You will be staying in a really beautiful wooded valley, it is carpeted in blue belles in spring and in summer it can be a real sun trap. The old Welsh name for the area 'Dôl boeth', which means hot meadow. In autumn the colurs are truly dramatic, and in winter - well we're in Wales so you can experience all four seasons in one day, but on a bright, crisp winters morning you wouldn't wish to be anywhere else.
You will be in the heart of the country, no distant rumble of cars - sleeping with the accompaniment of total silence is truly rejuvinating - a treatment few posh spas could offer.
Our only neighbours are sheep, badgers and foxes with air cover provided by Red kites and buzzards.
We are however not at all remote, the village of Llanrhystud is just over a mile away and the beach just another half mile. The village has an 18-hole golf course with swimming pool, leisure facilities, driving range and restaurant.

See 'Other things to Note' for a whole lot more info. on what the area has to offer.
