Fantastic week again at Gamallt, nice and relaxing, had a lovely Sunday lunch at Golf Club, so peaceful here we could stay forever!
A lovely week down here with great weather too. H and M are now one and becoming more mobilewhich has been more difficult. Ross is less mobile with ANOTHER broken arm - but at least we didn't have to bring the bike! Last two days have been much quieter without Mum and Dad, and we have missed the extra hands too, to catch speedy twins! New roof is great! Thanks again Mum and Dad we have had a great week.
A lovely few days snatched from the jaws of relentless (seamingly) 12 hour night shifts. Glorious weather, lovely walk at Whitesands and St Davids - Fab meal at The Salutation, cafe on Parrog highly recommended - especially the chilli in flatbread!! Other favourite haunts visited - Bessie's (Gwaun Valley). Had a drive past the lovely Solva and Newgale due to time restrictions but what a reminder of fab days out.
Adam's first time at Gamallt and my first time without the rest on the family! We have absolutely loved our peaceful week away. I haven't been down in 5 years and the cottage is just as I remembered it. New windows in Kitchen and bathroom are fantastic! Had some fab rips out and cosy nights in - We've rediscovered the joys of crosswords and lof fires! Thank you for a lovely week Mum and Dad, hopefullt it won't be another five years before Im back again!
Haven't been down for a while but it was just as magical as when I was younger. Lots of tasty food at traditional pubs - highlight was cottage pie and cheesy leeks at the Salutation. Went down to the rope swing but realised we had grown a bit too big for it sadly, still had fun despite almost scraping our legs on the floor. Hopefully will be back soon, maybe summer! Always have the most cosy and lovely family times here and I have the most amazing childhood memories11
Wow, the cottage looks great. Well done Mum and Dad. You have done an amazing job!(With a little help from Joanie and John Whit) Had a lovely week with brilliant weather and helped even more by the twins sleeping through a couple of nights - BLISS! Had a lovely trip to Cardigan Island Farm Park!! Sorry to be leaving but I'm sure the girls can't wait to see Daddy who had to stay home and work!(Hehe) Bye bye until September!!
What better way to spend the Easter holidays than a weekend in Gamallt! Spring is finally in the air and it's such an amazing feeling waking up and stepping outside to the woods on your doorstep! Can't believe it's benn 5 years since I was last here...! Had great fun rediscovering all of the old haunts. Bessies bar, The Tin Pub, Whitesands bay etc! Nice to see the dens that I built in my childhood are still here - see if you can find them in the woods! Hopefully next time I'm here I'll have my first teaching job - hope it's not another 5 years until I'm back1 See you soon Gamallt.
We have loved being at Gamallt. The dogs have had the best holiday of their young lives. We have loved reading the 'visiters book'. We enjoyed exploring the walks around the cottage. We've paddled in the river and the dogs have been in everyday. We have been lucky with the weather. We walked to Newport a few times a lovely walk and shared an ice cream with the dogs there. Well back to sunny shropshire! Hope to see you again Gamallt!
Early starts at the beach thanks to Tiddler! Lovely week.
Ace boat trip from Poppit sands.
Had a lovely few days relaxing - Hot, hot, hot - in fact only day 3 and I'm hiding from the sun indoors!Gamallt looking gorgeus
First time down without any children in tow, tis true there really is life 'on the other side'. Just managed to fit a few days in between night shifts ending and D of E, GCSE's etc.Went to Bwlch Nant Yr Arian which is a feeding station for Red Kites - we were delighted and astonished to see between 150 and 200 Red Kites appear from nowhere for feeding time. Saw a fully grown badger on the track. Authentic curries as the Royal Oak in Newport. Tafn Sinc (Tin Pub) Eosebush - belting food.
Good to be back, still as magical as ever. Amooth snake in the garden - or was it a slow worm?!! Found Bessie's - how good is that? Monty kept us snug, and the dogs loved the freedom. Had to do a temporary fix on the toilet flush, hope it lasts. The week flew by, very sad to leave, but hope to be back soon. Diolch Gamallt!
Had a lovely week of sunshine - couldn't have asked for better. Painted the fence and planted flowers. Lovely walks and bike rides for Ross. Thanks again.
Quite wonderful. 1st week coldish and wetish but all soon snug. 2nd part unbelieveably good weather. Cracking the grass! Much of the usual chopping & cleaning started on path - still too boggy to use easily. K's retired now so going home for her, ain't going back to work no more. A lot of Chinese medicine under my belt. Most mornings studying 8 principles, Ying & Yang cold hot interior exterior shi & xu. Successful cupping of K's knees, lot less swollen now. Leaving jem & Ross to enjoy the sunshine. Frances Ireland just had a baby girl in St Mary's m/c wishing her a beautiful healthy life.
Happy 2010! Loved the break. Ditto all the previous comments for this lovely holiday. Am retiring in April so should get much more of the same. Happy Birthday Jem - I remember it well !
Happy 2010! Loved the break, ditto all the previous comments. Am retiring in April so should get much more of the same.
An amazing place to 'chill out'. We will be back.
Thanks to Gamallt I have had the best week of my life. It was excellent. So can we come back next year? Hope we can.
A relaxing and peaceful haven that brought out the child in me. From hanging over the river on a tree to a swing on the swing with peals of laughter. Walking in this area is beautiful. We will savour the moments here and be back again.
A splendid cottage, perfectly in the middle of nowhere - log burner lovely and warm - will be back, hopefully in the summer.
For the pleasure of this beautiful Gamallt! And the memories I will hold. Forever will stay like dreams of Gold.
Peaceful seclusion. Lovely. Relaxation at its best.
Anna will always remember Gamallt as her fairy cottage in the woods. Wonderful.
We thought we'd been to heaven last year when we stayed not far from here. We were wrong! It had nothing on Gamallt.
