Good Hotel Guide Review

Richard Morgan-Price and Huw Thomas are personable hosts at their dog-friendly B&B with a difference, in gardens and grounds with views to the Preseli hills. Readers are unanimous in their praise for the ‘generous and warm welcome’ and the ‘fine eye for detail’. Suites, in converted stables, barn and granary, have a garden terrace and a sitting room with a minibar, fresh milk in a fridge, an espresso machine and Welsh cakes. The separate Garden Room is smaller, with no sitting room, but it has a terrace with a covered pergola. Such spacious accommodation is ideal for guests wishing to stay longer than one night, to explore the nearby beaches and Ceredigion countryside or to walk the Coast Path. In the morning, tables are set with fine china and fresh flowers, for an ‘excellent breakfast’ of freshly squeezed juice, Agen prunes, porridge, the full Welsh or local smoked salmon, smoked haddock or cockles, bacon and laver bread with a poached egg. For dinner there are restaurants not far away, or you might eat a picnic supper alfresco and wait as night falls and stars spangle the Bible-black sky.
