The Mill at Glynhir
[Wednesday - 05/05/99] We decided on a charming little hotel called The Mill at Glynhir in North Ammanford to serve as our base of operations in Wales. Located about 18 miles southwest of Swansea, the Mill at Glynhir sets amid extensive wooded grounds on the south side of the Glynhir valley. The one-lane Welsh 'highway' which leads from Llandybie to the Mill ambled through lush, Welsh countryside and took us to our remotest locale. The quiet solitude of the place enhanced its appeal and it was, without doubt, the most comfortable place at which we stayed.
Run by an affable, elderly couple, this small hotel featured individually styled rooms scattered amongst various levels on the hillside. Each of us had our own paved balcony which overlooked the fields and you could hear the babble of the valley's stream. We spent each evening chatting with the Mill's owner in the lounge and each morning we were treated to a personalized breakfast.
The Mill at Glynhir began its career as a water-powered flour mill and dates back over 300 years. It was a welcome retreat from our daily excursions and the sleepy beauty of the place won us all over completely.
