We loved Caer Llan

I'm not sure where to even start but we loved having our wedding at Caer Llan. Jake and Vicky were so lovely and helpful throughout the planning of the wedding and the day itself and provided the perfect day, nothing was too much of an ask.

You will blown away by the stunning view! The food is excellent and there were lovely rooms available on site for our wedding parties and families.
This was the perfect venue for us, it felt intimate and totally personal. We could not recommend this place enough!

A perfect summer wedding

Caer Llan was the first, and only venue we looked at for our wedding. Having the option to get married outside, with the stunning Usk Valley as our backdrop, was all the enticement we needed. Vicky and Jake were the most brilliant hosts. Their availability to offer advice and answer our questions enabled the lead up to our wedding to be stress free and helped increase our excitement. Choosing a Twilight wedding was absolutely the best decision, allowing us to minimise the formality and maximise on fun!! The food was delicious and plentiful, the accommodation is stylish, comfortable and the best value I’ve ever known, with most rooms able to sleep between 2-4 people. An additional bonus for us was the fact that as Caer Llan is also Vicky & Jake’s family home, it has all the comfort and homely touches to make the venue warm and welcoming and we didn’t feel the need to add any additional decoration. We cannot recommend Caer Llan and Vicky and Jake highly enough. It is the most perfectly intimate Monmouthshire wedding venue.

Beautiful welsh venue

We had an amazing wedding reception at Caer Llan. Following our Church Service, we loved taking our guests here. The views made the perfect backdrop to our wedding photos. The food was lovely and it was so nice to eat outside on a sunny day in May. The venue is so versatile, with guests able to be in the ballroom, bar, piano area, terrace and even pool area. The bedrooms were beautiful and comfy too. By the morning our guests were discussing how they could come here again! You won’t regret having your wedding here.

Caer Llan is absolutely unforgettable!

We simply had the best day of our lives at Caer Llan, with the most attentive and generous hosts we could have asked for. It's so much more than a venue, it's an experience, all the additions of the day could not have been so super without it.

Months on, our friends still say the wedding was the best they had been to because of the atmosphere and the stunning views. They said it felt like a summer party abroad! The venue just made everyone relax and have fun.

Vicky & Jake are phenomenal at what they do and making everyone there feel like a friend. They are always close on hand and communication was spot on the whole way from booking Caer Llan to the morning after the wedding. They covered all bases and we really felt like we were in safe hands and could enjoy the day.

Having the wedding breakfast outside was so beautiful it was surreal, and walking around the grounds with our photographer was another highlight as it's so lovely and well kept. The food was so tasty and everyone's needs were met, even the evening food was so good one of my friends asked me if we could go back for a party someday just for the BBQ!

Caer Llan is so reasonably priced and all costs are transparent from the outset. It knocks the spots off some other venue prices in South Wales that we looked at, without compromising quality or experience.

When you're at Caer Llan for your wedding, you feel that exclusivity and that you are somewhere really special, away in nature with your nearest and dearest, well fed and comfortable - what more could you want from a wedding!

Perfect wedding venue, don’t hesitate to book!!

On 3rd October 2023 we had our perfect wedding at the most perfect venue.
We looked at a few places however as soon as we turned into the driveway and saw the property and spectacular views we knew that Caer Llan was special.
Vicky and Jake are both lovely and so friendly and instantly made me feel at ease about the planning of the wedding which was in a relatively short space of time.
Vicky’s communication was excellent throughout and any queries I had she answered promptly.
I’m not exaggerating when I say our wedding day was perfect 🥰 and a big factor in this was that Vicky and Jake are clearly very experienced and run a tight ship . They made sure all the timings were spot on for the day/evening to run smoothly.
The food was delicious and drink’s reasonably priced.
All of our guests haven’t stopped talking about how beautiful Caer Llan is.
Thank you for making our day so special 😊

