Just outside Llandrillo stands this modest Georgian house with a sympathetic extension employing local slate and stone. Once a shooting lodge belonging to the Dukes of Westminster, the house offers stunning views of the Vale of Edeyrnion and the slopes of the Berwyn Mountains beyond. Susan and Bryan Webb (he is the Michelin-starred chef) have been at the helm since 2002. In the dining room, Wedgwood blue with tall windows, you’ll find some of the very best cooking in Wales, from a seasonal menu that changes every day; there’s a superb, excellent value wine list too. The 12 idiosyncratic bedrooms are immaculate and of varying shapes and sizes, priced accordingly, and there is one elegant garden suite. After an outstanding breakfast, you can follow local walks into the Berwyns or stroll around the four acres of grounds, awash with daffodils in spring, and later linger over afternoon tea by the fire or on the veranda. A lovely, gentle place. Doubles from £190.
