Summer is coming to an end and the orchard is groaning with apples and pears, and it’ll be a good year for sloes. After a strange but peaceful start to the year we’ve loved having guests back to share Coed y Berclas with us. We’ve been fully booked since lockdown was lifted and through September. We’ve met some genuinely lovely and interesting new guests but most are returners or recommendations, and it’s always great to welcome back familiar faces.
The guest room, which we refurbished and tentatively offered last year has been incredibly popular for short breaks, or as additional accommodation for apartment or cottage guests. To those of you who have stayed this summer I have breaking news, the milk fridge has been upgraded, now big enough for four bottles of wine!
For us, highlights of the summer have included watching a stunning Red Arrows display from the beach next to RAF Valley, who were practising prior to VJ Day celebrations. But just exploring the island is a joy, we’re always staggered by the coastline and how varied and beautiful it is. We walked on the coast path around Point Lynas on August bank holiday Monday on a beautiful day and saw more seals than people. The day before, we walked around Church Bay and discovered our new favourite cafe, the Wavecrest.
Our 2021 availability is now online. We don’t take a deposit until 6 months beforehand so if you’d like to pencil in a spring or summer date then we would reserve it for you and it would be risk free. And of course, as with this year, we would refund any forced Covid cancellations.
Thanks to Rebecca for this month’s photos!