Lovely Wedding

We enjoyed our wonderful wedding at Caer Llan in September.
Vicky and Jake were brilliant hosts and everything ran smoothly.
The food was divine and everyone had an amazing time.
Even though the weather wasn't on our side, it didn't ruin the day and Vicky and Jake were able to easily adapt.
Communication during the run up to the wedding was great and I felt that queries were dealt with quickly. The FAQ section of the website was really useful too!
Thank you to all of the team for making our day so special

Fantastic Wedding Venue

We got married at Caer Llan in July and would highly recommend it to any prospective couples! The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous, with stunning views of the Welsh valleys. Despite planning our wedding from the US, Jake and Vicky made our wedding planning stress free! They went above and beyond on every detail of our wedding and left us feeling incredibly confident and comfortable to just enjoy our day while they worked in the background. The staff worked with a seamless efficiency that made every single attendee give us glowing enthusiasm towards the food, the accommodations, and the entire event! Overall an incredible few days with friends and family that we will never forget!

A Magical Day!

Hi Jake and Vicky!



I know it’s taken us far too long to write to you following our magical day, but we have only just come down from cloud nine! We just wanted to say a huge and heartfelt thank you, thank you, thank you.



We knew Caer Llan was the perfect venue for our wedding the moment we first arrived. The views are just spectacular, the house and grounds create the perfect blend of friendliness, relaxation, formality and elegance. However, what really made the difference was you guys, and your amazing team. You are both the personification of calmness and service with an enormous smile, that made us feel our special day was the ONLY wedding that mattered. The organisation on the day seemed effortless, although I am sure it wasn’t; so an enormous kudos to you and the team!



Our wedding day was perfect, in every sense of the word – just magical. We have had repeated comments from our friends and family about how amazing the weekend was. All of them loved Caer Llan the venue, and the team you have there; and Jake’s piano playing at the end of the evening put a huge cherry on top of the day!



We know you are proud of your house and business, and so you should be. We cannot thank and praise you enough.



Nick and Amelia

The perfect venue for us

My husband and I got married in Caer Llan in February 2023, and honestly we couldn't have chosen a better venue for the amazing over all experience we received. Right from visiting for the first time, Jake and Vicky were so attentive, always on hand to answer questions and provide support, and really made us feel at ease if we had any worries. Vicky even sat us down the night before the wedding to do a proper run through of the day, which helped us so much. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful and you can't beat the views of the Monmouthshire hills that you get from the balcony. The food was incredible and very reasonably priced, the bar staff were lovely, the accommodation was brilliant and all of our guests loved being able to stay over the night before the wedding as well as the night of. Caer Llan was our first and only choice - we didn't want to visit anywhere else after seeing Caer Llan because to us it was just perfect.

Perfect wedding venue, stunning setting, amazing t

‘As soon as we arrived to view Caer Llan we knew it was the perfect wedding venue for us. The views are absolutely stunning and the owners Vicky & Jake were so open and welcoming. We loved it so much we booked it there and then without any hesitation!
From the day we booked the organisation was seamless, their online wedding planner system was brilliant and made organising all of the details (overnight guests, food allergies, seating plans etc) so simple and completely stress free.
For us the accommodation options suited us perfectly, there are 7 ground floor rooms (plus more), perfect for our older less mobile guests.
The food from start to finish was superb, from the buffet Friday evening, to the fab breakfasts and the fantastic wedding breakfast. All of the guests made a point of telling us how much they loved it.
Options for outdoor aswell as indoor ceremony were available to us but the inclement morning weather made the decision. As the old saying goes the sun shines on the righteous so our photos in the wonderful patio area and grounds were stunning.
All of the team were brilliant and made us feel as though nothing was too much trouble. We must mention the chef who cooked an extra last minute hot meal for our toddler page boy (as if they didn't have enough to do!) and Dave who, well what can we say, was a star!
We cannot rate this venue highly enough, we're already thinking of an excuse to host an event there again in the future!
If you're looking for the most perfect venue for your wedding then Caer Llan is the place for you! Book it now, you will not be disappointed!!

Fantastic Wedding Day at Caer Llan

After looking around several venues, myself and my partner fell in love with Caer Llan.

