“Family get together”
Reviewed December 21, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Hi,

Myself and my wife rented Cae Madog for three nights for our families so we could have a mini xmas break it the start of December. We live in Dubai so the contact through Trip Advisor is a good idea, plus this aids communication.
The owner was fair with his contact and did help us while we were there, the barn is huge with lots of split levels, staircases and areas for people to escape or group into and even two living rooms (the kids had one and the adults the other) . The open fire was great in the cold night and the hot tub was used by everyone as its in a wooden hut. This however would not be good for the elderly or unsure footed as to access this is down a little steep stairway in the garden and at night you can not see the steps.
The cottage was cosy and more than adiquate with an abundance of character. We even arranged for a large Tesco's delivery to be there as we arrived.
All in all great for family or large group escapes , all our group enjoyed the stay and all the facilities from the pool to the games room got used throughout.

Thanks for your comments. I must agree that the current access to the hot tub cabin is not ideal for those with restricted mobility. We had hoped to put in the new decking and steps before the summer, but we haven't had a chance as we have had so many guests. It is definitely on the cards for the autumn though!

“What a truly magical place!”
Reviewed November 8, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We chose Cae Madog Barn as the venue to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday. And, without exception, we were so pleased we did!
We were a party of 14, with an age range of 6 - 70. We chose to pay extra to have the pool heated and it was worth every penny! The children loved it, and used it non-stop.
The barn itself was great. Lots of lovely seating, a wood burning stove for when it got chilly in the evenings and lovely comfortable beds ensuring a good nights sleep.
Cae Madog really is the ideal venue for a large gathering. We would love to return!

“Cocktails by the pool, in Wales!”
Reviewed June 27, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Spent a lovely long weekend at CMB enjoying cocktails by the pool for my sisters birthday. It's a beautiful well equipped place in a gorgeous location; easily accommodating the 12 of us who stayed for the weekend. Between the Hot tub, heated swimming pool, pool table and other delights there's more than enough luxury to go round, allowing people to go off and do their own thing or enjoy big group meals around the table or a BBQ in the garden.

Owners where spot on. Quick comms on booking, helpful if you need them but not bothering you if you don’t.

A Sat-Nav is needed to find the property (one of us who didn’t have one got a bit lost) as it is pretty remote. You’ll also need to bring as many supplies as you can with you as it’s a good 10 miles to the nearest supermarket.

Overall though it's the best holiday rental I’ve ever stayed in and would definitely recommend to any groups of sensible adults or families looking for a lovely relaxing getaway.

“A little gem set in a secluded location”

The barn was situated in the most peaceful surroundings, quiet and tranquil just what we wanted for a long weekend break. It was extremely homely and comfortable we wanted for nothing as the barn was fully equipped with everything we needed, the facilities were perfect, great fun was had in the swimming pool which was nicely heated too. We can't comment on the surrounding area as we never moved from the property. The property is remote and a car is definitely required to travel anywhere. A fantastic relaxed time was had by all, we will be back
