Pack your bags and throw in the treats as you embark on a getaway to this charming lodge nestled in the Welsh countryside. Surrounded by pretty villages, lush greenery and some of the best stick-fetching places around, your canine companions will have wagging tails from dusk ‘til dawn. After time in the great outdoors, soothe muscles in the private hot tub or spend time on the decking with a glass of something cold.

Sitting on a small complex, wind your way down the private lane, down the steep path and into your cosy lodge. The single-storey, open-plan living space offers an intimate style and means you can keep an eye on your pups if they start eyeing up the treat jar – or treats which aren’t theirs! Rustle up meals by the large double doors and plate up either inside or out. For sizzling feasts (a hit with all the family), fire up the BBQ and enjoy a sundowner evening on the decking, admiring views far and wide across the valley. After a soak in the bubbling hot tub, say goodnight to your pups and retire to bed so you wake refreshed, revived and ready for the next adventure.

Follow walks right from your door or throw on a lead and travel further afield for peaks, panoramic views and pup-friendly pubs. The picturesque town of Builth Wells is 8 miles from home and you will be sure to find somewhere for all the family to tuck into something delicious. A 23-mile trip will take you to the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park where you can climb peaks such as Pen-y-Fan and visit the gorgeous Llyn y Fan Fach where you can make a splash in the lake.

A wonderful lodge in a superb location - great walks straight from the property, or short drives to amazing locations. The four waterfalls walk, Pen Y Fan and the Elan Valley dams were key highlights for us. Nothing better than a long walk on a windy day, followed by a long dip in the hot tub!
