“What a place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

I have now been to Cae'r Blaidd on 4 occasions & it only gets better! A superbly appointed Victorian house with nothing out of place. The owners (Bob & Vicky) are keen outdoor enthusiasts (climbing & skiing amongst others!) and the whole place oozes their enthusiasm for the great outdoors. Pictures, momentos, memorabilia festoon the building giving it a wonderful homely & incredibly interesting feel. Bob & Vicky are superb & welcoming hosts. Food (cooked by Bob) is of the highest standard and served in a lovely dining room with a magnificent view. The lounge is even nicer. Comfortable & inviting. Likewise the bedrooms. I would highly recommend Cae'r Blaidd. Lots to do in the area (even if raining!). Bob & Vicky are a mine of information about what to do in the area.

Room Tip: All rooms are wonderful, particularly the two at the front facing the hills!

A beautiful house in a wonderful location topped of with fantastic food and all provided by Bob and Vicky who work hard to ensure your stay is comfortable and relaxing. Comfortable furnishings and mod cons (wifi was a nice suprise!) all with wonderful views from every window. A treat indeed.

Room Tip: All the rooms are large and peacefull

We spent a wonderful break at C'aer Blaidd this summer. A very warm welcome greeted us and we were shown to our spotless, beautiful and fascinating bedrooms. The food was absolutely delicious with an extensive drinks menu.The hotel is set in a stunning location with many places to explore nearby. We will definitely be returning next year.

Room Tip: all rooms lovely!

We've been going to Cae'r Blaidd Country House for many years and have stayed for both activity weekends with friends and as B&B guests as a couple.
The house and guest rooms are large and very comfortable, and Bob and Vicky work very hard to keep the place spotlessly clean and in excellent condition. The decor of the house has very much been influenced by the owners' trips to the Alps but not so much that it would not be in keeping with building. The view from the house is amazing (if the weather allows).
Bob and Vicky are wonderful and helpful hosts who will accomodate your needs as much as possible. Both are qualified mountain leader/instructors and are happy to take you out of your comfort zone in a safe and fun way - you will enjoy the fantastic food even more after an exciting day in Snowdonia!
If, on the other hand, you are there for a relaxing break away from it all the owners are equally happy to advise you on the more gentle ways of exploring North Wales.

Having spent two wonderful days here I just thought I'd say what an amazing place, set in a stunning location, over looking the Moelwyn hills.

The house is full of period features, rooms are beautifully furnished and have all the modern amenities a tired holiday maker needs.

The food is 1st class in both quality and quantity, the extra bonus, it was fantastic to find a good selection of single malts to round off the evening.

Our hosts were most friendly and welcoming.

Many thanks,

Jo S.

Such a great find. Vicky & Bob run this beautiful and friendly place with lots of love and care to ensure that every thing is perfect.

The public rooms are beautiful, the location stunning. As for the bedroom which was clean and inviting. The attention to detail is superb.

The evening meals, served under a chandelier with real candles, prepared by Bob were excellent.

The breakfast of freshly prepared cereal and a Welsh Breakfast was just what was needed before a day out in the mountains. Every day a different, tasty morsel was served up at the end of the meal.

We also received excellent advice and route suggestion to 'conquer' Snowdon' at last.

We will come back just to make sure that we were not dreming it all.

Room Tip: Remember there are only three bedrooms. Our room could sleep 4 easily without being cramped. One dou...
