This was a celebration for our son's 30 th birthday with a large group of friends and family. All the accommodation was taken for the 27 in the party. The house was amazing with beautiful grounds and the main lounge and dining rooms were very elegant but also comfortable, warm and welcoming. The kitchen was exceptionally well equipped making it...

We have just returned from a fantastic weekend at Porthmawr Country House. We hired the whole house including the adjoining Cottage and Apartments. Geoff was a great host and put on a brilliant formal sit-down meal on the Saturday night with excellent local Welsh lamb. The house felt incredibly warm and welcoming with large well equipped rooms. A perfect weekend... More

Peter & Thelma from the New Forest. We have just returned from a Friday to Monday celebration of our Golden Wedding at this venue. We hired all the accommodation on offer and there were 25 in our party: including our six children and their spouses and our ten grandchildren. The home team at Porthmawr catered for our breakfasts, the celebration... More

Friends Jen & Alex got married in November 2014. They were able to book the whole country house for the weekend for guests to stop over. The staff were fantastic especially with the two ladies with young babies. The seating area was quite small & a bit cramped in places but we made the most of it. The meal was... More

The views and location is lovely. Great for photographs. The owner was very rude and unprofessional. There are lots of uneven surfaces and unsafe steps. The accommodation areas are not the best and some beds are very uncomfortable.

We hosted our Daughter's wedding here (Toni to Paul) on April 12th weekend. It was Idyllic and perfect. We hired the whole house, function room and apartments for 4 days. Pre wedding we visited the house several times, and Geoff (the owner) was available to answer many questions and was a fountain of knowledge about the house's history and also... More

We stayed here over New Year. As there were 28 of us we rented the entire premises including the apartment and gatehouse. While the house itself was large and very pretty on closer inspection you realise that it is all a bit tired. As a self catered house there was a distinct lack of standard equipment within the house i.e.... More

This is a much over due review (as our wedding was in September) but we had the weekend of our lives at Porthmawr Country House! From the moment we booked (Jan 2013) right through to the wedding (28th Sept) Geoff and Linda were always on hand to go through bits and bobs and accommodate our many visits to see the... More

Having read the poor review posted prior to mine I must admit to feeling a little nervous about our booking which was for the whole house and cottage for a family reunion in December 2013. I was wrong to worry as I cannot state how impressed we have all been with Porth Mawr and can only assume that the writer... More

We tend to visit this area once or twice per year to visit family and go climbing in the mountains. Anyhow, we decided to give Porthmawr a try. Anyhow, we stayed the ground floor flat, next to the old lodge and large gates. We were shown into the lodge by the owner who appeared to be quite a nice guy.... More
