Overview A gorgeous stately home in the surrounds of the Welsh Cambrian mountains, Ynyshir Hall’s website boasts it is a place “so quiet birdsong is almost an intrusion,” and they’re not wrong.

(Actually, an RSPB bird sanctuary sits five minutes walk away, ideal if you fancy a spot of amateur ornithology, too).

An indulgent place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday city life, Ynyshir Hall was once owned by Queen Victoria and has maintained an aura of the regal since her era.

Eddie Izzard has stayed there, as has Richard Gere, and it is easy to see how it’s developed this A-lister clientele: there’s no

place finer to enjoy some pampering. Relax in the giant tubs with a glass of champagne and watch as the sun sets over the mountains opposite.

You’ll forgot the Tube in a second! wow factor The 12-course tasting menu at the multi award-winning restaurant is simply stunning, as it takes in a cornucopia of tastes, textures and combinations that will leave you awestruck.

Our favourite dish was the pea soup jelly that explodes in your mouth.

Heston, eat your heart out!
