I first visited Cae'r Blaidd in 2014. Last week it was my privilege to return with seven friends and introduce them to this very special place. Bob & Vicky are hosts par excellence and have created something truly unique with Cae'r Blaidd. Warm hospitality, a beautiful home, fantastic food & drink, expert mountaineering advice - all of this awaits you!...

Cae'r Blaidd is even more special than I had remembered and the hosts Vicky and Bob remain warm, welcoming, extremely knowledgable about the area and keen to advise you on the best adventures! Breakfast and dinner are equally...

Having stayed at Cae'r Blaidd with our hosts Bob and Vicky, several times before, we introduced some friends who were totally knocked out with the views, rooms, food and ambience. The ambience in the house is quiet and relaxing luxury but if you want excitement, Bob and Vicky will introduce you to a comprehensive range of outdoor activities. The food...

Our fifth visit to this beautiful house and it keeps getting better and better. The views are amazing, the house is stunning and the hospitality is first class. The breakfasts are delicious and hugely filling but the evening meals are outstanding. This really is the best B&B ever. Thanks so much Bob and Vicky for being simply wonderful.
