    March snow

    Posted on March 26, 2013 by in Barmouth

    Barmouth escaped the snow that hit inland north Wales very hard on Friday and Saturday (22nd/23rd).

    Bwlch Oerddrws – Sea and Sky

    Posted on March 14, 2013 by in Facilities, Sea

    Bwlch-Oerddrws (or Cold Door Pass) is the 1200 foot high mountain pass on the A470 road from Dinas-Mawddwy to Dolgellau (or vice versa!). I must have travelled this road 100 times or more and it was only today on my way down to Dolgellau that I noticed a little bit of sea. I managed to […]

  • Cooker glass arrived!

    Posted on February 8, 2013 by in Facilities

    It was Christmas Eve 2012 and one of our Christmas guests rang with very worrying news. The cooker was not working properly. Of all the things in a holiday home not to be working on Christmas Eve this is top of the list of what any cottage owner does not want to hear. Almost impossible […]
