Cresselly is a handsome and inviting old country house with a long history of hospitality and good living. The visitors’ book, going back a hundred years, records the regular arrivals and departures of aristocrats and gentry invited for country and sporting gatherings, and the same tradition of welcoming the guest is enthusiastically carried on today by Hugh Harrison-Allen. His ancestors have been here for 300 years, rebuilding their old house in 1769 in the graceful Georgian style, with the matching wings added a hundred years later by Lady Catherine Allen for grander entertaining.
Set in the heart of unspoilt Pembrokeshire countryside, your stay will be as comfortable as you could wish, whether relaxing in the spacious morning room (in its Wedgwood blue colours, reflecting a notable connection with that family), or in the beautiful drawing room with its delicate 1769 plaster ceiling.
The handsome stair leads to colourful, traditionally furnished bedrooms with large modern en-suite bathrooms. A full, locally-sourced Welsh breakfast will greet you in the morning in the portrait-lined dining room. Thereafter the day is yours, to explore the grounds, visit the world famous local castles and glorious St David’s cathedral, arrange to go riding, walk the famous coastal path or go shopping in the boutique-filled Narberth. In the evening you can walk down to Cresswell Quay, and enjoy the excellent real ale and stunning views at the waterside estate pub, the Cresselly Arms.
