Commitment to combining luxury and comfort whilst considering environmental impact is evident as soon as you enter the lodge.
The central passageway has been restored but completely glazed in, with a two-storey structural glass wall at the rear. Together with the largest all-glass roof in the UK they combine to harvest solar energy and flood the interior with daylight. At night, the rock face at the rear is awash with white light and the stars twinkle through the glass roof.
The guest rooms are all designed to make the most of the magnificent Welsh landscape and the ensuite bathrooms are crafted in high quality natural materials.

Their aim has been to create calm, peaceful spaces that promote relaxation and wellbeing, delivered with discreet, contemporary luxury.
Underfloor heating is provided throughout, powered by a log-fired biomass boiler, which also supplies the hot water in the winter, although this is heated using solar power in the summer. Extensive heat and sound insulation has been specified throughout to improve comfort and conserve energy.
