Amazing Venue!!
Venue Service

By Claire Garland, on 19 Feb 2019Date of Wedding - 26 Jan 2019

We got married here on 26/01/19 and had a day that surpassed all expectations. We wanted a relaxed enjoyable day for us and our guests but with all the magic a wedding day should bring....the venue was perfect, peaceful, picturesque and tranquil and the team couldn’t do enough to make our day go smoothly and took all the pressure off us...we had nothing to do but enjoy our day....which we did...and our guests all commented on what a wonderful day it was. Cannot recommend Gellifawr and the team highly enough. Thank you for making our day so special Gellifawr!!!

Beautiful Winter Wedding January 2019

We had the most perfect wedding day we could have ever imagined at Gellifawr Woodland Retreat in January 2019. This is such a beautiful location for a wedding, nicely hidden away in the beautiful Pembrokeshire countryside and perfect for outdoor photographs in the landscaped grounds! The gorgeous little cottages in the courtyard were perfect for all of our guests to stay. We've had so many friends ask how on earth we found it, and also wonderful comments that if they could do 'their day' again, they'd have much preferred this location. Our wedding coordinator Nia did such an amazing job. She really can't do enough to help you and our day was so perfect, and everything ran to plan, The whole team were incredibly friendly, helpful, efficient and inconspicuous, but did a wonderful job. Great team work! Our day was so relaxed and had the most amazing chilled atmosphere, of which we really wanted our guests to feel, and a few have even commented that it was the nicest wedding they've ever been to, down to the location, atmosphere and food, wow! The food was absolutely stunning, We had canapes, a 3 course wedding breakfast and a hog-roast in the evening, and it was all totally delicious with beautiful presentation. Having the taster evening a few months before was a brilliant idea and we said that if the food on the day was half as good, we'd be chuffed. Turns out it was the same or even better! The breakfast in the morning was so delicious. We cannot praise this location enough, it is absolutely stunning, and the accommodation, quality and service are all top notch. If you choose to have your wedding here and you have a day like ours, you certainly won't be disappointed.

A wonderful place
Venue Service

Location is absolutely stunning. Lots of woodland and great views. Some minor issues during the planning of the wedding mainly due to their wedding coordinator leaving and having a new one take over. The actual wedding day went very well and everyone thoroughly enjoyed. The venue which was decorated by staff looked amazing, unfortunately we were not told we were supposed to take down and pack up the following day which was very surprising considering how much you pay to have a wedding here. You would expect that to be their job. We also had to deal with a very rude receptionist who had no interest in helping or answering our questions. Accommodation was great. Cottages could do with a bit or updating though. Food during the wedding and at breakfast the following day was delicious. I think the venue need to show more interest in the weddings they have booked and possibly not have two on a weekend. I was constantly having to chase them up to answer my emails. Also they never checked in after the wedding to see if we were happy with everything. Although there were issues we would not change our venue as it is such a beautiful place and we had a great time with our friends and family.
