Just a few miles from the popular marketing hub of Newtown, Kites Nest sits majestically at the helm of a hidden valley with lush green fields, ancient woodland and a flourishing array of natural wildlife. This peaceful oasis feels a million miles from the megalomania of the modern world and provides the perfect tonic from the stresses and strains of everyday life.

This often-overlooked part of Wales has plenty to offer with a vast array of beautiful countryside to explore. What's more, its central location makes it well placed to explore much of Wales' itself with the beaches of Aberdyfi, Snowdonia National Park, The Shropshire Hills, and even The Brecon Beacons all within an hours' drive.

However, you may simply want to relax and unwind in this gorgeous natural setting with just the birds and the bees for company. Sitting on the valley slope, this handcrafted lodge perfectly soaks up the sun as it sweeps through the valley and enjoys simply stunning views of the tranquil countryside surrounds.

There are plenty of lazier outings on offer with a path from the lodge itself meandering towards the ancient woodland behind. What's more, Newtown is only a few miles away, with tea rooms, bistros and lovely restaurants should you fancy a bite to eat.  

Nestled alongside ancient woodland, the lodge sits at the top of a large grazing field with a variety of animals wandering past from sheep and their lambs to calves and horses. The animals are separated from the grounds of the lodge, but provide a charming outlook as they amble cheerily through the meadows.


Visitors are welcome to witness the farming activities on the owner's farm. Lambing, feeding lambs or calves can be arranged on request. 


When you take a second to stop and listen, the air is infused with a soothing babble of the Brechan brook and the chatter of woodland birds in the trees. The sites natural value is reinforced by the blossoming population of Barn Owls and Red Kites.


Endangered Red Kites are seen flying daily overhead from their nesting sites in the woods behind, while at night hear the hypnotic hoot of owls hunting in the darkness. The natural murmurings of this secluded location offer a real sense of wild serenity.


The brand new lodge is effortlessly luxurious, while the sweeping glass façade creates a gorgeous panoramic of the valley below. Spot the mist lingering in the valley at dawn or glimpse one of the many Red Kites gliding on the thermals in the afternoon. The large windows are a portal into a world of natural wonder and are perfect for enjoying this enchanting location.

Bask in the warming rays of the sun on the south-facing balcony or soak away your day in the hot tub spa with a glass of bubbles. Kites Nest is the perfect place to get away from it all.
