It is a rare treat to discover somewhere that you could describe as faultless, but this is genuinely how we feel about our stay at Llanwilcae Farm. Impressed by the beautiful pictures on their website and previous Trip Advisor reviews my expectations were already high and yet they were still exceeded from start to finish. The farm sits in a stunning Welsh valley location, which we were lucky to visit in all its autumnal glory. The accurately labelled luxury accommodation is provided in a self-contained barn conversion, which must be at least triple the size of the largest 5 star hotel suite, and has been furnished with great artistic flair to feel both stylish and comfortable. Arriving weary from our journey we were warmly welcomed by the lovely Diana who settled us in with delicous cakes, drinks and a roaring woodburner. Later in the evening Diana returned with members of her charming family in tow, delivering the most amazing meal of Beof Bourguignon and Pavlova. We sank into our comfy beds that night feeling truly pampered. In the morning we enjoyed a delicious and extremely generous breakfast, served in the oak extension of the farmhouse, made all the more enjoyable by chatting with Diana and looking out at the beautiful views.
Our one night stay was planned as a stop over on the way to our holiday in a cottage deeper in Wales, but we had so enjoyed ourselves we decided to return for an extra night on our journey home. A return visit in less than a week must surely be a good recommendation!
As we returned to Llanwilcae it felt like we had come to stay with friends. Our second visit brought yet more delicous food (Diana really is an amazing cook - I am still dreaming of her Lemon Merangue Roulade), a fabulous nights rest and lots of laughter and great hospitality. This really must be the best B & B in Wales, no anywhere!
