The Shepherd's Hut @ Upper Gelli. A quick one night escape from the hustle and bustle of city life – and couldn’t have asked for more! The little touches on arrival – welsh cakes & bara brith, music in each room – makes you know that your hosts care about your stay. Sitting out watching the stars in the evening with a glass of red, then with a brew seeing the mist burn off in the morning a highlight and the BBQ hut! Costing up one of those for the garden…! Thank you Ros & Gary for such a wonderful stay. Will be back for 2 nights next time… El & Ross

The Lodge @ Upper Gelli. We didin't think our expectations could be exceeded (as this occasion is our third time at Upper Gelli!) but yet again they were! Coming here in December and experiencing the Christmas decorations was extra special, they are as subtle and tasteful as everything else you have done here. We arrived from hectic London life not really feeling the festive spirit but the beauty of the Lodge and the hot tub on a frosty December morning soon lifted our spirits! As ever we leave relaxed yet ready to return! Thank you so much. xx

It was our first wedding anniversary weekend and we thank you for the splendid time had here, let alone the card and prosecco!! We will book to return again. We were blessed with seeing at least one of the red kites. Not even Storm Callum could spoil our time here - the weather wasn't too bad, really. We expected some rain, what with it being Wales and all.....The hot tub was the number one thing we'd wanted on our getaway and it is immense. The surroundings made it sublime, then bettered by the roar of the fire! Thanks again!

I could not believe how simply wonderful the Hut, the views and the hosts were. Thank you so very much.

The Lodge is absolutely fantastic: quiet, serene, thoughtful. As we said in passing, having found the farm shop and the butchers in Welshpool we felt no need to leave the peacefulness of the Lodge, the kitchen alone has everything you want (complete with fresh herbs) and the view from the dinner table cannot be beaten by any restaurant. So with that in mind we would like to come back please!

Roisin & Phil. April 2018. Derbyshire.
Another wonderful stay @ Upper Gelli and our first time in a hot tub which we loved. REALLY going to miss that. Again everything was perfect. Tanks so much for all the goodies - the Easter decorations are great - really make each stay special. Totally recommend Pistyll Rhaedr Waterfall (near Llanrhaedt-ym-Monchant) esp if it has been raining. We caught it in full torrent + were literally blown away. (Cafe wasn't great though - or maybe we caught it at a bad time) Elan Valley & Hell Fire Pass - stunning views and walks. Enjoyed the Craft Centre @ Corris and the underground boat @ King Arthurs Labyrinth (kids would love this) Barmouth Beach (Mermaid Fish and Chips) is beautiful even in the rain. So back to work - sigh! But thoroughly relaxed - thanks Ros & Gary. We will return!
Roisin & Phil. April2018. Derbyshire.
Perfect place to come and relax after the madness of a wedding. Couldn't have asked for a more ideal mini-moon! See you again soon I'm sure! P.S. Thank you for the lovely newlywed touches! Really made us feel special!

We feel indebted to Instagram for having posted a photo of your beautiful Lodge last summer and which prompted us to find your property and place a booking for Valentine's, 8 months in advance.😃 And what a good decision this was!! We've had a fantastic time enjoying the beautiful surroundings and views across the Welsh landscape. We loved using the hot tub and stove to keep us warm during the cold nights! The lodge was clean on arrival and it was obvious that the owners love what they are doing from the outset. A wonderful box of treats and local produce was prepared for us, Ros took her time to show us around, local walking guide were available, everything was spot on! Ros, we want to thank you for your excellent service from start to finish, we've had a fabulous time! I hope you have a wonderful year ahead and hope to meet you in the future again! Future guests - make sure you visit Powis Castle & dine at Checkers!!

"A perfect house, whether you like food or sleep, or story-telling, or singing, or just sitting and thinking best, or a pleasant mixture of them all! Merely to be there was a cure for weariness, fear and sadness." (Guess who has been reading lord of the Rings again?) Thanks Ros & Gary for everything - the Welcome Hamper, beautiful Christmas decorations etc. The Prosecco was much appreciated. Loving our first time in the Lodge - immaculate! Can't wait to return at Easter. Happy New Year! X

Lowri & Dafydd. November 2017.Gwynedd.
Gary & Ros. We would just like to thank you for the most amazing night! The Shepherd's Hut is out of this world and with the added bonus of the BBQ Hut our stay was magical. We were very much in need of a break and your little spot of heaven provided us with the relaxation we needed. From the squirrels to the sheep and the mountains to the fields the place is beyond idyllic. There isn't a touch you haven't added and our stay was perfect. Thank you for one of our most memorable trips... xx
Sarah & Tony. November 2017. Lancashire.

Will be back.Well done Ros on your attention to detail and special touches like prosecco and card for us.Thanks.x

Ros & Gary, where do we begin? This place is fantastic! All your home comforts in an idyllic setting. The attention to detail and extra touches makes this place so special.

