Good Hotel Guide Review

Leave the West Wales coast road, head down a country lane, and you’ve suddenly arrived at this ‘superb’ B&B, a former Victorian farm among ‘delightful grounds’ in ‘complete silence’. Owners and ‘charming hosts’ Richard Morgan-Price and Huw Thomas show ‘wonderful attention to detail’. Visitors choose between a garden room with a pergola, and individually designed, self-contained suites, converted from the stables, threshing barn and granary. In the suites, the sitting room has a hospitality tray with daily fresh milk and tasty Welsh cakes, while the bedroom sports cheerily patterned wallpaper, woollen blankets, a king-size bed. Each has a fridge, minibar, capsule coffee machine and private patio overlooking the gardens: ‘an ideal spot to sip a glass of wine’. Breakfast, ‘beautifully cooked’ by Richard Morgan-Price, starts the day with a ‘great choice, and home-made bread’. For all other meals, an ever-updated list of local eateries is supplied, with Richard keen to receive feedback. If you can’t bear the thought of venturing out, a ‘marvellous’ farm shop at the top of the lane has ample provisions. ‘I fully recommend it to anyone who enjoys the good life.’ (JA, and others)
