This lodge is much bigger than I expected and contains all of the conveniences that a family might need for a stay in Wales. Washing Machine, Dryer, Dishwasher, Freesat etc, oh and a hot tub and Sauna!
On arrival the twin beds in the guest bedroom were not made up. However the lady from the lodge opposite who looks after this lodge on behalf of the owner had noticed we had more than 2 bikes on the roof so promptly arrived to make them!
Everything needed was provided including some cakes on arrival :)
The location is so quiet that there are no sounds at all at night, which is an unusual experience! However being this rural also has some potential downsides depending on how social you like to be. There was no cellphone reception on either Vodaphone or O2 in the cabin, meaning a walk to the top of the site if you wanted to make a call.
Also although the cabin boasts WIFI on the advertisement, this is actually located in the lodge next door and we strugged to use the wifi with two phones and a tablet from anywhere other than outside near the hot tub. This is a shame and could easily be remedied by the addition of a £20 access point in this lodge.
A couple of other pointers:
- The shower is pretty weak and has a mind of its own regarding temperature!
- The hot water is heated up over night and once its gone, its gone for the day! On our arrival to the cabin, there was no hot water so presumably the previous occupants had used it all.
These points are just being picky though as overall this lodge is fantastic and made for a fantastic family holiday in Wales.

Want to get away from it all for a while look no further than this! Absolutely breathtaking surroundings in a quaint yet fully equipt log cabin, comfortable bed, hot tub, log fire we really couldn't have asked for more, many thanks to phil for such a relaxing experience, am sure we will visit again in the future :)
We had a fantastic time at Wnion Wood Lodge and I must admit after reading all the great reviews we were kind of expecting this place to be perfect choice but in fact it was even better than expected! If you are looking for a place to escape a busy city life (like London for example) and in addition you have a dog this is a perfect choice.The place itself as well as the surrounding area is magical and you will be in heaven if you like walking or hiking as there is plenty of options with breathtaking views and even the bad weather will not ruin it for you as you can relax in the sauna and hot tub after the busy day of exploring the area and have a glass of wine in front of the wood burner and believe me you would want to stay there forever:-)) I do not often write reviews to be honest but on this occasion I decided I would definitely write one because it provide all you can ask for and more:-)))
