You only need to take a quick peek at the website to know that this is one very special, very different place. Upper Gelli is a lodge, painted an arresting shade of blue, set in green rolling border country near Welshpool. Within, it’s quirky, inventive and eminently luxurious, with a living space that mixes (and nicely matches) a chandelier with state-of-the-art woodburning stove, creamy slatted wood walls with contemporary furnishings. There’s also a high-spec, high-end kitchen.

The two bedrooms – with comfy brass beds – are vintage styled to give a chic yet homely feel, and can be configured as four singles or two super kings. A lot of thought has gone into Upper Gelli and the comfort of its guests. You’ll be greeted with a complimentary basket of local produce, enjoy luxury Welsh toiletries and beauty products, and be able to peruse books and maps. It doesn’t end there. Ros and Gary will be only too happy to advise on the local food, wine, art and music scene, local events and walking routes. They will even put you in touch with beauty salons, spas and a personal chef. Upper Gelli, once part of a working dairy farm, is surrounded by acres of undulating hills, vales and woods. Its terrace is the perfect place to ‘stand (or sit) and stare’, in the words of the famous poem by WH Davies. Or enjoy a soak in the hot tub. As you do, you may well catch site of red kites.

Also at Upper Gelli, for those looking for something different, there is a Shepherd’s Hut situated in it’s own private grounds. Built to an original 19th century design but with all the comforts of today, this unique accommodation has a double bed, en-suite shower room and log-burning stove. A smaller ‘mini’ hut close by has a compact kitchen and dining space with an additional toilet. Enjoy a very special cooking experience all year round in our wonderful BBQ Hut. Authentic Arctic Cabin including cosy reindeer skins. All fuel, cooking implements and crockery provided. Eat in the warmth of the cabin or enjoy alfresco eating with stunning views. Available to our guests at no additional cost.
