Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Unfussy’, ‘warm’, ‘genuine’, Neil and Zoë Kedward’s stylish country hotel stands in ‘flourishing’ gardens near the coast. Step into the 18th-century mansion: there are oil paintings and watercolours, sofas and easy chairs, lots of books, ‘a table with a chessboard all set up and ready to go’. In the main house and three garden cottages, choose one of the ‘luxurious’ bedrooms; each has its own character, with art, antiques and views of the grounds or vast countryside. Six cottage suites opened in spring 2016, some with a private garden. Gather in the lounges or on the sun terrace for pre-dinner canapés. In the restaurant (‘smart white tablecloths, shiny table settings’), ‘unusual flavours and tastes’ – perhaps Welsh lamb, boulangère potato, sheep curd, confit fennel – are ‘much enjoyed’. Come morning, start the day with ‘excellent’ pastries and ‘a good selection for the muesli brigade’; scrambled eggs receive ‘top marks’. Have little ones in tow? They’ll find plenty to do, with boules, croquet and garden tree swings; the sandy beach at Saundersfoot is within a 20-minute drive. (MC, DB, and others). This hotel is a member of Pride of Britain hotels.

Guest comments

'This is a real haven when you arrive in the dark after a long drive. I was put in the comfortable Blue Room from which however, you can hear conversation at reception .I took supper by a delicious crackling log fire on a velvet sofa in a comfortable wood-panelled sitting room.. They have a fine library of good books to read. The staff were young, charming and helpful, and it is beautifully quiet. ' - Tessa Stuart - February, 2017
'Very comfortable, excellent service. The food was excellent, with a la carte and five or seven course tasting menus. New chef Allister Barsby, ex-Gidleigh Park, is well worth the money. We had the seven-course on one night with the recommended flight of wines - a well-considered and unusual selection. Cooked breakfasts were excellent but the buffet table was a bit disappointing. ' - Peter Jacobsen - December, 2016
'An imposing building, this hotel oozes relaxed but attentive service. Our room on the first floor looked over rolling countryside and a beautifully designed formal garden. Local suppliers and produce from the garden are creatively cooked and presented. Breakfast,in a light west-facing room with a terrace, included smoked kippers with grilled full-flavoured tomatoes. Neil Kedward is a relaxed, jean-clad host, who I think wants his guests to leave relaxed, refreshed and renewed. He and Zoe succeed in spades. ' - David Birnie - July, 2011
