General Info

This charming log cabin takes an elevated position, resting on top of a curved lane and nestled in the base of a sloped wooded valley within the village of Bleddfa. Perfectly located for walking and exploring the area, travellers will look forward to returning here each day, or couples can turn this into a romantic retreat of their own. Stroll past the beautiful countryside views and enter into the cottage where you will arrive at an open-plan lounge area. The kitchen/diner is light and airy with contemporary units and excellent fittings so you can feel right at home whilst preparing those appetising meals. Cosy up in the sitting room on the comfortable sofas and spend an evening in front of the woodburner with your loved ones. Choose from either of the two bedrooms for a peaceful nights sleep; the first is a king-size, whilst the second is set up as a twin. After the sun sets, relax with a good book or reminisce over your adventures and wake up to the lovely ambience all over again. The family bathroom is an ideal place to get ready, boasting both a bath and a shower so you have everything you need to unwind from one day to the next. A large enclosed garden ties this cottage together with valleyside views, a hot tub, and even a pizza oven hut for those social afternoons.

It’s idilic, beautiful and so quiet. The lodge is supplied with a fantastic amount of facilities, hot tub and is full equipped for a self catering stay. We are business owners that wanted to get away from the hustle of working life and that was exactly what we needed ! Definitely returning !

Beautiful Lodge

This lodge is beautiful and is equipped with everything you need for self catering, it is very spacious inside and has an amazing hot tub. It is also lovely and warm. You do have to drive up a long sludgy potholed single farm track to reach the lodge which we did not realise so thought it was worth mentioning it. Darren was lovely and he is building another lodge which you can see further up the hill from Ploony Hill Lodge which also looks like it is going to be beautiful too. It is very peaceful & quiet here and quite remote, which we knew about so we took all our meals with us so it wasn't a problem for us. We had a fabulous chill out week here. Thank you.

Little piece of heaven

Just back from a week at this idyllic lodge . Ideally situated for total peace and quiet. Hot tub is fabulous after a long walk. The lodge is well equipped, clean and tidy. Complimentary welsh cakes, flowers and wine were a lovely touch. The surrounding area is beautiful for exploring , remote but that’s just what we wanted .

Wonderful Lodge

What a gem of a lodge - cosy and warm (underflooring heating) clean, hot tub and so so peaceful - Loved the place so secluded, not bothered by anyone. Has everything in the lodge that you need - Plenty of books to read or games to play on those wet evenings.


Last October, while staying at Ploony Cottage, we were lucky enough to see the lodge being built. After seeing this and then seeing the lodge go ‘live’ with pictures - we thought we’d be prepared for the beauty of it...wrong! When entering the property on a Friday evening, feeling exhausted, we were just taken aback by the end result. As we had brought our elderly Springer, Sasha with us (14 1/14), who can barely walk, is almost completely blind & deaf, we were ‘forced’ to watch the sheep grazing on the hill, the squirrel doing its daily sprint across the field, the leaves falling from the trees and the endless species of birds - including Red Kite - flying around. We have used (and used and used) the hot tub at various times of the day and have watched the night roll in, gazed at a sky full of stars - seen my 1st ever shooting star...and on 31st October - Halloween- a warmer but misty night, we sat in the hot tub while bats flew around! Utterly amazing! This week has been well needed for both myself and my husband! After arriving feeling utterly exhausted, we have both been able to fully recharge our batteries. If you want to walk - there are walks. Tons of places to visit if you want to get out there. If you want to stay in - you’ll not be bored. I’m on my 3rd book - we’ve had matinee movie days and enjoyed an afternoon stroll around the garden - and on the last full day a gentle walk around the block. We have had the BIGGEST and best eggs ever from the free roaming chickens and basically caught our breath. A huge thank you to Darren & Lindsey for providing such a beautiful accommodation and the lovely flowers, wine and welsh cakes. We will definitely return.

Amazing lodge

Just got home from a week at plooney hill lodge and can't wait to book again, we had the most fabulous week, we have stayed in a lot of lodges round the UK and this was by far the best, total privacy, no naibours & a private garden the lodge is amazing with everything you need and more, we made full use of the outdoor pizza oven, bbq and hot tub, the owner darren is lovely and is there if you need anything but is not intrusive the location of this lodge is unreal and is perfect for couples or family's.

