Good Hotel Guide Review
Readers are unequivocal in their praise for Beverley and David Harrison-Wood’s ‘startlingly good guest house’, in a 19th-century mansion refurbished to eco-friendly standards. ‘We liked this very friendly, well-presented place.’ Bedrooms on the first and second floors (some with beams and a sloping ceiling) have a large bed and plenty of extras: robes and slippers, a capsule coffee/hot chocolate machine, fresh milk and home-baked biscuits, books and DVDs to borrow. In the evening, stay in for ‘a really special dining experience’. Large windows, a striking central log burner and deep red walls give the dining room a ‘tranquil, elegant’ feel. Chefs Abbie Jenkins and David Harrison-Wood’s modern European cooking is ‘particularly good’. (A steak menu, from a locally bred herd, is particularly pleasing to meat eaters.) Characteristic dishes: pan-seared duck, passion fruit reduction; sea bass, coriander and vanilla velouté, deep-fried spinach. ‘And then there is breakfast – another delight.’ Fill up on a full Welsh, then head into the day: the Coastal Path is minutes away, for walkers and cyclists; the hosts can help arrange dolphin-spotting trips.
