Good Hotel Guide Review

Amid sheep-grazed pastures, this 16th-century farmhouse at the foot of the Rhinog mountains has glorious views over Cardigan Bay to the Llyn peninsula. Since moving here in 1985, Peter and Paula Thompson have created an unpretentious, welcoming guest house. Interiors have exposed timbers, inglenooks and amusing quirks such as a walk-in wardrobe with a sea view. Bedrooms are in the farmhouse and a converted hay barn and granary. Two sea-facing house rooms have a four-poster. A family room in the granary has its own access. Guests gather for drinks in the lounge before dinner is served in the atmospheric old hall. A member of Slow Food UK, Peter Thompson cooks an impressive nightly-changing menu of local produce in season, with imaginative choices at each course – maybe Welsh Black beef, salt marsh lamb, free-range pork, mackerel, mussels, crab … Children’s portions or high tea are available on request. Let them know if you are vegetarian. Breakfast brings award-winning sausages, dry-cured bacon, and salmon from a Pembrokeshire smokery. Afterwards, ‘there are beautiful walks and bicycle rides up the Mawddach estuary’.
