“Excellent in every way”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We really couldn't have asked for better. The room and especially the bathroom were luxurious, view was gorgeous and our hosts couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. I will definitely be recommending to friends and will hopefully be back to stay again!

If you are looking for an escape away for a break, look no further than here. We came here for one night for our anniversary and it truly was a 5* experience. The whole place is exceptional from drive up, hospitality through to our room and breakfast the following morning. Caron and Fiona were amazing hosts who really made us feel welcome. My only worry when I first rang up to book was where could we go to eat in the evening to celebrate our anniversary. Fiona was quick to help recommending a number of different options. In the end I settled on Y Polyn ( would highly recommend as the food was excellent and very relaxing atmosphere). Y Polyn was a couple of miles away and Caron kindly offered to take us and pick us up afterwards. Something I would say is clearly going above and beyond the customers expectation, and very much appreciated. The whole experience was first class from beginning to end and truly lives up to the photos on the website.
Needless to say we will definitely be going back again.

This is a great place to stay - a large and luxurious room and bathroom, helpful and friendly hosts (yes, they will drive you to Y Polyn!), tasty breakfast and quiet location. And the music room really is something special…..

Caron and Fiona are the most wonderful hosts. Very knowledgeable and helpful. they booked us a place to eat on our first night because it was a Monday and not much was open. This saved us the worry. They were very attentive, making sure we had everything we needed. Caron loaned out maps and even offered to drive us to a local restaurant -Y Polyn definitely worth a visit if you're staying.

The rooms are amazing. Marble bathrooms with jacuzzi baths and double headed showers. The bed is so big and comfortable you never want to get up, except if you stayed in bed you'd miss the excellent breakfast - ask for some of their home prepared whiskey marmalade! The music room -where we were welcomed with tea and cakes is a clever idea and the sound quality is amazing.

All in all we had a marvellous stay and we would thoroughly recommend Llwyn Helig, it's a brilliant place to stay. We'll be back - if there are any rooms unoccupied!

Room Tip: They ate all of equal quality.

Everything about our stay at Llwyn Helyg Country House was to the highest standard. The owners gave us a warm welcome and did everything they could to make our stay with them a pleasurable experience, from booking the local restaurant for our first evening meal to recommending local attractions and helping us plan our days. The house itself is just stunning and our room was beautiful. We really couldn't have asked for more a more lovely place to spend our wedding anniversary and we would love to return one day.

This is how all B&B’s should be, LLwyn Helyg has everything I could have hoped for from a friendly welcome to top quality bedding and a proper breakfast in the morning, all in a beautiful setting. Arriving late I was asked if I had eaten and could they book a table for me at a local restaurant which at past 8 pm was a great help. When I returned Caron showed me the Listening Room and took the time to show me the top end set up, this sound system shows he and Fiona are serious audiophiles. If there was any downside to my stay this was it, it was too late to fire up the system and listen to some of the music collection which nothing less than comprehensive and mirrored much of my own collection. I will certainly return next time I’m in the area on business but will also have to visit for a weekend or longer to properly enjoy the comforts and listening experience on offer.

A stunning build with classic features and luxurious marble underfoot and cladding the bathroom.. Enjoy a jacuzzi bath, a beautiful view, or relaxing to music in the oh-so-impressive music room! With friendly hosts, a quality hearty breakfast and surrounded by so much to see and do in the surrounding area this place is a 'must' for the perfect getaway... I thoroughly recommend it :)
