Wet & Windy Weekend in Wales

Wednesday, 10 September 2014

A couple of weeks a go, we booked Friday off work and jumped in DG’s new wheels for a weekend trip to Wales. After a sleepy drive up there on Thursday night, we arrived and fell fast asleep as soon as we walked through the door. 

Then I woke up to this. Happy days!

Dolgellau

We were in a small market town called Dolgellau, in North Wales, staying in the cutest little cottage. I loved every moment from the minute we arrived. The weather was pretty dismal but we were prepared with wellies and waterproofs so it didn’t hold us back.

Even though I love London it can beat you down without you realising it and its only when you leave for the weekend that you realise how stressed out it was making you. Dolgellau couldn’t have been more different to London and we embraced it with open arms.

Each morning we’d have a potter around the town, buying freshly baked bread from the bakery and sausages and bacon from the friendliest butchers (who speak English and Welsh) then heading home to read papers by the fire and enjoy a delicious cooked breakfast.  

We spent our days walking around lakes....

For such a small town Dolgellau has lots to offer, with bikes to rent and walks out across beautiful mountains or just relaxing in a one of the tea rooms, bistros or proper country pubs.

It even makes going for a run seem more appealing!

One day we excitingly found a patch of blackberries ripe for picking so filled a bag and went home to make a blackberry crumble. Being more of a city girl than a country bumpkin, I thought this was the best thing in the world!

If you need to escape the world and want to be holed up in a cute town, with friendly people, amazing views and delicious fresh food then I’d highly recommend a trip to Dolgellau. They’ll welcome you with a cheery "s’mae" and a smile!
