44 - Top 50 UK & Ireland Stay and Play St Pierre

St Pierre's Old Course has seen much top-class golfing action over the years, including scores of European Tour events and the 1996 Solheim Cup. It's essentially a parkland layout with a moorland feel on its upper holes, from where there are splendid views of the Old Severn Bridge. The hotel centres round an old manor house, with the pretty church of St Peter next door. Welsh-inspired cuisine comes to the fore in Morgans restaurant.
