An open arms welcome
By Stuart & Rhiannon, on 27 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Dec 2017
What can we say about Caer LLan and more importantly Jake & Vicky (the owners)?
We held our wedding at a Caer LLan during a cold, beautiful sunny day in December 2017, and to say it couldn’t have gone better would be an understatement....
From the moment we met Jake & Vicky to view the venue, we instantly made our decision to have our wedding here - a beautiful country house, surrounded by stunning scenery and an open arms welcome.
We booked the venue from the Friday through to the Sunday.
The attention to detail from the moment we booked, right through to day we left was superb and nothing was too much to make sure our wedding weekend was perfect.
The food all weekend was superb, elegantly presented and our guests commented on how lovely it was.
We must give Dave the barman a mention he was super friendly, easy going and even helped the bride arrange her dress before walking down the aisle.
If your want an intimate, classy, and private wedding, we can’t recommend Caer LLan enough. There are no negatives to this venue.
We had the perfect wedding weekend anyone could ever ask for. We have even said we will be back to Caer LLan with friends and family for birthdays, anniversaries and general celebrations.
Thank you so much Jake and Vicky for our wonderful wedding day. It was perfect xxx
This is a special place to get married
By Christine & Neil, on 08 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Jul 2017
This is the most beautiful spot to get married and we will have the most amazing memories to cherish. Vicky and Jake are an extraordinary couple who make sure your wedding is all you want it to be and more. The house is an amazing place to stay, waking up there on the morning of the wedding stepping out on to the balcony was a special way to start the day and it just got better and better from there. The army of staff take care of anything and I never worried about a thing as Vicky and Jake take care of everything. The food was fabulous from the canapés through to the evening hog roast. Everyone loved it not just neil and I. This is a special place to get married.
Professional, courteous and genuine
By Clare & Geraint, on 31 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 20 Jul 2017
We recently had our wedding at this venue, where to start.... for a more personal touch and less of a corporate feel Caer Llan is the perfect choice.
The owners Vicky & Jake are so welcoming and will do their best to cater for your every need. The pictures speak for themselves it is a beautiful place along with well cared for grounds including a swimming pool overlooking the valley.
Service is second to none and all of the staff are excellent, especially Dave the bar manager who was at our side whenever we needed him for any job no matter how small. Everyone was professional and courteous with a genuine smile.
We had such a stress free lovely day thanks to Vicky & Jake and we thank them for letting us share their beautiful home for our special day. It was definitely a home from home experience, faultless!!
The venue was breathtaking
By Morwenna & Alex, on 08 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 15 Jul 2017
We had our wedding at Caer Llan and we wouldn't have changed a thing! The venue was breathtaking and Vicky, Jake and the team are the perfect hosts. From when we first viewed the venue we were in love with the amazing views and the beautiful building. Vicky, Jake and the team go over and above to make sure that every single detail is perfect. We arrived Friday afternoon and had a meeting with Vicky and Jake to make sure everything was organised. From that point on we didn't need to worry about a thing. We had lasagne on the Friday night which was delicious and there was even plenty for seconds (and thirds!). The guests all loved their rooms as well. The setting allows people to mingle on Saturday morning before the wedding and enjoy the views. Vicky and Jake made sure they knew when suppliers were arriving and where they should go. Vicky also made sure we were both happy and tried to stop us being too nervous! The room was decorated beautifully even with our rather vague descriptions! It's the perfect venue for drinks outside after the ceremony and there were so many great spots for photos that we were spoilt for choice. The wedding breakfast was delicious, we chose the fine dining menu. And Dave made sure that everyone's drinks were kept topped up and everyone was happy. The venue was also great for the reception with plenty of room for dancing but also break out spaces for people to sit and chat. The bar had great prices and the staff were so friendly and quick to serve. We were so sad to leave Caer Llan on the Sunday morning and all of our guests commented on what a brilliant venue it was.
An intimate & relaxed time with friends
By Lalle & Vince, on 27 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 17 Jun 2017
When looking for our wedding venue, we wanted somewhere unique and non-corporate; with bedrooms for guests but not a hotel where you're 'one in, one out'; somewhere we could have an intimate and relaxed time with around 80 friends and family without the space feeling too big; somewhere in beautiful Wales but still easily accessible for guests from England as well as abroad.
When we found Caer Llan online, we knew it was exactly what we had been looking for. We visited and were blown away - if you think the photos on the website are good, visit and you will see they only scratch the surface of the wonderful location.
