Penrhiw Priory is a firm favourite and a leading luxury retreat for those looking for a present-day Hideaway, a soothing oasis in which to recharge the batteries away from the real world.
Set within 12 acres of grounds including a biodiversity meadow and woodland walkway, and just a stone’s throw from St Davids Cathedral, this distinguished former priory successfully melds cutting edge design, with easy comfort to create an enviably luxurious country bolt hole, is now available to book for exclusive use by up to 16 guests. It comes with the option of high end private dining, and the delicious breakfast using the best of the array of locally sourced produce, making it a sought-after venue for corporate and leisure guests alike. Private transfers to Penrhiw’s stable mate hotel Twr y Felin give easy access to some award-winning fine dining.
The eight bedrooms, a versatile mix of a grand suite and stylish doubles are serene and relaxing, carefully lit and comfortably stylish. It’s uncompromising luxury from start to finish, dreamy Sealy beds to 300-thread count linens. The Philippe Starck bathrooms with their pampering designer toiletries, sparkling chrome could grace the cover of any glossy design magazine. If you can tear yourself away from the elegant public rooms and step outside, you’re close to some of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path’s most exhilarating stretches. St Davids, the little city in the far west of Wales dusted by Celtic magic, has a magnetic quality. Pilgrims have been coming for centuries, artists are drawn by its light, landscapes and seascapes and now, thanks to Penrhiw, it accommodates groups of like-minded travellers looking for the same special experience.
Whilst you can stay here for just one night (see our Great Little Places guide), Penrhiw Prioryis the perfect base for enjoying a relaxing afternoon as well as for exploring Pembrokeshire’s must-see landmarks with all of your loved ones. It’s sister property to Roch Castle another Rare Hideaway with a difference.
