An All Year Holiday
Many visitors, when staying in the summer, often
ask us what it's like in the spring, autumn and winter.
We always say the same - why not give it a try and come
see us in the winter or spring. Quite a number of them
do, and many of them return.
We have to be honest and say that
each season brings its own unique
In fact, we do have certain guests who only come
at particular times of the year according to their
Some guests love to arrive in the
spring, when everything feels fresh and
The trees and flowers are about to bloom or
indeed, are in full bloom when the display of their
embryonic colour is breathtaking.
The lambs in the fields are bountiful and the
'prancing and dancing' is an indication of their 'new
innocence'; it's a sight to behold.
Many visitors, after spending a long period at
home during the winter months, can't wait to experience
the newness that this time
of year never fails to deliver on.
Summer is an extremely busy
time for us, and we never expect anything
This year, 2006 we had
a beautifully hot period (one of
the hottest days on record) and many of our guests fled to the
beaches at Barmouth, Aberdovey and other coastal
One particlar guest
arrived back at the house in the early evening, after having
spent the day on the beach at Aberdovey. He was mesmerised by
the quality of the beach and the water.

Autumn is for those
who love to wrap up and go for long walks on the beach,

Both Meirion and I can give you some terrific
routes to take and what about taking a packed a lunch and
flask of tea/coffee; what could be easier?
We can even provide a picnic basket if you
forget to bring yours with you. Autumn is a time to sit
back and reflect on your busy summer period and prepare
for the onslaught of Christmas.
Winter can be a long and
depressing time for most of us; that's why we have quite a
number of guest who like to break it up with a short
holiday in the colder months.
Obviously, the days are not as long as they are
in the summer but there is plenty to do

to see things differently. Many of the toursit
attractions have fewer visitors and so it can be more
