Holiday Cottage Opening Soon….

After downing tools for the festive period we’re now on the final slog (honest!). Most rooms in the cottage are now nearly finished, just a few snagging jobs / final inspections done then we’ll be ready to rent. We’re hoping everyone will enjoy our remote little holiday home in beautiful Snowdonia as much as we…

A weekend in the Hills

I’ve just had the first weekend in @littlhousewales where I actually got out and did a bit of walking / scrambling in beautiful Snowdonia.

We’ve now just finished painting the bedrooms and will hopefully be getting onto the…
