Staying at the George was the best holiday we have had, we have stayed all round the country but this was by far the best place. The owners were so kind and helpful. I have recommended this to family and friends.

Stayed Here for one week with my son. The cottage was in a beautiful location and contained everything anyone could want to make a great holiday. The owner was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely return here.

We would very much recommend this holiday to anyone. The cabin had everything you would want from this sort of holiday and is in the perfect rural location to get away from it all. The owner was very friendly and very down to earth. We hope to visit again in the near future.

We had an amazing, quiet time. Exactly what you need when you live in a fast paced London environment; hot tub under the stars, peace and quiet, and friendly, always ready to help owners. We couldn't have asked for anything better! We will definitely be recommending to anybody!

In a wonderful idyllic setting which was very relaxing. The owner was very welcoming and we felt instantly at home. I wish we had booked two weeks! Late night hot tubs beneath starry skies were an amazing experience. I cannot fault the place.

A very well equipped lodge that made it feel like a home rather than just a rental. There was everything we needed and more.
Mr Copnall

The welcome and information provided by the owners was both friendly and informative. The Hot Tub and Log Burner provided the perfect setting for our relaxing and chilled honeymoon. We felt at home straight away and had everything that we required for a wonderful stay.

Peaceful location but a good base and plenty to do and see within easy travelling distance. Biking along the canal is great. Excellent log cabin, ideal for the time of year with the log burner and hot tub. Good local pub with excellent food with generous portions.

Wanted something special for my birthday and got it. Beautiful cabin which was roomy and airy. I enjoyed being in the country with all the wildlife. I would love to go back with my daughter especially after reading the visitors book with all the great comments on how the owner gets kids involved feeding animals if they want to.
Mrs Byrne
September 2015
The location is perfect as is the way the two cabins are set up, allowing full privacy. The hot tub was amazing. The owner and her family have provided a perfect retreat and we will be returning in the future. A very welcoming family who have thought of everything, so much so we did not want to come home - it was that good. The animals around you are friendly and provided many hours of humour watching them go about their daily life. The night sky was stunning and we were lucky to catch a number of shooting stars overhead. Just perfect.

Stunning scenery and beautiful surroundings, it was really tranquil and relaxing. Every need was catered for and every little thing about the cabin was perfectly thought out as well as beautifully decorated. Particularly loved the animals and how tame they were.
Mr Roberts

Absolutely fantastic holiday, it was peaceful and quiet. Have already told our friends about it. A lovely cabin in a lovely location. The hot tub and log burner were great, there were plenty of home comforts. Everything was catered for.
Mrs Roberts

This is a peaceful spot with a gorgeous view down the valley. The cabin is furnished very well and in keeping - you could almost live in it permanently. We enjoyed being visited by the chickens and ducks and being able to feed them.
Mr Skyers

5 Star! The George is an amazing place to get away to, it is beautifully built, has amazing views. It felt like a second home to us. The bedrooms were stunning, a great size and the super king bed was so comfortable, I have never had such a good nights sleep. This log cabin had all the essentials and so much more then we could have ever thought of. I am a wheelchair user, and I was so nervous this being my first holiday and our honeymoon, but the whole cabin is disabled friendly. There is so much room to spin my chair around, and every cupboard and room was totally accessible. We are already planning our second visit. The George gave us a peaceful tranquil getaway, and was so much better than we ever expected. This is a must try you will not be disappointed. 5 Stars.

Loved every minute of this holiday, so peaceful with lovely countryside surrounding the cabin. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and the hot tub was the amazing to relax and just chill - a perfect holiday.
Mr McDonald

The George is perfect for a relaxing week, this was our 4th visit and it keeps getting better and better. We enjoyed the log fire, hot tub and feeding the animals around the farm. Will definitely book again for next year. The owners are most welcoming and should be proud of what they have achieved with this log cabin.
Miss Underwood

We loved the peace and quiet, and the general 'home-from-home' feel of the cabin. The owner and his son were brilliant, and nothing was too much trouble. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would love to come back!

Fantastic cabin with all the facilities you could ever need. Very clean. In fantastic surroundings with great views. The pub down the road was great. The owner was great. The hot tub is legendary. This is without doubt the best/only place to stay in Wales, again, absolutely fantastic!

It was very quiet and peaceful. The log fire was nice, we had plenty logs to keep it going. The hot tub was very clean and hot, just what we needed in the cold weather. The cabin is set in an ideal place for the views and the wildlife. The owners were very welcoming and very helpful. We will definitely be returning and recommending this log cabin.

The owners have thought of everything when it comes to The George Lodge - it's amazing! Then you have the farm animals and the surrounding wildlife, all a joy to watch from the hot tub. So much to see and do around the area. Must give a mention to the 'Bull and Heifer' little pub in Bettws Cedawain Village - food and staff beyond lovely. We visited in March 2013 in about six inches or more of snow. Can't wait to see The George in all its glory in the summertime as well. Definitely going back!

The George was amazing, my husband and I stayed for a week in March and thoroughly enjoyed the peace and relaxation of the cabin and hot tub. Very quiet and almost in the middle of nowhere (nearest town, 1.5 miles, 20 min walk. Nice little pub, pool table, darts, serves good food). The cabin was well equipped, comfy and warm. You even get free firewood which is unusual for accommodations of this kind. We met Hele and George on arrival and they were friendly and helpful. Showed us around and how to use the tub, log burner etc. Would definitely consider staying here again.

