By Lymm: A Lovely Holiday
"A restful holiday in deepest South Wales.
"Blackthorne Lodge was a lovely place to stay. Joe and Julia made us very welcome and the quality of the fittings, furniture and cleanliness was first class. The bungalow is situated in a very pretty spot in the heart of the country, with amazing air..."
By Isobel6565 from Melton Mowbray
"Lovely, peaceful lodge.
"Stayed here in april for 3 days, lovely welcome, fresh fruit and as many fresh eggs as we could eat, very peaceful area, near everything but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet. Very nice owners whom were very helpful."
By Theo and Ria from Neer, The Netherlands
"A very nice high standard Lodge where we stayed for a week.
"We know the area very well therefore we choose the Blackthorne Lodge as a base to touring. Even better is the local pub/restaurant at walking distance.
"We had a very warm welcome from Julia and Joe and we certainly coming back next year!
At last we found our place to stay because we're coming over now for 15 years!!"
