“Imaginative and well-presented food” from “inventive taster menus” in “a wonderful setting” – dining at this lavishly restored 17th-century mansion overlooking the Preseli Hills is “an amazing experience from start to finish”. Neil and Zoe Kedward, who rescued the property from dereliction a dozen years ago, also own Coast at Saundersfoot and the Beach House on the Gower.
“Wonderful fusions of taste on the five-course tasting menu” and “the best afternoon tea” from chef Allister Barsby (ex-Gidleigh Park) are among the attractions at this plush 17th-century bolthole overlooking the Preseli Hills. It’s a far cry from ten years ago, when owner Neil Kedward, a former civil engineer, stood in as chef after rescuing the derelict property with his wife Zoe. Now they also own Coast at Saundersfoot and the Beach House on the Gower.
“Just such a pleasant experience overall” – a plush country bolthole, overlooking the Preseli Hills; chef Allister Barsby, ex-of the famed Gidleigh Park, joined in early 2016 and supervises the ultra-locally sourced food. There was the odd off-report this year – hopefully just a blip.
“Deserves all the accolades it gets” – a “luxurious” country house hotel, where “fine food is served with finesse in a lovely setting”, with beautiful views of the Preseli Hills. There’s a high emphasis on sustainability with sourcing within a 50-mile radius (including from the kitchen’s own garden and beehives), as well as a dedicated spring.
