As I mentioned in a couple of my recent posts, I was treated to a weekend away for my birthday with my boyfriend. We have stayed in a lodge before (click here to read about that one) and we both enjoyed it so I was looking forward to the same kind of experience again. This time we stayed at Penllwyn Lodges in Powys, Wales.

As soon as we drove into the park we noticed just how beautiful the surroundings were! We were greeted by a few farm animals including a Llama, a donkey, a couple of pigs and sheep, which was really cute! We checked in at reception and were greeted by Sam the Parrot! We were shown the directions to our lodge by the lovely staff, and although it was right at the top of a rather steep hill, the roads were easy to drive up and we parked right outside the lodge, so great access!

We stayed in the Mountain Lodge, which is a multi-storey lodge and sleeps up to 6 people, however there were only the 2 of us staying, so it was super spacious for us! There is a balcony at the front of the lodge overlooking the beautiful woodland and Welsh hills, we stopped to admire the view with a cuppa for a while!

Inside the lodge, the ground floor comprised of a large kitchen/dining/lounge area with huge windows overlooking the golf course, three reasonably sized bedrooms, and a small but modern shower room. On the first floor was the cutest/cosiest lounge area I've ever seen. Although I personally found the decor a little outdated, it was very clean and well maintained and it fits in with the surroundings really well!

We did go for a wander along the canal and around the fishing pool and gardens which is home to ducks and swans. On site there are 18 other lodges,and a golf club and restaurant. It was just really nice to be outside and enjoying the countryside to be honest! Even though it was winter there was still plenty of wildlife around, the squirrels were always outside the lodge when we looked out the windows so that was nice too, and I heard many different birds around, so great if you're a wildlife lover!

 We enjoyed each others company, and it was lovely to "pretend" it was like our own little house and not have to answer to anyone! We are both still living at home with our parents so don't get our own space very often! We cooked our own meals and had plenty of booze and just watched TV and films and chilled out. Just what we needed, a very relaxing and stress-free break, together!

So a huge thank you to my lovely boyfriend for organising this, and we are looking forward to our next break which I've booked for us for Valentines! ;) ❤
