A Pembrokeshire country hotel with 14 self-catering cottages has been sold to a property development company from West Wales.
Gellifawr hotel and cottages occupies 12 acres of land in the Preselly Hills near Fishguard along the Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park. It lies within ‘Bluestone Country' where the blocks that make up Stonehenge were sourced.
The three-star hotel is made up of a stone farmhouse, dairy and outbuildings that date back to the late 1700s and were joined in 1861.
It provides seven individual en-suite bedrooms, a 35-seat bar and restaurant and a function room that will seat 120 guests. A self-contained wing contains the three-bedroom owners' accommodation.
The four-star cottages, which range from one to three bedrooms, were created from stone outbuildings set around a landscaped courtyard which incorporates seating areas with barbecues.
Outside features include a trade garden area, a car park, three stocked trout pools, two fields and a waterfall that flows into the Gwaun River
New owner Gwyn Hamer of Grayston Properties intends to run the property along the same lines as before but will make use of it to accommodate meeting with his business clients.
The Bristol office of Christie + Co sold the property off a guide price of £1.5m on behalf of Mac and Maggie Smith.
