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!!
I was lucky enough to have a great Christmas with family and friends and I hope you all did too. But now the turkey is eaten, the stock of chocolate coins is running low and it is time to start thinking about New Year's Resolutions and for me, in 2015, this means castles!
A decorated and twinkling tree in my living room and being able to spend time this week with my daughter and her very excited school friends has really helped me to get in the mood for Christmas. Hope you are feeling this way too and lets spread some Christmas cheer!
What is your favourite Christmas tradition? What makes it feel like Christmas more than anything else for you? Customs do change and evolve down the generations but how about indulging in some festive traditions that were popular in Wales hundreds of years ago and can still be enjoyed today!
Christmas really does seem to come earlier every year and the pressure of expectations for the season ever greater. Wouldn't it be great to escape from it all, just for a bit, and get back to what really matters this advent season.
After spending many happy days along the North Wales Coast when I was young, as my mum and my grandparents did before me, I would like to continue this tradition with my daughter. Where better place to start than Llandudno!
It's a great feeling when you make a positive unexpected discovery and this happened to me not long ago when I went out for the afternoon in Llandrindod Wells, a town that I had not previously personally experienced but would now definitely return to!
