We got married at fairyhill on the 14.06.19. From the second I walked through the doors of fairy hill I fell in love with the place! I hadn’t even booked anything at that point and the staff already couldn’t do enough for us! The venue is incredible but the staff make it even more so! I can’t speak highly enough of everyone there and everything they did for us! Thank you for making our day so special and for making us feel like the most important people in the world for that day! Highly recommend fairy hill as a wedding venue! Thank you for everything xxxxx More...

My wife Sam Brookfield and I had our wonderful wedding at Fairy Hill. From the very first instance of choosing this amazing venue, we were made to feel special. The continued visits to the venue, an experience was delivered to us every time. This began with the initial walk through the venue, meetings with the wedding team Greg Chesters & Jo-Anne Purnell-Rees on how we wanted our wedding, helpful recommendations and advice plus the amazing food and wine tasting experience, where we also got to meet like-minded future Brides and Grooms Moving on to the actual day of the wedding where do we start. On arriving at the venue we were greeted and treated like Royalty, it felt like every staff member knew us personally and this was also the general feel from our wedding guests too. The venue was breathtaking and it's fair to say our entire wedding party were totally wowed. The ceremony room with the panoramic venues looking at to the forestry was spectacular and set the perfect position for us both at the bottom of the aisle. It really was magical and truly felt like a fairy tale. We could continue to run through the whole wedding but wouldn't want to spoil the magic for anyone else. To all the team at Fairyhill. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you all did for us. More...

What an amazing venue with incredible staff. Choose Fairyhill for your wedding and there is no doubt that it will be the perfect day for you and all your guests. Thank you all at Fairyhill! What you did on our day was above and beyond our expectations. The comments we have had from guests is overwhelming and showed just how dedicated you were to ensuring that everyone enjoyed themselves and everyone’s needs were catered for without fuss. Our guests have raved about the food provided… “the best food [they had] ever at a wedding”; “first wedding we have never been hungry at”; “I am still craving that goats cheese starter”… appetites were certainly fully catered for! Comments about how helpful and friendly and organised the Fairyhill staff had been were things we’d not considered at all but were so proud to have received. Behind the scenes, the kitchen, bar and all the other functions we wouldn’t have thought about, ensured that everyone had a fantastic day. Every guest has reported something from the wedding which was ‘the best’ they had experienced which has made us very happy and we cannot thank you enough. We needn’t have been nervous about the day going as planned because you were faultless hosts from start to finish. Our only wish is that every wedding we are invited to in the future is at Fairyhill.

Fairyhill gave us the wedding of our dreams. Jo, Shakira and the team attended to our every wish and made us feel like royalty on the day. You won’t find a better venue in South Wales, probably in the UK. Our wedding was a little while ago but we are still getting lots of compliments from our guests, who had a wonderful day. We highly recommend Fairyhill to any couple, especially those who want to get married in the Gower. The staff take the time to get to know you and truly understand how you envisage your day. They had the contacts and the energy to get things done and at short notice, such as a last minute sweet cart and menu changes. 5 star service. You won’t be disappointed. We only wish we could do it all again. Steph & Graeme xx More...

We had the most magical weekend at Fairyhill in December 2018. They have a wonderful team, who helped make our wedding as special as it was. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel at home - they take such pride in what they do and always sought to go above and beyond. From the beautiful setting, to the delicious food, we can't recommend Fairyhill enough. This place will remain with us forever and we so wish we could do it all over again! More...

Where do I start... our wedding day was 06.12.18 and from the moment I stepped inside (November 2017) I knew this was where I wanted to become Mrs Leach, where I knew our guest's would be in the best hands and have as much of a memorable day and night as we would. From the breath taking views and scenery to the beauty of the historic house and the newly built chic k room's. We stayed the night before at cerrig glan and the night of at fairyhill. Nothing was too much trouble and the day was just as I had envisaged 12 months prior. Everything went to plan and if there was a problem I didn't know it. The food is perfection and the staff who I now call friends are amazing! They took my vision, made it a reality and exceeded my expectations. I mean its not everyday you have a wine named after you (Bex block ) Thank you again for the most perfect day and memories we'll treasure forever xoxo The Leach's More...

