Celebrations at Caer Llan

Whether you're coming here to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, reunion or other special occasion with family and friends, we really want you to relax and have a great time. There is something very special about having all of your friends and family gathered together under one roof and at Caer Llan there is no need to worry about cooking, washing up or getting home at the end of the night!

We give you exclusive access to the country house, gardens and surrounding woodland, coupled with the finest hospitality. For those looking for a weekend or overnight stay, Caer Llan's family style 15 bedrooms all have new en-suite facilities and can sleep up to 50 guests.

We can cater for up to 88 people for a sit-down meal and 120 guests for a reception. Each celebration is tailored to suit your requirements, whether it's a summer barbeque, evening drinks on the terrace, a grand banquet or a cosy weekend getaway.

Our in-house hospitality team sources the best quality local ingredients and we pride ourselves on offering delicious home-cooked food.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is simple - to make every guest feel relaxed and at home during their time at Caer Llan. We take great care to give a professional yet friendly service and we do as much as we can to make your celebration special.

Our team has a wealth of experience in all types of celebrations, but that doesn't mean we stick to the same formula every time. Each occasion is unique and we'll work with you to find the perfect match for your personality and requirements. It's the personal touches that set your event apart.

We also believe strongly in fair, honest pricing: all our prices are transparent and carefully considered.

Exclusive Use of Caer Llan

Caer Llan is a totally private venue and we deliberately only cater for one event at a time - regardless of size - giving guests exclusive access to our facilities. The house, gardens and 25-acres of secluded woodland are here for you and your guests to explore and enjoy. There are also plenty of local activities and attractions in the area if you fancy venturing out. See our Friends of Caer Llan page.

A weekend with friends

"Fantastic chilled weekend with 40 plus friends. Jake and Vicky are very attentive hosts. This was our 12th year of staying at Caer Llan and each time we have visited there are noticeable improvements making our stay very comfortable. The views remain incredible and constantly change with the weather. Many varieties of walks to enjoy too. Can't wait to return next year.
