We enjoyed a lovely peaceful 2 night stay in a cozy lodge. Awful weather but it just meant we had an excuse to stay in! Anita was very helpful and the accomodation had everything we needed. Would visit again.

We were looking for a quiet two nights in a natural setting and it was perfect. This one bed cabin was warm and cosy on a rather rainy and cold weekend but we also enjoyed sitting out in the grassed area during sunny breaks, visiting the ducks at the pond and listening to the birdsong all around us. Rita explained everything well and was very friendly. Just be aware that you need to put Pound coins in the electric meter which is located near the floor under the counter, but we fed it with several coins at one time and only had to do it once. There is no wifi so it will be a completely restful time. It had Books and DVDs and TV. Plenty of places to visit in surrounding areas, including Cardiff.

My husband and I booked this weekend away for our 10th wedding anniversary, we just wanted to get away and relax and we were not disappointed. A bit of an odd drive in but nice when you get to the cabin and grounds, only 4 lodges there and the pair of ducks were cute on the little pond to feed. The cabin was very basic but lovely, bedroom really nice but bathroom and kitchen very basic, however as long as your looking for a rustic charm you will like it. Cabin also has a great little private garden to sit and relax and enjoy the evening in peace with birds and wildlife. Good location, Llantrisant was lovely with wild ponies roaming around, with nice walks. We visited Ogmore-by-sea which is fantastic, you can go pony trekking across the sand dunes, grab an ice cream and enjoy the beaches and walks along the river mouth. We also found a quiet beach by Porth Cawl, however the main beach has a surf school, and rock pools if you take children. There are lots of super markets around we used Lidl which was a short drive and shopping outlets and pubs if you want to eat out. We had a lovely weekend, really enjoyed our stay and would go back again as a couple or with the kids. Rita was also very helpful showing us around the cabin and how everything works, thank you.
