The award-winning restaurant is reason alone to head straight to the country house hotel Fairyhill. In the heart of West Glamorgan but with the stunning Gower peninsula on your doorstep it’s no wonder guests flock to Fairyhill for a weekend away. They’ve been racking up those awards for years and have been named as one of the Top 10 restaurants outside London by the Telegraph. Praise indeed.
The menu is laughably reasonably at £35 for a 2-course dinner within a child-free zone is temptation enough but throwing in skate, bacon and caper terrine followed by locally reared duck with cauliflower couscous is downright ridiculous. They had us at bacon.
With only 8 rooms they’ve focussed on quality over quantity even changing the towels twice a day to ensure the ultimate fluffy towels at all times but we don’t expect you to spend much time in your bedroom. The local area is teeming with places to discover on endless local walks (Arthur’s stone and Three Cliffs Bay being the highlights) alongside boating, fishing and surfing excursions on the Gower beaches. If all else fails you have nearby Swansea for shopping.
