If you are after a home from home with a family feel this is defiantly the place for you. Sarah and Derek were extremely welcoming, they obviously have a love for hosting and sharing stories. The whole house was deliciously decorated with exquisite furniture; tasteful decoration and we were greeted with a warm fire and tons of candles... Really stunning....

I stayed here for one night, mid-week. My room was gorgeous, immaculate and tasefully furnished, and had wonderful views of the beautiful countryside.

Our room and en-suite were spacious and stylish, decorated in a contemporary 'beach hut' style. They were pristine and spotless. The breakfasts were delicious, featuring local produce and with plenty of choice. Our hosts Sarah and Derrick, were delightful and made us feel very welcome. We really enjoyed our week at Bwlchmelyn - it really was the perfect 'peaceful retreat'!
