Michelin-Starred Restaurants With Rooms in Wales

wales_tyddynllanHere’s yummy news from Wales for Road Trips Foodies headed to the United Kingdom. The country on Britain’s western flank has three new Michelin-Starred “Restaurants With Rooms”!

The Crown at Whitebrook maintained its Michelin Star rating for the fourth consecutive year, and was joined this year by Tyddyn Llan, Ynyshir Hall and The Walnut Tree.

The Crown at Whitebrook, Wales’ first “restaurant with rooms” (a lodging category developed in Wales), is celebrating its fourth year as a Michelin Star restaurant under the direction of Head Chef James Sommerin. Located near the Wye Valley’s Tintern Abbey of Wordsworth and Turner fame, the 10-room 17th-century auberge serves up French-influenced modern cuisine. The Crown at Whitebrook is a member of the Welsh Rarebits, a collection of 54 hotels.

Tyddyn Llan, another “restaurant with rooms” and member of the Welsh Rarebits Collection, earned its first Michelin star in 2010 (that’s one of their entrées in the photo, above, left). An elegant country house on the eastern tip of Snowdonia, native Welshman and chef-owner Bryan Webb has made Tyddyn Llan a culinary juggernaut with an ever-changing menu.

Another Welsh star was re-born in 2010 at the nine-room Ynyshir Hall, a Relais and Chateaux property once owned by Queen Victoria. Set among 14 acres in Mid Wales, it is said that Ynyshir Hall hotel is a place so quiet that birdsong is almost an intrusion. Chef is Shane Hughes.

The Walnut Tree, just outside of Abergavenny, returns to gastronomic glory this year under its new chef-owner Shaun Hill (who had two previous Michelin Star restaurants) and his partner William Griffiths. For those who don’t want to travel after dinner, the Walnut Tree Inn has two comfy cottages.
