Henllys Lodge near Llandovery is a superb eco-friendly detached luxury cottage in a rural location with views of the Welsh hills of the Upper Twyi Valley. This former lodge house has been rebuilt and completely renovated to a very high standard as an eco-friendly and allergy-friendly property - a comfortable and relaxing place to stay.

Carmarthenshire has fantastic landscapes and lots to see and do and is known as 'the Garden of Wales'. There are gardens and nature parks, castles, houses, forests and hills to look at and explore, either on foot, by bike or car. The Upper Twyi Valley is a little-known area of tranquillity and beautiful scenery. Do come and experience it for yourself!

Llandovery, only 2 miles away, is a traditional Welsh market town with a historical heritage dating back to Roman times. Llandeilo is only twenty minutes away and offers some upmarket shops and restaurants also. We are on the western edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Many outdoor pursuits are available in the area.

The Lodge has achieved a 5 star rating from Visit Wales and has a GOLD Green Tourism award and also ‘Walkers Welcome’ and ‘Cyclists Welcome’ award. Heating and hot water are provided through solar hot water panels and ground source heat pumps. The house is insulated with sheep’s wool.

The living room has in its centre a double-sided wood-burning stove which is cosy and comfortable in the colder months.
