Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Accommodation, food and comfort all excellent, thanks to the attention to detail paid by Adrian and Jeff, all of which made our four night stay unforgettable. Quiet garden to sit with a glass of wine before dusk listening to the birdsong, and friendly hens which provided superb eggs for breakfast. Never had a better breakfast to start our day exploring west Wales.

We stayed in the self contained cottage for a wonderful week. Chickens greet you each morning to say hello and partial to a few bits of bread ! Cows in field just a metre from kitchen window and often a sheep or two in the garden. The B&B was next door if you need anything but also felt very alone which is just what we needed for good break. No Wi-Fi in cottage but can use the main house if needed but we enjoyed a Wi-Fi free week. Really hope to return very soon. Some lovely beach walks and the Elan Valley a good drive away but a beautiful route and well worth the effort. Carmarthen itself is limited but surrounded by lovely places and we found the Warren restaurant which had great veggie options which seemed a rarity on whole in Wales

A & J are fantastic hosts. Wonderful cooked breakfasts using locally sourced produce. Our room (The Pink Room) was spacious and comfortable with a roll-top bath and separate shower. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Cilwen Country House to friends and family.

A lovely quiet country house - remote but only 15min drive to nearby Carmarthen and a little further afield to some stunning beaches. The hosts were welcoming and friendly. Everything was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was delicious - all home made, home grown or bought locally. I thought this was great value too and I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.

We were feeling fed up having a holiday cancelled at the last minute so decided to have a few days away and came across this B&B just by chance on the internet. We had a wonderful 4 night stay and everything was absolutely top notch. Room was warm, comfortable , excellent facilities ,lovely bathroom and shower ,would loved to have tried the beautiful deep free standing bath but being rather mature was worried I might not be able to get out so I decided to stick with the power shower. Lovely and peaceful surroundings ,you do need a car though it's quite remote but that's what we wanted and only a short drive into Carmarthen where there are plenty of places to eat. Breakfast was amazing so much choice I didn't bother with the full English, pancakes with apples, yoghurt and maple syrup were my favourite and I succumbed to those twice, the cilwen crumble another favourite with granola, seasonal fruits yoghurt and oats ,omelettes yes I tried them all absolutely delicious followed by homemade toasted bread and homemade jams. Adrian and Jeff were so nice and friendly nothing was too much trouble for them .loved the chickens and guinea fowl that serenaded us while we are our breakfast. We will definitely come back had a lovely few days and there was absolutely nothing not to like .

A really lovely B&B run by Adrian & Jeff who make you feel so welcome - and as exLondoners kinda know what you need to escape and relax. Hence a beautiful renovated Welsh farm house, absolutely delicious breakfast (home made bread, cinnamon pancakes etc) lovely Welsh toiletries and the whole place smelt like just the best spa! We only stayed for one quick overnight stay - on a Monday night as we were picking up our pup from the nearby Dog House (Talog). We'd definitely stay again if we need to. We stayed in the large Pink Room - which had pretty much everything you need and expected. We especially appreciated the selection of teas (our essentials of earl grey and herbal) plus Adrian made sure we had fresh milk, wine glasses, sandwiches for our long next day (on request). However - do note re. the local area that a Monday night, in March, in post Covid Carmarthen has very limited evening meal options - so do check beforehand !! Pizza express saved the day!

A 4-night break at the beginning of October for a liitle much needed recuperation - absolutely wonderful, and just what we needed. Adrian and Jeff are wonderful hosts and we couldn't have asked for more. Adrian looked after us immaculately, and if you're offered the chance of an evening meal, don't hesitate for a moment, Jeff is a fabulous chef!! It's rural, so if that's not what you're after then look elsewhere. The peace and tranquility of the Welsh countryside around Abernant was just what we wanted, and didn't disappoint. The house is old, quirky, and comfortable, and much loved by it's owners who have worked tirelessly to upgrade the house and gardens, and the decor is a fabulous reflection of their personalities, which we loved! The only downside on this particular occasion was the weather - a truly wet Welsh experience - for which we cannot blame Adrian and Jeff one jot! We would love to return Sue & Geoff

The B&B is very isolated but so quiet and relaxing. Excellent food - Jeff, the cook, comes over to discuss your choices. They use lots of local produce, especially their own eggs - hens and guinea fowl let loose during breakfast.
