Storm Callum

After our last post about ‘Storm Callum’ we encountered the highest record level of the River Teifi since records began – a huge six metres was recorded on Saturday 13th October…

Two of our members of the Hammet @ Castell Malgwyn team, Amanda and Sian, were personally affected by the flooding. With their homes being right next to the Teifi, the destruction that they both returned to on the Monday morning was phenomenal. Both of them are coping amazingly well, however they are both needing to be re-homed.

During the flooding, we had four guests, two dogs, five members of the team and three local residents and two cats marooned at the hotel. They managed to stay safe and warm with the log fire and cheese toasties with homemade soup (thanks to Cornel, the Head Chef) to share between them.

The hotel has been unaffected, thankfully, and we are back open for business. Any guests that are due to stay with us over the next few days should be aware that Llechryd bridge is currently closed. Please allow more time for travel and if you need any help with alternative routes then please give us a call on 01239 682 382.






Autumn

Autumn is officially here and with it brings ‘Storm Callum’. Some of our beautiful trees along our private drive are feeling the strain!

At the end of the lane, we welcome you with a roaring fire, hot chocolates and Welsh-roasted coffees to order, a gin flight special (three gins and a Fevertree tonic of your choice @ £13) and a two AA Rosette menu on offer most nights of the week. With over thirty gins stocking our Library Bar shelves, there will be plenty of choice; old favourites, something a little different and even a couple of our top-selling, Welsh gins.

New to the Art Room Menu is Cornel’s ‘Apple, White Chocolate Mousse, Blackberry and Mint’. We have reduced our menu to three options over the Autumn/Winter period as things start to wind down and life plays a slower pace in this corner of rural Pembrokeshire.
