Hunter Lodges Winter Retreat Review

Category: Suite Treats, What's New

What better way to spend a crisp chilly weekend than in your very own cosy countryside retreat?

Welcome to Hunter Lodges which, according to my four year old, was 'our new house'. Yes, only for the weekend I'm afraid dear.

Arriving at the Hunter Lodges feels worlds away from the bustling Celtic Manor Resort of which it is a part of. Nestled in the Usk Valley overlooking the Ryder Cup Twenty Ten Course, you could be mistaken for being out in the sticks rather than the convenient location just off the M4.

Lodge Welcome

I give you the beauty of Hunter Lodges - the feeling of countryside tranquillity combined with the convenience of a five star hotel on your doorstep. The freedom and five star facilities combined meant that on arrival we went from a sauna and hot tub on the deck to Welsh steak and fine wine in Rafters restaurant all in a matter of hours.

Pamper 

Breakfast was, of course, at a countryside pace, we rustled up a full Welsh Breakfast in our top of the range kitchen with our Gourmet Breakfast Hamper whilst admiring the spectacular views in our PJs. (We arrived in darkness, what a surprise to wake up to!)

After a day of activities at the nearby Resort Hotel - think swinging through trees and swimming under stars - what better way to end the day than snuggling up with a blanket (how very thoughtful) in front of the log fire burning. 

Cosy2

We loved our weekend and felt so at home, the little one was extremely disappointed upon discovering this wasn't our new permanent abode. It was a self catering holiday dream; freedom and space with a five star bonus. We'd move in tomorrow if we could, in fact, can we throw in an offer?
