Just a few miles from two of the UK ’s most spectacular beaches – Rhossili and Three Cliffs Bay, yet nestling in a lush countryside setting, Fairyhill is a peaceful and luxury haven for city sorts seeking a break away from the bright lights.
Book to stay in one of the Georgian manor’s tasteful, well-appointed rooms, with views out across 24 acres of attractive parkland, and combine fantastic food with fresh air – getting out and about, walking the coastal path, sailing or even surfing are all available at this fantastic retreat.
Fairyhill’s been hailed as one of the UK ’s top ten restaurants outside London. It’s stylish without being starchy, and staff and owners are incredibly welcoming, knowledgeable about where all the produce is sourced and their extensive and award-winning wine list, meaning that within a few minutes you feel quite at home, thoroughly relaxed and content as you enjoy pre-dinner drinks in the stylish snug bar. Fairyhill is the perfect place for couples to come to unwind and spend quality private time together. Guests include many of the great and good from TV, theatre, sport and politics.
The kitchen, under the careful guidance of chef patron Paul Davies, sources as much produce as possible from the local area. The food is refined, innovative, unpretentious and elegant, showcasing the quality of top-notch ingredients, which in large parts has been gathered just hours before serving from Fairyhill’s own walled herb and vegetable garden. The Gower’s highly acclaimed salt marsh lamb comes from just a few miles away, as does the beef, sea bass, mackerel and lobster.
Locally gathered samphire’s often on the menu, accompanying tender and wonderful fish. Deserts too are made with produce from the area. They’re delicious and most definitely worth leaving room for.The wine list is one of the best in the country, and refreshingly many are offered by the glass.
An excellent restaurant and place to stay which we couldn’t recommend more highly.
