Here, in Nuthatch Cottage in three acres of gardens and mixed woodlands of a Victorian Hunting Lodge you have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the peace & quiet of undisturbed nature. Our cosy three bedroom cottage for up to five people has a stone terrace facing south down the Irfon Valley and the mixed woodland is alive with birds.

Beyond the shrubs and flowers of the formal garden are acres of ancient oak and other native trees. The garden is framed on one side by the distant backdrop of the Irfon Valley and on the other a network of small paths leads through the garden and up into the woods. Some of the paths are cut into the rock itself and provide spectacular views down the valley. An exciting place to explore for both young and old. The woods are home to many birds and animals including greater and Lesser Spotted Woodpec...

Management response:

Thank you for your kind review and our apologies for the water pump! Our water is fresh spring water and has to be pumped to maintain the pressure for showers etc. We are consulting with our plumber to find a quieter way of doing it!

Stayed for 2 weeks with my family of 3. Struggled to find a place at such short notice but Gyles, wife Karin and extended family (including the dogs) were very accomodating, especially as my partner was recovering from a broken thigh which meant he had very limited movement. We chose this lovely place as a base for our house search...

Management response:

Our 5th stay in the Cwm Irfon valley. 4th time at Cwm Irfon Lodge. Which pretty much says every thing you need to know. Your hosts Gyles & Karin are always available to help out. The perfect place to detox from whatever :-)

About the neighbourhood
On the edge of the Cambrian Mountains, up the Irfon Valley three miles from the nearest village.
Quiet and undisturbed by traffic or human voices (but sheep and birds are quite noisy!)
Surrounded by mountains with grazing welsh mountain ponies and wild Welsh bog Oak, the river Irfon a few hundred meters away and a large south facing garden below the cottage terraces with beautiful views down the Irfon Valley.
The valley is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of an otter and will certainly see Red Kites and a variety of other hawks or other birds.
The area is ideal for walking, mountain biking, walking or just sitting by the river and enjoying the sounds, sights and peace and quiet.
Our guests have told us that the woods with their twisted oa...
