Last week I wrote about our trip to Llandudno that we had taken a while back. We had four days away in North Wales and made the most of things. We actually stayed in Conwy, in a lovely hotel I have stayed at three times now.  All the rooms are decorated in their own indivual style and the beds are huge! We had gone to Llandudno to eat o our first evening at The Cottage Loaf and had gone back to Llandudno the following day to have a walk around and afternoon tea.  We also went up to the top… View Post

Whilst I was in Llandudno a little while back I went for dinner at the Cottage Loaf pub in Lllandudno. I had eaten lunch here before when I had visited Llandudno in Summer 2016 and we had found the pub by sheer fluke down a side street off the high street.  The lunch was delicious and on visiting Llandudno again I instantly suggested we ate here. For starters I had the Chicken, Pork and Cranberry Terrine served with Apple Chutney and Crispy French Toast.  I will not lie, I could easily have ate two of these.  The terrine was amzing… View Post

This afternoon tea was taken back in March before I was ill for my birthday.  It seems such a long time ago now but this afternoon tea was rather delicious and I really would love to go back and have another tea here at the Castle Hotel in Conwy. Firstly the tea, it was a lovely English breakfast tea which is my favourite.  The sandwiches were out of this world.  I had egg, roast beef and cheese.  The beef just melted in my mouth and the bread was so fresh and tasty.  The cheese which was accompanied by a lovely… View Post

I love Wales and if I’m honest Welsh beaches are as hot as I can stand. I don’t do heat. But these are my 5 favourite beaches. All in North Wales Tywyn The Welsh seaside town that I always holidayed at and I actually lived there for 3 years. Beautiful and sandy. Averdovey Just a few miles south from Tywyn. Again a lovely sandy beach. Barmouth The popular Welsh holiday town again has a lovely sandy beach. Cricceith  Travelling further north you reach the quaint town of Cricceith with the castle looking down upon the beach. Such a stunning view… View Post

Late last year on a sunny October morning we went on a day trip along the Cambrian coast to the seaside town of Criccieth. Criccieth is a beautiful seaside town with 2 lovely beaches which are separated by 13th Century Castle perched high on a rocky peninsula overlooking Tremadog Bay in North Wales. We walked from the train station down to the south beach, a walk of around 10 minutes down to the sea front.  Although it was October the skies were blue and there wasn’t really much wind.  We paid our entry fee to the castle and started the climb… View Post

This time last year whilst still living in Wales we had a spare day with nothing to do and I really wanted to not waste the day and hang around at home. Off on the train we went up the Cambrian coast to visit Portmeirion; a specially built Italian inspired village nestled in beautiful woodland on the coast. It is so beautiful there. We chose a dry but slightly cloudy day but still had such a lovely time walking around. All the buildings are painted in such calming Mediterranean colours  with statutes and beautiful gardens. We had a beautiful lunch if… View Post

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to have a weekend away in North Wales and took a trip to the summit of the Great Orme overlooking Llandudno.  Having lived in Wales for 3 years until recently and having always taken holidays there my whole life I was pleased to go back and visit somewhere I really love.  I have been lucky enough to have visited this area of North Wales before and always find the scenery so stunning. We stayed over night in Conwy and traveled a few miles the next day over the estuary to Llandudno.  Llandudno… View Post