The owners were wonderful from the outset. They made us feel welcome and wanted. They were never more than a phone call away. The cabin was excellent. Just what was needed. Peace, quiet and a private hot tub.

Myself, my partner and my Son (age 3) stayed at The George for a week mid November. It wasn't too hard to find as we followed the directions given to us from the Bettws Cedewain Village. The drive up to the Cabin is quite bumpy but it's farm land so we expected it and it made me feel safer about letting my son run about in the land as I knew any drivers were going slow. As we passed some chickens and ducks we could see the beautiful lodges up ahead 'The George' at the front. And a new addition 'The Bothy' which looks like it will be just as amazing when finished. From the moment we arrived we fell in love with the views. We were greeted by Hele who was very welcoming and showed us around the 'The George'. It's lovely and the pictures honestly do not do this place justice. The Kitchen is fully equipped with everything you can think of. The living room is spacious with a very nice log fire and the fire surround is gorgeous and a great feature. There are games and dvd's for when you want to stay in and enjoy the cabin. Beautiful views from the double doors onto the veranda and the hot tub is a perfect way to spend the evening and unwind, glass of wine in one hand looking out at the views and up at the stars. Just Perfect! The bedrooms are lovely too especially the kingsize bed which is so comfy. Every morning I sat outside with a coffee watching the ducks and chickens coming up the hill and the sheep walking down past the Cabin a lovely way to start the day. My son enjoyed feeding them each day and going on walks along the fields, listening to the owls and searching for 'The Gruffalo' by the woods. We met John who came to chat with us a few times throughout our stay. He's very friendly and should be proud of what he and his family have a achieved we can see from the photo albums in the cabin that alot of hard work has been put into creating their dream and that shows in the quality of the cabin. The surrounding area outside of the farm is beautiful to drive through. The local towns Newtown and Welshpool were not too far away with a tesco in Newtown and a Morrison's in Welshpool to stock up on anything you need. We went on a lovely train ride from Newtown Station to Aberystwyth through the hills with beautiful scenery. There's actually quite alot of local things to do if you look around. But we were quite happy to stay on the farm as we found plenty to do and my Son really enjoyed himself. A relaxing holiday, amazing scenery, beautiful cabin, friendly and welcoming owners. What more could you want. We will be back, and recommending to family and friends. Thankyou John, Hele and George

You can see from the photos that The George is something special. We have stayed in quite a few log cabins, and can honestly say that the spec here is vastly superior. Hele has decorated and furnished the interior beautifully. It really feels like home. Tea, coffee, sugar and milk were all provided, as were all the other essentials. There was a superb log-burning stove, which unfortunately we never got to use as the weather was so good. It must be very cosy and welcoming in the winter. We did feel that the provision of table/floor lamps would have been beneficial, as the high wall lights didn't give enough light to read by comfortably. Outside, the approach road is very bumpy and could probably do with some gravel being added to fill in the pot holes. However, the uneven surface does make visitors drive extremely slowly, so at least the chickens and ducks are safe from "mad" drivers. It was very enjoyable to be in the hot tub early in the morning and watch the mist roll up the valley before the sun broke through, and the valley seems to have its own pair of red kites which continually circled overhead. We loved having the chickens and ducks calling to see if we had any titbits for them, We kept hens for many years and miss having them now. It was a real delight to sit at the outside table with Dave (the cockerel), curled up contentedly at our feet. We are not sure if this would suit everyone, however, and perhaps the verandah should be fully enclosed to prevent any of the chickens actually coming onto it, so the guests can enjoy them at a distance if they prefer. The area around Bettws Cedwain is stunning. We couldn't find any signs for local footpaths,so had to go further afield. Walkers may find the lanes nearby intimidating, as they are narrow and twisty, with little or no verges, and the hedges on either side are very tall. A wonderful place to walk nearby is Gregynog Hall, a few miles away, where there are not only formal gardens, but many tracks through woodland and valleys with streams. For golfers there is a super course at Lakeside Golf Club, between Newtown and Welshpool, and they also do great lunches there. We wish the owners well with their plans for expansion and we hope all future visitors to The George have the same great weather as we did.

The cabin had everything we needed. It was very cosy with a fantastic log burner. The hot tub was a real treat after a long day exploring, with lovely views of the surrounding area. A great getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. If you want complete escapism and peace and quiet, this is an ideal place to go.

This log cabin is totally amazing. We stayed for a week there was 3 of us me (Michelle) my partner(chris) and my son (Jayden) who is 2 we just loved this place and we didn't want to leave. The log cabin was very well equipped with everything you could have needed and more. The super king size be was awesome and Jayden found the twin room great with the tv/dvd. Plenty of parking and space outside. The hot tub was the cherry on top of this very amazing place to stay. Beautiful views to wake up to and also our morning visitors the ducks and chickens. They will be very sadly missed. Hele John and George were so welcoming and friendly a great family with a great place to stay.it didn't bother us at all that there was a bit of a drive to the nearest town. The bad points well what bad points there is NONE!!! We totally loved the George and already planning our next holiday.. If you love the country and want a nice place to chill and enjoy your selves then this really is the place to be..
