The
Experience

This beautifully refurbished country-house hotel sits high on the hill with long views over Carmarthen Bay. Outside, there’s a small courtyard, then five acres of lawns and woodland, where bluebells run riot in spring. Inside, chic interiors come with cool colours, painted panelling, parquet flooring and the odd Doric column. There’s an elegant bar in deep charcoal with fine art on the walls, then a big drawing room with an open fire and huge sea views. Big windows in the main house flood the rooms with light, while doors in the sunroom open onto a gravelled terrace, where you can read the papers, dig into afternoon tea, or fall asleep in the sun. Bedrooms have a stunning new look: off-white walls, beautiful beds, crisp white linen, elegant fabrics. Big rooms in the main house have vast windows to frame the view, all have sublime white marble bathrooms. You eat in style in the restaurant – period colours, grand chandelier – perhaps steamed clams with lemon and ginger, chicken with chestnuts and a pear tarte tatin, a dark chocolate tort with pistachio ice cream. There’s fine coastal walking, too.

Reviews

Stayed here for one night last week on our way back to the ferry in Pembroke. Absolutely loved this hotel, though our stay was short it was very comfortable, we were in the coach house and the bed was super comfortable and the bath really long and great for a good soak. Dinner was delicious, breakfast let them down a little bit as I felt the granola/museli should have been homemade and maybe some nice breads instead of just toast or pastries as the bread at dinner was delicious, very small picky things but on the whole would highly recommend.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Saskia Boissevain

  • Penally Abbey Hotel is a fascinating building full of history and beautiful architecture. The doorways and windows boast strawberry hill gothic design and the original fireplaces and high ceilings only add to the history that is prominent throughout.
  • Penally Abbey is located in the UKs only coastal national park which passes 58 beaches and 14 harbours. Many of the beaches have won worldwide awards for beauty and sea quality.
  • We are a family run hotel which means we aim to create a relaxed, informal atmosphere paired with professional, friendly staff. For us, it is the perfect combination for guests looking for understated luxury.
  • The hotel is situated on the hill in the picturesque village of Penally with views out across the sand dunes towards the Irish sea and Caldey island.
  • The beach is only a gentle 10 minute stroll through the sand dunes from the hotel. Guests can leave their car and wander to the sea shore for a paddle at any time of the day. The ultimate coastal escape.
  • We have two beautiful spaniels and love welcoming other dogs to stay in our beautiful corner of Wales. There is a vast number of dog friendly places and beaches in Pembrokeshire.
