We are at the very early stages of planning a family trip to Wales for Christmas (2018) for a family of 5 including 6 year old and 4 year old boys plus nana . We are planning to fly from Australia to London and spend 3/4 days there hit some museums/parks then head to the welsh countryside. The idea behind this trip is too experience a 'Traditional Christmas'. We are planning on a 3 week stay including London. We want to rent a holiday house in a nice town that has some community…
I'm taking my mother to Wales and she has her heart set on watching a choir and then going to a pub with the choir! Does this happen? Where can I find a schedule? We will be staying in the Hlangollen area.
Myself and a bunch of friends (all with young families) are looking for a lovely, basic campsite for the end of May. Ideally we'd like to have a camp fire and have a lovely outlook. We don't need any facilities apart from toilets and showers. Any one know of any hidden gems or stunning spots. Many thanks.
I will be spending 2 weeks in England for work, and want to spend the weekend in between in Wales. I will finish on Friday in Birmingham, and need to be in Bristol Sunday evening. Given that, I've concluded the portion of Wales I should visit is the south.
I've discovered the Pembrokeshire Falconry at Picton Castle outside Haverfordwest, I am really want to do that. I know the quickest route there is south from Birmingham on M5, then heading east starting on M50. But, since I'll be…
Specifically, we'd like to visit Harlech, Caernafon, Beaumaris/Anglesey, and Conwy. We're wrapping up in London on Tuesday, May 31st and need to head to Derby Friday, June 3rd for a wedding Saturday.
I'm trying to figure out where it would be best to pick up a rental car given our start and end points. I'd like to get in/out of the area by train or bus. Honestly, I'd prefer not to drive at all, but from what I've read in the forums it would be challenging to see what we want within our time…
i will be returning to the UK after spending some time working/studying aboard and will be moving to Cardiff as soon as i get back (i know nothing about this city). before my best friend took me out for dinner so obviously i owe her dinner in return so please could you advise me on some good restaurants + bars + clubs etc that i could take her to? by the way i was looking for personal recommendations rather than guide books internet etc because i have always found those to be more useful…
I am coming to Cardiff on Easter weekend for the Half Marathon. Have been to Wales many times but never to the South. I'm looking at driving there very early on the Friday morning and leaving Sunday morning, probably taking my time driving back via the Wye Valley. Parking in Cardiff seems a bit of a nightmare so I've booked somewhere to stay Friday/Saturday night in Penarth. I'll have Friday afternoon, Saturday morning and Sunday morning free to explore- any ideas of what I should be aiming…
We are planning a three weeks summer holiday on the Island (we're from Germany). One week we would like to rent a cottage on the Welsh coast. But now the decision: where?
It should be a base for exploring some wild places but also offer the possibility just to take a bath nearby. We don't like overcrowded beaches and our kids prefer some adventurous feeling. But it should of course be accessible for 10 year old kids!
Would you suggest South or North coast? Which one is not too crowded in…
Looking to arrange a weekend for 8 - 10 people in late March near Snowdonia. Looking for a mix of activities on or near the doorstop; kayaking (for beginners) mountain biking, country pubs(!) etc.
Can anyone recommend a good base destination?
And also a good holiday cottage/house rental for 8 - 10 people?
Really appreciate any info you can give.
Has anyone run the Cardiff Half Marathon? I'd be interested in how you liked the race, what to do in the area, is the area expensive or not, inexpensive places to stay. The race starts at Cardiff Castle, so I'd like a place nearby. Already planning to go to the Dr. Who studio.
