Family gatherings and the celebration of significant birthdays continue to be the most common reasons why guests book Pentre Bach House or one of the smaller cottages. In fact some family gatherings recently have included family members coming from as far away as Germany and even New Zealand!
Last weekend all our properties were booked by a large family celebrating their grandmother's 80th birthday.
However we do get people coming to this beautiful part of the world for very different reasons. Since the Wales Coast Path was launched in 2012, we've experienced an increasing number people who've booked one of our cottages to use as a base to explore some sections of the coastal path north and south of Llwyngwril. The path actually passes the end of our drive and guests can always use the Cambrian Coast rail line to reach further away sections.
This weekend we've hosted a group from Buckinghamshire who have come to climb Snowdon, even though we tried to encourage them to choose our local mountain Cader Idris instead!
Last week we had a couple staying in Y Llaethdy who were participating in a Veterans' Golf tournament at nearby Aberdyfi Golf Course. Another couple enjoyed their honeymoon here and enjoyed many spectacularly romantic sunsets while sitting on the bench overlooking Cardigan Bay. Congratulations to Sinead and Hayley-Jane! This was the photograph taken by the golfing couple.
Last year we had a group who were here to take part in a Writing Course. Hopefully they were inspired by the stunning scenery around here!
Sadly we had one family who came for a weekend in order to scatter their parents' ashes, some up at Cregennan Lakes and some off Barmouth Bridge, where their parents had spent many happy holidays.
We've got one lady who's booked a week later this year, who used to holiday here with her aunt who lived in Pentre Bach over 40 years ago! No doubt she will see a few changes.
And finally we are getting more and more people who come to Llwyngwril to see the now famous yarnbombing.
Why did you come to Pentre Bach? We'd love to hear from anyone who's stayed here who had a different reason for choosing to come here.
