“Perfect Wedding Weekend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

We had an amazing wedding at Caer Llan in May with exclusive use of the venue for the weekend with all our family & friends! The owners Vicky & Jake were so helpful from the very start & always promptly responded to all my queries I emailed them! We were happy to be able to accommodate the majority of our wedding guests for the whole weekend & the rooms are all lovely with some spectacular views! All bathrooms have been recently refurbished, as have all the Berm House bedrooms. I loved the roll-top bath in the Bridal Suite!

Our wedding day itself ran so smoothly thanks to the Caer Llan team - we didn't have to worry about anything so could relax & enjoy our day! We chose from the fine dining menu for our wedding breakfast & then had a hog roast for our evening reception. All the food was delicious! The bar was also very reasonably priced.

Would definitely recommend Caer Llan to anyone looking for a relaxed, intimate, beautiful country wedding venue who wants a bit more than just a wedding 'day'. We want an excuse to go back!!

Spent a week here on a univeristy trip lookkng at bird behaviour, fresh wster invertebrates, plant communities and terrestrial woodland invertebrates. The house is in such a beautiful area. The views are dreamlike. The owners are so nice. Will go out of their way to help you. We were alsp treated to a night of james on the piank and a good sing along. I can see why its the perfect place to get married. The rooms are beautiful. And the wildlife just adds to it all. Would deffinately recommend to anyone!!!

We were lucky enough to get married at Caer Llan a few weeks ago and we had the most perfect weekend.
From the very start of the planning process Vicky and Jake were on hand to answer any questions and were extremely friendly and helpful with their advice. We were planning our wedding from Australia but the fact we had to do everything via email was never a problem.
We could hire the entire venue exclusively for the weekend which was perfect for us and meant most of our wedding guests could stay with us for the whole weekend.
The entire stay was absolutely fantastic,the wedding day ran so smoothly again thanks to Vicky and Jake for their organisation. All the staff were very efficient and professional, the food was excellent and plentiful for the entire time and everyones needs were catered for brilliantly. We really can not thank all the Caer Llan team enough for everything and would urge anyone looking for a wedding venue in the area to pay them a visit,you will not be disappointed.

I have just returned from a weekend at Caer Llan where we had the most amazing time at a wedding.
Vicky and Jake are perfect hosts and their staff are super professional, helpful and friendly. The setting is beautiful and the building grand which makes for great photo opportunities.
The rooms are finished to a high standard with comfortable beds, lovely bathrooms and great attention to detail in anticipation of guests' needs. I was impressed to notice plug sockets under the mirror - makes life a lot easier when you are trying to get ready for a wedding!
The food was amazing - both breakfast each morning and the wonderful afternoon tea for the wedding. Above all it was so reasonably priced, the rooms and the drinks at the bar. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone; a truly wonderful experience.

We have just spent the most amazing weekend at Caer Llan getting married. Vicky and Jake are fantastic hosts and made the whole weekend seem effortless, relaxed and a whole lot of fun! Everyone felt at home and it was like having it in our own house without the stress! It was great to be there for the whole weekend.

The food was amazing, venue stunning, all the staff so friendly and helpful we couldn't fault it! Jakes amazing piano playing in the bar gave a brilliant day an amazing ending. We had vintage afternoon tea for the wedding breakfast which went down really well - perfect scotch eggs and lemon drizzle cake to die for.

We wouldn't change a thing and wish we could go back every weekend. Highly recommend it!

We celebrated our wedding reception at Caer Llan this month and it was truly fantastic. We only visited one wedding venue as we knew straight away this was perfect for us. At our initial visit we were informed by Jake that they didn't have weddings every weekend (due to hosting different events) which made it more special when they did. I think it was this which really sparked our interest as it felt our wedding wouldn't be treated like a "sausage factory!" And this was certainly the case. Jake and Vicky (owners) were so helpful throughout and did their upmost to ensure it ran smoothly, also accomodating for extra requests making our day even more special. I would recommend having the venue for the 2 nights. The Groom and his family stayed the Friday which allowed relaxation and family time. Everyone commented on our much they loved the venue and of course the views. The rooms are lovely and the Berm House unique (new furniture is gorgeous). Caer Llam felt intimate and exclusive. We opted for fine dining and the hog roast, so many guests commented on the food saying it was the best they had had at a wedding (Beef Wellington definite recommendation, cooked to perfection). Many beautiful photo locations also a bonus! There are so many good points about Caer Llan as a wedding venue and for us it was perfect.
