Croeso! Welcome to Lletty Cottage a lovely five star holiday cottage for two in Carmarthenshire

December 29 Christmas, Visitors and Visits December 29, 2014

Well! Can you believe it’s all over   and all the planning, spending, eating, drinking and laughing was worth  every penny and second in the preparations!

We had an amazing few days with the family and loved seeing the Lego train being built  by our grandson  and watched as it gradually  took over the living room and then spread  monster like into the kitchen!

Skyping the rest of the family in Canada was emotional  but seeing the twins ( they are one  in two weeks time) opening up their Christmas presents was a magical experience…how do they learn so early on in life how to rip, tear and eat wrapping paper off  presents?

Although Boxing Day was a rather awful day weather wise we took our visitors to the Botanic Garden where we are  assured of a warm welcome and plenty of things to see and admire…even on a wet day!

From 4th Nov -13Jan

Paintings include work from Song of the Golden Hare, East of the Sun and The Ice Bear.

 

A visit to Aberglasney Gardens was next on our list and seeing the Gardens at any time is a joy but when it is bathed  in ice it takes on a mystical  feel.

Although I have been patient ( not like me at all!) and watched and waited I have sadly not seen the otters that are appearing regularly in the pool at Aberglasney but I’ll be back there soon and I WILL see them!

 

Best wishes to everyone  for a Very Happy New Year.

  1. Lovely photos Marianne, I really love the Proteas at the NBGW. We’ll have to get back to see them soon. What a dilemma with both the NBGW and Aberglasney on our doorstep! Not to mention Picton.
    Happy New Year again!

    Thank you once again for some wonderful photographs. I’m so glad your family enjoyed NBGW and Aberglasney. We are spoilt for choice here in Carmarthenshire. A Happy New Year to you and Jim
