Our journey…..so far…..well we are certainly not the new kids on the block. The Welsh Rarebits Collection was born before Live Aid, a pint cost 80 pence and mortgage interest rates were 11%. We have a passion for real hotels and genuine hospitality, and curate a hand-picked collection of luxury independently owned hospitality businesses who helped us celebrate our 30th Anniversary in 2015.
The Welsh Rarebits Collection is no ordinary tourism marketing scheme. Our credibility is built upon ‘above and beyond’ quality and personal service, brilliant attention to detail and hands-on hosts who care. Membership is by a coveted invitation only. That’s not to say that we don’t want to be contacted by you, if you feel that your property would suit our collection, we’d love to hear all about it! Although the collection personifies variety and choice, certain common factors apply. Bespoke high standards and market leading hospitality are in the Rarebits DNA, separating the best from the rest.
We believe that the personality of the properties is just as important as the personality of its owners. The collection is a million miles away from the corporate mentality of ticking boxes and awarding stars but immersed in the art of ‘Croeso’ – Welcome.
We’ve evolved and grown over the years from what started life as an eclectic collection of traditional country houses to now include classy townhouses, boutique secluded hideaways, cosy traditional inns, famously foodie eateries, destination hotels and cool coastal boltholes complete with luxury spas.
The collection is now much more than the sum of its parts, in 1994 the collection developed with the launch of The Great Little Places Guide, a selection of Wales’ finest small hotels, inns, farmhouses, restaurant with rooms and guest houses.
Under the new ownership of hoteliers Chris Hutton and Mike Morgan who took over the reins in 2009, the brand has continued to grow and flourish.
In 2013 The Rare Hideaways Guide become the third addition to the Welsh Rarebits family representing the very best in the self-catered market from historic mansions to cosy miners’ cottages and tasteful barn conversions.
The Welsh Rarebits Collection is now recognised as the definitive collection of the best places to stay in Wales and beyond.
Have you stayed at a property recently that you think should be included in our guides? OR do you own or manage a property that your think should be considered for inclusion?
Membership to any of the Welsh Rarebits Collection brands is by invitation only. If we have not approached you in the past or if you are new owners please contact Joanna Williams to have an initial chat, introduce you to the Collection and then arrange a visit to your property.
Following our visit, and assuming we like each other and want to get further acquainted, you will then be formally invited into the family. We’ll need some beautiful images from you and we will create an original write up to present in our brochure and online.
If you’d like to learn more about becoming a part of The Welsh Rarebits Collection please get in touch, we love to talk and be given the opportunity to see your lovely property first hand.
