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.

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

This wonderful little hotel is perfect for a weekend getaway or holiday but is absolutely perfect for the single (and especially - lady) traveller.

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.

“If you feel cold just ask for the heating to be turned up. No point heating a house for it's ghosts! One room has a bath and shower, the other has a shower, don't forget to be specific about what you would like rather than complain there isn't this or that. All guest houses are different.”
