The grounds

7 acres of gardens are yours to explore at Hammet @ Castell Malgywn.  They have some magnificent ancient trees, many of which have tree preservation orders.  The front lawn steps down on to the croquet lawn that was created for Lily Gower in the late 1800s.  The remains of the Victorian carriage drive to Cilgerran church head off in to the woods which are now privately owned.  The side lawn leads away from the house to the South with a gentle upward slope.

From the side lawn, a track leads back towards the river Teifi, a slate chipped path takes you down to the river's edge, from where you can walk alongside the river to the neighbouring village of Cilgerran, and climb up a steep set of steps to the spectacular ruins of Cilgerran Castle which is a National trust property open to visitors.  This spectacular walk is very popular amongst our guests and takes approximately 50 minutes each way.

Along the way can be seen the remains of the slate mines, operated by the Gower family who owned Hammet @ Castell Malgywn from 1824 to 1948.  The path does become very muddy when there has been rain, so please wear suitable footwear.

Squirrels can be spotted easily throughout the grounds, careful observers may also find otters on the river bank and leaping salmon in the water.

Quirky Hotel for food lovers

GA, Somerset, stayed: August 2016

We had a very relaxing stay in this hotel with somewhat quirky interior design which we loved - but may not be to others' taste of course. The inventive food and service was excellent but worth studying the menu before you book as whilst the cooking style was what we went for, it may not suit all. Cooked breakfasts were excellent with superb local ingredients. There were one or two minor issues with the state of decor/maintenance in our room/bathroom which needed attention, but not enough to impact on our stay. Would recommend talking to the hotel before booking to be sure the rooms, ambience and food style is what you really want.
