“A Winter Wedding - with free snow - February 23rd 2013”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

My husband, Ed, and I had the most fantastic wedding weekend thanks to Jake, Vicky and their wonderful staff. Their home, which became our home for the weekend, is absolutely stunning, and in a rural location with beautiful views. The family house is not a hotel, but with the well-stocked bar, excellent customer service, modern bedrooms and superb food, you could easily mistake it for a 5* country escape. The venue is large, with lovely grounds, but also has a very cosy and intimate feel, which allowed everyone who attended to feel that they could relax and enjoy the weekend and wedding day. Vicky met up with us several times prior to the wedding to ensure she understood our requirements down to the smallest detail, and on the day ran everything better than we could have imagined possible! We had the fine dining menu on the day, which was delicious and far superior to any wedding menus I have had previously. The buffets and breakfasts prepared by Vicky and her staff were also amazing, and more plentiful than I had hoped for.

It is a testament to Caer Llan that not only have several of our guests commented that it was the best wedding they have ever been to, but also that we can’t wait to celebrate another special occasion there in the future. Thank you so much Vicky and Jake for giving us everything we could have wanted.

We booked our wedding weekend at Caer Llan back in May 2011 for April 2013. Even though the building was still undergoing renovation and redecoration at the time, Jake and Vicky's enthusiasm and vision of what Caer Llan would be gave us the confidence to book. We are so glad we did! Through 2 years of planning, Vicky was on hand to answer our numerous e-mail queries and they were happy for us to book an appointment to come to Caer Llan and look around whenever we needed to, this included doing our pre-wedding shoot in the grounds. We wanted a wedding where our friends, family and dogs could stay with us and relax in an informal atmosphere and Vicky and Jake did everything they could to make this happen. Vicky's guidance and advice on timings etc was invaluable and made the whole weekend run like clockwork. All of our guests commented on how beautiful Caer Llan is, how comfortable the rooms are and how relaxed and seamless the weekend was. Our nieces and nephews loved the open space and the wii and projector screen provided. We have had numerous comments about how amazing Jake's hog roast was too! Our memories of our wedding are absolutely incredible, a big part of this is due to holding it at Caer Llan. We cannot thank Jake and Vicky enough!

Room Tip: We used Room 1 as the bridal suite and there was plenty of room for the bridal party, photographer a...

I've lost count the number of times my company have used this wonderful venue!
Yet again, Jake and Vicky are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much for them!
Service is second to none as too is the quality of food!
Great venue for our company's 2 day team build!
We will definitely be back!
Thanks again both for a fantastic time!

My husband and I chose Caer Llan because of the family feel, the beautiful views and the intimacy of the venue - everything we wished for became a reality. The first sunny day for ages meant drinks on the terrace overlooking the most amazing views - something everyone commented on. Jake and Vicky worked tirelessly to ensure our day ran as smoothly as possible and nothing was touch. The food was outstanding and the recommendations also amazing. It really was the best day of or lives and the venue made the day exactly as we dreamed. Thank you so much.

Stayed there for 2 nights from 5th April for my daughters wedding. Incredible place in a beautiful setting, could not have been better. The sun shone on the day (see Sunnynats review). Jake and Vicky ensured everything went to plan. Rooms are great, food was excellent, and they could not do enough for us. I would recommend this venue to anyone planning a wedding.

We stayed here recently for a wedding. We got lucky with the weather as it was the first day of warm sunshine we've had in ages. The views are gorgeous. We had an amazingly comfortable nights sleep in our room. We weren't in the main house, but it's only a few steps away from the front door. The way the wedding reception ran was really smooth and the food was great. The staff were lovely and we were really well looked after. Only minor complaint I could have was no wifi in the rooms away from the main house (very little phone reception so wifi was helpful - it was free to use in the main house though!) and breakfast was quite early. You do need a car though, its not easily accessible using public transport. But all in all I would recommend it and would stay there again.
