Good Hotel Guide Review
‘More than a B&B, this is a home that welcomes you for bed and breakfast.’ Trusted Guide correspondents in 2017 heartily endorse this characterful place, a converted cowshed infused with the personality of its owner, Eluned Rowlands, and her late husband, John. ‘The hostess is enthusiastic about Welsh paintings and painters’, and the house is filled with artwork by the late Kyffin Williams, alongside many ‘interesting objects’. Bedrooms are rustic (‘rugged, not twee’). ‘Our room was practically a bedsit, with an alcove dressing room between bedroom and bathroom. We watched the stars through the skylight window above the bed before pulling down the blind. I slept like a hedgehog.’ Dine in Caernarfon, a ten-minute drive away; in the morning, wake to an Aga-cooked breakfast at the chunky oak table in the spacious dining/living room – perhaps a ‘plump, juicy kipper’ or local bacon and sausages off the ‘extensive’ breakfast menu. Tregarth-born, Eluned Rowlands has much knowledge to share on public footpaths and nearby places of interest – and will happily advise in Welsh, if you prefer. (Sarah and Tony Thomas)
