Our stay at Upper Gelli was an absolute dream come true! Bryn and Annelise are unparalleled hosts who went above and beyond to make our experience exceptional. From the moment we stepped into the cottage, we were captivated by its charm and tranquility.Nestled in the midst of stunning scenery,... the views from the cottage were nothing short of breathtaking. It was a therapeutic escape; with the hot tub and sauna adding to relaxation and rejuvenation.The cottage itself is a perfect blend of comfort and luxury, and attention to detail showcased the hosts' commitment to creating a memorable retreat.Without a doubt, Upper Gelli deserves a solid five-star rating and more! We look forward to returning to this hidden paradise and experiencing the magic all over more

Couldn’t have asked for better views, better hosts, better location, facilities…anything really.If I could give more than 5 stars I absolutely would. The layout of the Bach house (which is the cottage we stayed, they have more to suit different needs!), was perfect; it had a hot tub, a sauna, a... beautiful welcome basket filled with local goods, comfy beds, even down to a log burner and ice in the freezer. The cottage was so delightful, in fact, that we spent the majority of the getaway vacation within it!You can easily see that Upper Gelli is a labour of love and has been meticulously thought through down to the smallest details. Hats off to the hosts.My partner and I will be staying again, I also will be booking again for my parents to come and visit in the more

Our Christmas stay at Upper Gelli was absolutely wonderful. The lodge itself was absolutely idyllic - everything was incredibly clean, the bed was comfortable, and the wood burner was a delightfully cosy feature that added to the magic. The magnificent views from the hot tub and the surrounding... hills were the cherry on top (the photos do not do it justice!) The fact the lodge is securely fenced in also meant our dog had a bit of space to explore off lead which was great. Bryn and Annelise went above and beyond to make our stay special, with thoughtful touches like a welcome hamper of local goodies, and beautiful Christmas decorations. This stay was the perfect way to unwind and celebrate the festive season. I highly recommend the Upper Gelli lodge to anyone looking for a peaceful and magical getaway - we hope to return in the not-too-distant future!read more
