    Great place to vidit
    Great place to visit if you’re in the area. We were a family of 14 - grandparents, teens and child age 12 and all enjoyed the visit. But if history mixed with beautiful gardens. The Icecream isn’t bad either!

    Fun for all
    We visited whilst on holiday this week (4 adults and 4 children aged 2 - 8). Although it was pouring with rain the whole time we were there, we all enjoyed the visit! We didn't go inside the house but had a walk around the gardens and farm yard. There was a children's activity trail to follow which kept the kids entertained for a few wet hours! The fancy dress in the servants courtyard and balance bikes were particular favourites!

    Very interesting venue.
    Eight minutes drive from Aberaeron. Note the House doesn't open until 11am! Lake,Garden,farm and surrounding grounds open at 10am. (National Trust Property) Eco friendly cafe and toilets Well organised refreshments area. Working farm. Some very strange 🤔 pictures on the downstairs walls (my opinion) All in all good 👍 See website for more info.

    Interesting house and gardens but disappointing cafe
    A lovely visit. The house was interesting with information sheets in most rooms. The walks around the grounds were enjoyable. The walled garden contained a bountiful crop of fruit and vegetables. The cafe was most underwhelming with a limited variety of dull food and brusque service. Given the plentiful amount of produce in the walled garden, it seem unbelievable that this doesn’t appear to be available in the onsite catering facilities.

    Holiday with my wife 2023
    Well set up place with a separate car park & cafe area. Then walk up to the house & grounds which contain a fabulous walled gardens, walks around the lake & out buildings. The house was nicely furnished & it has a house cat who wanders around the house meeting all the visitors.

    Just love this place.
    This is the most amazing place. It’s like the family and staff just got up one day and left. The rooms are laid out beautifully and just as they should be and the staff sections are fascinating. They worked so very hard and the kitchens, butter and cheese making rooms, cellars and laundry rooms give an idea of just how hard they did work. Into the gardens for memories of the old types of apples that we could buy and enjoy some years ago and they can be bought from the shop when available. They have pigs and horses, chickens, ducks and a turkey roaming around. The Gelyn Jones display is another part of this brilliantly laid out estate once again worth seeing with reminders of how hard life was in previous times. We took our 15 year old grandson to Llanerchaeron and he thoroughly enjoyed his visit too. In my opinion this is one of the National Trust’s finest properties; so interesting and full of varied walks of life. We will be back!

    Fascinating place and super friendly staff
    The house itself wasn't especially grand (compared to other national trust places) but it had an amazing atmosphere and the staff were so friendly and informative ~ lots of history and interesting extra facts! The farm animals and museum were brilliant too. I loved this place. Well worth a visit.

I cannot believe poor reviews about Contis @ Llan
We have been going there for years since Contis came in. We walk our collie Turner and then have breakfast. We find the staff lovely and friendly and helpful.
You cannot have a huge menu, as too much would be wasted as you cannot count on the weather bringing people out.
Some people are rude to staff and there is no reason for that. Picture a memeber of staff being your fmaily member. It is a sign of the times as people forget their manners if they ever learnt any.
I'm amazed how well the team there do in such a small kitchen.
I miss them when they are closed in winter as our collie stll needs walking and have a bacon/sausage balm and lovely coffee after that is a treat.
We also call in the summer for their super ice-cream for another treat.
I'd not be going there is Contis were not looking after the cafe.

We really enjoyed our visit here, the house and courtyard were fab, so much history. We also loved seeing the farm machinery and other items in the large covered area outside. The cats were cute , one of them super friendly, loving the attention from visitors.
