We celebrate different, but we really love unique. Parc-Le-Breos is, first and foremost, a gorgeous historic house in the country, but the gardens and grounds are unique and have a story to tell.
We celebrate different, but we really love unique. Parc-Le-Breos is, first and foremost, a gorgeous historic house in the country, but the gardens and grounds are unique and have a story to tell. The Edwards family have painstakingly restored much of the seventy acres of the estate to their spectacular former glory, moving ten thousand tons of soil in the process.
There’s seven acres of formal gardens, trout lakes, striped lawns, hidden valleys, a kitchen garden and even a Neolithic scheduled monument, to explore. Its meticulously maintained, you won’t even need your walking boots.
The house has also not been missed, and has equally had attention lavished on it, with a full makeover undertaken a couple of years ago. It’s warm, cosy even, and doesn’t stand on ceremony, a vibe echoed by the friendly team, who look after their guests with authentic care. There are seventeen bedrooms, but for that special night, choose the indulgent suite overlooking the terrace, which includes a double monsoon shower, a deep tub, and a luxurious separate lounge. You could even hole up in the achingly romantic, self-catering Quabs cabin, deep in the dappled shade of the ancient woods. ( find out more from our sister brand, the Hideaways Rarebits )
The high-ceilinged dining room has a relaxed easy-going vibe, the cooking is generous yet carefully considered, making great use of Gower’s natural larder. The prized salt-marsh lamb is a must during its short season. You’ll find fresh wildflowers throughout, pitch pine flooring, a focal point wood burning stove and huge bay windows. Breakfast on the terrace to the backdrop of birdsong is the stuff of dreams.
Just a short drive from vibrant Swansea, the famed Gower peninsula, is more than just a pretty face. It was designated as the UK’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty back in 1956 and has much to offer. Wide open surfing beaches, endless sand dune potters, bracing coastal walking and rare wildlife habitat. It is the great outdoors personified. Uncommon excellence.
