In peaceful hills on the border with Wales, a welcoming country-house hotel with lovely rooms and scrumptious food

Read guest comments

In a blissful valley lost to the world, a small country house that sparkles on the side of a peaceful hill. This is one of those lovely places where guests return again and again, mostly due to Audrey and Miles, who run a very happy ship. Outside, fields tumble down to a stream that marks the border with Wales. Daffodils erupt in spring, the lawns are scattered with deckchairs in summer, paths lead into the hills for fine walking. Lovely interiors are just the ticket: Laura Ashley wallpaper and an open fire in the quirky bar; colourful art and super food in the pretty restaurant; the daily papers and the odd chaise longue in the sitting room. Bedrooms hit the spot. Most have the view, one has a French sleigh bed, a couple have jacuzzi baths for two. Four lovely rooms outside are dog-friendly and have their own patios. You get warm colours, crisp linen, pretty fabrics and sparkling bathrooms. After a day in the hills come back for a good dinner, perhaps wild mushroom risotto, pan-fried wood pigeon, hot chocolate fondant with vanilla ice-cream. Offa's Dyke and Powis Castle are close.

"3 adults booked for two nights DBB at short notice. Rooms in main hotel nicely furnished and very comfortable. Dinners excellent and very good cooked breakfast. Decided to stay for four more nights. Dinner menu changed every nifgt and plenty of choice - well worth the two AA rosettes. Owners very visible making sure guests had everything they needed and also kept staff on their toes. Would stay there again and recommend to friends"
