We have just returned from a fantastic weekend at The Firs - the best lodge we have ever been to! On our arrival, Tom met us at the top of the lane to show us down to the property and gave us a tour. He talked through the lodge and where to find everything. Tom is lovely - very friendly and welcoming, made us feel right at home. Everything has been thought of to ensure that you have the best time possible. We had come prepared but there were extra touches that we haven?t seen in other lodges before. A welcome hamper had been left for us including, fresh bread, Bara Brith, butter, tea bags, milk etc. - lovely touch and a complete surprise. The lodge itself is beautifully furnished and super cosy! The bedrooms are spacious and both have en-suite bathrooms. One room occupies a shower and the other a bath/shower combination. The beds were really comfortable all with clean, fresh linen. Great nights sleep! TV's in both bedrooms if required and WiFi is accessible throughout. The rest of the lodge has a luxurious feel and everything has been finished to a high standard. The facilities are brilliant, fridge, washing machine and dishwasher all included. The property is truly beautiful! The views are amazing - it's been great to sit in the hot tub and look out. The hot tub is a fantastic addition to the lodge - well maintained by Tom who comes round to check the chlorine each morning. We took some time out on the Saturday to visit Devils Bridge which we would highlight recommend (not for the faint heated) but in all honesty, we couldn?t wait to get back to the lodge for a dip in the hot tub! All in all, the best lodge we have ever stayed in and we absolutely cannot wait to return!

Fantastic lodge fantastic views
Where shall I start fantastic lodge the views are excellent. Very quite and peace full Lodge high standard with everything needed. Hot tub used daily. Tom the host friendly and knowledgeable. Would recommend we are definitely going back

WOW!!! What a beautiful place, we were met by Tom the owner who showed us around, told us how the hot tub operated etc. there was a welcome hamper on the table with butter, bara brith, fresh bread, milk and bottled water in the fridge, the cottage is beautifully furnished and and has absolutely stunning views over the valley, you have to see it to believe it , the only sound you here is wildlife, no cars passing , so peaceful there, my mother in law who is 90 was with us {she is very hard to please} and she didn't stop raving about it the whole time , she is quite immobile and somewhere from the depths of his garage Tom found a zimmer frame, which was invaluable to her, Olwen and Tom are the perfect hosts, we will definitely be back,

Beautiful cabin with spectacular views.
We first heard about The Firs from the owners son whilst it was being built and were shown some pictures which looked impressive. We had always stayed at hotels previously when visiting Mid Wales but decided for the first time to try self catering as the cabin looked so well fitted and luxurious. I have to say that we were not disappointed. On arrival we were very warmly greeted by Alwyn and shown around the cabin and shortly after that Tom arrived to explain how the hot tub worked. A welcome basket of local produce greeted us on the kitchen table which was a welcome surprise and all of the furnishings are of the highest standard to ensure a comfortable and relaxing stay. The lounge doors open out to an extremely spacious patio area part of which is covered and included a large gas fired BBQ but the highlight undoubtedly is a most impressive and spectacular view over the valley which can only be described as stunning and would not have been out of place on a picture postcard. I can only add that Alwyn and Tom did everything possible to ensure that we had a comfortable and memorable stay and we will definitely return.

Fantastic holiday and breathtaking views
We have just come back from a week at The Firs. We did not want to leave! The views where tremendous and the lodge was equipped with everything we needed. We had a lovely welcome hamper and Tom gave us a thorough tour of the lodge. We had some wonderful days out but nothing beat getting in the hot tub at night, listening to the local wildlife (which included owls), looking at the big harvest moon and watching shooting stars. Breakfast was as equally stunning looking out over the valley and watching the Red Kites soar on the thermals. The location was so peaceful and we can?t thank Tom enough for such a relaxing holiday. Please don't hesitate to book, you won?t be disappointed.
