On paper, Fairyhill country house hotel has an impressive amount going for it. An award-winning restaurant, a stylish and contemporary interior, and its slap bang amongst the rugged coastline and wild heathenland of the Gower Peninsula. But in person, it's so much better. The 18th-century Georgian country house is sweetly ringed by an impressive 24 acres of lawns, paddocks, lakes, waterfalls, ancient orchards and stunning woodlands, making it, quite simply, the epitome of tranquility. All that surrounds you is wildlife and nature, so relaxing here is as easy as breathing. When it comes to the rooms, meticulous attention is paid to the details: warm, natural colours, soft lighting, fluffy pillows, king-sized beds, the crispest Egyptian cotton sheets, and the latest technologies. In the summer, you can chill on the stunning south-facing terrace, overlooking the grounds, and in the winter you can roast in front of the open fire; or sit around the grand piano in the communal sitting room. But if all that still isn't enough, then perhaps their award-winning restaurant, which serves nothing but fresh, local Welsh produce will have you convinced.
Standard double £190–£280; Deluxe rooms £290–£380.
Open all year – except in January where they close for 3 weeks.
