Description of Lodge Cottage

The Lodge Cottage in the valley of Cwm y Gerwyn is a lovely place to enjoy a relaxing holiday in beautiful and unspoiled Welsh border country, at any time of the year. There's lots to do and see in the surrounding countryside. It's also a great place to do nothing - just to enjoy the peace and quiet and freedom to breathe.

The Lodge and the adjoining Old Farm cottage have grown out of an old farm at the head of a secluded valley, built in a sheltered spot above the meeting of two streams. It has thick stone walls, oak-beam ceilings, traditional slate flagstone floors and a slate roof. It's warmed by a woodburning stove, with additional electric storage heaters. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped. It sleeps 4 in the two bedrooms, but there's also a sofabed in the living room which can be used if you have 6 people.

The Radnor Forest, of which the Cwm y Gerwyn valley is a part, is actually high wild open ground - sheep pastures, outcrops, and moorland - though areas have been reforested in modern times. It is excellent country for walking, mountain-biking, horse riding and bird watching.

  • Note that we are in a farming community, with sheep and other animals, so dogs must be kept under control. If you're thinking about taking a dog, please discuss it with us before you book.

Local Information

The cottage is up the valley at the end of the road. The village of Bleddfa is a pleasant stroll down the lane from the cottage. Here the Hundred House Inn offers food and drinks. The old schoolhouse in Bleddfa has been converted into an art gallery and cultural centre, the Bleddfa Centre. For your general food supplies, it's about 8 miles on to Knighton or Presteigne, and 12 to Llandrindod Wells.

Accessibility Details

Because of the uneven terrain, the property is not suitable for wheelchair users.


3-day short breaks are also available in non-busy times - for example £187 midweek during June - mid-July, £221 weekend. Please call us for more details.


The cottages are normally rented Saturday to Saturday.

Getting Here

Most visitors take a drive through the countryside to get to our cottages. It's about 33 miles from Hereford, 64 miles from Birmingham and 174 miles from London. The last mile and a half from Bleddfa is along a small back lane which may have some potholes and occasionally gets snowbound in winter; normally it's fine for ordinary cars. We'll give you directions when you book.
