“Beautiful Converted Farmhouse”
Reviewed 9 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We loved Cilan Farmhouse. It is a beautiful house which is very tastefully furnished to a very high standard. The garden is great for kids as it is securely fenced in and access to the river is protected by a further fence (with easy gate access). Our nephew caught, skinned, cooked and ate his first fish from the banks of the river just below the house. We are expats and rented the house so as to allow friends and family to come visit us. There was plenty of space and with an ensuite bathroom in every bedroom, there was also plenty of privacy too. The only niggle was that the wi-fi strength was not up to the task of allowing live streaming and connectivity was a real pain at times.

“Perfect family and friends retreat done to a very high standard”
Reviewed 5 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

As the first people to stay in Cilan House we found everything to be brand new and absolutely spotless. It was exactly what we were looking for: a large converted farmhouse in a quiet, rural Welsh setting with plenty of room for our family and friends to come and stay with us while we visited from Australia. Everything in the house has been done to a very high standard and there are lots of quality touches to make you feel at home. Like the welcome hamper which included eggs, wine, organic milk and bread as well as the usual tea, coffee and sugar. Individual dressing gowns in each room are also a nice touch. The house is really wonderful with a comfortable lounge area opening onto the massive garden and riverside bank where the sheep graze. The kitchen is also large and well stocked for a longer stay. All the rooms have been converted to make them warm and comfortable with all the mod cons. I could go on and on as I really loved staying here and still miss the beautiful silence of the countryside and the wonderful evening light that bathes the garden in the late afternoon. Despite being close to the other cottages it is very private. And of course the hot tub is fantastic, especially for relaxing in the early evening when the kids have gone to bed! Aled the handyman on-site is also really friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to stay close to Snowdonia and wanting to have a relaxing time in Wales. The only downside is the lack of phone reception which can only be obtained from the caravan field further up the drive. But this was not the only place where we had this problem in Wales.
