Name: Twr Y Felin
Location: United Kingdom
The beautiful and unspoilt Pembrokeshire coast is an idyllic spot for a walking holiday, or just a relaxing break to chill out and do as little as possible! A former windmill, Twr y Felin is a unique luxury hotel situated just a ten-minute walk from the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and Caerfai Bay. With elegant, modern interiors, a fine dining restaurant and a stunning collection of modern art, this is a fabulous place to stay in one of Wales’ finest travel destinations, and it’s no surprise that it has attracted a substantial amount of attention in the press, including being featured in The Times – The Cool Hotel Guide. Twr y Felin is a little over a five hour drive from London via the M4. Alternatively, you can take the train from London Paddington to Haverfordwest (about four and a half hours journey time). Complimentary transfers are available from the station.
Originally a windmill tower built in 1806, there is a long and colourful history behind Twr y Felin. It has recently undergone a magnificent restoration to transform it into the luxury hotel it is today, with slick, contemporary décor and first rate accommodation and service. Art lovers will be in their element here, as the interior is adorned with more than 100 specially commissioned artworks created by twenty British and international artists and inspired by the local landscape. The hotel also boasts its own observatory, located within the windmill tower and affording breath taking 360 degree views of the St David’s Peninsula.
Twr y Felin offers nineteen spacious ensuite guest rooms and two suites, all of which are elegant and contemporary in design and feature original artwork inspired by the Pembrokeshire countryside. Guests can opt for super king double or twin beds, and will enjoy the highest quality bedlinen and Sealy mattresses. The Philip Starck bathrooms are well stocked with aromatherapy natural toiletries and luxurious towels. All guest rooms have complimentary Wi-Fi, satellite TV, DVD player, iPod dock, in-room fridge and tea and coffee making facilities. Room Tip – Ask for a room with a coastal view.
Restaurant and Bar
Blas Restaurant (the name means “taste” in Welsh) offers a sophisticated fine dining experience using the freshest seasonal, locally sourced produce, complemented by a wine list of more than twenty old world wines. If you’re partial to afternoon tea, the Oriel lounge is the place to be, while the Cornel Bar is a lovely, cosy spot to relax and enjoy the splendid array of paintings over a pre-dinner drink.
Those looking to enjoy walks along the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast Path – which boasts some of the most stunning views in Britain – will love the fact that this hotel is just a few minutes away. Other local attractions include St Davids Cathedral, the picturesque Caerfai Bay and Oriel y Parc National Park Visitor Centre and Gallery, which exhibits works from the National Museum Wales collections – just in case Twr y Felin’s collection whets your appetite for more art!
Due to the historic nature of the building, children under the age of twelve are not permitted to stay at Twr Y Felin.
A unique luxury hotel in a fascinating old building, Twr Y Felin is a great choice for a break on the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast.
