We stayed 2 mid-week nights in the Berllan Glyn Grande first floor suite. Beautiful furnishings, cozy enclosed porch with direct access to the front porch and heated pool. Excellent breakfasts served on the porch for a relaxing start to the day. Quiet, secluded property, but easy drive into Granville or Newark. Bobbi & Jeff are marvelous hosts and ensure their motto of "Relaxation Redefined" comes true. Wish we could have stayed longer & look forward to a return visit. Liz and Howard

From the moment we drove onto the property, we felt relaxed. The outside world is put on hold and the idyllic setting surrounds you. We were immediately greeted by Wrigley, one of the two friendliest family dogs you could ever encounter. Then Bobbi escorted us to the rockers on the front porch where we “checked in”. And so our 2 days in the country began. After Bobbi gave us a tour of their magnificently decorated home, we unpacked and headed for the pool. Wine and cheese were served for our happy hour. Then we headed out for dinner on the town. Our mornings began with coffee in our rockers on the front porch, followed by Jeff’s amazing breakfasts both days on the porch. After a round of golf at the picturesque Dennison golf club at Granville, it was back to the pool. All of this was interspersed with stimulating conversations with Bobbi and Jeff, two of the most interesting and engaging people you could ever meet. Our only complaint is that they need more staff so we could have spent more time with them. Thank you Bobbi & Jeff for a most memorable midweek respite. Dan & Nancy

My wife and I came to the Welsh Hills Inn for a two day getaway. We had an amazing stay here! Bobbie and Jeff are exemplary in making our stay carefree. Jeff cooked breakfast and Bobbie set up and hosted, always making sure our coffee cup was filled. The rooms are fresh and clean, filled with comfortable furnishings. The bed was loaded with pillows and beautiful linens. The bathroom had everything. The outside had plenty to do with the heated pool to the Bocce Ball court to darts or just sitting poolside playing Scrabble. The peace and quiet of the property was intoxicating! The porch is a must to relax with a glass of wine on their many rockers into the night. Rigley and Ellie, the resident dogs were every bit helpers in making our stay the best and are the friendliest dogs to be around! Dinner in town is an easy 15 minute ride and the Outlets were a 45 minute ride. We are planning a stay in the fall to see the leaves changing!

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Inn. Bobbi and Jeff welcomed us with a magnificent tour and made us feel right at home. Relaxing on the porch in the quiet country setting and eating the delicious breakfast were two of the many highlights of our trip. We also enjoyed the hot tub, food, and fire place. We will absolutely be going back for another stay. Very well deserving of Trip Advisors number one rating!
