Cefn Ceiriog is home to us, our children, our grandchildren and quite a few animals.
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.

We fell in love with the beautiful Ceiriog Valley over twenty years ago and made Cefn Ceiriog our family home.
Our conversion of the barn and the stables has allowed us to share our hillside home with guests from all around the world. We also share it with a dog, a cluck of chickens, a couple of adorable Shetland ponies and a few goats, as well as the most glorious dawn chorus you are ever likely to hear.
Back in 1923 the Ceiriog Valley was due to be flooded as a reservoir and was only saved by the intercession of the prime minister, Lloyd George. He described the valley as "a little piece of heaven on earth." We agree and we feel sure you will too.
"Richard and Mai were both very kind and friendly. The cottage was very clean and in a great location. We really had an amazing time!"

"I just returned from a fantastic week at Cefn Bach cottage in Glyn Ceirionc. Richard and Mai were dream hosts, making sure I had what was needed and more. The place itself is a great base for a few days of walking which was my aim. The walking right from the doorstep is varied and superb, classic northern Wales. I didn’t have a car so was slightly limited but there was still plenty for six days. Thanks so much for the great hospitality!"

"Very spacious, spotless accommodation in a beautiful, quiet location. Richard and Mai were very obliging both before and during our stay. They could not have done more to make us feel welcome."
