Hafren 22nd October 2022

First Impressions – LOVELY!! I always have reservations when staying somewhere new but very pleasantly surprised, Adrian and Grace were very welcoming and the cottage is lovely, very clean and cosy.

All showered and ready for our first night in, had a lovely Indian takeaway from the Raj Mahal, well mine was lovely, I am vegan and the only thing I would say is to may be avoid the as they were rather greasy, husband said his was a bit inconsistent but a decent effort. We met Adrian & Grace again today and met their chickens, Jack was very happy to be able to stroke one!

Day 3 – we went to the Great Oak café, nice jackets, sausage rolls and homemade broccoli and leak quiche.

Also went up the road to have a walk with Amy, we went to the nature reserve, beautiful scenery, just watch out for all the sheep poop! Wellies advised.

My son wants me to mention that his daddy made “OK Google” cry haha! He said “OK Google, Alexa is better” and she cried!

Daniel and Jack went to Elan Valley today whist Chloe and I had a girly day in the cottage playing games. The pictures they took were incredible, beautiful rainbows too. There is a visitors centre with a café too. We went for dinner at La Terrazza Bistro, Lovely little Italian restaurant, very accommodating for people with dietary requirements and fussy children. LOL.

Visited Gigrin Red Kite Feeding Station today, lovely little shop with knickknacks. I even bought some Christmas pressies!

Back in the hide to view the kites, lots and lots of them gliding through the sky, swooping down to the ground. Not much to do there other than the viewing and gift shop. Went to Aberystwyth Pier, saw the castle ruins, the kids had lot of fun in the arcade. Try to arrive early as parking is challenging.

Amy enjoyed her very first visit to the beach. Woof woof.

In the cottage for our last night, cooking a wholesome meal in preparation for our long drive back to Surrey tomorrow morning.

Overall, we have thoroughly enjoyed our holiday to Wales and our stay in Hafren Cottage.

Already planning our next visit when finances allow!

Enjoy! Thankyou Adrian and Grace! X♡X
