Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Everything is exquisite’ at this ‘very welcoming’ country house retreat (Relais & Châteaux), where goldfinches, song thrushes and blackbirds flit about the ‘beautiful’ grounds leading to a vast bird reserve. Queen Victoria once owned the 16th-century manor house and cherished its gardens. Following the death of Joan Reen, it has been turned by new owners,John and Jennifer Talbot, into a restaurant-with-rooms open five days a week. Each of the ‘comfortable’ bedrooms has its own character, with an ‘opulent’ four-poster here, an antique brass bedstead there. For extra space to lounge about, choose a garden suite with a patio and views of the gardens and mountains. Walking country surrounds: stomp about the rugged Cambrian ridges, or head for Borth beach, then return for Gareth Ward’s ‘superlative’ Michelin-starred tasting menus, which might include wild duck, salt pear, shiso; scampi, black garlic, rhubarb. ‘We simply murmured in delight as we ate,’ on fan wrote.
