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!)...More

About the neighbourhood
Cilan has been a part of Llandrillo for centuries with the earliest reference way back in 1400, and is a part of the local history. It is on the site of the former Llandrillo railway, and the embankment and railway bed are still on the property. In fact, the remains of the stone bridge, which once crossed the River Dee, are visible from the back door of the original farmhouse as a reminder of bygone days.

The village of Llandrillo is just a 10 minute walk away where there is a village shop and post office, a lovely pub which is open all day to serve drinks and 2 restaurants. One of which being Michelin starred, Tyddyn Llan.
