April 2021

Ollie in the bluebells

Spring is more than in the air, the bluebells are dazzling and the orchard is in full blossom, and the earlier sense of optimism has come to fruition; it’s wonderful to have guests back again. We have old favourites (you know who you are 😊) and new faces, with hopefully the latter turning into the former over time.

April has been brilliantly sunny and we’ve been out and about as much as ever. Having invested in electric bikes (best invention ever!) we’ve been more adventurous than ever, exploring Snowdonia. There are a multitude of astonishingly beautiful quiet tracks and lanes. Yesterday we cycled to Caernarfon for lunch in the sun in the picturesque cobbled castle square, edged by outdoor cafes and the castle itself; it felt positively European!

Over the winter we’ve thought about how to improve our guests’ stays and have done the following:

Improved the outdoor lighting


    • New bean bag sunloungers (already well received!)
    • Bigger, smart television
    • Blackout curtains in the main bedroom


    • Outdoor sofa set
    • TV upgrade to smart (via streaming stick)

Guest room:

    • TV upgrade to smart (via streaming stick)
    • Small sofa
    • Folding table and chairs for indoor or outdoor eating

If you’ve been before we hope you approve! If there’s something you’d really like to have seen on that list then please let us know and we will definitely consider all suggestions.

As an ongoing project we are updating the artwork in the apartment and have commissioned some local seascapes (one actually from the terrace, couldn’t be more local!) from a very talented young artist. We’re really excited to have that underway and hopefully the finished results will feature in the next blog!
