This is the perfect venue for a hen party etc . Everyone in our group had a ball . Fabulous bedrooms and perfect entertaining space , kitchen well equipped everything was very clean and Nicky was quick to respond to any messages . We organised our own entertainment which went down a storm . There is lovely outside space even though we were there at the beginning of January we had some sunshine and sat outside I would imagine in the summer it would be good fun . You have the place completely to yourselves and everyone loved the bar . All in all a perfect party place for a big group . Can’t wait to go again . Thanks to Nicky and team Cathryn lewis

Flying Through The Valley of Wales

Stag weekend from London - had a great adventure weekend was awsome. Pulling your own pint was a great idea the boys really liked. We had a BBQ, live muisc and spent the last day at Zip World flying through the valley.

PS: Nicky was really helpful knowing the area and connecting us with people to create the the perfect stag weekend.

Memories that will last forever!

We used the venue for a hen weekend, it was fabulous! We hired a chef, wine tasting evening and DJ. Booked an extra night so family and friends could join us for a BBQ.

Weekend I will forever remember!
