Escape this Autumn to complete seclusion at Llangoed Hall which dates back to 560AD. Located in the picturesque Wye Valley, this enviable countryside is ideal for long walks and is just nine miles from the world-famous book town of Hay-on-Wye. The hotel sits on the banks of the River Wye with rolling hills enticing fishing, walking and mountain biking.
Llangoed Hall is nestled in seventeen acres of gardens and parkland and includes a vegetable and fruit garden and three egg houses – chicken, duck and quail. Head chef Nick Brodie and his talented team place great emphasis on creating dishes that make use of the finest local Welsh produce such as Welsh Black Beef and local Radnorshire Lamb, all flavoured with herbs picked from the hotel’s kitchen gardens. All menus are seasonal. Earlier this year Llangoed Hall was awarded ‘Best Restaurant 2014’ at the Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence.
According to the late Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, the celebrated Welsh Architect, there appears to have been a house on the site since 560AD. It is said that the first Welsh Parliament was held here. More recently Llangoed Hall was owned by Sir Bernard Ashley husband of Laura Ashley and today the 23 bedroom hotel features many of the Ashley family personal photographs. In fact, the first ever garment Laura Ashley made is displayed at the hotel and one of the suites features her original wallpaper and furniture. For art lovers, Llangoed Hall provides an art gallery inside a hotel. Sir Bernard Ashley’s personal collection of sketches by American artist James McNeil Whistler are displayed across the hotel. Llangoed Hall also features works by Herman Dudley Murphy and Augustus John. The hotel was recognised by the AA achieving ‘ AA Hotel of the Year 2013/2014 Wales’.