Sam & Katie 31/08/18 Thank you to you all, just can’t believe how perfect you made it for us, felt like a dream. After always wanting a destination wedding, travelling to and nearly booking Croatia and Portugal something wasn’t right, someone mentioned fairyhill so we came down to see. We only stepped through the door and knew at that moment that was our wedding venue even before the amazing k room. It is unbelievably beautiful, so amazing but so different to all other venues around wales, nowhere else compares. All of your staff are amazing, so kind and genuine and still so professional. The food is the best we have ever tasted, outstanding, all our guests were wowed by every dish and canapé. All the little inbetweeners were perfect too. Also amazing wines and drinks to complement the food. The rooms are just gorgeous, bridal suite looks like something you see on a bond film, stunning. The best wedding venue ever. Just want to do it over and over again. Thank you all so much. Xxx More...

From the moment we first stepped through the door at Fairyhill we knew we had found the venue of our dreams Throughout the planning process we attended on a number of occassions, meeting many of the team, including owner Nigel, who were all, each time, as equally welcoming as the first. We would like to thank our wedding coordinator Jo - and Millie, for all of your help towards achieving the very best from our day and for always being available to answer any questions, you are both such an asset to the team Our Wedding took place on Friday 12th October, which happened to be the weekend that Storm Callum hit The night before I felt slightly disheartened that this may put a 'dampener on our day' - but I could not have been more wrong!! With all fireplaces roaring and candles adorning every room the venue looked BEAUTIFUL and the atmosphere inside was so cosy & relaxed - the k room ooked spectacular and we hardly noticed our uninvited guest, 'Callum', outside. Between the storm our photographers, @TheWeddingGuys managed to capture some incredible outside shots, including one in the pouring rain - proving that the venue truly is perfect in all weathers. The food throughout our stay; breakfast/wedding breakfast/evening buffet - was absolutely incredible with all guests catered for and everyone thoroughly enjoyed - massive compliments to the chef from us all. Our day ran perfectly from start to finish thanks to Jo, Millie, Dan & the team - who all remained so kind and attentive throughout. Our guests, my husband and I were treated incredibly with nothing being too much trouble - and for that we are sincerely grateful. To all future brides and grooms considering this venue - we cannot recommend a Fairyhill Wedding enough - you certainly won't be disappointed!! We couldn't have wished for a more magical venue or wonderful team to have hosted the most happiest day of our lives ❤ Many Thanks to you All - Rachel & James Pearce. More...

WOW, where on earth do we start? We got married here on the 17th March shortly after the opening of the new 'Kaleidoscope' room and it was incredible. The staff are so incredibly hardworking, kind and attentive and certainly treated us like absolute VIPs and do certainly know how to put on a good wedding! The ceremony and wedding breakfast room was absolutely breathtaking with outstanding views and grounds. The food was out of this world and there were no issues catering for special dietary requirements; our vegan and vegetarian guests were equally thrilled with their meals. We really don't know how the food was still so delicious catering for 110 guests; the best arancini that we have ever tasted, the beef literally melted in our mouths and the white chocolate cheesecake was also the best we've ever had, the amuse bouche and champagne sorbet courses were an excellent additional treat! A HUGE HUGE thank you to all of the fantastic team at Fairyhill from the bottom of our hearts for providing us with the most amazing day imaginable!! More...

Hi guys. I'm hoping to get married here or fairy hill. They are beautiful venues. And I went there today to put down a deposit but i couldn't get to them because of the floods. The water had risen over my car bonnet. I still love the place but what I'm worried about is that if I book and the weather is the same and I can't get there because of the floods. Has anyone got married here and experienced this?
If anyone could give me info that would be amazing xxx

A very nice place as a wedding venue. Our accommodation was showing some wear and tear, so maybe due an update. Unfortunately the WI-FI was not working, which was a bit annoying as it is a mobile notspot, so unable to let family know that we had arrived safely.

Had afternoon tea with my mum and sister. Lovely place, warm welcome. However the tea was another story. The food looked lovely they brought the sandwiches out with the cakes. You normally have the sandwiches first then the cakes. The waitress didn't tell us what anything was so we had to guess by sight and smell. We had stainless steal teapot, hot water pot and milk jug which looked awful with the white find bone china cups and saucers with didn't match.It was all a bit of a squash and a squeeze with my sister sitting right by the door so she had a draft everytime someone opened a door behind her. Having had afternoon tea at The Bath Priory, The Dorchester London, The Grove Hertfordshire, I've a lot to compare it too. The waitress didn't pour our first cup of tea either. When my sister made the original booking she mentioned she had a nut allergy so could they make sure nothing had nuts in please. They huffed and puffed but eventually said ok. Not difficult to give us white and brown bread instead of bread with nuts in! She also asked if one of the cakes could have a little candle in as it was my mum's birthday but this never happened. She even asked if there was an extra cost and was told no it's fine we'll organise it.When we wanted to pay we couldn't find anyone to pay. No waitress, bar staff or anyone for a good 15 minutes. I've given the rating "very good" because the food was lovely and the greeting we had was lovely too. It's just those "finishing touches" that were lacking. We were shown by the man who greeted us initially where the extension would go and it seems well under way. Maybe a spa would be good too? You could have spa weekends, spa days and incorporate it with staying at the hotel. The young man who greeted us was lovely, he showed us where to go and pulled our chairs for us. Would I go back? Yes but not for afternoon tea, just lunch. More...