Throughout the planning stages, Vicky, Jake and Kathryn were enormously helpful and always friendly and welcoming. On the weekend itself, their professionalism and and experience meant the day went incredibly smoothly. We knew they were on hand whenever we needed them but not once did we feel they intruded on our day.
We got married on Saturday 17th June and we will be forever grateful to Vicky & Jake and their team. Simply the best weekend ever.
Love from Lalle & Vince
Everything far exceeded any of our expectations
By Naomi & David, on 30 May 2017Date of Wedding - 27 May 2017
Myself and Dave celebrated our wedding this weekend surrounded by all our family and friends at Caer Llan. With the breath taking views, fantastic staff and most incredible owners Vicky and Jake, all our dreams were made a reality on Saturday. Our whole weekend was amazing from the moment we arrived. Set in such a tranquil location we felt instantly at ease and this feeling continued until the very end. Every guest commented on the spectacular views, the quality of the food and how accommodating the staff at Caer Llan were. Our day ran like clockwork and the eye to detail when dressing the tables and surrounding areas was phenomenal. Everything far exceeded any of our expectations which we never thought possible. The whole experience was so amazing and we cannot thank you enough for everything you did for us, our families and our friends.
Thank you again for helping us make ever lasting memories,
With so much love & gratitude we thank you!
By Beth Haskew, on 16 May 2017Date of Wedding - 13 May 2017
We have just celebrated our wedding weekend at Caer Llan and couldn't have asked for a single thing more from Vicky, Jake and the rest of the team.
Our whole weekend was incredible from start to finish, with every single one of our guests commenting on the high quality of food, the staff, the view, the rooms, the bar prices and so many other countless aspects to Caer Llan.
We will be recommending this venue to everyone we know and hope that this review helps influence the decision of a couple trying to plan one of the most wonderful weekend of their lives, I want to assure them it will not be a decision they would ever regret.
With so much love and gratitude we thank you.
Beth & Phil xx
Unforgettable wedding experience
By Phil, on 15 May 2017Date of Wedding - 13 May 2017
Well what can I say.. from start to finish Vicky and Jake made our wedding experience unforgettable. They and their team really were the most excellent hosts we could have ever wished to ask for.
If you want your guests leaving feeling they have just attended the best wedding they have or are ever likely to attend in the future then believe me when I say that they will once they leave Caer Llan.
Beth and I visited 6 venues around the area to host our wedding and I can honestly say Vicky and Jake were the only ones to actually make us feel if the wedding was all about us and our special day.
Vicky and Jake - if you read this.. thank you from the bottom of both Beth and my hearts! I seriously don't think we realised what perfect meant until now!
This was the perfect venue for us
By Tricia Piper, on 10 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 08 Apr 2017
My husband and I met with Vicky and Jake last year when choosing a venue. We work in Tanzania 11 months of the year and so most of our planning was done from afar. Vicky, Jake and Kathryn were extremely accommodating, answers all of my silly questions and assisting us with a payment schedule. Vicky took extra time with us during our meeting so that we were comfortable with what the venue would look like for our wedding weekend. We've just gotten home after our wedding and are on an absolute high. It was the perfect venue for our two families and sets of friends to meet and get to know each other. Vicky and Jake were fantastic hosts and let us feel like the house was our own. The meals were wholesome and delicious - huge portions. The staff were very attentive and were great with the little ones as well. This was the perfect venue for us, and their support during our preparations was exceptional. Thank you so much for helping us create such wonderful memories during our wedding weekend!
The most wonderful weekend of our lives

My wife and I chose Caer Llan as the venue for our wedding for the unbelievable, beautiful location, a stunning building with fantastic views, lovely, supportive staff and the chance to really put your fingerprints on your wedding. Unlike many hotel venues, from Friday evening across the whole weekend it felt as if Caer Llan was ours. That's not to say we were left to our own devices - far from it! Jake and Vicky are there every step of the way and the fact our wedding day went perfectly from start to finish is down to them and their brilliant team. So many of our guests were in awe of our choice of venue - commenting on how beautiful Caer Llan is, the welcoming atmosphere and how much they enjoyed the day. The food was great, the bedrooms cosy, and the bar well stocked and priced - Caer Llan really is a gem! It's not all that far from Newport and Cardiff but for the weekend it felt like we were in our own little world. We cannot recommend Caer Llan enough. The perfect venue for our perfect day.
