Summer 2021

Summer 2021

We’ve been in the news (sort of)! Firstly, whilst reading the news on the terrace we stumble across . . . the view from the terrace! The Guardian has deemed Bangor pier to be Britain’s best, and we’re not going to argue. It’s worth a detour if you have a spare hour or so, there are a few cafes and gift shops, and it’s a particularly lovely sight when the boats from Beaumaris sailing club are racing past. And you get a great view of our house! We reckon the accompanying photo was taken from the bench at the bottom of our garden:

It’s a lovely photo but I think some of guests have taken even better ones!

And secondly, the beautiful Welsh slate landscape of North Wales has become a UNESCO world heritage site. We always thought it was pretty special so very proud that it’s been recognised. Coed y Berclas is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with an unparalleled view across the strait at a world rated heritage sight. Yesterday our apartment guests were out sketching the view in the golden late afternoon light.

We’re fully booked here but not feeling too busy to be out and about, still exploring the island and Snowdonia. Everyone is so happy to arrive, and it still feels like the best job in the world. For those of you who have been in the last year I can report not only that the garage is now finished but it houses David’s lovingly crafted Caterham 7 (when he’s not roaring around the island.)

One way the year has been like no other is that we have so many bookings for 2022 already, with most of May and June already booked in the apartment, and a few weeks booked for 2023! As ever, we don’t take a deposit until six months in advance so if you’d like to pencil a week in let us know. It’s always good to have something to look forward to!

Have a wonderful summer.
