Good Hotel Guide Review

On the remote Llyn peninsula, Gunna and Chris Chown’s Georgian country house, in a magical woodland setting, is run as a much-loved restaurant-with-rooms, offering ‘good food, a relaxed atmosphere, peace and quiet, and a beautifully maintained garden in an area of outstanding natural beauty’. In spring, wisteria drapes the veranda, before more than 100 old rose varieties come into bloom. Bedrooms are tastefully furnished, and have milk in a minibar, and a cafetière. Readers liked their room overlooking the kitchen garden, with ‘a king-size bed, armchairs and a coffee table, home-made shortbread’, but weren’t as fond of the wet room shower with squeegee mop. Having taken a step back, Gunna once again runs front-of-house, while Hugh Bracegirdle cooks a three-course dinner of home-grown and local produce, Welsh Black beef, mountain and salt marsh lamb and responsibly sourced fish. ‘We particularly enjoyed monkfish with shallots and bacon, and peppered venison with a wee venison pie.’ Snowdonia is on the doorstep, Blue Flag beaches close by.
