    Posted on April 16, 2014 by in Facilities

  • Winter Works

    Posted on February 28, 2014 by in Facilities

    It’s been a busy off season making good and replacing, cleaning, and preparing for the coming season.

    Sky is back on. Sports and HD pack. I was wondering how best to contact them when they rang me to offer a re-connection deal. When they rang I was up a ladder in Penbryn Mynach painting two high walls on the stairs. I was in Barmouth that day (7th March) waiting for BT 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 […]
