Enjoy a G&T in the pretty south-facing garden; sometimes you’ll have it to yourselves. You’re in the heart of Britain’s tiniest city with private lawns, brimming borders and views over the cathedral roof to the skyline.
A former farmhouse, there’s plenty of room, and games to play, round the wood-burner in the living room and at the big wooden refectory table in the kitchen, so everybody can help cook. There’s a quiet study if you fancy escaping with a book.
Hop on a ferry to Ramsey Island from three miles down the road, walk a lazy mile to explore caves and rock pools at Caerfai Bay; surfers will head for Whitesands Bay just below and you can hire kayaks at Abereiddi’s Blue Lagoon. There’s a downstairs shower room for de-sanding and a barbecue to fire up in the garden.
