Why we love it...

Unique boutique hotel in a great location

The Place

Neil Kedward and his partner Zoe Agar acquired this place as a wreck and after nine months of blood sweat and tears – they worked on a shoestring – got a beautiful result. The former somewhat quirky mansion is now a unique boutique hotel and restaurant that gets a big vote of confidence from our series editor, Fiona Duncan. Its magic worked on her as soon as she arrived. The exterior is unusual, with two facades, one tall and Georgian, painted brilliant white, the other with gables and Arts and Crafts elements that also crop up inside.
She could not fault her bedroom. The rooms are spread out across the house, a cottage and an old long house; there are also four self catering cottages with good views – ideal for families, who are allowed to pick their own food from the nearby vegetable garden.
Inside the house public spaces include a relaxing library with chessboard, books and games. We especially like the light breakfast room. Chef Duncan Barnham uses local Welsh ingredients to memorable effect and has his sights on a Michelin star.
