We all know how special Wales is but it’s always nice to read from someone such as the Telepgrah, how charming some of the hotels in Wales are…It is even nicer when they feature The Coed Y Mwstwr in their Top Ten Boutique Hotels in Wales.
Coed-Y-Mwstwr, sheathed in Welsh woodland, is a country house escape just outside of Bridgend. Easy to reach despite the rural escapism vibe, it’s a place that blends boutique with traditional – and is worth stopping off just for the sumptuous Sunday roasts. Modern warmth comes courtesy of Martin Hulbert (the man behind Chewton Glen’s treehouse suites). Look out for a quirky annealed copper leaf chandelier over curved seating, or the mantelpiece dotted with carved wooden mushrooms. Standard double rooms all balance period aesthetic – Victorian-esque wallpapers patterned with flora and fauna, dark-wood furniture – with comfortable touches such as oversized cushions and plush bedheads.
