Nourishment for the body, brain and biosphere is offered by Art and Accommodation at Haroldston House. This stylish new B&B on Pembrokeshire’s St David’s Peninsula offers the best of local produce, artwork and a carbon-neutral footprint – with electric car-charging point and discounts for those arriving by public transport. The owners, architects Maria Jones and Ian McDonald, hope that it is a B&B with a difference in this stunning corner of West Wales.
Architects/Owners: Maria Jones and Ian McDonald
As well as putting guests up for the night, it also puts art on the walls: the best of local work – in a county that prides itself on being home to more artists than any other in Wales – as well as pieces collected from the owners’ work-related sojourns in India and central Europe. The result is an eclectic mix of the local and the international: from Brangwyn to Banksy; from Sutherland to Starck; from Pembrokeshire photographer Chris Neale to conceptual artist Christo, whose wrapped Reichstag print is a memento of Ian and Maria’s time working in newly reunified Berlin, where they met.
