We hosted our Wedding weekend at Porthmawr & couldn't have made a better decision. The location is amazing & Geoff & Linda allowed us the freedom to make sure that the day was individual, but were incredibly supportive & helpful too. They made sure the day ran smoothly so that we could relax & enjoy. Thank you!!!

We've just returned from a mini honeymoon staying in the self catering 'cottage' - we had originally booked a room in the main house but were later informed that the main house had been fully booked so were offered the cottage at a discounted rate. The owners are extremely welcoming and greeted us with a bottle of fizzy and strawberries...

We stayed in their 2 bedroom annex which was nicely furnished and spacious. Very convenient locatoin as you can walk out through the back wall into the High Street and so leave your car in their drive. It is possible to take your breakfast in the main house if you wish at extra cost which we did once, but did...

2 night stay as self catering travelling with colleagues for a business trip. The grounds are really nicely maintained and clean. They even have a couple of pot bellied pigs and chickens etc which really make it a true rural experience!

We had a faultless three day experience at Porthmawr in September 2011 having booked in May 2011. Every aspect of this venue is top class, the staff know when to be discrete and when to be visible. The rooms are immaculately clean and the grounds are beautiful. Attention to detail made our daughter's wedding day absolutely fantastic. Every guest commented...

We held our wedding here at the beginning of July - what am amazing venue and the owners (Linda and Geoff) could not do enough to help us out.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Porthmawr is a splendid Regency mansion. Tucked away behind 15th century castellated walls the house and grounds are utterly private and peaceful with stunning mountain views, and ample parking. Plush furnishings, antiques and quirky modern artwork sit side by side in its tall-ceilinged rooms. Relax and enjoy a glass of wine on the terrace on a summers eve or infront of the open fire on a cold winter's night. ... more   less
