Top choice bed and breakfast in Harlech
Image by

A model B&B in an art-bedecked former boarding school, Maelgwyn has interesting hosts, delicious breakfasts and five elegant rooms stocked with DVD players and tea-making facilities (ask for one of the three with sea views – they're definitely worth it). Bridget and Derek can also help arrange birdwatching trips and fungus forays. Full marks.
