Welsh history and its traditional literature is full of myths and legends and the Welsh landscape really does lend itself to truly picturing yourself back in those ancient times where the tales were passed down through generations of oral history.

The summer holidays are over but the lovely weather continues and now is a great time to sit outside in the still settled evenings and plan next year’s holiday! If a holiday for you is relaxing yet with the option of easily organised trips giving the kids a great time then you can’t go wrong with a traditional seaside holiday. Obviously I may be just a tad biased, but here in Wales we have nearly 900 miles of glorious coastline and so there really is a patch of coast to suit everybody!
