‘Worth the journey! More

Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Worth the journey!’ Overlooking the Pembrokeshire coast, the Boissevain family’s 19th-century neo-Gothic house is ‘an attractive building’ in a ‘beautiful’ location. Architectural features include striking ogee-headed doors and windows, moulded plaster ceilings, an Adam-style fireplace. Public rooms are extensive and comfortable. Bright, chic bedrooms sport cool coastal shades. ‘Housekeeping is 5 star.’ A superior double has a four-poster, a sofa bed for an extra guest, views across to Caldey Island. Dog-friendly rooms in the coach house lead directly to the garden. In the new restaurant, Rhosyn, head chef Richard Browning’s unpretentious menus focus on the area’s produce. An atmospheric restored chapel is available for private hire.
