Good Hotel Guide Review
With a home-from-home ambience, this Georgian B&B on Newport’s main street is an ideal base from which to explore the Pembrokeshire Coast national park. Perfect hosts Judith and Michael Cooper welcome new arrivals with tea or coffee and home-made Welsh cakes. Interiors are contemporary, spruce and bright. Rear bedrooms overlook the green oasis garden, while those at the front have views of a Norman castle on the slopes of Carningli (‘mountain of angels’). They have Welsh wool blankets, works by local artists, fresh milk. The house has a licensed bar, so you can relax with a drink by the log fire in the sitting room or, on fine days, in the sunshine. There is plenty of choice at breakfast – the full Welsh and full vegetarian, a Scottish kipper, smoked salmon, porridge with maple syrup and chia seeds and, for vegans, chickpea and apricot patties, and vegan sausage, grilled tomato, sautéed mushrooms. There are riding stables nearby, or you can hire an electric bike, play golf on Newport links, relax on Newport sands, watch for greenshank and goosander on the Nevern estuary, and at night you’ll find plenty of places in which to dine.
