Good Hotel Guide Review

Behind mature trees in 26 acres of gardens and meadows overlooking the Preseli hills, this whitewashed 18th-century mansion offers a ‘bucolic setting with that “away from it all” feeling’, reports a reader after this year’s visit. Rooms, some in the main house, others in nearby cottages, range from contemporary rustic – stand-alone baths, tastefully neutral hues – to warmly traditional. ‘Everything was harmonious and pleasing to the eye, the bedroom restful and well appointed.’ It was also slightly overheated: ‘If staying longer I’d have requested a lighter duvet or sheet and blanket.’ Neil and Zoë Kedward’s hotel is about eating as well as sleeping. Chef Allister Barsby’s ‘accomplished food showed flashes of imagination with unusual but successful flavour combinations’ – perhaps salt cod, braised lettuce, tomato, tempura anchovy, shallot and bacon sauce. The wine list is ‘strong if somewhat pricey’. Afternoon tea is served in one of the handsome lounges, cocktails are in the candlelit bar. Breakfast was ‘wonderful and varied’. ‘I had some of the best eggs Benedict I can recall; the sourdough pancakes with blueberries were a delight.’ (Sara Hollowell, PJ)

Guest comments

'The setting is bucolic. Everything is harmonious and pleasing to the eye. The only downside was that we were a bit too hot at night. Had we been staying more than two nights perhaps this could have been remedied by requesting a lighter duvet or a sheet and blanket. The food was accomplished and showed flashes of imagination with unusual but successful flavour combinations . A strong if somewhat pricey wine list. Breakfast was wonderful and varied. ' - Sara Hollowell - September, 2017
'This is a real haven when you arrive in the dark after a long drive. I was put in the comfortable Blue Room from which however, you can hear conversation at reception .I took supper by a delicious crackling log fire on a velvet sofa in a comfortable wood-panelled sitting room.. They have a fine library of good books to read. The staff were young, charming and helpful, and it is beautifully quiet. ' - Tessa Stuart - February, 2017
'Very comfortable, excellent service. The food was excellent, with a la carte and five or seven course tasting menus. New chef Allister Barsby, ex-Gidleigh Park, is well worth the money. We had the seven-course on one night with the recommended flight of wines - a well-considered and unusual selection. Cooked breakfasts were excellent but the buffet table was a bit disappointing. ' - Peter Jacobsen - December, 2016
