Holiday Snaps

I'm back from my holiday with my Mum and Dad.  We had a lovely time (even though the weather was very unpredictable at times)

We stayed in a gorgeous cottage next to an ancient parish church..

The view from the sitting room was spectacular.

We visited the National Trust Gardens at Llanerchaeron..

We spent quite a bit of time at the coast, exploring NewQuay..

...and Aberaeron

We also ventured inland to Cenarth - which has a beautiful bridge and pretty waterfalls.

We also went to Cilgerran Castle..

..and St Dogmael's Abbey.

Ofcourse I missed Mark like mad.  (Unfortunately, being an engineer, he has 'real people's' holidays and doesn't have the flexibility to join us.  It's 'shut down' at the factory at the moment and this is the time he has to work hardest. He is really ready for a break - poor soul!)


  1. Looks great Jan,glad you enjoyed your time with your parents.

  2. How lovely to be able to visit such beautiful places with your parents. Sounds like a nice holiday.

  3. Oh, looks like another place to add on the list of places to visit, looks very nice x

  4. It sounds like you've had a lovely time and visited some beautiful places!

  5. It looks like a lovely vacation. I know your mom and day enjoyed their time with you, and your husband is happy to have you home.

  6. A wonderful post with so much history! Since Cilgerran Castle was new to me, I took the opportunity to do a google search. I can get lost in reading about just one castle and it's history. Your post was like a mini-holiday for me.

  7. A corner of the world I don't know much about - glad you enjoyed your break in such a lovely place.

  8. Looks like you have had a lovely time and visited some great places. I loved Aberaeron with all its colourful Georgian houses:)

  9. hello Jan,
    Good to have you back and sounds as if you have really had a great holiday.
    Thanks for the photos.....wonderful countryside. It all looks so peaceful and relaxing and I´d really enjoy wandering around those old buildings.

    Keep well

    Amanda :-)
