Good Hotel Guide Review
In a market town by the Preseli hills, this ‘superbly located’ B&B in a powder-blue Georgian town house delighted readers again this year. ‘An exceptional establishment. Every need we had was happily met.’ The curatorial owners, Helen and Chris Sheldon, display the works of Welsh artists and photographers in two lounges, alongside a harmonious blend of wood floors, earthy hues, antiques and a wood-burning stove – a perfect spot for the hosts’ home-made cakes and cream teas. Come sunshine, eat in the terraced gardens alongside views of Cardigan Bay. Individually decorated, the ‘immaculate, welcoming bedrooms’ mix antique and contemporary finds, with bold colour; two have an original fireplace; four gaze across the brine. All have a generous bed (even the ‘single’ has a double), woollen blankets, comfy seating, a pod coffee machine, robes. ‘First-class’ breakfasts include organic free-range eggs, locally made breads, a cooked daily special. Bicycle hire and packed lunches can be arranged: the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path runs through the valley below the rear garden terrace. The hosts have great advice on nearby dining. ‘Our only regret was not staying longer.’ (Julia Spotswood)
