It’s a tribute to this thriving sector that even in this most challenging of years, we’ve seen a raft of exciting new openings, as well as established names upping their games. Whatever style of getaway you’re looking for, in whatever region, you can be sure of a welcoming and safe place to stay.

All of us can appreciate all the hard work that goes into delivering the hotel and restaurant standards that awards like this acknowledge.  2020 has been a momentous year not least due to the crisis that we have worked through together which makes receiving this award even sweeter.   Over the last 12 months we have achieved 5 star hotel status and become the only venue in South West Wales to ever achieve this standard.  Thomas our GM and the team have worked tirelessly to improve every aspect of our guest experience and food & drink offering.  We have also installed state of the art kitchens and back of house areas so that our team can feel proud of all the spaces they work in.   Four fabulous guestrooms and our gallery lounge have been reimagined by our designers and dear friends Martin Hulbert and Jay Grierson.  An exciting new terrace bar and lake have also been added to the front of the property to enhance this outside space for our guests.   But we haven’t stopped there, with significant investments made to run Phase 3 electricity and high speed broadband it our location deep in the Pembrokeshire countryside.

Our General Manager Thomas and owners Neil & Zoe could not be more proud of the team for staying strong in 2020 despite all the momentous changes we have introduced whilst managing through this nasty pandemic.
