Good Hotel Guide Review

Surrounded by rolling countryside, yet just a hill away from the sea, this ‘first-rate’ former Victorian farm B&B ‘is a very special place set in beautiful grounds’. Returning Guide readers this year found everything ‘just as wonderful as before’. ‘Enthusiastic’ Richard Morgan-Price and Huw Thomas are ‘charming hosts’. A series of converted outbuildings houses ‘magnificently equipped’ suites. Each different, they have a homely separate sitting area, Welsh woollens, fresh daily milk and Welsh cakes on the hospitality tray, extra reading lamps. ‘It was so relaxing sitting on our private patio with a glass of wine, enjoying the delightful views.’ A new garden room, slightly smaller than the suites, has its own pergola. The hosts have ‘excellent’ dining recommendations (and ‘Richard is always keen to hear’ reports afterwards), but readers found ‘the splendid farm shop at the end of the lane, and the well-stocked kitchen had everything we needed – and staff looked after the washing-up next morning’. Richard Morgan-Price’s ‘plentiful, freshly cooked breakfast is served by very friendly staff with fresh linen on the tables and beautiful chinaware’. (Janet Allom, 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
