Crug Glâs

Hotel in Porthgain

Set on a big beef and cereal farm that has existed here since at least the 1100s – there's a reference to it in the 12th-century Black Book of St David's – this opulent country house offers rooms decked out with rich fabrics, ornate beds, enormous bathrooms and elegant period grandeur. Five rooms are in the main house, two in converted farm buildings.

There's also a top-notch restaurant. Crug Glâs is 3 miles south of Porthgain, off the A487.
