I couldn't recommend Cilan Farmhouse enough! Stayed here with old school friends as part of our 30th Birthday celebrations and everything was just perfect. The house is stunning with beautiful decoration, all large bedrooms with en-suites (so no arguments over who got the best room!) and the location is very idyllic. Our days were spent walking, relaxing in front of the fire, fishing and enjoying the gorgeous hot tub! In the evenings we had fun cooking together in the large kitchen followed by eating together at the huge dining table. On the Sunday afternoon, we also stumbled upon the fantastic Tyddyn Llan, a Michelin starred restaurant that's just a short walk away and does a great Sunday Lunch offer. We are already looking at booking this cottage for next year and making it a yearly event. Thank you Rivercatcher!
Booked Cilan Farmhouse for our Family and dogs to all spend Christmas together! On arrival we were delighted with the cottage of which we already had high expectations from the reviews. Jen had decorated the cottage with not 1 but 2 Christmas Trees in the lounges along with other decorations. It is so peaceful and homely there and along with the large size hot tub on the patio and the river at the bottom of the gardens (which are so safe for the dogs). I would highly recommend the cottages and will certainly be back for another stay soon.
Our group included 6 adults, a 3 month old baby, a one year old and a two year old! We chose the property as it appeared luxury/high end and we knew we would be spending a lot of time in the property due to the time of year and the younger members of our party requiring an early bed time – We were not disappointed. This was the best holiday house I have every stayed in.
The house was spotless, warm and huge whilst retaining the cozy nature befitting a farmhouse in Wales.
Booking, communication and arrival/check in were faultless. The grounds of the house are fantastic, river views, large fenced garden (gates to access the river). In the garden was an excellent hot tub with multiple jets and lights. This was always available to use and towels were provided in the lounge.
The lounge was large, comfortable and warm with plenty of seating a modern television and access to the garden. TV Room was used for buggy’s, coats etc, but is also a large comfortable space. The dining room is charming, rustic and spacious with fisherman style lights and a large wood burning stove. Seating for 10 is easily achieved.
The kitchen is large, well equipped, high quality with lots of storage and a huge fridge, access to the garden here was handy. An additional breakfast table is between the lounge and kitchen as is a downstairs bathroom, both useful.
All bedrooms are ensuite, very tasteful and clean with super comfy beds and high quality bathrooms. Games room (separate from house but literally 10 metres) has a good quality table tennis table, football table and wooden train set for the kids.
The local pub is a belter, proper old school boozer with good home cooked food and less than a mile away (nice 20 min walk). En-route just happens to be a Michelin starred restaurant – Couldn’t really make this up!
The owners clearly take great pride in the cottages as the others appeared maintained to the same high standards. Would definitely visit again.
This was a weekend stay for 10 work friends.. the accommodation is excellent, spacious and very well equipped with plenty of space for relaxing including 2 lounges spacious kitchen and dining room and ample hot tub overlooking the River , perfect for relaxing. Each bedroom has its own ensuite and the beds are so comfortable. All the staff are very helpful and the attention to detail is outstanding. The welcome basket also added to the experience and I cannot fault anything . Thankyou Jen and all the staff including Aled who was so helpful.
We had a lovely long weekend at Cilan Farmhouse. The house is really well set up with plenty of room for our group of 9 friends to relax in the hot tub, lounge in the living room or enjoy meals around the large table. Each bedroom has its own en suite with lovely Orla Kiely toiletries and very comfortable beds! The view across to the river and the hills beyond was lovely to wake up to (and see from the private hot tub!). The house is well placed to explore Snowdonia, Anglesey and the north Wales coast - we also went to Portmeirion. The welcome basket provided was amazing, with lovely local foods including everything you'll need for a cooked breakfast. Definitely recommend for a relaxing group holiday.
