What our Guests Say….

A perfect place for Yoga events – Jan 2016

The Ceridwen centre is a great place to run workshops or events of any kind. I run Yoga workshops here and it is perfect. It is furnished to a high standard, is well heated and has a cosy, warm, homely atmosphere. The food is absolutely amazing – something everyone comments on during the yoga day and Ceridwen will cater for any dietary requirement. All the staff, Simone, Roger and family are friendly, helpful and accommodating. Brillant hosts. It has everything you need to run an event, a beautiful ‘old dairy’ barn, toilets, kitchen and seating ‘lounge’ area and outside spaces with stunning views of the countryside. Couldn’t ask for more. Thank you Ceridwen.     Stayed January 2016

New Year Gathering – stayed Jan 2016

This is the second time a large group of family and friends, of all ages, have stayed in this great cottage. Even though there were 13 adults and 11 (I think) children there is enough space, that is divided up in such a way, that you don’t feel cramped or crowded. There are spaces where you can get together and spaces where you can find some peace and solitude. It works really well as a location for a get together and as a base for trips out (some of our group visited the beach as well as lots of local walking, including to the pub which is 10 minutes stroll down a hill). The kitchen is well equipped and it was easy to prepare meals to feed everyone. We had a fun party although some of the dancing was a little dubious. The owners were very helpful, easy to communicate with and provide an excellent service (even returning some misplaced keys to me rapidly and free of charge). The welcoming drinks and food was a nice touch. We have already booked to return next year.
