Walk from the nearby beach through beautiful countryside and reward yourself with a pint at this perfectly cosy pub. There’s a lawned beer garden, a roaring fire inside, and low, beamed ceilings. Hot tip: order the veggie Glamorganshire sausages (made from cheese and leeks).

This pub is nestled in the Preseli Hills in Pembrokeshire National Park, some of Wales’ most beautiful countryside. It retains a thoroughly Welsh charm, with Welsh spoken and an old fashioned, traditional feel. Their delicious menu offers juicy steaks, Sunday roasts, and faggots made the traditional farmhouse way.

This hotel-pub is full of character. As the training headquarters of the first successful Everest climbing expedition in 1953, it has a long history and remains a place for adventures to restore themselves. The food is praised for its heartiness and there’s a roaring fire.

You couldn’t ask for a more spectacular place to quench your thirst. Llanthony Priory is a small and quaint country inn, contrasting against the grandeur of the ruins of the original 12th-century Augustinian priory and the wild landscape in which it is found. You’ll find real ales are served in the vaulted under croft bar, homemade food in the dining area, and an open fire.
