Our room and en-suite were spacious and stylish, decorated in a contemporary 'beach hut' style. They were pristine and spotless. The breakfasts were delicious, featuring local produce and with plenty of choice. Our hosts Sarah and Derrick, were delightful and made us feel very welcome. We really enjoyed our week at Bwlchmelyn - it really was the perfect 'peaceful retreat'!
