“A lovely base on which to explore near and far”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

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 around certain parts of Wales. It was so peaceful and we were left alone to enjoy the views and the sounds of the red kite but this lovely couple and their son were around if we needed their help.

We stayed at Buzzard Cottage which was very spacious and more that adequate for our needs - The terrace adjoined to the cottage was lovely, can sit there, enjoy the views whilst having a glass of whatever takes your fancy and meet the owners very friendly dogs from time to time.

There are washing and drying (clothes) facilities on site , recycling facilities (because we all have to do our bit even when on holiday) and are all dotted around the site which gives you a lovely opportunity to explore. So quiet, no phones other than a payphone (but connected to broadband if required). It was such a joy to relax there inbetween whizzing about looking for a new home.

Thanks guys for being so accomodating, friendly and for the lovely cake. You made us feel very welcome. Special message for Karin, thank you for helping me unload the car when we arrived, had so much stuff bet you thought we were moving in! lolol. Hope to see you again! Kerry x

“The antidote from city life.”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

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 :-)

“most tranquil place to be”
Reviewed 5 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

we love it here very much, very tranquil and excellent wildlife, especially the birds. Behind every corner something different with breadthtaking views. So many things to explore. And Karin and Gyles are the most welcoming and helpful hosts you can imagine.

“Heaven on earth”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My third visit in 5 years. An absolutely beautiful base for our fishing trip. The Palmers are friendly and wonderful hosts and they do everything to make a stay the best. Ideally placed for numerous fly fishing venues….the Irfon just two hundred yards away and much improved on the upper reaches…brown.trout and some superb grayling. the Wye and Usk Foundation have done and still doing a great job on improving these upper reaches after years of damaging effects of coniferous forestation. The Wye and it's many mid Wales tributaries within easy reach as is the Usk SImple clean accommodation set in stunning gardens….a real gem.

“Lovely little cottage in beautiful surroundings.”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My husband and I, with my teenage son stayed at Buzzard cottage. It is a small cottage ideal for three people, or a family with two younger children. The cottage is set in extensive gardens, which were delightful to explore and there were walks from the door in beautiful countryside.
Lots of things are provided in the cottage, such as tea, coffee etc. The owners were really helpful and friendly.
It wasn't a problem for us, but people need to be aware that it is not possible to drive right up to the cottage as it is situated in the gardens behind the owners house.
The local area is perfect for walkers and mountain bikers.
