We are Ed and Lou Sykes, born and bred (respectively) in Pembrokeshire.

After living away in London for a number of years in 2003 we saw and fell in love with Llys Meddyg.
Our intention has always been to create somewhere that we’d like to stay and eat ourselves. Somewhere very comfortable but stylish in a down-to-earth way. Our location in Newport Pembrokeshire is at the heart of what we do. We feel privileged to live in such an area of outstanding natural beauty. We hope our guests can share our sense of awe and wonder for the coast and mountains that are our neighbours.

Llys Meddyg, meaning “Doctors Court” in Welsh, is a Grade II listed Georgian coaching house. 

The garden was once the site of a prosperous market garden and in post war times Llys Meddyg sent dahlias and roses via train to be sold at Covent Garden Market in London. Some of the old cold frame bases are still standing and are now used for growing fresh herbs for the kitchen.

The oldest part of the building is the Cellar Bar, which was originally a 1500’s Masons Arms.
