This is an uncertain and unsettling time for everyone due to the Coronavirus. 

The situation is rapidly changing day to day and we can all only respond to what we currently know and are advised to do. 

First and foremost we are following government guidelines to ensure the health and safety of guests and that of our family and community, during this outbreak.

The current government guidelines to limit spread of the infection state:

“avoid all unnecessary travel”

“do not have visitors to your home, including friends and family”

“businesses and workplaces should encourage their employees to work at home, wherever possible”

We understand that holidays are considered unnecessary travel.

The site of the holiday cottages is our home.

We do not wish to encourage any employees or service providers to have to work at the properties.

For all these reasons, unless advice changes, the properties are not available in March/April/May. To be reviewed for further months.

This pandemic is leading cities and nations to undergo extreme measures. In this crisis, our first priority is the health of our guests, our community and our family. We do not want guests making the decision to put themselves in unsafe situations and creating a public health hazard because of a commitment to their bookings. We believe this is the responsible thing to do given the guidance of governments and health experts. 

If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will get back to you as quickly as we can.

Kind regards,

Mai and Richard

We believe Cefn Ceiriog is a unique property, defined by its breathtaking location. Cefn Ceiriog is positioned in beautiful grounds and fields, which you can explore. The old stables provide a covered area that is family friendly and we have lots of games on site e.g. table tennis, table football, darts, den building, board games, jigsaws and construction toys. We have a small library for both children and adults to enjoy.

One thousand feet up, sheltered in a south facing fold of the hillside, Cefn Ceiriog commands extraordinary views down the beautiful Ceiriog Valley. This two-hundred year old Welsh former hill farm provides a warm, comfortable, family-friendly base from which to explore this historic and spectacular area.

In 1923 the then Prime Minister, David Lloyd George, saved the Ceiriog Valley from being flooded to create a reservoir. He described the valley as 'a little piece of heaven on earth'. We think you'll agree and we look forward to welcoming you for a little peace and relaxation.

Please also note that the property is on the site of an old hill farm. We do get snow in the winter and in extreme conditions this can mean leaving the car in the village and an adventurous walk up the hill (about 15 mins) to get to the cottage and the barn.

Cofion gorau/Best wishes,

Richard and Mai
