Good Hotel Guide Review
Quirky and ‘very different’, this good-humoured restaurant-with-rooms is ‘much enjoyed’ for its lively, inclusive atmosphere. The converted stone-built barn and granary stand in tranquil farmland with glorious views to Snowdonia. Jack Matthews and Millie Mantle manage for Judith ‘Bun’ Matthews. Bedrooms (with names like Pink Spotty Jug and Button’s Room) are rustic, with a sense of fun, but each is seriously well equipped with tea- and coffee-making facilities, home-made cake or biscuits and a quality music system. For something entirely different, book a stay in the Pink Hut, a cosy shepherd’s hut in the grounds, which is fitted with a small wood-burning stove and ‘full mod cons’. Light lunches may be served on the patio in good weather; in the evenings, ‘excellent’ set menus, use local produce and foraged wild ingredients. Breakfast is a communal affair. 2 sitting rooms, restaurant with sitting area (open to non-residents). Private dining. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). Background music (‘but we’re happy to turn it off’). Civil wedding licence, function facilities. Garden, with seating. Barbecue Hut. Tennis court (racquets and balls provided). Parking. Babes-in-arms, children over 12 (extra bed £40) and small, well-behaved dogs (1 room; surrounding farmland has livestock) welcomed. Resident dogs. 10 mins’ drive from the bridge to Anglesey; 25 mins’ drive to the ferry terminal at Holyhead; Llanddwyn beach is close by. 5 bedrooms (1 on ground floor; 1 in garden). Per room B&B £90; Pink Hut £75. Dinner £30–£35.
