Good Hotel Guide Review
A Bechstein grand piano presides over the beamed breakfast room in this granite former cowshed, today a modest, characterful B&B run by Eluned Rowlands. Come and explore: the house is filled with Welsh- and English-language books; the walls are hung with works by Welsh painters including Kyffin Williams and Gwilym Prichard. The whole is as much a paean to Welsh culture as it is a reflection of its Tregarth-born hostess – an academic, art collector and gourmand – and her late husband, the author and musician John Rowlands. (Even the name ‘Y Goeden Eirin’ – ‘The Plum Tree’ – is a homage to the collection of stories by Gwynedd writer John Gwilym Jones.) Two of the rustic bedrooms, with a shower room of local slate, are in a renovated outbuilding just across the lawn; a spacious room in the main house has a settee and a desk, a bathtub in the bathroom. All are stocked with cafetière coffee, herbal tea, sherry, fruit, Welsh cakes. Breakfast on home-baked bread and home-made preserves; local eggs, bacon and sausages are cooked on the Aga. Rugged Snowdonia awaits.
