Guest's Diary - A Week Exploring North Wales

Updated: Aug 1, 2019

''We love North Wales! Come and stay in our lovely cottages.....''

MORE OFTEN THAN NOT it's really easy to sound biased when talking about our cottages and the lovely local area. For example, it's easy for me to say, 'There's loads to see and do in the area'. 'Many of our guests return year after year.' You'll have a great time staying at The Old Mill Holiday Cottages'.

Our cottages are fantastic value:

The Long Barn, Sleeps 4 and is dog friendly - £300-£595 per week

Millers Cottage, Sleeps 2 and is dog friendly - £225-£390 per week

The Hayloft, Sleeps 2 (Pet free) Long weekends from £180.00

......SO RATHER THAN hear my view, I thought it would be lovely to share a personal account from some of our lovely guests (The W Family). They stayed for a week in The Long Barn during the summer, and have kindly shared their day by day account, of how they spent their fun packed week exploring this beautiful part of North Wales, Cheshire & Liverpool.

'Absolutely gorgeous cottage. The facilities provided in The Long Barn are amazing. We thought we would share some ideas of places to go...'

Day 1 - Llandundo

Lovely sunny day, so we decided to go to Llandudno (Approx. 35-40 minutes away). Great well kept Victorian seaside resort. Walked along the pier for great views.

We took the train around the Great Orme

In the evening we got a take-away from The Indian Lounge. (1/2 mile away). Set menu for 2, easily fed the 4 of us. Very tasty!!)

Day 2 - Cheshire Oaks, Shopping Outlet (30 minutes away)

Good range of restaurants, and shops such as Ralph Lauren, Gap, Cadbury's, Ted Baker.

We went the the cinema in Bomborough, The Wirral. All of these places are approx. 30 minutes away.

Day 3 - Snowdonia National Park (Approx. 1 hour away)

Beautiful stunning Llanberis at the foot of Snowdonia. Has many activities , Mountain Railway to the Summit (Book in advance). Steam train around the lake. Paths to walk up Snowdonia - It's very steep, be prepared!!

Day 4 - Chester (30 minutes away)

Beautiful Roman city.

Shopping, great cafe culture and lovely walks and boat rides down by the river.

Day 5 - Liverpool

1 hour away - Great cultural city, shops, museums (The Tate Gallery, The World Museum, Mersey Ferry Trip. Worth going to the Anglican Cathedral (My Great Uncle was the Stone Mason).

Day 6 - Chester Zoo (30 minutes away)

- A full day needed.

- Try and book ahead for cheaper rates, you can do this at Chester Tourist Information Centre). A great family day out - Elephants, Rhinos, Giraffe, Oranugatans, Lions...

Liz and family, thank you for providing a great home from home!

Best wishes,

The 'W Family'.
