We recently spent 4 enchanting nights at Ramsey House. From the first moment we arrived until the moment we left we had exceptionally attentive,but not obtrusive, care from Suzanne and Shaun. This level of care actually started long before we arrived when Suzanne graciously went above and beyond in answering questions about the area when I was planning the trip. The room (Jasmine) was very, very comfortable, with nice down duvets and lots of little extras including robes, chocolate by the bedside and lovely soaps etc. Everything was spotlessly clean. Shower was great with lots of hot water. The lounge was very comfortable and was a great place to curl up and read in the afternoon after a walk. The rooms are very quiet too. It was full when we were there and if we hadn't seen the guests for breakfast we might have thought we were alone. We did 2 long walks right from the door; one to Porth Clais and then east to Solva and then to Newgale. Beautiful scenery and we had good weather with no rain that made it even better. The next day we went to Skomer Island and had a great day fueled by the great packed breakfast that Shaun did up for us because we needed such an early start. The final hiking day we also did as a circle right from the house on Suzanne's recommendation and it was the best day yet. We went to Porth Clais again but then went the opposite way to Whitesands and then circled back into St Davids and finished it off with the Bishop's Place and the cathedral. Perfect day great scenery, perfect sunny day and all wrapped up with a really well presented tour round the palace. Suzanne is a great ambassador for the area and we enjoyed the conversations and the suggestions she made.
We ate 3 nights at Ramsey House and every aspect of every meal was amazing , not only taste but also presentation. Shaun obviously loves to cook and does a fantastic job. It was like having your own personal Michelin 3 star chef to cook for you each night. We had a lovely corn fed chicken breast with roasted mushrooms and asparagus, really amazing roast duck breast with a lovely reduction sauce and peaches served over spiced red cabbage, and hake served with a lemon mustard cream sauce. Starters were equally amazing and included an amazing fresh pea and ham soup, carrot and roast fennel soup, a duck salad that looked too good to eat and a goat cheese with quince jelly and preserved fruit salad. My husband raved about the chocolates dessert plate and my favorite of all the evenings was a blood orange sorbet served in a golden cage of spun sugar. Writing this is making me hungry. Shaun and Suzanne have a lovely place that they should be proud of and they compliment each others skills to present a truly perfect holiday package. If we are ever back in St Davids I would not even consider eating or staying anywhere else !!!
