What our guests say -

Every year we, as a large group of adults, rent a country house for the weekend. We have just spent a marvellous weekend at Bryn Tanat. Susan and Peter were on hand if required but allowed us uninterrupted use of the house to enjoy at our leisure. We have been to many properties over the years and this is definitely one of the very best. .

Thank you so much to Bryn Tanat for a 30th birthday to remember!! Beautiful house, great food, stunning location and the perfect place for our Gatsby-themed party :)
