Good Hotel Guide Review

The leafy, flower-lined drive is a colourful welcome to Gary and Lindsay Ashcroft’s part-Georgian rectory on the Llyn peninsula. The ‘friendly’ hosts are especially praised for their ‘outstanding attention to detail’. Visitors are greeted with tea in the sitting room, and a crisply burning fire in cold weather; ‘special treats’ (sherry, chocolate) in the bedrooms; and a menu of aromatherapy massages and beauty treatments that can be arranged. ‘They have thought of everything when it comes to visitors’ comfort.’ In the lounge, antiques, artwork and deep leather sofas invite lazy afternoons, while bedrooms are homely, with broad views across the gardens. The bright dining room, whose elegant period windows catch the morning sun, is the venue for breakfast at a communal table, starting with an ‘abundance’ of cereals and fresh fruits. Generous cooked dishes are prepared using locally sourced fish and meat, and eggs from free-range hens, served alongside home-made bread and preserves. The well-informed Ashcrofts will ‘helpfully’ supply a list of nearby restaurants, beaches and myriad local attractions, from golf clubs to boat trips and heritage railway rides. Picnics are a request away.

Guest comments

'Lindsay is one of the most welcoming people I've ever met, and the breakfasts, cooked by her husband Gary, are delicious. Stunning grounds, and nicely decorated rooms throughout. The bedrooms are roomy and provided with nice touches-sherry and chocolates, plenty of toiletries and an informative welcome pack. The beds help provide a cosy nights sleep. A lovely break in a beautiful area. ' - Sharon Warn - August, 2018
'Beautiful property in a peaceful location. Extremely comfortable beds and the rooms were lovely and clean. Good breakfasts and very helpful hosts. ' - Lesley Winship - August, 2014
