Hartland Abbey

Only one mile from Hartland Quay, Hartland Abbey lies across a narrow, sheltered valley which winds its way to the spectacular Atlantic Coast. Within a designated ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ visitors may wander around the beautiful gardens and grounds which lead to the rocky cove. Peacocks and guinea fowl roam at will, whilst donkeys and Black Welsh Mountain sheep graze the Old Deer Park.

Hartland Abbey is the lived-in family home of the Stucley family. Although it was built in the 12th century, remaining as a monastery for 400 years and passing through the female line three times, it has never been sold. Consequently, it contains collections of pictures, furniture and porcelain which have accumulated over many generations. The story of the Abbey mirrors local and national history at every turn. It has a friendly and lived-in atmosphere, so often absent in many of our nation’s historic houses, a point continually remarked upon by those who visit us.

What can I say about Hoops Inn. It was my birthday in February and what a great stay we had. Our room 3 was stunning, The staff were delightful, the place was spotless, the food outstanding. Breakfast of pancakes with crispy bacon and syrup what a way to start a day out. The evening meal was made special for me with a birthday card and candles on our table from the staff it was a lovely touch which I wont forget. Thanks again we will be back for a second trip this time I shall bring our family. . Furneaux (Gower)
