Good Hotel Guide Review
Rustic and folksy, Paula and Peter Thompson’s ‘quirky’ 16th-century farmhouse at the base of the Rhinog mountains is a ‘friendly, welcoming’ spot and a fine base for exploring a ‘lovely part of the country’. There’s old-world charm in the log fires, ancient oak beams and spiral stone staircase; fans come for the homespun ambience. ‘A wood-burner lit in the afternoon made the lounge a cosy place in the evening.’ Unpretentious bedrooms (some with a newly updated bathroom) are in the main building and a converted 18th-century granary. Ring to discuss room choices before booking: every one is different. In the oak-beamed hall lit with lamps and candles, ‘dinner is the highlight’. Peter Thompson’s ‘commendable’ daily-changing menu puts the emphasis on local seafood and meats in dishes such as Rhydlewis smoked salmon, lemon and horseradish mayonnaise; Welsh Black beef rib-eye steak, red onion and crab apple marmalade. An ‘interesting’ wine list provides liquid accompaniment. Step outside before dusk: ‘Most enchanting of all, the views across Cardigan Bay gave a sunset that would compare with anywhere else in the world.’
