Have reached a satisfying milestone this week in that the north Wales holiday cottage reviews are all complete, although I’m still not even halfway through the total, with south Wales having 5 more properties that the north. I am now working through the reviews at a much faster rate than when I started so hopefully the remainder won’t take as long.
Despite the poor weather I had a great time in snowdonia and Anglesey doing the final 4 properties and yet again they were some cottages with real character in remarkable locations. Pick of the bunch had to be egryn hall, which was renovated by the trust in the mid noughties. It is a house of two halves, with some beautiful medieval features and a newer Victorian addition with traditional parlour. It is a place of real personality and all credit to the people involved in restoring it, especially the woodwork in the medieval hall upstairs and the replica dining table. It would be a fantastic place to spend a holiday.
I now look forward to visiting south Wales, a part of the country I don’t know too well, and hopefully summer will have started by then!
