Cream tea platter

Some new things for Gwaenynog We’re always looking for new ideas and to update and improve what we do here at Gwaenynog… so here are a few recent changes we’ve made: Platters Not a particularly original idea by us, but we had such a lovely ploughman’s platter when visiting somewhere over the winter that we decided…

Gin & Tonic…

Sunday June 14th, 2015 | Fiona

Drinks options

The perfect G&T Cocktail There are 2 reasons why I thought I’d write about this – one is because Saturday 13th June was apparently World Gin Day!! Whoever thought of such a thing…? Anyway, I am a particular fan of a good G&T, and it’s my “cocktail” of choice whenever I’m offered a pre-dinner drink….

Spring Newsletter – 2015

Tuesday May 5th, 2015 | Fiona

Hello As promised to most of you, I’m not a prolific blog or newsletter writer, but I try and keep up-to-date with the things going on at Gwaenynog at least once a year. My new year resolutions always include writing more regularly, but I get busy and time goes by so fast… Anyway, onto the…

Eisteddfod 2015 and Weddings…

Tuesday April 1st, 2014 | Fiona

I’m trying to fulfil my promise to write something every month, mostly about the happenings at Gwaenynog, or perhaps even things going on in the surrounding area, whether the news is big or small. So here’s April’s offering… and no April Fools jokes, I promise! So, firstly the small things: We decided before we opened…

Wonderful Wales… and an offer

Thursday March 6th, 2014 | Fiona

Challenging Wales Someone told us before we moved to Wales that we’d have to take the weather into account – and we’ve certainly been tested (see previous blogs!). We Brits are known for our obsession with the weather, but even the locals were surprised with the violence of the wind in the week leading up…

Review of 2013

Tuesday January 7th, 2014 | Fiona

We’ve had a busy 2013, what with the campsite fully up and running for a whole season, as well as having 18″ of snowfall within  3 days in late March, followed by a heat wave in June/July. So, quite a contrasting year! To start off, I feel the need to apologise. My new year resolution…

The snow of Spring 2013…

Thursday April 4th, 2013 | Fiona

  Well, what a surprising month March 2013 turned out to be – especially when you compare to 2012. We put our garden furniture outside on the patio in March 2012, but this year… well; suffice to say the garden furniture wasn’t moving out of storage in the barn! March started off comparatively cool, but wet, and…

February 2013 – new beginnings

Saturday March 2nd, 2013 | Fiona

One of the things I have wanted to do since we moved here is create a wildflower meadow. Most of the land is used by the sheep, and the rest is woodland. So, when we had to rearrange the entrance, it gave us a chance to clear away some scrubby-weed-filled space, and we now have…

January 2013 blog

Friday February 15th, 2013 | Fiona

The snow arrived at Gwaenynog on Thursday 17th January making an already beautiful landscape become enchanting. I still find it a surprise at the quietness once it’s snowed – I’d heard the phrase “snow blanket” years ago, but had not really appreciated what that meant. Until moving to Wales in 2009, I had not been…
