My hubby and I started the New Year (2013) with a blissful weekend in wales. Booking Plas Bach, the self-catering accommodation of Lower House was the best weekend we have had together in a long time. Our retreat was beautifully set out and thought through from goose down duveys to vintage crockery, full stocked kitchen, blissful powershower, super effcient log burner to a welcome pack full of organic and local goodies as well as a folder on the best places to go and things to do in the area. It was immaculate - as if we were the first to stay there. It felt totally our own. Nicky and Pete gave us a warm welcome and then left us alone to enjoy our time in complete privacy but the invite to the house for more cds/books/info was much appreciated. The location is perfect too- a 20 mins walk over the fields to fabulous Hay on Wye where we enjoyed excellent food at Booths Bookshop and stocked up at the local market and Hay Deli where the service was wonderful. On another day we took the recommended drive over Gospel Pass.. only 8 kms away from Plas Bach we were suddenly in the wildly isolated and dramatic landscapes I had been dreaming about. Walks, wilderness, bookshops, glorious accommodation and mouthwatering local cheeses..... who could ask for more. Just one tip - you will want more than 3 days.
