Eight acres of gardens and parkland create a glorious setting for this luxurious manor house dating from the 14th century. Walls of local granite, oak-beam ceilings, and an inglenook fireplace add character. The bedrooms come in different sizes, each with its own idiosyncratic style. A few have four-poster or half-tester beds. The restaurant serves tasty, locally sourced dishes such as braised lamb with roasted vegetables, or a traditional Welsh cawl (a hearty stew)
with a tomato and onion casserole. The hotel is 3½ miles northeast of Harlech.
