From start to finish our hosts could not have worked harder to make evrything perfect. Katherine is a wonder woman, baking all her own food, from bread, chutneys, jams, preserves, and even fantastic Gin!! The food was outstanding. The house itself is a show piece, and is the most interesting house i have ever stayed in. Everywhere was spotless but... More

We have just stayed here for the second time and were every bit as impressed with the standard as the first time which was two years ago. Katherine and Carl are perfect hosts and make sure their guests have everything they need. The rooms are spotless and beautifully decorated with antiques. One other guest mentioned that there were no biscuits... More

Excellent country house in an outstanding location. The hosts were professional and friendly, providing a warm welcome and an excellent service. The menu and quality of food was superb and the entire hotel was spotlessly clean. Parking and access was very good and quite a few hours were spent sitting in the grounds admiring the view. Every effort has been... More

We have just enjoyed a wonderful four night stay with Katherine and Carl in their beautiiful home. Sadly the weather was not too kind for the first two days but this did not spoil our trip as we followed Katherine,s advise and spent a wonderful half day at the nearby Wool museum watching the process of making a blanket from...

We have just had a three night stay at this lovely house that is immaculately kept throughout. It was very beautiful and we were made welcome by Katherine and Karl. It is in a great location and Katherine and Carl both made suggestions of walks in the area to try, providing maps and personal recommendation. Our room was very beautiful... More

Just back from a mini break at this excellent Country House, we were made extremely welcome by Katherine and her husband Carl. The house is immaculately kept throughout, we stayed in the Towy guest room overlooking the long driveway and fields in the distance. A very comfortable room with everything you need to hand. On our arrival we were greeted... More

This wonderful little hotel is perfect for a weekend getaway or holiday but is absolutely perfect for the single (and especially - lady) traveller. Katherine and Carl were superb hosts, welcoming, attentive, knowledgeable and superbly professional. As a single traveller Katherine and Carl welcome you to join them in the kitchen in front of the Aga for supper which was... More

As a single woman business traveller staying in hotels and B&Bs can be a dispiriting and depressing experience. In big hotels especially you are reduced just to being a room number but not at Maes -Y- Derw. The welcome is what you would expect from an old friend you haven't seen in a while, the rooms are comfortable and well... More

I stayed in the self catering coach house with my partner and our mothers and it was really lovely. Its very spacious which is quite decieving from the outside. Very comfortable double bed in the main bedroom and a bunk bed in the second bedroom and lovely big leather sofa bed downstairs. The bathroom is small but sufficient. The kitchen... More
