scrambling in the national park nearby. Robert played a huge part in the weekend & through his excellent communication in the months leading up to the stay he organised the core of our weekend such as space for our gladiator duel bouncy castle along with a private thai chef who cooked the best thai food i have eaten, many thanks nee, you were a very popular lady last night during dinner! Apart from this robert also took care of many other details to allow us to go off & enjoy the weekend, something i am extremely grateful for.

Thank you so much for all your effort on what was an excellent weekend, we are all very keen to return one day!

From andy & the rest of the lads

Having generously brought not one but TWO bottles of red wine all the way from Chile, it was the very least you deserved!! Seriously, you came to enjoy and it is always our pleasure to make that process as easy as possible. You were also the first guests at River View, albeit just the garden area! We hope you will be back to experience the completed venue in the near future. Best of luck to the Bride and Groom in October.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 9 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed here for 3 nights Easter weekend and received a warm, friendly welcome by the owner Robert.
We received a very generous welcome hamper including Easter eggs for our 3 boys and beer & bubbly for the grown ups.
The lodge was very clean and spacious with amazing views overlooking the RSPB Nature Reserve.
Certainly had everything we needed for a weekend break and much more.
Can't wait to come back and stay, we would definitely recommend this lodge :-)

“Very comfortable”
Reviewed 25 July 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We arrived on a rainy afternoon and as we opened the door of the lodge we instantly felt welcomed with a warm fire burning. It's a great location if you want to explore the beaches, Cardiff or if you prefer walking in the Black Mountains. The owners made us feel welcome and we would go back any time. The village of Clydach is beautiful and peaceful, it was lovely to walk the dog in the morning. The view from the Lodge is breathtaking. The Lodge is very comfortable and has everything you will need for a your holidays; we stayed there with our 2 teenage sons and they also loved it.
