Good Hotel Guide Review

With the vast Brechfa Forest on its margins, this ‘gorgeous, lovely hotel’ whose gardens are bordered by the River Marlais is perfect for hikers and bikers. Dogs stay free; biscuits, bowls and information on local walks are provided by owners Paul Bennett and Melissa Hurley as well as a ‘wonderful warm welcome’. Since arriving in 2019 they have been updating interiors in the 16th-century country house, and have plans for the gardens. ‘Spacious, clean and comfortable’ bedrooms are beautifully styled, with antiques, perhaps a sleigh bed, beams, bare stone, and Myddfai toiletries. Dryslwyn was once the loom room. Coedwig Brechfa, with its own front door, super-king-size bed, separate seating area and sofa bed, has been a stable and bakery. Or when it’s night above the dingle starry, retire to Dylan Thomas-inspired ground-floor, Laugharne. 
Paul’s scrupulously sourced nightly menu might include North Sea cod, creamed borlotti beans, lime and herb crust. ‘Meals were tasty and always served with a smile.’ At breakfast there is porridge with local honey and Penderyn whisky, free-range eggs, maybe juiced garden apples.
