OUR STORY

Chicken

Cefn Ceiriog is home to us, our children, our first grandchild 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.

A Welsh Hill Farm

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 and two 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.

 

"Exceptionally good accommodation in a beautiful peaceful setting. High quality eco friendly barn conversion. Spacious, well equipped and lots of thoughtful touches. Very friendly and welcoming hosts. Enjoyed wandering around the farm and games of table tennis. Ideal location for exploring Llangollen and the surrounding area. Thank you for a great stay."

"Fabulous cottage in a fabulous location. Cosy and clean, bed was really comfortable and the view was amazing. There is so much to do and see on your doorstep or just a short drive away which make this place one of the best places we have stayed. The hosts were great and super friendly. Look no further for your next holiday!"

"Richard and Mai were very welcoming hosts and were always ready to provide us with any help or advice when needed. The barn has been beautifully converted and is a peaceful and relaxing place to stay. It was spotlessly clean and we really appreciated all the additional measures taken to ensure the property was Covid secure. We had a wonderful week using Cefn Mawr as a base to explore North Wales and hope to return for another visit!"
