2018 - August

August was predictably our busiest month at Crafnant House with a huge array of guests visiting our beautiful corner of Wales from places as far apart as Austria, Malta and Australia. They enjoyed between them plenty of zip wiring, inland surfing, hiking, and even an Ironman competition!

In the garden we harvested our delicious potatoes and raspberries, which found their way into our guest breakfasts - the latter make a lovely morning cake!

We continued to enjoy the summer weather and exploring our local area by bike. I rode the long climb to nearby Nebo for the first time - the view at the top across Snowdonia was well worth the pain in my legs and lungs!! Stu and I also did the Tour de Mon (Tour of Anglesey) which offered stunning scenery all the way round. It’s certainly worth bringing your bikes if you come and see us!

In the interests of ‘guest research’, we enjoyed a very tasty lunch at beautiful Caffi Gywnant - a former chapel close to the start of the Watkin Path up Snowdon. Chorizo and baked eggs for Stu; Manx kippers for me. Yum - well worth a visit!!

As the month closed we took delivery of our smart new Crafnant House postcards, created using an old sketch of the house, and inspired by our friends at Warren House B&B. Now our guests can let their friends know how much they enjoyed their stay in the old fashioned way :-).


We hope you had a great summer!
