Springtime in North Wales

At this time of the year, North Wales and Snowdonia is looking absolutely beautiful. It’s an ideal time to take long walks into the mountains and along the beaches. The bank holidays provide an ideal opportunity to come to Wales and experience the wonderful scenery we have to offer.

Call us at the farm to see if we have any cottages available. Afonwen Farm makes a great base to explore from!

New Year at beautiful Afonwen

Over the New Year we had some crystal clear days with views over the the snow capped Welsh mountains. It made us realise what a beautiful area we live in.

Lovely sunsets and sunrises as well!

Bird ringing in the reedbed

Sunday night went well with perhaps 100,000 Starlings roosting in the reedbed. I caught 104 including another Belgian ringed one.

There were probably a similar number tonight.

 

 

Christmas 2014

Christmas message from Arthur & Nia…

Blwyddyn Newydd Dda i bawb. Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you all in 2015.

Thank you for another great year here on the farm. The weather has been good with an exceptional September. Sunsets and Sunrise have been quite fantastic.

Our new project is going well, the two bungalows by the beach on the edge of our fields, you cant miss them. Views to die for all around. Hopefully we will have some caravans or pods on site by summer 2015!
