Hammet House

Wales is home to some of the UK’s most spectacular scenery; the Brecon Beacons, Snowdonia National Park and the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, to name just some of the areas and, consequently, the country has always been a draw for keen walkers.

Welsh Rarebits is a collection of 32 of the best hotels spread across the length and breadth of Wales and many provide walking notes for guests. Here are just 3 examples of walking breaks to enjoy this coming Easter…

The Falcondale is an imposing country mansion located within 14 acres of grounds at the head of a secluded valley near the university town of Lampeter in Mid Wales. As with all Welsh Rarebits members, the hotel offers personal service from owners Chris & Lisa Hutton and serves exquisite food in its restaurant which has two AA Rosettes. There are a number of walking options direct from the hotel including the popular 4-mile circular Longwood Walk, which includes a long section through woods which burst into carpets of wild bluebells and other flowers during the spring. The hotel provides maps and way-finding notes. A two night break over the Easter weekend costs from £150 pp (two sharing) on a B&B basis. Dogs welcome (£10 per night).

Tyddyn Llan is a small, luxurious ‘restaurant with rooms’ located in the village of Llandrillo on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park in north Wales and surrounded by the Berwyn Mountains. The 13-bedroomed property is owned by Michelin starred chef Bryan Webb and his wife Susan. There are many options of walks direct from the hotel including one of 7-miles that goes right over the top of the mountains to Pistyll Rhaeadr. Walking notes are available from the hotel and a two-night break over the Easter weekend costs from £250 pp (two sharing) on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis. Well-behaved dogs welcome (£10 per night).

Hammet House is a luxurious 14-bedroomed, boutique, country house hotel located in landscaped grounds on the River Teifi on the Pembrokeshire Ceredigion border in South Wales. Set in secluded grounds, Hammet House is a hidden escape that nestles discreetly amongst Pembrokeshire’s glorious coastline and countryside. There are numerous walks to be enjoyed in the area and notes and maps are provided. One of the most popular is the 4.5 mile Cardigan to Cilgerran walk which takes around 2 hours. The walk is through the Teifi Marshes, delightful woodland gorges and along the banks of the Teifi Estuary. A two-night break over the Easter weekend costs from £145 pp (two sharing) on a B&B basis.