Dan & Stef.September 2017. Montgomeryshire.
What an incredible find! Such a peaceful 3 days away from the hustle and bustle of life. You really have catered for everything here and we felt at home as soon as we walked through the door. A trip to the Castle was a must and we ate far too many scones and cream. You definitely went above and beyond and your attention to detail is incredible. We are sad to be going home and certainly will return. Highly recommended to friends and family. Thank you so much Ros & Gary. We will be back.
Sally & Matt. September 2017. Birmingham.
Well, we said in our last stay (6th-11th June!) that the only solution to leaving here was to come back, I can't believe that we've been lucky enough to only wait 3 months! Sometimes the memory of a magical place can be tarnished by returning there, that is DEFINITELY not the case with Upper Gelli! It has been just as special to stay here again. Thank you so much for all that you put in to this wonderful retreat. We'll be back again!
Beverley & Chris. September 2017. London.
Lovely stay once again in Gelli Uchaf - the Lodge is perfect as usual - thank you for the hamper and beautiful fresh flowers.Herb garden outside kitchen door is a bonus. Everything is immaculate and we also enjoyed a meal in the BBQ hut! Steam Gala on the Welshpool to Llanfair Railway was excellent particularly the fire works display in the evening. Looking forward to coming back soon.
Cerian & William. September 2017.South Wales
Our second time at Upper Gelli and still as magical and peaceful as last time. Thank you Ros & Gary for the card and wine and also the basket of goodies: they were lovely. Thank you for everything. Dioch yn fawr iawn.
Geraint & Sue. September 2017. Pembrokeshire.
It's so lovely to be back again - we both love the magic of your very special Shepherd's Hut. A beautiful hidden gem, we're so glad to have found it. See you again sometime.
Samantha & Michael. August 2017. Wirral.
Thank you for a wonderful 7 days, and the work you both, Ros and Gary, have done to make our stay memorable. With the hot tub, goodies and seven days of good weather we are now fully recharged and invigorated to face what life has in store for us when we return home, i.e. two small grand daughters. Thank you once again.❤️
Margaret & David. August 2017. Derbyshire.
We've had a wonderful few days in your beautiful Lodge. A perfect setting for our honeymoon. Views, hot tub and extra touches were much appreciated. (Delicious cheese, even better with prosecco!) We enjoyed Powis Castle, a walk around Welshpool (great walking books) and a trip to Llanberis. We will be back to explore more.
Harriet & Daniel. August 2018. Cornwall.
Dear Ros & Gary from the moment we arrived we have felt Welcome, Relaxed and at home. The Lodge is Beautiful and exceeded all our expectations. We have loved our Welcome Basket and Anniversary gift, it was so very kind and thoughtful of you. We couldn't have picked a better place to spend our 10th Wedding Anniversary together. We will most definitely be back.
David & Aimee. August 2017. Essex.
Deborah and Andrew on their 2nd Anniversary which we thought was "Wood" hence we booked this beautiful wooden hut and what a wonderful mistake we made! Totally enchanted by everything........ Thank you once again for your kindness, thoughtfulness and for giving us the opportunity to stay in such a beautiful, tranquil and enchanting place. You have given us a treasured memory for our second "wood" anniversary and I can't wait to conjure up another reason to return.

Dear Ros & Gary. Our second, and thankfully longer, visit to your beautiful lodge. It is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy ourselves.

Jayne & John. July 2017. Staffordshire.
What a perfect location. I'm glad I'm picky and spent the extra time looking for the best location for the perfect proposal!! Although we weren't at home, we sure felt like it. When I buy a plot of land in England, I'll be fashioning it after this cozy spot! (Hot tub and all) Such attention to detail.
Craig & Gemma. June 2017. USA & Staffordshire.

AJ & Tristan. July 2017. Wiltshire.
Thank you for a lovely stay in the Shepherd's Hut! This place is (somehow) even more beautiful in real life. Photos cannot do this hut or the surroundings justice. We had such a relaxing stay and made use of the fire pit, the BBQ Hut (amazing), and even gave the indoor fire a go for half an hour. We don't want to leave! Thanks for being so helpful and considerate.
Sam & Gary. July 2017. Liverpool.
"What an amazing place" You have truly thought of everything to make this a perfect retreat. had a great 2 days of relaxation. fab views, great walks and one hot hot tub! It's a hidden gem that we will tell everyone about. Thanks for the goodies!

Thanks for the basket of welcome goodies. The melted cheese and crackers were Fab! Top weekend.
Craig & Sarah. June 2017. Cheshire.
Wow, what a truly incredible gem you have created here! A stunning location enhanced further by your impeccable taste which shines through in every detail! We have both had to travel a great deal for work and have occasionally stayed in what people call the 'world's finest' but I can genuinely say that we've never felt so relaxed and at home as here. Had a wonderful few days, the steam train and Powis castle are well worth a visit. the recommendations to shop at Rikki Lloyd's butchers & the Derwen Farm Shop must be followed! both fantastic. Thank you Ros & Gary so much for use of the BBQ hut, what a phenomenal idea! There can't be a better location than this for a hot tub! It's wonderful to sit, relax and watch the seasons pass down the valley (all in one day!) We've enjoyed every moment, We don't want to leave, the only solution is to come back! Thank you!
Beverley & Chris. June 2017. London
A perfect romantic hideaway in a stunning position. Thank you for making us feel so welcome and the little extras inside the hut were very thoughtful. Waking up to gorgeous sunshine over the hills made for the most relaxing morning. Really hope to visit again one day.
Samantha & Michael. June 2017. Wirral.
Thank you for an amazing time. incredible views, attention to detail and you've sold Chris on the hot tub. His favourite new toy😃 This place has really made Wales come alive for us. Heartfelt thanks!!❤️
