An elegant Italian-style country house in rural Wales, with an acclaimed restaurant – includes breakfast, a massage discount and optional seven-course tasting dinner

A 19th-century Italianate-style country house isn’t the first thing you’d expect to be peeking out of a forested valley in the foothills of Mid Wales’ Cambrian Mountains. That’s exactly what you get though, with the impressive Falcondale Hotel & Restaurant in Lampeter.

The well-heeled Harford family performed an Italian job on the Falcondale estate in 1859 to bring about its stunning facade, before the current owners injected a healthy dose of modernity and top-notch hotel service. Recommended by Condé Nast Johansens and The Good Hotel Guide and packing a two AA Rosette-awarded restaurant and regal views of the Teifi Valley, this elegant sanctuary is the perfect "Welsh rarebit" from which to explore the luscious countryside of Ceredigion and nearby Pembrokeshire.

Just 15 minutes from Cardigan Bay, the hotel also became a finalist as the best restaurant to eat in Wales in the country's National Tourism Awards, thanks to a public vote. The Falcondale Hotel & Restaurant has scored a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
