Vulcan Lodge - the Middleton holiday cottage is situated in arguably the most beautiful part of the Upper Wye Valley with the Cambrian mountains, Elan Valley lakes and Wye Valley Walk close by. Whether your enthusiasm is for walking, cycling, fishing, birdwatching or canoing - or you just want a peaceful, relaxing holiday, this is the place for you.

The 4* Middleton is the largest of the 5 holiday cottages in the Lodge and has luxury and style. The conversion of the old inn has been undertaken sensitively in order to preserve the best of the old inn - oak beams and stone walls - while providing all of the fittings and furnishings the discerning visitor of today has come to expect of 4 star accommodation.

All that was needed for the stay was there. Fantastic space for all family members to join us in The Middleton. Only reason for not returning is that we love to visit new places. Many thanks

Management response:

Thank you so much for your review. I'm very pleased you enjoyed your birthday celebration. We like to get things as tip top as we can - especially for special celebrations. Kind regards Elaine

Rented 4 of the cottages, all unique, all really lovely, everyone thought so. Very well equipped, everything seems to have been thought through. Location also great, with attractions close by and walks on the doorstep ... and to cap it off, the owners are very nice, and very helpful. Thank you Elaine.

Management response:

Thank you for taking time to post a review of the Middleton Cottage. It's so encouraging when guests enjoy their stay and then take the trouble to post a review. Thank you again. Elaine
