Cresselly is a handsome and inviting old country house with a long history of hospitality and good living. The visitors' book, going back a hundred years, records the regular arrivals and departures of aristocrats and gentry invited for country and sporting gatherings, and the same tradition of welcoming the guest is enthusiastically carried on today by Hugh Harrison-Allen. His ancestors have been here for 300 years, rebuilding their old house in 1769 in the graceful Georgian style, with the matching wings added a hundred years later by Lady Catherine Allen for grander entertaining. Set in the heart of unspoilt Pembrokeshire countryside, your stay will be as comfortable as you could wish, whether relaxing in the spacious morning room (in its Wedgwood blue colours, reflecting a notable connection with that family), or in the beautiful drawing room with its delicate 1769 plaster ceiling. The handsome stair leads to colourful, traditionally furnished bedrooms with large modern en-suite bathrooms. A full, locally-sourced Welsh breakfast will greet you in the morning in the portrait-lined dining room. Thereafter the day is yours, to explore the grounds, visit the world famous local castles and glorious St David's cathedral, arrange to go riding, walk the famous coastal path or go shopping in the boutique-filled Narberth. In the evening you can walk down to Cresswell Quay, and enjoy the excellent real ale and stunning views at the waterside estate pub, the Cresselly Arms

We didn’t stay here but we visited it as an attraction. It is a very interesting home made even more interesting by the engaging commentary by Hugh Harrison Allen. Not at all stuffy and full of amusing anecdotes about his ancestors and local life.

We had a fantastic two day stay at Cresselly House. High & Ros are wonderful hosts, who drum up a superb breakfast - with really good coffee and home made bread. All the other produce is local too. The rooms are all good, we opted for the Red Room which was huge, with an equally huge new adjoining bathroom, and very comfortable bed. The views and surrounding countryside are beautiful and Hugh can provide you with a great list of quality places to eat in the evenings - highly recommended. The WiFi is really good too!! We will stay again!

We found this property via the Wolsey Lodge website and it has to be one of the best on their site. The house is full of history and Hugh the owner is more than happy to tell you about it. We stayed in the Wedgewood room which we gather has recently been refurbished. It enjoys a large king size bed (American King) and an enormous bathroom.with both a bath and walk in shower. The location of Cresselly House is ideal for exploring Pembrokeshire and if like us you have good weather while you are there it makes you wonder why anyone would want to be anywhere else.

Upon arrival we were welcomed by our delightful host - Hugh. Absolutely nothing was too much effort from the outset. Our Red Room was huge and full of character. Hugh joined us for a welcoming drink in the Morning Room and shared fascinating stories of his family history going back generations. Breakfast is highly recommended - Hugh's speciality bread is the best! We ended our short stay meeting many locals at the Cressely Arms Pub enjoying the exclusive local brewed ale. Highly recommended - we will be back!

We have stayed at Cresselly House for two nights in 2015. My wife wanted to go back for her birthday. Our previous visit had been fabulous but I thought things often are not as good as one remembers. This visit was not just as good, it was better! Hugh welcomed us as if we were returning family and immediately took us to the sitting room where we had drinks and caught up in the lovely surroundings. All three evenings we had complementary drinks, with nibbles, at six. Hugh organised taxis and restaurant bookings for all three nights. Our bathroom was wonderfully modern but set in classic surroundings with a separate bath and huge shower. The bathroom was originally Hugh's bedroom and our bedroom was originally the family nursery. Both were huge and had lovely watercolours of local scenes painted by one of the family in the 1890's One day it rained and after a morning exploring by car we watched the Grand Prix Qualifiers in the sitting room. Afterwards I retired for a lie down whilst Yvonne remained downstairs and read the papers. Ros, Hugh's wife, cooks a better breakfast than I have ever eaten anywhere else. The eggs are from down the road and taste like eggs used to 50 years ago and sitting at the amazing dining table is an experience. I could go on forever but look at the web-site. Hugh and Ros are proper people. Visit Cresselly House for a great experience. Value for money is unbelievable. It is not a hotel, it is a home.
