Top 5 Farm Stay Holiday Cottages In North Wales

Spring has finally broken through after what can only be described as a very wet and cold Winter. In this neck of the woods, the arrival of Spring sees lots of daffodils and bluebells scattered everywhere and of course the gorgeous little lambs skipping across the fields. Personally, I think this is the best part of the farming year and getting involved with the lambing season is a lot of fun; especially for kids who love the chance to feed those lambs that are in need of a little extra helping hand. We have a number of cottages that are located on farms where the farmers are more than happy for you or your little ones to get involved. So if you are looking to get away this Easter with the family but haven’t book anywhere, you might be interested in one of our Top 5 farm stay holiday cottages in North Wales:   Pet Friendly…

Cottages for New Year Celebrations

I was told the other day that there are only 6 Saturdays left until Christmas and to be quite honest I was surprised….it doesn’t seem like much time at all especially when it concequently means that there are only 7 Saturdays left in 2015. It’s time to get your thinking caps on as to what to do for New Year. If you want to avoid the craziness of town centres over New Year, but still like the idea of being with as many friends and family as possible, then you might be interested in joining together and taking out one of our cottage groups. These are sets of cottages of all different sizes that are run by the same cottage owner and are situated either next door or very close to each other.

Two Bedroom Seaside Holiday Cottage | Cornel-Glyd

“We were over the moon with our stay at Cornel Glyd. The cottage was beautifully presented, well equipped, and although in a group setting we felt secluded and not overlooked. The short distance to the beach was perfect for our dogs, who enjoyed their holiday as much as we did. We hope as dog owners we gave a good account of ourselves also, and that we would be welcome to return to this holiday venue in the future.” – Karen Anderson, Elan Valley We came here with our two teenage boys last year and we are on the verge of booking again. We had such a nice time; we thought it was only fair that we share our experience you and some of the activities we got up to that made our stay so special. We were looking for somewhere to stay over the summer that was really close to nature and with this cottage being…
