Idyllic
I don’t really want to tell the truth about this place because it’s the only property that we have stayed in that we would gladly return to. It’s remote but accessible without driving up miles of single track carriageway. There are walks from the doorstep in glorious countryside. There is an exhilarating MTB trail just a cycle up the road. The facilities are first class and the WiFi met with two university students’ approval (no small matter.) It was excellent.

Amazing Holiday in a wonderful prepared Lodge, in an idyllic location.
The Accommodation was more than any of our party expected, upon arrival you are met by a representative and given full details about the Lodge, the Lodge is simply stunning with everything you need laid on by the owners. Maps, Games, Books and Local details are a few to mention but they have thought of everything to make the holiday as good as it can be for their guests. The location of the Lodge is again a massive bonus as you are surrounded by nature, the garden is a haven for birds and you can hear the lambs whilst sitting on the patio. Walking in the location is also a great experience with short and longer walks available, again the details of these are provided. Llandovery is close by and this is a lovely spot to look at local shops and purchase local goods. We will definitely be returning for years to come!!

Great experience
As a family we stayed here between 25th.June/ 2nd.July.and on arrival were delighted to find the property was as good as shown on the internet/trip advisor. We were greeted by Adrian,a charming man who explained everthing about the workings of the lodge,to make our stay comfortable. This is without doubt high spec.accomodation, finished to a very high level. There are many guide books,maps,books,magazines,films to keep the family busy even on the wettest of days. There is a bird feeding station that attracts a vast array of species such as woodpecker,nuthatch,varieties of finch,tits,sparrows,jays etc,. There are many sites of interest close by and is ideal for all nature lovers. --- the Red Kite feeding station is a great experience. From our viewpoint we could not have stayed anywhere better or nicer. A big thankyou to Lise & Richard for providing us with our ideal holiday home

Can't wait to go back
A fabulous house, well equipped, spacious, welcoming, warm, comfy, brilliant location, best we've stayed in. We had a fantastic weekend in Wales despite the rain. Excellent information available of things to do, bird books, ordnance survey maps, oodles of kids games, etc. I cannot compliment this property enough. Can't wait to return.

Home from home
Absolutely loved this place. It was clean and really lended itself to families but also just two people. Perfect spot for Llandovery college. My daughter was joining her brothers and this was a special time for me and her to spend time quietly managing the first week. The use of the phone turned out to be very important as I recieved some distressing family news and they were able to contact me urgently. I would definitely recommend this place but an added bonus was the wonderful yoga a short walk away. Lise was prompt and efficient which was a godsend as I can be scatty. I will be booking again.

Wonderful Welsh Retreat
I had the pleasure of staying at Henley's Lodge at the end of March in 2015. We had an utterly brilliant time - it's an incredibly comfortable house in a fantastic location. We were a large group (two families with small children) and yet Henley's never felt cramped...the layout on the upper floor with the bedrooms/bathrooms worked extremely well, ensuring that everyone has enough space and privacy but without the irritations of multiple levels! The owners have obviously thought very carefully about what makes for a luxurious yet cosy stay: from the lovely wood burning stove to the numerous fluffy towels, we couldn't have asked for more. Our children were kept entertained in wet weather by the football table and fantastic games cupboard and we enjoyed lovely meals in the well equipped kitchen. The location of Henley's was well worth the trip down from London - the house itself is in a beautiful rural location with owls a-plenty and sheep ambling into the pretty garden. There's plenty to do in the surrounding areas - castles, ancient goldmines and charming towns. Highly, highly recommended - we hope to return soon.

Fantastic house and lots to do!
We had a great stay at Henllys Lodge with lots of small children. The house is just lovely and very well equipped including more games than anyone could dream of! Also, lots to do in the area with the kids and great cycling. Also found a lovely spa for the mums! Highly recommend.

About the neighborhood
Llandovery is a traditional Welsh market town in the Upper Towy (Twyi) valley, bounded by three rivers. Its name means church amidst the waters. It has a historical heritage dating back to Roman times. There are ruins of a Norman castle and also churches and some fine Georgian houses. It was also an important drovers town, where herdsmen gathered from all over South Wales to drive their sheep, cattle, geese and pigs to London. The Heritage Centre is housed in a building dating from around 1750 and has a small museum with interesting displays featuring some of the myths and legends as well as the history of Llandovery and the surrounding area. The striking statue of Llywelyn ap Gruffydd Fychan, a supporter of Owain Glyndwrs struggle for Welsh independence, stands by the castle ruins. In 1401 he was butchered by Henry IV. The Llandovery Craft Centre is on the site of the original meat market and is now a cafe with shops selling crafts and gifts.The area has beautiful countryside where visitors can enjoy walking, birdwatching, cycling, riding, and other outdoor pursuits, or alternatively visit local houses, sites of historic interest and castles. It is at the western edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, an area of special landscape, wildlife and cultural heritage, and Fforest Fawr Geopark, the area designated in 2005 by UNESCO because of its outstanding geological heritage. The Heart of Wales Railway line offers the opportunity to see some spectacular scenery including the Cynghordy Viaduct. Close by are Cilycwm, Rhandirmawn and Llyn Brianne Reservoir which are beautiful places to walk or drive. Stop off at the Dinas RSPB Nature Reserve for a stunning walk along the river and through alder and oak bluebell woodland. Brecfa and Crychan Forests offer woodland and waterfall walks and mountain biking paths.Myddfai (approx 3 miles away) is now the Welsh residence of the Prince Charles, Prince of Wales. The Physicians of Myddfai from medieval times became renowned for herbal remedies and they are also associated with the local legend of the Lady of the Lake Llyn-y-Fan Fach. Not far away are the ruinous abbeys of Strata Florida and Talley, both founded in the 12th century. The town of Llandeilo is also very attractive with upmarket shops, cafes and restaurants. There are many castles both in Llandeilo - Dinefyr Castle – and around, such as Carreg Cennan Castle, one of the most dramatic fortresses on top of a limestone crag and with fantastic views. Aberglasney Gardens and the National Botanic Gardens of Wales are essential visits for all those who love gardens. Dolaucothi Roman Gold Mines, the only Roman Goldmine in Wales, is another essential visit for all those interested in history.
