Good Hotel Guide Review

‘A cross between a hotel, a B&B and a holiday cottage, with the advantages of each, this is a very special place,’ say regular Guide readers this year. ‘Generous, caring and enthusiastic’ hosts Richard Morgan-Price and Huw Thomas own this ‘first-rate’ conversion of a 19th-century livestock farm set in ‘beautiful grounds’. Accommodation is in ‘magnificently equipped’ suites in former farm outbuildings. ‘Our well-lit suite, with a private, garden-facing patio, had masses of storage space and a large, warm bathroom. Magazines and novels had been provided, along with extra lamps for reading by. Fresh Welsh cakes appeared daily; a splendid farm shop at the end of the lane supplied a good supper, eaten in the comfort of our sizeable sitting room – a new and satisfying venture for us. The well-stocked kitchen had everything we needed, and housekeeping staff did the washing-up next morning. We were quite happy to forgo hotel dinners!’ A varied breakfast is ‘of the highest quality’ – ‘no mugs, but beautiful tea cups and saucers’. (Janet Allom, Hilary Cameron, Tony Fisher, and others)

Guest comments

'Richard and Huw are charming hosts. Richard is wonderful at breakfast, chats to all his guests and is always keen to hear what we have enjoyed and reports of restaurants they recommend. We had splendid weather and found our private patio a bonus. It was so relaxing sitting in the sunshine after breakfast or early evening with a glass of wine in complete silence to enjoy views of the delightful gardens. ' - Janet & Dennis Allom - May, 2017
'From the moment I arrived at this luxury bed and breakfast, I was made to feel at home thanks to the generous and warm welcome shown to me by the owners Richard and Huw. My accommodation was spotlessly clean, well equipped and furnished by the owners who have a fine eye for detail. The breakfast was excellent. The extensive grounds, even in winter, were well maintained. ' - AC - February, 2017
'Luxury... Oh yes!!! Comfort... 10/10. Richard and Huw... amazing Hosts. Food... 10/10. Wonderful Gardens A real Fantastic getaway surrounded by some brilliant villages. A magical birthday weekend. ' - Tony Fisher - December, 2016
