“Fantastic Hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Stayed here in June 2013 whilst walking Offas Dyke. The hosts Linda & Glen were very friendly & welcoming. The accommodation & food were great. Most remarkably my walking companion & I underestimated how much the Switchbacks on the path and so when we phone to say we would be Very Late arriving they drove out to rescue us! something I would never have expected but was very thankful for. Having just returned to complete that leg of the walk I am even more impressed that they found us in the middle of nowhere. They do not do evening meals but they drove us to a great nearby pub and picked us up when we'd finished. Lovely people.

Four of us stayed here on our Offas Dyke adventure
Our welcome from Linda with a tray of tea and cake put a smile on our faces after 22 miles!
Glyn drove us to the Lion Inn and brought us back as this superb farmhouse is right on the trail but just out of town.
My room was clean and warm my only grouch was a small shower that produced steam or ice and rarely warm water.
Breakfast & my packed lunch were excellent.
Our boots were stuffed with newspaper then placed to dry by the Aga, great service.

Four of us stayed with Glyn, Linda and Jack The Jack Russell on our Offas Dyke Walk.
Our welcome from Jack dragging a piece of drainpipe down the drive was memorable - putting a smile on our faces after 22 miles!
Glyn took us to the Lion Inn and brought us back as the superb farmhouse is out of town. The food here was excellent and a very friendley atmosphere
Breakfast was the best we have had so far. If you're on the Offas Dyke definitely stay here - you won't be disappointed!

Caemwgal Farmhouse is probably unique amongst bed and breakfast establishments, situated as it is right in the middle of a Civil War battlefield; (The Battle of Montgomery 1644 in case you're interested) However, the place is peaceful enough nowadays, and the three hundred and fifty years old farmhouse has retained many of its original features; a homely and timeless environment in which to unwind and relax. Unfortunately we were only able to stay only one night, having just finished of a section of the Offa's Dyke Path. We were warmly greeted by our Linda, our host, with a pot of tea and slice of home-made cake. The bedrooms are clean and comfortable, with tea making facilities, television and en-suite bathroom. Breakfast was more than adequate, with fruit and cereal followed by an appetising and expansive cooked breakfast. Caemwgal is also conveniently situated for visiting the nearby town of Montgomery; a most pleasant view of which could be had from my bedroom window. Caemwgal Farmhouse is certainly a place to which we hope to return when we tackle the remaining sections of Offa’s Dyke Path next year.

If you're on the Offa's Dyke path near Montgomery we can recommend this B&B. Lovely people, super breakfast, this old farmhouse is a special place. They don't do evening meals but will transport you to the local pub which does there and back.

I always had a single room,...my two girlfriends had a twin that they shared. This room was a bit smallish as they had crammed a 2nd bed in it. I liked the old brick styling of this place...took several pictures outside. Played ball with their friendly jack russell in the early am prior to breakfast. Another made to order lovely meal. Very clean and owners are so very nice.

Very hospitable. a little way (1m) out of the town, but it didn't matter because we were so well looked after. lovely old building. atmospheric. I would like to go back and read some of the great books they had in library.
