Good Hotel Guide Review
Carmarthenshire native Wendy Beaney and her husband, David, run this ‘stylishly minimalist’ restaurant-with-rooms in their thoughtfully restored Georgian mansion, which stands in wooded gardens overlooking the Tywi estuary. The ‘excellent’ view from the period dining room is fine accompaniment for Paul Owen’s seasonal menus of locally farmed vegetables, Welsh meats and Carmarthen Bay seafood. Bedrooms with garden or river views are supplied with a host of extras: home-made treats, bathrobes, Welsh toiletries. Norman castles at Llansteffan and Laugharne, and the botanic gardens’ futuristic greenhouse, are equally within reach; Dylan Thomas’s contemplative boathouse is a half-hour’s drive away.
