Reviews

It was a lovely time. The house is absolutely amazing.

Very clean and well equipped. Great service. We all wish we could stay longer or forever :)


Botanic Garden is very nice place to visit. We enjoyed walking

“A home from home!”

We have stayed here twice this year, once in May & once in October & will certainly be back!

The whole experience from booking, to arrival & the greeting & tour from Ralph, to the actual stay was first class!

The house was spotless, very comfortable & the kitchen had everything you required.

The grounds are lovely & was a treat to watch the birds on the feeder.

Overall I can heartily recommend this property to anyone, for the welcome, comfort, amenities, location/surrounding areas.

Thanks for two lovely stays!

Please don't stay here: I want it for myself.
Utterly perfect. Simple, charming, efficient, unfussy, cosy. Sell it to me now!
I was worried that it wasn't 'quaint' not so. eco-friendly and utterly lovely. A well thought out, well appointed, gorgeous place to stay. And plenty of cutlery for more than one course.
The only thing missing was a champagne cooler. And that's being fussy.

“A great home from home in a tranquil setting”


This is our second stay at the lodge and am pleased to say everything was just as good as we remembered the first time. From the friendly welcome, to the welcome basket of local produce right through to the high quality accommodation and the lovely setting the property provides a perfect escape from the rest of the world. Rarely have we found a holiday let with such a high class finish with a contemporary yet homely feel. The garden and local walks were great for the children and on the very wet day we had, the log burner, the table football and the very well stocked games cupboard game in very handy (as did Sky TV and the wifi connection i am ashamed to say).


The Lodge is perfectly located for exploring Mid and West Wales and this time we made it down the Gold Mine just a few miles away. Overall a first class experience, I would say a real home from home - just my home isnt as good so i would be doing it down!!!

“Best accommodation we have stayed it felt like home worth every penny.'


Great location property is very clean and comfortable and greeted with warm welcome. We were lucky with the weather there were only a few light showers during the week. It was nice to sit out in the garden and relax a perfect place to unwind. The children had a swing and big garden to run around. Pond was a great feature kids loved it. One evening we lit the log fire nice feature and added a nice touch to the property. I have to say the ensuite shower is amazing. Beds were confortable and clean.
There is supermarket co-op nearby really handy.
Place catered for children a lot of board games and table football.
Nice Indian restaurant nearby called Indian lounge service and food was outstanding
Nice relaxing walks and wonderful views nearby.
A visit to Dinefwr Park /Castle and Aberglasney Gardens/House recommended. Sgwd-yr-Eira located in ‘waterfall country also recommended. There is a lot to explore around the Brecon Beacons.
Well done Henllys Lodge we will recommending this place to our friends and family and we will be back. travelworlduk - 3rd July 2012

As the valley skirts the western side of the Brecon Beacons and then snakes its way lazily towards Carmarthen, you can follow the path of the river from Llandeilo and you’re gifted with views that are normally reserved for Arthurian l...

Local Area

Hafan Myrddin is a detached house, set in its own impressive grounds. Situated 2 miles from Llandovery, (market town with all amenities including banks, post office, restaurants and supermarkets) and 2 miles from Cilycwm (small village with local pub serving good food). Llandeilo (12 miles) offers upmarket shops and restaurants and Brecon is 20 miles.

This self catering Brecon Beacons cottage is on the western edge of the National Park. Carmarthenshire has fantastic landscapes and lots to see and do and is known as 'the Garden of Wales'. There are gardens and nature parks, castles, houses, forests and hills to look at and explore, either on foot, by bike or car.

Llandovery is located 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, was an important drovers’ town and it has ruins of a Norman castle and also churches and some fine Georgian houses. Close by are Cilycwm, Rhandirmawn and Llyn Brianne Reservoir which are beautiful places to walk, cycle or drive.

Myddfai (approx 3 miles away) is now the Welsh residence of 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. The house 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.

There are also many castles - in Llandeilo there’s Dinefwr Castle - and our favourite - Carreg Cennen 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 (National Trust), the only Roman goldmine in Wales, is another fascinating visit for all those interested in history.

Walking

Many stunning walks to suit all abilities and ranges. Explore the Brecon Beacons National Park or try Llandovery town walk – 2.1 miles. Maps and walking guides available.
