“Lovely Holiday”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

Me and my family have just come back from Penllwyn lodges, we had a great time! We stayed at the Oaks lodge, it was very big inside and very clean. i have no faults about it to be honest. I wil hopefully be returning in the future!

we stayed in the foxgloves lodge and was very impressed with the size of the lodge as usual in a log cabin type building there are a few places on the corners of the ceilings that look a little dark but this is the same wherever you go.

sofas a little lumpy and unsupporting as are the beds

lovely walks to berriew to the local butchers also a nice tea room and deli a little shop is in berriew which covers the essentials but if you require more then i would say to go to tesco/morrisons in welshpool, before you arrive as its only 6 miles from site

we parked up the whole weekend and walked everywhere well strolled!!!!

nice fishing lake but didnt catch a thing booo!! ha ha all the fun of it!!

lovely place we would stay again nice cosy and warm

Room Tip: every lodge has its merits choose any

We went on a family holiday last August and found the lodges really peaceful and relaxing. The forest setting was gorgeous with no end of wildlife, the only drawback was that you're a good couple of hours drive from any attractions. Chester Zoo's worth a visit though.

We have just returned from a 3 night break in the Little Log. It is so relaxing, with beautiful views, beautiful walks and beautiful surroundings!
We took our 17 year old dog - Hal, who was on the go all the time! He thoroughly enjoyed it.
The lodge was very warm and clean.
So good we have book again later this year.

Room Tip: Little Log had south facing veranda. Also not overlooked!

If you want a luxurious weekend retreat, then hop on a plane to Dubai. We stayed here over the weekend of 12th to 15th April. It was a relatives 65th birthday and we had 4 different lodges. A lot of reviews are quite correct, the lodges have seen better times and things need updating, but the location, peace and tranquility make up for it. If you want to wind down and go back to work relaxed then you could do worse than coming here. The lodges are all around a hillside from top to bottom, but they are well spaced out and you have lots of room. On one side you have views of a golf course, whilst on the other you have views of the lake and gardens of the park. Ducks roam around the lodges, geese use the lake, a resident llama, pig and Shetland donkeys are something for little ones to look at. A small park, and a field with goalposts for a kickabout.
A no longer used stretch of the Montgomery Canal runs through the grounds, you can have a nice walk either way.
You can fish on the lake, where there are Carp, Tench, Pike etc.
Its in a nice part of the countryside with quaint little villages within a short driving distance.
If you are there on a Sunday and want a nice Sunday Lunch, look no further than the restaurant at the Golf Course, which is a short drive away, or a stroll through the course.
3 courses fo £14.99. Decent choice on all three courses. If you pick a roast dinner you will be hard pressed to eat it all. Lots of fresh veg, excellent staff, and a nice restaurant. It satisfied 18 people.
It gets 4 out of 5 because for what we paid it was value for money. It does'nt get 5, because it would have to be perfect for that.

Our stay at the lodge was perfect. A cosy but spacious lodge with an amazing view from the huge picture window in the living room. The kitchen had everything you needed and was very clean. The surroundings were just beautiful and peaceful and ideal for a couple needing some relaxation
