The Waun Wyllt Inn
Waun Wyllt’s literal translation from the Welsh is ‘Wild Moor’, although you couldn’t get further from the truth with this newly revitalised and welcoming Inn. If stylish interiors with a sympathetic nod to a rich history are your thing we’d urge you to grab a short break here as the Waun has been given a new lease of life.
Accurate and skilful cooking, driven by carefully sourced local ingredients adds to the easy comfort and warmth, but ‘Croeso’ is part of the DNA here. Local Brothers Anthony and Delwyn Jones have invested heavily, not just financially but emotionally, that elusive feel-good factor is here in spades, and the heritage of this century’s old building has been respectfully preserved.
Think wood burning stoves, squashy wing backed armchairs, cosy welsh blankets and exposed 18th century stonework. The Sylen Hills are on the doorstep, and a long walk or cycle ride to blow the cobwebs away, full of jackpot views, deserves a long soak followed by a pint in ‘The Cwtsh’ with the tempting menu. Afternoon Tea is served Monday to Saturday, and the on trend vintage china adds to the deferential look back to the Inn’s rich past.
Four of the five bedrooms are in the restored Lodge, set slightly back from the buzz of the main building, and offer privacy and space. The fashionable interiors are modern with softening touches of tradition.
There’s a light and airy celebration space which is well sought after by those locals in the know for marking special occasions in style, and works particularly well for corporate events and meetings as it’s ideally located for nearby Swansea.
