Christmas Markets

Posted by on Nov 20, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

There is nothing better to get you in the festive mood than a trip to a Christmas Market. It’s such a lovely feeling being all wrapped up ambling around the stalls drinking mulled wine and eating mince pies. There are lots of small local Christmas markets and fairs taking place, but the two most notable ones that are worth going out of your way to visit are the Portmerion Food and Craft Fair and the Llandudno Christmas Fayre. PORTMERION FOOD AND CRAFT FAIR: Always very popular, this is a wonderful place to go. The food on offer is amazing; lots of stalls promoting local brands which when you see them altogether makes you realise just how many great products are coming out of the area. As well as the food, the gifts here are lovely; original, quirky and definitely the type of things you won’t find else where. There are also some lovely skin care brands which again are locally made. Alongside all of the stalls are cooking demonstrations, wine tasting, bands and choirs and of course Father Christmas will be in his grotto! Christmas is magical and so the venue couldn’t be better; the magical Portmeirion offers you a chance to get away from it all and indulge yourself in a bit of Christmas cheer. DATE: 5th & 6th December TIME: 10.00am – 5.00pm PRICE: Adults £5 Children £3.00 LLANDUDNO CHRISTMAS FAYRE Due to its popularity, the Llandudno Christmas Fayre has now extended from Madoc street into Trinity Square making it one of the biggest Christmas fayres in North Wales. Set over 4 days in the town centre, the fayre takes on a Dickensian theme and there are over 150 stalls offering gifts, crafts, demonstrations and of course Father Christmas in his grotto. There is a big focus on food and drink this year, showcasing many of the local microbreweries. Great Orme Brewery of Llandudno will be hosting a bar serving 10 local beers on draft alongside great entertainment that will be running from 11.00am – 7.00pm.

Top 5 Cosy Holiday Cottages For Autumn Retreats

Top 5 Cosy Holiday Cottages For Autumn Retreats

Posted by on Oct 16, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

It’s that lovely time of year; all the colours outside are changing, there is a chill in the air and when the evening comes in, its time to light the fire. A fireplace is part of the course here in Snowdonia and so if you want to enjoy the pleasure of one whilst on holiday, here are our top 5 cosy holiday cottages for Autumn retreats….   LLYS DERWIN Llys-Derwin is a magical character holiday cottage near Criccieth in North Wales. Built in the 16th century with the blood money of King Henry VIII in his effort to influence the nearby monastery the cottage is a fascinating combination of old world charm and modern comforts.   TY NEWYDD Ty Newydd is a romantic one bedroom holiday cottage in Bala North Wales. This simple yet elegant cottage provides self catering holiday accommodation for up to two people in a beautifully tranquil location.   NANT Nant, which means brook or spring in welsh and refers to the small brook that runs past this cottage, is a two bedroom self catering barn conversion in Dyffryn Ardudwy. Its difficult for me to be objective when describing Nant as its the larger of the two self catering cottages that we let out ourselves here on the farm. But I hope you’ll agree when I say they’re nicely furnished and decorated.   TWLC-DYRUS This traditional stone barn has been converted into a one bedroom character holiday cottage on a working farm near Pwllheli in North Wales. There are 5 holiday cottages on the farm altogether. All very professionally run and spotlessly clean. Guests have the added luxury of a small on site spa cabin with hot tub, sauna and treatment room.   LLWYNCELYN The renovation of Llwyncelyn, a picturesque holiday cottage in Dinas Mawddwy, has obviously been a labour of love for owners Paul and Di. Their care and attention to detail during the restoration process is apparent in every corner of this lovely two bedroom stone built cottage in Dinas Mawddwy....

Whitewater Rafting In Snowdonia

Whitewater Rafting In Snowdonia

Posted by on Jun 19, 2015 in Blog | 1 comment

Whitewater rafting comes up on many a bucket list and many of us think that in order to do experience it properly, we have to go far flung places across the world. Not the case. The National White Water Centre, located here in Snowdonia, is the only commercially rafted stretch of water in the UK. A mix of natural resources and dam controlled rapids, make it one of the best places in the world to enjoy the sport. Depending on what you are looking for in your whitewater experience, its all covered here…. the Tryweryn river mixes the intensity of an Olympic-grade whitewater course with a gentle journey through the Snowdonia National Park. The grade 3-4 rapids on the upper Tryweryn will offer you the full thrill of whitewater, but if admiring the beauty of the area is more you’re thing, you might be tempted by the grade 2-3 rapids on the lower part. However, if you want a bit of both, there is a 7km run that takes you the whole way! So instead of hours of travel and standing in airports, jump in the car (2.5 hours from Birmingham, Liverpool or Manchester and only 5 hours from London) and get yourself booked onto a session of whitewater rafting in Snowdonia…its exhilarating, fun and you definitely wont be disappointed! We have some beautiful cottages close to the centre, so if you’re wanting to make more of holiday of the experience, have a look: DIONI HOLIDAY COTTAGES,...
