We decided to go the the Carne Arms, Llysworney for our anniversary and looked for somewhere to stay for the night. We made the decision at the very last minute and with the sun shining and temperatures rising it proved impossible to find a suitable place to stay in or around Cowbridge. It was looked like we would have to make it a 300 mile daytrip until we widened our search area and found Limpert Bay B&B.
It was on a pebble beach, not too far from where we were heading and had a self-contained flat with its own private entrance. Perfect for us. The reviews praised the B&B, the owners and the breakfast . . . . And it was available.
We had a wonderful time at Limpert Bay. Sharne and Tucker treated us like old friends. On arrival Sharne asked if we had brought milk. As it happened, we had forgotten the milk and Sharne instantly made a bottle appear for us. She then kindly offered to give us a lift to the nearby pub if we wanted an evening meal. The flat was perfect. Compact but with everything you could possibly need including a ridiculously comfortable bed.
Served in a beautiful dining room, the full breakfast was the perfect way to round off our anniversary celebration (and oh my life, the reviews are spot on - fabulous breakfast, made exactly to order, poached egg, yum yum yum!)
And as for the power station. We sat alone on the beach and watched the incredible sunset. We slept like lambs. We made coffee in the morning and watched horses while the kettle bolied. Sharne gave us about eight pounds of apples from one of the trees in the garden. We had a truly marvellous breakfast that kept us going until we got home . . . . Did someone say power station?
