Bryn Lodge, Cwmgwannon is a recently completed and beautifully presented log cabin3 miles from Hay on Wye. It has everything you need for an enjoyable and relaxing retreat high in the hills above Clyro village. It offers the perfect escape for those looking for an "away from it all" break but still within close proximity of civilisation.
The lodge comfortably sleeps 5 guests in 3 bedrooms and has an ensuite with shower to master , as well as a family bathroom. It is set in picturesque and tranquil location with views of the surrounding rolling hills and farmland. Perfectly placed for walks from the door onto the Begwyn Hills, the lodge is also only a 5 minute walk down the hillside to the village of Clyro where a pub, garage and shop can be found ( a longer walk home up the hill!)
Hay on Wye, famous for its annual literary festival and second hand book shops, is only a short distance away and boasts a variety of boutique style shops, family butchers, green grocer, delicatessen, cafes, pubs, restaurants and a thriving weekly market.
Due to being situated close to a local livery yard, the lodge is ideally placed for those guests wishing to bring their horse on holiday ( by private arrangment with the livery owner). Nearby National Truust land and the Begwyn Hills offer the perfect terrain for great riding.
The i-phone photographs are very temporary until we manage to get our photographer over to the Cabin to take some decent photographs.
