I don’t get down to Cardiff and its coastal area very often these days so I persuaded a good friend of mine to write about how she spent her time there recently. After reading this I have a real hankering to re-visit our wonderful capital!
The Snowdonia National Park was established 63 years ago today, and aren't we so pleased that it was! This week the town of Llanberis at the foot of Snowdon played host to an outdoor tourism conference which served as a great reminder of what a fantastic place the National Park is for all different kind of holidays - so whether your idea of a fun strenuous activity is mountain climbing or shopping do read on.
The BBC reported this week on an app, developed in conjunction with the National Library of Wales which house the original manuscripts, aimed at helping people learn the Welsh National Anthem. I for one need all the help I can get so I will certainly be giving it a go!
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but Wales really does have a view for everyone! With so many to choose from I can't decide on my absolute favourite, but how about you? What is your favourite view?
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!
Hi! My name’s Amy and I’ve worked at Wales Cottage Holidays for over 5 years now. I know this is meant to be Ginnie’s Journal but I wanted to let you all know about a fantastic day out I had in North Wales at The welsh Mountain Zoo with my family recently.
The NATO conference in South Wales has shone a spotlight on our beautiful country this week and has highlighted what a fantastic destination we are. Although the Welsh news has been dominated by coverage of the summit there has been other good news for one of our main attractions with The National Botanic Garden of Wales being granted an injection of funds to help develop and ambitious new project!
Green Energy – a vast subject and potentially a contentious one! Whatever side of the debate you are on it is difficult to deny the overwhelming scientific evidence that fossil fuels are not going to last for ever. There seems to be a pressing a need to develop effective, yet environmentally friendly, methods of creating energy.
Wales has more castles per head than anywhere else in the world - what's your favourite? Read on for my top 5 (ish)!
One of the things we enjoy doing most as a family is spending the day in Borth and Ynyslas, on the Mid Wales coast. My little one just loves running along the promenade and skimming stones (or at least trying to!) at Borth and then making the short drive to the dunes and huge sandy beach at Ynyslas.
Wales does draw many people in and I was delighted when my oldest friend also made a permanent move to this wonderful country. We met when we were seven years old and haven’t been able to get away from each other since!
With busy lives, and living about a 3 hour drive apart, we don’t always get the opportunity to meet up as often as we would like but a few weeks ago we spent a glorious day in Hay on Wye. I must say that book or antique enthusiasts could spends days (and a lot of money if so inclined!) in this picturesque town.