The views are amazing and the building itself is stunning. We met Vicky & Jake and discussed options etc. By the time we had got home our mind was made up! Everything on offer surpassed any other venue and it was so personal.
From day 1 Vicky & Jake helped us and discussed all options. Constantly keeping us updated on new menus or changes etc.

Then finally yesterday our amazing day came. The venue was spotless and all the staff were great, there was nothing that was too much. Even with helping my disabled grandmother and some other tough characters. The food was out of this world and the Chef Richard has an amazing calibre. From the buffet on Friday, to the Wedding Breakfast was amazing and all guests commented on how great the food was.

Dave the bar man/handy man was great. Was a friendly smile and helped us throughout our stay. Dave helped make the day, ensuring all our guests were happy at all times.

Vicky & Jake were always on hand and helped throughout the weekend. They have been great from day one and Caer Llan is an amazing venue due to the high standards they have set and keep setting. Each guest commented on how great the location and venue was and how helpful and attentive all the staff were.

Thank you for an amazing weekend and allowing us to marry in such a beautiful place.

A truly 5 star experience

Caer Llan was the most magical setting for our Daughter Libby's wedding.
Physically the venue could not really be surpassed, with the wonderful views over the Brecon Beacons, and the various terraces and vantage points.
However the whole experience was made even more amazing by the efficiency of the organisation, the helpfulness and experience of Jake and Vicky, and the professionalism and friendliness of the staff at all times.
We had nearly 90 guests and without exception they were bowled over by the experience.
The food was excellent and plentiful, on all occasions, and the service of it immaculate.
The rooms were clean, comfortable, well equipped, and some had magnificent views.
This was a truly 5 star experience and we would like to thank everyone at Caer Llan

Everything you want in a wedding AND MORE!

Caer Llan is the perfect package when it comes to wedding venues. Not only is it in a beautiful position with the most spectacular far reaching views but the venue itself is simply fantastic. However the real cherry on the cake is the staff and the owners Vicky and Jake who even from the first viewing at Caer Llan gave us the warm fuzzy feeling that we were looking for; knowing that everything would come out exactly how we wanted. We felt like ours was the first and only wedding that was going to happen there and we were lucky enough to have the first wedding outside. This is a real bonus so if you have chance to do your wedding outside then definitely make that choice! Vicky will talk you through every logistical aspect of the day which just puts you completely at ease that they have your day covered, but also they add those special moments like Jake playing the piano at the very end of the day so we could all have a sing a long. All the staff especially Dave the barman also helped to keep our guests happy and smiling. All the typical worries you may have at a wedding such as quality of food, price of drinks and poor service just don't exist at this place as the food is top notch and portions are just the perfect size.

Definitely book this place for your wedding as it is simply stunning and Vicky and Jake should be so proud of what they have here.

Thanks for everything.
Matt and Emma Skelton! May 2019

The most magical, welcoming, well run place

My daughter had her Civil Partnership at Caer Llan on April 13th 2019. From the very first visit 9 months ago to the moment we had to leave, the experience has been extraordinary! Jake and Vicky now feel part of our family, absolutely nothing was too much trouble for them. Their staff were obviously really happy in their work there. Dave the bar man (he is so much more than that but that is his title!) was very kind, worked amazingly hard and again he provided everything we asked for and helped us in a second if ever we were not sure what to do. The food was outstanding and such big portions too. The Chef was there from the first sign of a cooked breakfast to the last nibble of food in the evening.
The rooms are exceptionally clean and all ensuite. The lounge rooms and bar downstairs are very tastefully furnished.
Everything ran like clockwork and Jake and Vicky put any worries or concerns to rest. Every single one of the guests commented on the beauty of the building and the excellent atmosphere throughout the whole event and weekend. Even the registrar was impressed and commented it was unlike any other ceremony she had officiated at and that was all to do with our hosts.
Hopefully you can see by my review that this venue and the staff are totally exceptional in everything!
If you are uncertain whether you should book it for a special event, don't be , JUST BOOK and leave the rest to Vicky and Jake!
Thank you’
