At the beginning of September myself and my boyfriend celebrated our fourth anniversary. Whilst last year we really treated ourselves and visited Rome and Florence, this year we stayed closer to home and decided to go across the border to Wales, and I had such a wonderful time. We only spent two days and one night there but I really enjoyed myself and found the whole trip really relaxing. I always find being in the countryside soothing and, being a quarter Welsh, maybe the Welsh air did me good. 🙂
I wanted to share the gorgeous hotel we stayed in, Glangrwyney Court, it was so old-worldly and grand, I felt like I could be living in a Jane Austen novel. Which is fine with me, Pride and Prejudice is my favourite novel! We stayed in the ‘Toile Room’. On their website you can book a specific room and see images of it.
The countryside and towns were really beautiful too. We climbed a mountain called the Sugar Loaf which was tiring but amazing. Unfortunately it was cloudy as heck at the summit so we couldn’t see anything! For our one evening meal in Wales we ate out at The Dragon Inn in Crickhowell which turned out to be a great choice, the food, service and surroundings were brilliant and it felt intimate and romantic.
I look forward to visiting Wales again in future and climbing another mountain! If you have any questions about the trip or accommodation etc, please do ask in the comments.
