This is a lovely place to stay. The location is great and the rooms are comfortable and nicely furnished. But it's big plus is attention to small detail - coffee making facilities in the room with real coffee, a log fire burning in the guest sitting room when we returned from dinner in St Briavels, and Welsh vegetarian sausages for breakfast having merely mentioned in passing that i was vegetarian.
The ONLY downside to this place is the drive which is not very suitable for cars with low suspension - ours bumped and scraped along it in a rather alarming way. It seems unfair to mention it since it's not the owners fault (the drive is mantained by someone else), but it's as well to be aware of it. The owners offered to pick us up at the end of the drive if we decided to park our car there - possibly we should have said yes!
We went out for dinner at the nearly George Inn in St Briavels. We had trouble getting a table so we would recommend making a reservation.
