Guest Book

"We booked the Cambrian Retreat for our 50th birthday celebrations. We brought 50 friends and stayed for 4 days over a bank holiday. The property was absolutely sensational – everyone loved it. We had live music one night, a silent disco the next night, a barbeque etc. The whole thing was memorable.

We cannot recommend Gareth’s property enough. If you are thinking of having a big celebration – just book it !"

"Everyone was blown away with how much space was available to relax and the rooms were spotless and comfortable. Gareth went above and beyond to make sure our weekend went well and the booking was stress-free and easy. Would recommend to any large group wanting to get together and have a nice time. Thanks again to Gareth for all his help."

Thanks very much for a great week staying in the farmhouse. The house was fabulous, the location perfect, Gareth and Sian were most welcoming and even the weather was obliging!

Incredible place! Newly refurbished and it looks incredible. We had the middle house, it was huge but still had the homely feeling. The hot tub was more like a swimming pool. We had terrible weather but we still used it for over 3 hours in the sidewards rain haha. Gareth is very welcoming, Happy to help with anything. Room was super comfy. Very happy they are dog friendly, our spaniel loved the grounds. Would be great for large parties as well as couples. We will be back, and can't wait.

Beautiful house, we had everything that we needed. Gareth was very welcoming and contactable during our stay. Perfect location for our reunion weekend, surrounded by beautiful scenery. Hot tub was huge and the rota worked well so that we could have sole use during an allocated time.

Gareth's retreat was fantastic and very suitable for a group of friends to get out and enjoy the Welsh scenery. Gareth was very helpful when we arrived and the house itself is comfortable, spacious and has great surroundings. I would highly recommend!

Stunning facility! Loved every minute and a great base for our biking tour. Think we have found the design for our dream home!

Karen & Andy. June 2017

We had a lovely few days here at Tynrhyd with our two girls. The house is amazing and we made full use of the hot tub and games room. We will definitely seek to return and are grateful to Gareth and the cleaners for all of their help and friendly assistance during our stay.

Zarah’s hideaway +2. The pictures online totally belie the beauty and comfort of this wonderful house. High quality accommodation and hospitality. Gareth, Sian & children made sure our every request was satisfied. We will endeavour to return here for another “hideaway”. Thank you Gareth for your magnificent efforts to make my stay as comfortable as possible for me.

Wonderful venue for a surprise 40th birthday party! We all had AMAZING fun and loved all the space outside in the sun to play loads of games including volleyball, quoits, ultimate frisbee, smite, giant jenga to name but a few. Really great to share such a massive hot tub with lots of others including the red kites flying overhead.  Thanks for a great stay!

17 Adults & 6 children & 4 doggies! Family weekend to celebrate Forrest’s 60th birthday. A warm and comfortable stay. Many thanks!

We have had a fantastic time at Tynrhyd Retreat, celebrating 10 years of friendship after meeting at University. The location is beautiful and we enjoyed a walk to Devil’s Bridge. The rooms are very spacious and the lounge/kitchen area is great for a big party. The hosts are so friendly and accommodating we can’t wait to book again!
