Wolfscastle Country Hotel recently became only the second in Pembrokeshire to be awarded 4* Country House Hotel status, by Visit Wales.
One of a small number of family-owned hospitality businesses in Wales, the hotel is a former vicarage which was bought by current owner Andrew Stirling in 1976.
It is one of only 50 included in Welsh Rarebits, the Welsh Gold Collection of privately-owned hotels of distinction.
The 4* accolade followed a rigorous inspection by Visit Wales and, said Andrew: “The grading was the icing on the cake of our very successful 35th anniversary year.
“It’s really given us the impetus to go onwards and upwards for 2013, and we are very excited at a number of new initiatives we have planned, including a new brasserie extension at the front of the hotel which is currently under construction and should open in April.”
