My happy childhood holiday memories of sandy chips and wooden forks meant I really liked Aberdyfi from the minute we arrived. The wooden forks have been replaced by blue plastic ones but my chips drenched in vinegar tasted every bit as good. Add the harbour sounds and fresh sea and we all got that real [...]

Dominic Clare – Wood Sculptor in Snowdonia, North Wales

December 2, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

I had the pleasure of spending some time with Dominic Clare last month, a fantastic local sculptor based here in Snowdonia, North Wales.

With comfortable leather sofas and sumptuous cushions guests are encouraged to curl up with a mug of hot chocolate after a long walk in the wild rhinog mountains behind the cottage. We’ve reduced [...]
