Hurst House on the Marsh has its very own walled kitchen garden which supplies the restaurant with an abundance of year-round seasonal fruits, vegetables and salads.
The garden has recently received full organic accreditation which ensures that everything is grown in harmony with nature and it all tastes just as it should. The garden team liaise with the kitchen daily to finesse our menus according to ideal ripening times - Hurst House are firm advocates of seasonal eating and this ensures that everything on diners plates is deliciously fresh and perfectly ripe.
Fascinating tours of the kitchen garden with the expert team are available on request (and they may even involve some tasting!).
Hurst House is surrounded by acres of marshland, perfect for exploration on foot or by bike and we can recommend some particularly scenic routes. Local beaches are a short drive away, including the historic Pendine Sands where Malcolm Campbell set world land speed records in his famous Blue Bird cars in the 1920’s. The beautiful National Botanic Garden of Wales is just a few miles from nearby Carmarthen.
The hotel are also able to organise a host of activities for guests, from sea-fishing with a local expert to golfing, (from between 45 minutes to one hour by car), horse-racing and cycling. We are also happy to arrange family activities from trips to the Steam Rail Museum in nearby Carmarthen to personal horse-riding lessons with a local equestrian school. Try land yachting at Morfa Bay or simply stroll along the breathtaking three-river estuary near Laugharne Castle or Llansteffan. The nearby township of Laugharne is home to an annual literary and music festival and makes a perfect starting point for exploring West Wales.
