Pheasants lodge is extremely well presented and well equipped. The accomodation is clean and well cared for and the owners are very helpful. It is ideal for a quite break being out of the way but great for walking.
Lovely relaxing and peaceful holiday

A really lovely cottage. Lots of little extras provided by owner - dishwasher, washing machine, tea, coffee sauces etc. Very peaceful setting with no traffic noise and lovely view of shire horses from living room window. Loved seeing the chickens outside and enjoyed the fresh eggs provided. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner. The garden was secluded and privacy assured. Really relaxing holiday just right for recharging the batteries. Close to events such as Royal Welsh Show and lovely scenery at the Elan Valley Dams. Well worth a trip and would definitely go again.
