This weekend myself and the hubby took an impromptu trip to Wales. It's our 4th wedding anniversary this coming Wednesday so we took advantage of the nice weather an booked a BnB to stay in. We live pretty close to Wales, so it was the perfect opportunity to spend some more time in one of our favourite places in the World.
We booked a gorgeous BnB in Guilsfield, just outside of Welshpool. The house was a stunning Georgian property and we ended up having our own living room, dining room, bedroom and bathroom. We were well and truly spoilt by the owner and her gorgeous Golden Retriever, Dudley.
On Saturday, we had an explore of the nearby towns of Oswestry and Welshpool, spending our time browsing the cute shops and eating our way through the day. Saturday evening saw us enjoying a home-cooked meal from a local pub, that even catered for my food intolerances.
This morning we had a breakfast and headed up to Llangollen to the Pontcysllte Aquaduct. The aquaduct is a canal boat crossing, only wide enough for one boat and towers above the countryside. We had the perfect weather and could see for miles. After exploring the aquaduct, we headed into Llangollen town centre and found some really quaint shops to explore. The sun shone, so we got time to sit outside a pub over looking the river - bliss. The town is famous for steam trains and horse-drawn boats, I met Stanley the horse ready for the next boat trip.
As always we had a wonderful time in Wales and couldn't recommend visiting enough. If you're around the Chester/Wrexham area and haven't been to Llangollen, I would certainly make the trip.
