Caeiago Riding Centre
Reviewed 29 May 2017

This was my 6th visit to Caeiago. Every time I go there it is with a feeling of homecoming. Lesley is perfect hostess and is always ready to greet one with a big smile and plenty of home cooked fare. Everyone looks forward to her meals which are traditional. People with special diets are also catered for. The rooms are all on the same pattern and are simple, functional and comfortable. The place goes from strength to strength. This time the lead riders were Charlie, Leslie's Father, who belies his years and seems indestructible. He thinks nothing of spending days on end in the saddle and getting off and on at times to open and shut gates. He also manages to cram in a number of other activities. Nina has been there for quite a time now and is cheerful, bubbly and always attentive. Lucy is fairly new but is equally helpful and cheerful. This means that rides are tailored to suit those on it with special attention being paid to those who might have strained a muscle or two. No-one ever feels left out. The two girls on the yard and in the house are excellent. Adrienn is from Hungary and loves working both inside and out. Sophie is English and is just great. The dogs, Bella and Dora, are a permanent fixture. They were given tow longish walks by us morning and evening and love going round. Bella enjoys a dip in the stream going after sticks. Boris is a new addition and was found as a stray. He is a lovely cat. Nina has been finding new ways of going to the various places. The Lake Ride is a bit special now has it is mainly off road and leads on through an enchanted forest.... We had many canters going there and back. The horses are well prepared and Lesley and Roddy make sure that each rider is given an appropriate mount. Some of the horses have been there for a long time but still retain a zest for life and are forward going. Younger ones are introduced each year but before the paying guests are allowed to ride them they are thoroughly sussed out by Nina, Lucy etc... The large barn is airy and comfortable for the horses so much so that they are very often to be found at full stretch lying down! I throughly recommend this place too and cannot wait to go back.

I was thrilled to find that the horses were as willing and well mannered as I remembered from 12 years ago!!! The yard, tack etc were immaculate, rides safe and breathtaking, rooms/beds clean and comfortable, and the food fresh and delicious. Lesley, Charlie and staff ensure that the whole experience is a delight. Special thanks to Nina for leading rides, photos and bird identification. The consistently high standard is a tribute to hard work and commitment. Highly recommend.

I have just had a wonderful trip to Caeiago. You are extremely well looked afte & I enjoyed eating delicious & plentiful dinners with Les, Roddy & Charlie. Great care goes in matching riders with suitable horses for their ability & confidence. I loved the opportunity to bond with my horses by grooming them in the morning. It feels like a home from home & no matter I was travelling alone due to the warm welcome & the friendliness of the other guests. The countryside is breathtaking & all the better for seeing it from horseback. I couldn't rate Caeiago more highly!

First time visitor to Caeiago over the Easter holidays and loved every minute of it. Lesley and her team made my four days such a joy. Beautiful meals, great accommodation and the horses were terrific. An excellent adventure for experienced riders who want to enjoy some of the most beautiful countryside in Wales. I will definitely be returning. Tracey J-M

I genuinely don't know where to start with this review. Every single aspect of my holiday was wonderful and even better than I'd hoped to imagine.

I have to start somewhere so let's start with the horses. You know how you read in magazines about these magical, fabled horses who go when you ask, and stop when you ask, and don't barge, or race, or jump ten feet at the sight of a bag in a hedge? Well these are those horses. Beautifully behaved, beautifully kept, properly well-loved horses - their enjoyment of their lives and their jobs shines out of them.

The house is beautiful and immaculate. The home-cooked food is amazing. The views, of course, are stunning. The rooms are comfortable and homely.

And Lesley, Roddy and Charlie are the most welcoming hosts you could wish for. You feel at home, in their home, as if you're a visiting member of far-flung family rather than a paying guest.

I went on my own and had the most marvellous time, three days, three very different but equally wonderful rides - I will certainly be back, and as soon as possible!
