Plas Dinas is unmistakably someone’s home. The house belongs to the Armstrong-Joneses (a family whose best-known member is Lord Snowdon, former husband of Princess Margaret) but is now run by your friendly hosts Marco and Neil Soames-Baines who have brought new life - and fresh comforts - to this fine old building.
We’ve listed Gellifawr under Newport since you’ve probably not heard of its true location in the Gwaun Valley. Although just a few miles from the fashionable resort of Newport, the Gwaun Valley, hidden in the folds of the Preseli Hills, is a secret haven of peace, tranquillity and wildlife.
We’d need far more than a few hundred words to do this place full justice. Its location alone is worth a complete guide book, distilling as it does everything that is special about south Pembrokeshire – its cliffs, beaches, headlands, ponds, bays, walks and wildlife.
This collection is the result of thousands of miles of travel the length and breadth of Wales to seek out the very best small hotels, inns, farmhouses, restaurants with rooms and guest houses. GLPs are the kind of places in which we like to stay. We hope that you get as much pleasure from discovering them as we did.
Since Great Little Places was launched over 20 years ago it has established a reputation in Britain and worldwide as the collection of small and friendly places to stay in Wales. Small is beautiful – but such places, unlike the best hotels (which are listed in almost every guidebook), are much m re difficult to find. Locating small establishments that really stand out from the huge choice is much more of a challenge – but it’s what GLP is all about.
