Activities

Golf

On our doorstep is Llandrindod Wells Golf Club with it's renowned 18 hole golf course.  Perhaps best described as an "Upland Links" course, it provides a true test for golfers of all abilities -  the 9th fairway and green can be seen from the window of your lodge.   

The clubhouse restaurant has fantastic views and offers high quality food presented well from a comprehensive menu. The Stewards Simon and Beth are welcoming and friendly and always available to help and their prices are very reasonable.  Book early for the very popular weekend carvery.  

Bird Watching

The most natural and rich habitats in the area are hanging woodlands - wooded slopes and gorges typically consisting of oak and much favoured by the speciality birds of Mid-Wales; wood warbler, pied flycatcher and redstarts as well as all three woodpeckers and typical upland stream birds such as dipper and grey wagtail. 

Mid-Wales is also the stronghold of the remnant red kite population that survived the extinction in the rest of the British Isles. You can watch the Red Kites being fed at Gigrin Farm just a 10 minute drive away. But you don't have to go even that far to see this stunning bird because a pair of red kites nest close to our lodges and can be seen almost daily, circling overhead.


Fishing

 The river Ithon is a major upper Wye tributary flowing out of the Radnorshire Forest into the main river near Newbridge-on-Wye. This medium-sized river is host to a number of fish species although it is probably grayling and trout fishing that it is best known for. Much of the Ithon flows leisurely over gravel and combined with open banks, this makes large sections of it some of the easiest to access fishing in the Wye catchment.  Click HERE for more info.    

Painting and Photography

  If you enjoy painting or photographing rivers, distant mountains, open moors, farms and other landscape gems, you will be over-loaded with subjects.  The area also abounds with wildlife such as hares, otters, badgers and wild ponies.  Over 80 species of birds have been spotted on the nearby golf course. 

Well worth a visit is Erwood Station Gallery  where you can  follow the riverside Nature Trail along the river Wye.

Walking & Cycling

There are too many fantastic routes to list here for mountain biking or road cyclists but we provide a file of suggested routes in each lodge.  We can also arrange for guided mountain biking by very experienced qualified guiders if required.  

Two examples of local rides (starting and finishing 3 miles from Little Hill Lodges) and showing the type of countryside you'll be able to experience can be found here and again here
