“Hay Festival”
Reviewed 5 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Great location! 40 minutes from Hay on Wye for visits to the Festival, but also ideal for visiting tourist spots in the area. Great for walkers!

“Great Break Base”
Reviewed 19 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We stayed in Woodman at Vulcan lodges as a last minute weekend break of 4 nights (we extended one night) and found it an excellent base for exploring Rhayader and the surrounding area.

The facilities provided are to a high standard and well appointed and the property is warm and comfortable. There are lots of plugs for modern electrical gadgets and the Freesat TV and (~1.5mb) internet connection are sufficient to keep even geeks like me entertained. The large bath is great for a soak and warming up after a day outdoors in the mid-Wales countryside. There is also a useful porch area for coat's and muddy boots, or probably even enough space for a couple of bicycles.

Whilst the cottages are located on an A road, they are set back from the road, and its not what Id call a busy road - 1 car a minute during the day, and 1 every 5-10mins after 7pm. Rhayader is about 5 mins drive and Llandridnod Wells is about 10mins away for getting food and supplies. There is also a shop and cafe next door for essentials or breakfast.

My only tip would be, due to the traditional and sympathetic refurbishment, taller people (over 6ft) may wish to choose one of the other cottages downstairs as I suspect they may offer more headroom through the doorways - I banged my head on the lounge/kitchen door 3 or 4 times and Im only 5ft 10. :)

We enjoyed our break and are already thinking about booking again in 2014.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay in the Woodman cottage. We are very pleased you enjoyed your time with us in Mid Wales and we very much appreciate the positive comments you have made. We welcome guest feedback as it helps us in our quest to make our guests' experience as good as possible.

I'm sorry you banged your head on the door into the lounge. I think we will have to put up a 'Mind your head' sign to reduce the chance of this happening.

Thank you again for choosing to stay with us and we look forward to seeing you again at some future date.
