The Drawing Room

The Drawing Room

****

In the two tiny sage-green front rooms of The Drawing Room, a crackling fire, traditional antiques and porcelain trinkets lend an elegant French atmosphere to this Welsh gem. A brass bedpan stuffed with new slippers suggests this is a place intended to relax. And the food is out of this world at this husband-and-wife-run establishment: she makes the pastries, breads and starters; he tends to the main courses. The bedrooms are très Elle Deco: Venetian glass, stylish fabrics, contemporary chintz wallpaper, roll-top baths.

Highlights:

  • Award-winning gourmet restaurant

  • Five-star style, B&B prices

  • Intimate, with only three bedrooms

Also need to know:

Non-smoking throughout. They have a lovely private dining area so it's popular with triple-daters, who book all three bedrooms and then enjoy their own private dinner party.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

Boy, were we glad to get to the Drawing Room. It was 11.30pm, and for much of the five-hour Friday-night drive from London, the car had been the unhappy recipient of a severe thrashing by a nasty horizontal rain. Just as Eskimos are said to have a hundred words to describe types of snow, we’d figured out at least ten for rain. The last hour’s drive was through a mix of number seven (heavy, ‘blatting’, wipers on full speed) and number two (roof-drumming fat droplets). So far, a romantic jaunt with my girlfriend to Wales’s stunning Wye Valley region had left us tired, grumpy and mean-spirited.
