Spa & Leisure
Hurst House on the Marsh dates back to the 16th century, when it was a dairy farm, this Grade II listed building is hidden away in a secluded spot on the far South-Western coast of Wales. This property was once described as “legendary lazy little black-magical bedlam by the sea” by it’s former resident, the poet Dylan Thomas.
The original stonework and rustic features make an idyllic setting for this bijou spa. There is a rawness and simplicity that brings prospective and sheds light on our unnecessarily cluttered lifestyle. It is easy to forget the outside world and focus on what is important.
There are three treatment rooms and a menu full of heavenly therapies and specially designed programmes. Enjoy a swim in the tranquil pool and recline in the spa bath, there is even a relaxation space to rest in and a compact mirrored gym complete with treadmill, cross trainer, bike and rowing machine facilitates workouts for the health conscious.

Hotel & Accommodation
With just 17 rooms there is a sense of exclusivity and extravagance. These suites are gorgeous, with a charming fusion of vintage furniture, contemporary amenities and incredible vision. The spacious en suite bathrooms filled with REN goodies, the vast Frette dressed beds and brilliant finishing touches such as Roberts radios make this hotel a cut above the rest. If you seek the ultimate seclusion there is even a two story cottage.
The restaurant is fabulous. From your table you will see the working kitchen garden which delivers much of the food on your plate! The executive head chef Martin Blunos has two Michelin stars to his name, and he is soon to be helped by Dave Watts fresh from Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons.. The bar is located in the main house and proves a wonderful place to enjoy cocktails, fine wines or spirits. In warmer months there is a beautiful terrace area where they serve lunch, drinks, afternoon tea and dinners
