The Experience

Nicol and Dewi have worked wonders breathing new life into this stone built former farmhouse. A steel and glass entrance leads through to a modern bar where flagstones, exposed stonework and beams mingle with contemporary sofas, designer bar stools and sleek lighting. In summer, sup Purple Moose’s Snowdonia Ale on the terrace and gaze up at lofty Cadair Idris – a giant’s seat indeed. Food from the open kitchen comes with impeccable local credentials and the char-grill compliments the meats perfectly. What could be more local than Conwy mussels, leeks and cream followed by confit leg of Welsh lamb, rosemary and honey gravy, potatoes and seasonal vegetables? There are great Sunday roasts too, light bites, and afternoon teas. Upstairs the comfort factor scales new heights as natural stone, beams and antiques blend with a crisp modernity; there are beds for dreaming in and mountain views through windows. Gorgeous bathrooms, with Thierry Mugler lotions and thick robes, soothe those who have stretched their muscles in the surrounding hills. A 15-minute drive brings you to delightful Barmouth and the coast.

The Cross Foxes is perfectly placed to explore the surrounding Welsh countryside - you can be in the mountains or on the beach in about 20 minutes by car. The rooms are fresh and have been sympathetically updated to incorporate some of the traditional features of the building and use of traditional slate in the shower rooms. The staff are friendly and welcoming.
