“My Daughters Wedding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2013

Stayed there for 2 nights from 5th April for my daughters wedding. Incredible place in a beautiful setting, could not have been better. The sun shone on the day (see Sunnynats review). Jake and Vicky ensured everything went to plan. Rooms are great, food was excellent, and they could not do enough for us. I would recommend this venue to anyone planning a wedding.

We stayed here recently for a wedding. We got lucky with the weather as it was the first day of warm sunshine we've had in ages. The views are gorgeous. We had an amazingly comfortable nights sleep in our room. We weren't in the main house, but it's only a few steps away from the front door. The way the wedding reception ran was really smooth and the food was great. The staff were lovely and we were really well looked after. Only minor complaint I could have was no wifi in the rooms away from the main house (very little phone reception so wifi was helpful - it was free to use in the main house though!) and breakfast was quite early. You do need a car though, its not easily accessible using public transport. But all in all I would recommend it and would stay there again.

Don't hesitate to book your wedding at Caer Llan! Thank you so much to Jake and Vicky for an incredible day. Outstanding location, fantastic food, exceptional attention to detail, great rooms, slick transitions from ceremony to meal to entertainment. Reliable recommendations for other services for guests: taxi, florist, DJ, local pub and accomodation. Hiring the house for the whole weekend gave us the intimate family feel that we were looking for and all of our guests commented on how wonderful the weekend at Caer Llan was for so many reasons.

We were married at Caer Llan on 25 January (St Dwynwen's Day) 2013. We wanted an informal intimate wedding with canapes and bubbly served after the ceremony followed by a party for 100 guests with a hog roast buffet. Vicky & Jake did everything possible to make sure we had the perfect day and night. The weather (snow) was beautiful but challenging - Jake spent hours clearing the drive and car park of snow so our guests could get there and park safely. Nothing was too much trouble on the day or beforehand at the planning stage. All the staff were brilliant and the venue is stunning - I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it. We received lots of positive feedback from guests who couldn't believe how beautiful Caer Llan is and how romantic the venue is for a wedding. Through Jake we booked The Good Times Band for the evening party and they were excellent too. Everyone was up dancing and having a brilliant time. Thanks to Vicky & Jake we had a truly memorable St Dwynwen's Day wedding!!!

We have used Caer Llan half a dozen times for a meeting followed by an overnight stay.
The welcome and service Jake and Vicky offer is the reason we return time after time.
No doubt we will be back again and I just want to say for the price, you wont get any better and will not be disappointed.
Plenty of room for meetings, bedrooms are clean and comfortable and the food is homemade and delicious topped off with 5 star service!!

Room Tip: One at the front of the house for great views over the hills

Having been brought up in the Wye Valley but moved away with work, when we got engaged I was keen to share the area with friends and family. We looked at many venues but the ability to hire the whole of a family home and not a hotel with fabulous views for a weekend was unmissable.

We got married on 20th October in beautiful weather which complemented the views at Caer Llan fabulously, our guests were gobsmacked! We cannot recommend Caer Llan enough for weddings - Jake, Vicky, the girls and all the team are wonderful and all of us had a relaxed fun day. The venue is gorgeous and the decor lends itself to such a variety of themes. In addition, the lounge and the library were lovely places for guests to get away. It felt like we have invited wedding guests into our own home. The entire weekend was a dream - if you are getting married in Monmouthshire - this is the venue to have!!

Nearly 50 of the men of St Mary's Church, Basingstoke, held our Men's Weekend at Caer Llan, for the third time. The venue suits us perfectly as it has lots of versatile space for group meetings, small discussion groups and places to be alone. We held 5 teaching and worship times from late Friday to lunchtime Sunday. The surrounding countryside gave us lots of scope for Saturday afternoon optional activities. Some of us walked out in the ample (!) rain (there are loads of lovely places to walk in the area), one led a photographic workshop, others chilled and the rest went to the pub to watch the Rugby! There are museums and also the very pretty Tintern Abbey and Tintern Station not far away. The food was excellent - just the job for hungry men - and we made full use of the bar. The rooms are really nice, with mostly four sharing. If I remember rightly, the bathrooms have been upgraded since our last visit 2 years ago - ours in Room 1 was spacious with loads of hot water!

Room Tip: We had four of us in Room 1 - a lovely big room, with ensuite bath, loo and shower. We had patio do...
