On-site open kitchen and dining space
Y holt is your barista-quality coffee every morning and your locally sourced breakfast to eat in or have delivered to your door. It is your space to use during the day to plan your adventures using our free wifi and enjoying our home-baked cakes and goodies. In the evening it becomes a place to share stories of the day’s discoveries and triumphs with an evening meal and a relaxed atmosphere.
The building itself was a collection of workshops that have been brought together and carefully crafted to create an exceptional space for you to use during your stay.
Y holt also opens publicly from time to time, hosting music evenings and a supper club where all are welcome.
Food at Y holt
Our wood-fired oven is at the heart of what we do at Y holt. Every week we have a traditional Welsh bake day when we bake bread, cakes and goodies for our guests and visitors.
We regularly open Y holt for a street-food inspired takeaway evening which has become popular with both Plas y Wern guests and locals alike. Nothing else cooks like the falling heat of our wood-fired oven, so our slow-cooked fast-food does not disappoint! We are well practiced now with our own take on Southern States flavours and other flavours from around the world.
Greek gyros pitas filled with slow roasted lamb from the neighbouring field marinated in home grown herbs
Locally reared pulled pork with home baked bun and spicy ‘slaw
Long and slow cooked beef brisket with shoestring fries
Choice of sides including smokey beans, ‘slaw and charred corn
Y holt also serves as our on-site bistro, where we serve relaxed food in comfortable, informal surroundings, taking inspiration from traditional Welsh cuisine as well as ambitious flavours from around the world.
Our deli counter is open when we are in the kitchen, serving a selection of products we like to use in our cooking, including local cheeses and charcuterie, home-cooked cold meats and our favourite homemade tartlets which are perfect for lunches and light evening meals.
Try your hand at using the wood-fired oven, from lighting and managing the fire, to cooking. Talk to Alex to arrange.
