We needed an overnight break on the way into deepest Wales, found Plas Uchaf on Alastair Sawday’s website and were encouraged by Trip Advisor reviews. We were impressed at first sight. Located high on a green hillside and approached by a winding drive – a pretty and impressive Queen Anne house.
We were made very welcome and shown to our “garden room” – actually a well converted ex-stable(?) standing alone and apart from the house (see picture). Comfortable, and perfect for us and our dog – fitted out with twin beds and a settee and all necessary facilities (though I don’t think a hair dryer was in the room).
In the evening we enjoyed a while in the pleasant lounge with its books and well stocked “honesty bar”, and then had a good quality and reasonably priced evening meal (under £20 for 3 courses – well cooked and presented – I recommend the perfectly kept local cheeses).
Breakfast consisted of a generous buffet of fruit dishes, juices, yogurt, muesli and croissant, as well as all the usual cereals. While we enjoyed all this our host prepared our full Welsh breakfast. Again, the quality was high and the local bacon and sausage were particularly good (and I’m pretty choosy).
We were fortunate to have lovely weather during our brief stay and were able to sit out and soak up views of the surrounding hills and fields.
Guests are free to use the extensive garden areas which are mainly grass, including a croquet area, but are rather let down by the borders which are crying out for many hours of TLC – not easy as the gardens were laid out when such a house had many full time staff!! But don’t let that put you off – you will enjoy Plas Uchaf, eat well, and be well looked after.
