Good Hotel Guide Review

Behind a powder-blue facade, Helen and Chris Sheldon’s Georgian town house B&B has the welcoming feel of a private home, and unexpected, spectacular views from the rear terrace, across Cardigan Bay to the Preseli hills. Bedrooms have contemporary decor, with perhaps bright fabric headboards or an accent wall of deep blue, and the occasional well-chosen antique. Four out of six rooms have a sea view, with the two largest big enough for a family. Downstairs you’ll find lots of comfy seating, books, magazines and an honesty bar. Let them know ahead of time if you would like a cream tea to enjoy by the log-burning stove or alfresco, where you can toast the fishing-boat-bobbing harbour view with accompanying bubbles. A continental breakfast includes home-baked bread and granola, and you can order packed lunches. One regular guest regrets that they don’t do dinner, but Helen and Chris can suggest places to eat, while Llys Meddyg in Newport (see entry) is a ten-minute drive or taxi ride away. Bike hire can be arranged, or you can walk the Pembrokeshire Coast Path that runs below or hop on a Poppit Rocket coastal bus.
