FAQs

This is our first lodge break, what will it be like?

Expect a cosy retreat with all the comforts of home, but surrounded by the tranquillity of nature. Many lodges in South Wales offer stunning views, whether it's rolling hills or forest canopies. Facilities can range from basic to luxury, with some boasting hot tubs and private decks.

What should I pack when visiting South Wales?

Pack for all weathers – a waterproof jacket and layers are key. Don't forget your walking boots to explore the trails. If your lodge has a hot tub, bring swimwear. Essentials like toiletries and a first aid kit are a must, and maybe some binoculars for wildlife spotting.

Can you park outside the lodge?

Most lodges in South Wales provide parking, often right beside your accommodation. It's super convenient for unloading your gear. If you're staying at a larger resort like Bluestone National Park Resort, you'll find central parking as they operate a car-free policy to preserve the tranquillity.
