We were incredibly lucky to of found Caer Llan for our wedding weekend. This place is truly magical, from the moment you meet Vicky and Jake to the time you leave nothing is too much trouble, they put you at total ease. ( coming from a restaurant owner, high praise i think) The outside space is beautiful, having visited on clear and grey damp days the view is breath taking, the outdoor pool is bracing, if you need to clear a hangover!!! The rooms are lovely cosy and practical with massive comfy beds and those lucky enough to be at the front of the house will enjoy those views too. Inside the bar area is lovely, well stocked and priced. The main room we used for our wedding reception is perfect for small to medium sized gatherings. We loved the lounges where people could retreat to chat or in our case play games away from larger groups, Caer Llan really does cater for everyone from 5 to 85. The staff are fantastic, just friendly enough. What can I say about the food, we had a lovely informal meal on Friday, breakfast is plentiful, the wedding breakfast of vintage tea just WOW WOW WOW and to top off with every carnivores dream, Jakes hog roast, even when the wind and rain came in they just carried on and helped everyone have a great time. Thank you Vicky and Jake you really gave us a truly amazing wedding weekend. We just need an excuse to come back!!!!

One word, EPIC - the fact this is our first married day together and we just had to write this speaks volumes. We were hoping for a very relaxed, informal atmosphere and Caer Llan delivered it in spades. Everyone at Caer Llan was always ahead of schedule and over delivering from the moment we arrived. The food, oh my word, even the fussiest of guests loved it, and we are related to the most fussy, so to see them making repeat visits for the evening food was a wonderful surprise. The wedding breakfast itself was just outstanding. Between Vicky, Jake and Kathryn, the stress of planning was zero. We have never seen so much passion and focus on understanding and delivering what we were looking for. Another special thank you to Jake, the impromptu piano and song with our Best Man's daughter was fabulous. Dave the head barman is a legend, always there and always thinking of the guests, again we cannot think of anywhere else that has done more to make it exactly what you want. The staff do not crowd you but are always there which is exactly how it should be. The last hour of the evening was spent trying to engineer another occasion so we can return to Caer Llan, which is the highest praise any venue can hope for. We truly believe you cannot find this level of facility, quality, at a price that even comes close to Caer Llan's rates. Thank you to everyone at Caer Llan, it could not have been more perfect

My wife and I chose Caer Llan as the venue for our wedding for the unbelievable, beautiful location, a stunning building with fantastic views, lovely, supportive staff and the chance to really put your fingerprints on your wedding. Unlike many hotel venues, from Friday evening across the whole weekend it felt as if Caer Llan was ours. That's not to say we were left to our own devices - far from it! Jake and Vicky are there every step of the way and the fact our wedding day went perfectly from start to finish is down to them and their brilliant team. So many of our guests were in awe of our choice of venue - commenting on how beautiful Caer Llan is, the welcoming atmosphere and how much they enjoyed the day. The food was great, the bedrooms cosy, and the bar well stocked and priced - Caer Llan really is a gem! It's not all that far from Newport and Cardiff but for the weekend it felt like we were in our own little world. We cannot recommend Caer Llan enough. The perfect venue for our perfect day.

We booked Caer Llan for our wedding for the whole weekend with family and friends staying in all 15 rooms. From the very moment we arrived on the Friday to the moment we left on Sunday we were made to feel so welcome by Jake, Vicky and Dave. Everyone had an amazing weekend and everyone commented how lovely the rooms were and the surrounding views. The food we had all weekend was top notch . Vicky and Jakes staff were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. The wedding day itself was amazing and we were so glad we chose Caer Llan . You won't be disappointed if you book Caer Llan, everything was perfect. Thank you to Vicky & Jake and all your staff for giving us and our guests a weekend we'll never forget. Xx

We have just celebrated our wedding weekend at Caer Llan and couldn't have asked for a single thing more from Vicky, Jake and the rest of the team.
Our whole weekend was incredible from start to finish, with every single one of our guests commenting on the high quality of food, the staff, the view, the rooms, the bar prices and so many other countless aspects to Caer Llan.
We will be recommending this venue to everyone we know and hope that this review helps influence the decision of a couple trying to plan one of the most wonderful weekend of their lives, I want to assure them it will not be a decision they would ever regret.
With so much love and gratitude we thank you.

Myself and Dave celebrated our wedding this weekend surrounded by all our family and friends at Caer Llan. With the breath taking views, fantastic staff and most incredible owners Vicky and Jake, all our dreams were made a reality on Saturday. Our whole weekend was amazing from the moment we arrived. Set in such a tranquil location we felt instantly at ease and this feeling continued until the very end. Every guest commented on the spectacular views, the quality of the food and how accommodating the staff at Caer Llan were. Our day ran like clockwork and the eye to detail when dressing the tables and surrounding areas was phenomenal. Everything far exceeded any of our expectations which we never thought possible. The whole experience was so amazing and we cannot thank you enough for everything you did for us, our families and our friends.
Thank you again for helping us make ever lasting memories,

When looking for our wedding venue, we wanted somewhere unique and non-corporate; with bedrooms for guests but not a hotel where you're 'one in, one out'; somewhere we could have an intimate and relaxed time with around 80 friends and family without the space feeling too big; somewhere in beautiful Wales but still easily accessible for guests from England as well as abroad.
When we found Caer Llan online, we knew it was exactly what we had been looking for. We visited and were blown away - if you think the photos on the website are good, visit and you will see they only scratch the surface of the wonderful location.
Throughout the planning stages, Vicky, Jake and Kathryn were enormously helpful and always friendly and welcoming. On the weekend itself, their professionalism and and experience meant the day went incredibly smoothly. We knew they were on hand whenever we needed them but not once did we feel they intruded on our day.
We got married on Saturday 17th June and we will be forever grateful to Vicky & Jake and their team. Simply the best weekend ever.
Love from Lalle & Vince