Staff were very friendly and chatty. Afternoon tea was lush. Would have liked to of had an explanation of our afternoon tea as there were a few things I've never tried before. Atmosphere was calm and relaxing. The guy on the bar was a true gentleman. Very accomadating as I have a nut allergy. A tad disappointed no candle appeared on a cake for my Mum. However, the cakes were tiny. x More...

Went for my moters 65th. Very pleasant and attentive staff, very nice meal, soothing mello ambience for a close family sunday lunch, lovely accoustic backgound music. I could have sat all afternoon in one of the lounges sipping a drink reading a paper, getting involved in a conversation and glancing out occasionaly to the grounds occasionally getting up to walk the paths and letting my worries flow from my body. If this is what retirement brings I am looking forward. More...

We celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary here last night absolutely beautiful food, great service couldn't fault it.. had 3 courses each and each course was lush! The fire alarm did go off as we were eating but I think the chef was obviously cooking up a storm with those beautiful steaks�� (best we have had by far I must say) but even the fire alarm going off didn't spoil it for us! Lovely weather to sit out on the terrace..felt very welcome. thank you for a very pleasant evening xx More...

We were lucky enough to be booked for a wedding at Oldwalls Gower for a second time. Oldwalls has everything you need. Accommodation, marquee space, white piano, fireworks, resident DJ, parking and gardens. The one thing we remember the most about Oldwalls is that the food was amazing. It was as if we were on a 5 star cruise (I know I worked on them). Staff were all friendly and willing to help. There was a general happy vibe amongst everyone. I had to pull the band away from the food, drinks seemed reasonably priced. Don't just take our word for it look at how many weddings get booked at Oldwalls! We would recommend Oldwalls Gower to anyone looking to get married in the Gower. More...

We sat in the beautiful lounge and we're greeted with menus, prossecco and canapés. We sat for three courses in the dining room where we ate, drank and laughed to our hearts content. The scallops were my personal favourite. Our glasses were never empty and we felt completely pampered by the staff. We can't wait to visit again! Thank you so much for a perfect stay. More...

I would just like to express my thanks for your hospitality on Friday 17th February when my Fiance and I stayed overnight. You can feel the history as soon as you walk into Fairyhill and it has the right combination of traditional and modern decor. The staff were lovely and extremely hospitable - special thanks to James for greeting us and serving us at the bar and to Carrie (?) for popping down to Oldwalls just to get me a bottle of our Wedding Wine (Big Top from Cheers in The Mumbles) as it is the nicest wine I've tasted in a long time! The appetisers at the bar were delicious, especially the deep-fried cockles - I could eat these by the bucketload! As for our dinner. Well, I was blown away! I have dined at many fine hotels & restaurants (usually through business trips) and this was the best 3 course meal I have ever had! Often, you find one or two faults with at least one of the courses, but in my opinion, each course was flawless and the portion sizes perfect! Highly Recommended!!! More...

The enhanced new look and updating is warm, classy and inviting. The staff were beautifully turned out and friendly and professional. The food as always was first class. This venue is going to be difficult to beat for an upmarket wedding or if you just want a lovely country retreat to have a break. Well done the Oldwalls team. You have done a great job. More...

My wife and I recently enjoyed a two course meal in the restaurant. The service was great and the food exceeded expectations. Prior to the meal we had a drink in the newly refurbished lounge/bar area, which was tastefully decorated with a relaxing atmosphere. We would definitely recommend and we look forward to returning soon. More...

We have been regulars at Fairy Hill for many years and had been concerned that the 'experience 'would not be so good due to the change of ownership and refurbishment. We need not have worried, the 'experience' has been improved. We called in for a drink ,last Tuesday but ended up having a relaxing and delicious lunch in the improved lounge area. My husbands steak sandwich delivered on taste and I enjoyed a large pot of flavoursome mussels. Returning on Christmas Day for lunch,from the moment we arrived everything was faultless. The staff friendly and attentive and all of the courses delicious. Light parsnip and apple soup was followed by a delicate lobster ravioli. The gin sorbet cleansed the palate before the main event. My husband opted for the roast beef,plentiful and nicely pink. I chose the venison again cooked perfectly. We couldn't manage all of the well cooked accompanying vegetables and finally opted to have a generous cheeseboard in the comfort of the new bar area. Altogether it was a very positive experience,we look forward to enjoying the new Fairyhill experience for many years to come. Give it a try and enjoy. More...

