My Birthday Treat


Today is my birthday, I'll not tell you my age but I'll give you a clue ... it starts with a five and ends with a five (and there's nothing in the middle).

We've been away for the weekend as a special treat, (we still are away ... the posts of the last couple of days and this one are being published automatically), we left on Friday and will be back home on Monday.  The Jacks are in kennels and Suky is with us, loving the one to one time as usual. We have family house sitting, so everything is safe and secure at home, and we can relax.

We are staying in what Lovely Hubby has christened 'The Hobbit House', isn't it lovely.  He told me to book anything I wanted to for my birthday and I chose this.

It's real name is Pontbrenmydyr and it's a National Trust cottage near Ceredigion in West Wales on the edge of Llanerchaeron parkland, and while we stay there we have complete access to the grounds and Llanerchaeron house free of charge, which being National Trust members we would have had anyway.


It looks nice and cosy, these pictures are from the booking site.


My kind of kitchen :-)


Looks lovely!


Simple but lovely.

I'll take some more pictures while we are there and compare them to these.  I just hope we don't come back with too many bumps we've been warned the doorways are low .... so if my memory starts to go I'll blame the bumps to my head acquired on my birthday weekend and not my new grand old age ;-)

Back soon.

  14. Happy Birthday - I am sure you had a WONDERFUL one, staying there. We know Llanachaeron well (it is wonderful come Christmas). What a lovely place to stay, and not too far from home for travelling. I hope you got to the seaside too (and perhaps had some Honey ice cream at Aberaeron.)
