Good Hotel Guide Review

A night in a threshing barn may not sound like the last word in luxury, but ‘there’s nothing to find fault with’ at this B&B conversion of a 19th-century livestock farm, where hens wander and chuckle in the ‘beautiful’ grounds. Richard Morgan-Price and Huw Thomas are the ‘friendly’, hands-on hosts. Choose to sleep in stables, mill, barn or granary – in each case, find an ‘immaculate’ suite with a large bed (twins available), a capsule coffee-maker, fresh milk, high-end toiletries, a separate sitting room and private outside space. There’s no private lounge in the ‘bijou’ garden room, made countryside chic in soothing creams and whites; instead, step out on to a terrace with a covered pergola, right in the middle of the garden. Order breakfast in bed, or head for the breakfast room, in another converted barn, where tables are laid with ‘crisp white linen’. Here, sip glasses of freshly squeezed orange juice while tucking into organic yogurt and a wide choice of cooked dishes: kippers, local smoked salmon, a ‘traditional Welsh’ with laver bread, eggs every way. More reports, please.

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
