A great weekend for Wales with winning the rugby yesterday and lovely weather to celebrate St David's Day. If you don't know what the traditional day for the patron saint of Wales is all about then read on.
I must admit that I didn’t spend much time keeping up with the news when I was on holiday, but when I came back to the reality of everyday life I thought I had better take a quick look. The main headlines are never particularly joyful, and often these days downright scary, but there were a couple of stories of a lighter and far more positive nature.
In need of a little TLC and yearn for that extra little bit of luxury on your holiday? Well take a look at this!
As has already been established in some of my other posts, I am not always the most organised of people when it comes to holidays. I am sure that I can’t be the only one and so if you are still searching for some event inspiration over the February Half Term keep reading!
There have been a couple of good news stories this week that caught my attention. The expansion of Zip World (I really want to go) and a top award win for Swansea Indoor Market (I want to go again). If you didn't see them take a look now.
Some people may not believe it but there is plenty to do in Wales in February. Take a look at a couple of ideas I have come up with for great family days out over the Half Term.
Those of you of a romantic ilk may already be making preparations for St Valentine’s Day. But did you know that Wales has its own patron saint of couples and her day is celebrated tomorrow, 25 January.
Thanks to the commitment of heritage groups, government bodies, lottery grants and local community fund raising, two extensive projects on two castles situated at opposite ends of Cardigan Bay, are due to be completed this spring. This is the year to discover the impressive Harlech and Cardigan Castles.
The Six Nations Championship is nearly upon us. Ready yourself for the hard tackles, floating passes, stunning tries (hopefully!) and the emotional highs and lows of this historic Rugby Union tournament.
Positive stories on The Talyllyn Railway, Caernafon Castle and the medieval Bishop's Palace in Abergwili, Carmarthen all featured in the Welsh news this week. Read all about it......
Everyone loves a bargain and free entry to all of the seven National Museums of Wales is certainly that! Great days out and...whisper it...educational fun in beautiful, dramatic settings. From impressionist art to weaving, to slate quarrying, living history and industrial heritage you really are spoiled for choice!
So here we are in 2015! I've been thinking about organising our holiday and am leaning towards revisiting old haunts around Carmarthen but this time as a family and not students! Let us find you your perfect Welsh holiday and read on for details of how to win an off-season week in one of our cosy Pembrokeshire cottages!!
