We've just spent a wonderful ten days over Christmas and have absolutely loved both the location and accommodation. There are so many little touches that make the barn a very special and spacious place to stay. The Christmas decorations were really creative and tasteful and helped make this our best Christmas yet. We would love to come back and try a summer break here in the future and can't speak highly enough of Cefn Mawr!Ms Humphrey - 28th December 2016
A truly splendid location and superb accommodation! The barn conversion is excellent and more than enough for our needs. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the attention of Delilah!!