Sensational Lodge

TOP CLASS LODGE. We have visited Ploony Cottage another property down the hill from the lodge on two occasions . During our first visit last april we were told about the plans for a lodge to be built up on the hillside next to the woodland and open fields. Then on our second visit in October the lodge was being built and Darren the owner walked us around telling us about all of the things that were being done to make this lodge to be of an exceptional standard. As soon as it was available for hire (WE BOOKED IT). We stayed there from 27th apr - 4th may and I have to say it did NOT disapoint , It is absolutely perfect. Hidden up the hill behind the trees you are in your own private enclosed garden which has an excellent pergoda covered BBQ and Bread or Pizza oven ( which ever you choose to use it as) , a large outdoor seating and a lawn area. The inside of this lodge is to an incredible standard. it has underfloor heating that can be individually controlled in each room, Bright comfortable bedrooms , an open an lounge kitchen and dining room again which is bright , warm and finished to a very high standard with everything you need to hand . NOW the HotTub , kicking back after a hard day walking with the dogs , a glass of wine in hand , that wonderful view and the vast array of wildlife AHHHHH (PERFECTION!!). By night this place is a stargazers dream with no light pollution. This Lodge will not disappoint and the owners Darren and Lyndsey will do everything they can to make your stay at Ploony Hill Lodge a memorable one and they really do go that extra mile that makes this place extra special.

A little corner of paradise

This little corner of the world is wonderful. The owners have done a fabulous job on the lodge and it’s so peaceful. It’s a proper little palace and I can’t wait to go back again. Thank you guys.

Such a fantastic lodge we wanted to take it all home with us!

The lodge had everything we had hoped for ...and more. Clean, well equipped in a wonderful location and very comfortable. The sparkling bathroom was like something from a glossy magazine - gorgeous! The beautiful eight seat luxury hot tub was within one pace of the patio doors which meant that we didn't have to freeze en route back to the lodge! The garden was well enclosed and safe for our Labrador to run around freely although his favourite place was spreadeagled on the lodge floor as he benefited from the underfloor heating! If you can tear yourself away from the lodge, it is a reasonable distance from various places to see including Croft Castle (dog friendly), Berrington Hall, Offa's Dyke walks, Tenbury Wells with a lovely selection of unique shops. and the wonderfully named 'Water Break It's Neck' waterfall. The Space Guard Centre is just a few miles down the road and they do a 90 minute talk and tour explaining you all they do there if space and science is your 'thing', this is well worth a visit. If you fancy a trip to the coast we found Aberystwyth was worth the drive out on a sunny day. Our hosts Darren and Lindsey were very friendly and helpful if we needed them but respected our privacy too. We had wonderful week and are looking forward to returning in the near future.

WOW. What a great little find.

WOW. what a great little find. We have stayed in quite a few lodges with hot tubs around the uk. And this is definitely the best. The lodge has been completed to an extremely high standard and everything has been thought out. The location is fantastic, tucked out of the way at the back of the farm with miles of walks on your door step. Darren and linsey are extremely friendly and made you feel very welcome. We was here during lambing season and were lucky enough to see a number of lambs seeing born. Darren is always on hand for anything. From a little question to recommending days out. Welcoming treat is the lodge was a great touch. And even our dog was not left out with treats for her as well. All in all a fantastic lodge in a great location and fantastic owners. You will not be disappointed. There is no question that we will return here. Thanks for great week away Darren and linsey. Dave, Stacey and Molly.

A little treasure

We've just come back from a fabulous break at Ploony Hill Lodge. A peaceful, private and pleasurable place to stay, off the beaten track from a very small village of Beddfa. We were greeted with some lovely touches, wine, flowers and homemade Welsh cakes. The owners Darren and Lindsey make you feel very welcomed. A new modern lodge. All mod cons etc. Underfloor heating was a treat! The hot tub was amazing and we used it daily both in the day (listening to woodpeckers)and by night (listening to the hooting of owls Our dogs were happy to, making friends with the owners dogs and safely fenced in to roam throughout the day as well as their daily walks in feilds surrounding the property. The only thing the kids complained at was the Wi-Fi was a llittle sporadic but it gave them a chance to read books that we brought from a few charity shops on day trips out to Leominster/Llandindod wells/Knighton. The week was such a chillaxed time. We didn't want to leave, in fact if we could have picked it up and took it with us we would. Would give consideration to renting Ploony Cottage which is owned by the same people and just below the Lodge anther time.
