Notes to Editors:
Nanteos is a country house that happens to be a hotel. The building sits on the site of a house that dated back to 11th century, which can still be found with front door and windows still intact, in the cellars below the house. The flooring dates back to the 11th century with flagstones worn from the steps of previous inhabitants.
The building of Nanteos as it is now known, began in 1739 under the direction of Thomas Powell, MP for Cardiganshire, funded by the wealth of his wife Mary Frederick, granddaughter of Sir John Frederick, Lord Mayor of London. In its heyday the estate covered 33,000 acres.
Now covering 30 acres, guests visit Nanteos for walking breaks and to explore the countryside and coastal scenery. The property is dog-friendly and there are a number of pet friendly rooms, located around the courtyard.
The house is full of antiques, original art and memories of past inhabitants such as the worn flag stones leading to the breakfast room. Many of the original features remain, including the original kitchen complete with the range, now the breakfast room.
The Grade II listed Stables is now the Mews House, a self-catering property.
Formally a Palladian Carriage house, the Mews House is situated across a small courtyard from the main hotel. It is fully equipped for self-catering purposes, and opens out onto a private courtyard. There are four luxury double bedrooms all with king size beds, one en-suite bathroom, and two separate bathrooms. The living area comprises of a spacious sitting area with CD / DVD player, flat screen TV, WiFi and dining table. The kitchen dining table can sit up to 10, and has its very own luxury fireplace.
