Good Hotel Guide Review

Second-generation hosts, Judith and Michael Cooper with their son Oliver, welcome new arrivals with tea and Welsh cakes in the lounge or in the ‘lovely’ garden at their pink-washed Georgian house on the bustling main street of this small town on the Nevern estuary. It has a home-from-home feel. ‘Everywhere is comfy and cosy and, to me, very familiar,’ writes a reader who first stayed as a child and now drives out from London with her own family. Bedrooms are ‘nothing too grand’ but ‘pretty and well equipped’, with contemporary furniture, bright fabrics, Welsh wool blankets, art by local artists, books, local information and Mason & Miller toiletries. A family of three can book a double with adjoining single. En suite shower rooms have been recently renovated, with a bigger, better shower, and if you fancy a good soak, there is a bathroom for guests to enjoy. A varied breakfast menu includes Glamorgan sausages, kippers and smoked salmon, as well as the full Cnapan. ‘It will set you up for the rest of the day’ to explore the spectacular coastline or the footpaths and bridleways of the Preseli hills. Guests can now hire electric-powered bikes with self-guided tours of places where the Bluetsones of Stonehenge were supposedly quarried.(HH, RG)