Very enjoyable. Food was delightful, service exemplary, setting fabulous, just a shame it was a little quiet. I expected it to be busier, especially given the value for money that the set menu is ! We will definitely be going back A+ More...

Faultless. A beautiful building with extensive, peaceful grounds to explore if you wish. The staff are welcoming and always helpful. The food is top notch. It's not cheap so for us it was a way of celebrating a special birthday and it was a perfect way of doing so. More...

I would like to thank Fairyhill for your friendly and professional service this week. From the moment I arrived (the evening before my wedding) I felt comfortable - everything is spotless, the food is incredible and the personal touches make you feel at home. I will always have fond memories of walking through the garden areas which are a little peace of heaven! It was the perfect tranquil place to get ready on the wedding wedding, the staff could not have been more accommodating. I wish you every success for the future and I look forward to a return visit with my husband x More...

'Fairyhill' is a small but delightful country house-style hotel near the beautiful Gower coast in South Wales. It is reached via a very narrow road, something which gives it the feel of a very isolated place. It has 8 bedrooms and extensive grounds. There's a small bar near the entrance and a somewhat larger lounge next to it. There's also a dining room which, by my estimation, has places for around 40-50 people. I had Sunday lunch there recently with 3 members of my family. We all enjoyed the experience very much. Prior to our meal, we had drinks in the beautifully appointed and very comfortably furnished and attractively decorated lounge. The restaurant is divided into 2 small spaces: a sitting-room with 5 or 6 tables, most for no more than 3-4 people; and an annex with the same number of tables, some of which are designed for large groups. Indeed, there was a family of around 10 people dining there at the same time as we were. I began with Jerusalem artichoke soup, followed by roast sirloin of locally-sourced beef with Yorkshire pudding and all the trimmings. For dessert, I had 'Affogato', two scoops of praline ice cream topped with a shot of espresso and some sherry. Everything was delicious, including the very reasonably-priced bottle of Merlot that we drank with our food. The 3 other members of my family had different dishes from me (and from each other). They too thought their meals were excellent. We finished with coffee and petits fours in the lounge. Service was very friendly. If I have a quibble it is that the waiting staff had not memorised who had ordered which dish when they brought our food to the table. I accept that that is a very minor fault (particularly as they were otherwise very efficient). It didn't cause any confusion or hamper our enjoyment of the meal in any way but it was a bit of a surprise in an establishment of such quality as 'Fairyhill'. Prices are very reasonable indeed. The set-price Sunday lunch is £27.50pp for 3 courses. A post-prandial coffee costs £4.50pp (including the wonderful petits fours). The restaurant is open for dinner as well as lunch and the hotel also serves afternoon tea to non-residents. There are various one-off events throughout the year, e.g. wine-tasting lunches and gourmet dinner evenings. I loved 'Fairyhill' and would certainly like to return there. 9/10 More...

Had a lovely Sunday lunch today and they accommodated my father in law extremely well as he has a gluten allergy. Excellent for that special meal out. The only things, albeit small was that they collected the plates before everyone had finished their deserts (my biggest annoyance) and there were no tongs for the sugar cubes. Small niggles but wouldn't expect this in such a high standard restaurant. More...

From the moment we arrived to the last wave as we left everything was fabulous. Paul & Andrew are excellent hosts, blending the right amount of friendliness with outstanding service. All of the staff went out of their way to ensure that we had a great stay and if ever anyone criticises young people I will simply point them in the direction of Fairyhill - the young members of the team delivered service beyond their years. So add all of that with a restaurant menu that made the very best of local produce, comfortable, clean, well appointed rooms, a great wine list, and the most relaxing environment, all set in beautiful gardens in the midst of The Gower, this really was a 5 star experience worth every penny. Thank you to all and I hope to visit again More...

We had Christmas dinner here in 2013. The food was fabulous but felt the decor wasn't very festive. There wasn't a tree, the fire wasn't lot, no garland and outside the beautiful building stood two star trees. Personally they should have been two small beautiful real trees dressed accordingly. I suppose I went for the food, but it was Christmas Day and felt a bit flat More...
