Where are we?
“Our fifth visit to this property. Perfect hosts, lovely breakfast and a beautiful location in Mid Wales” – Susan – Aug’19 – via booking.com
Cerdyn Villa Guesthouse is situated on the outskirts of Llanwrtyd Wells, Powys. The location is tranquil and picturesque with our home positioned in the Irfon River valley. We are surrounded by mountains: The Epynt Range, Black Mountains, & Cambrian Mountains and Brecon Beacons. From the B&B, it is only 10-minute stroll to the centre of Llanwrtyd, with a few shops, 3 pubs, a couple of cafes and restaurants and a garage.
.”If you want a cosy and relaxed setting that just feels like its wrapping its arms around you, then this is the place!” – Denise B Nov’21
Rest, Relaxation, Wellbeing
We hope you love it here as much as we do. The day we fell in love with this house and decided to move here, the sky had just cleared following a heavy shower. The sun came out; a perfect rainbow filled the sky; and the farmer and his dogs were working the sheep. It was an idyllic moment, a snap decision and one we never regret for a moment.
In 2005 years ago Hubby and I, and our, then, seven-year-old son, moved from the hectic hustle and bustle of city life in the busy East of England. We found a haven in this tranquil, rural setting in the Heart of Wales.
We happened upon Llanwrtyd in a frantic need for respite from the stresses of Hubby’s corporate life and ended up sticking a pin in a map on a page of nothingness. We came for two night’s refuge and didn’t go home. Wellness and wellbeing became the focus of our lifestyle.
Finding our spiritual home…
When we arrived in LW that wet weekend evening we chanced upon a little bistro with no other customers bar one friendly Welshman. He happened to be the ex-headmaster of the village school, an eager pupil arrived, meeting him for some additional education support. We chatted for ages. The next day, also rainy, we perused the properties for sale, daydreaming of our distant retirement. The next day we did a bit more than window shop and went viewing a few cute houses.
That night we talked and talked and talked. Why were we waiting until our retirement to live our lives? What if we didn’t make it there? What about the quality of life for our son, educated in overcrowded classrooms in Essex, unable to play outside alone etc etc?
The next day a blazing orange sun rose over the horizon and lit our future path. We put an offer on the house. In Essex we handed in our notice at our respective places of work. Our son was pulled out of school. That was October 2004. On 4th February 2005 we drove towards the light of our new future.
And we have never looked back.
“The hosts were really friendly, relaxed and just lovely people. A great quirky little place to stay.” -Penny – Aug ’18 via booking.com
