This 17th-century inn about 160 miles northwest of London was refurbished in 2001, but it still retains an inviting, lived-in feel.

Young Welsh couple Ed and Louise Sykes returned to their homeland after a seven-year stint in London to transform a former carriage house and stable in the coastal town of Newport into a shabby-chic six-room inn and restaurant.

A number of Welsh country inns are beginning to lure visitors with sophisticated food that rivals the quality of the bucolic views.
