“Fantastic House - the perfect weekend”

person found this review helpful

14 women stayed at Hafod Lodge for my sister's hen do - I couldn't have asked for anything more. Mary was so helpful throughout the process. The house itself is beautiful and has so much character - lovely grounds with pool and hot tub, plenty of space inside and a huge dining table that sat 15 people. It was only a 5 min walk to a local vineyard and about a 20 min drive to Cardiff town centre. Mary helped us organise a supermarket delivery (and even kindly unpacked it for us), and mini buses into town. The house is pretty secluded so we didn't have to worry about disturbing anyone. I would absolutely recommend it to parties of all shapes and sizes. Plenty of room for kids to run around and play in the garden, or for a hen do dance class which we also arranged. A perfect weekend!

“Brilliant time and such a lovely area”
Reviewed March 20, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

I have just come back from staying at Hafod Lodge with 12 others of which we had a fab time. Mary who looks after it was fab showing us round and all correspondence was brilliant with them. We loved the hot tub especially and was always in it. I would highly recommend this place, my only downer was the main house i would suggest it can only really fit 11 people but they do have an out house for four more. We had 13 of which we had to put two camp beds up which was fine and in the main room there was plenty of space to do so.
I would definitely go back and the area was lovely. The vineyard 5 min up the road was definitely worth going to for afternoon tea, but the lunches looked good too and w eloved the mini shop with its lovely gifts.

Thanks for a great time and i would consider coming back as the price was very reasonable and it was a wonderful big house.

“The perfect hideaway”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Everything we could have wanted from a few days' escape from the world. Plenty of space, an amazing hot tub, privacy and the freedom to make our own entertainment. Can't wait to come back in the summer months and make the most of the pool. Thank you for letting us into your secret.

“Such an amazing find”
Reviewed January 27, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We have family nearby and were able to have the most amazing Birthday and Christmas holiday in this beautiful country home. It is a very special place and we hope to return year after year. It was decorated beautifully for the holidays (complete with a gorgeous Christmas tree) - traveling from the US, this made it an amazing spot for the holidays. We can't say enough about how gracious the management was; meeting us for check-in and helping us locate the missing car keys a 1/2 hour after check-out. This is a very special spot, close enough to Cardiff but rural enough to make you feel like you are the only one out there.

“Great Base for Cardiff”
Reviewed November 6, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

The pictures of this lodge do not do it justice. On arrival, every one of our party of 12 was incredibly impressed by this lodge. Plenty of space to socialise in the kitchen (as tends to be the norm in these situations) - though perhaps a couple more dining chairs would have been useful. The lounge was spacious and all of the bedrooms were very clean and comfortable. There was plenty of sleeping space and everyone had a good night's sleep. The taxi ride into Cardiff was about £40 per group of 6 which didn't seem too bad. Overall, excellent, and we will be back!
