Post Welsh retreat
OK, so in the not too distant future, we are offloading our kids onto the misses parents for a couple of weeks in the summer hols. So we have been talking about the opportunity to go for a romantic weekend in West Wales somewhere (but could stretch to North Wales if the place looks good).

Does anybody know of any decent holiday cottages\B & Bs\rentals but ideally with a double Jacuzzi or private hot tub? I mean if you're gonna do it, may as well to it properly!

Plenty of Castles/Manor Houses about.

We've stayed in one in Monmouthshire, just north east of Monmouth itself.

Heated indoor swimming pool and the owner made his own wine back in the days we used to go and hire a ground floor of a wing.

The owner's probably gone on now but it's worth looking for just west of Welsh Newton down a lane. Ask in the Welsh Newton Post Office first.

West Wales has half a dozen, my lad's stayed in Amroth Castle.

I think my son said it's okay but not great.

Can't help feeling that Amroth Castle doesn't seem to quite fill the bill as a quiet romantic getaway. Looks more like Butlins. :D

No jacuzzis as I can remember but there are 2 B & B's on the sea front in Llangranog, Took my Wife there for an apology weekend a few years ago and it worked.

Did you have to apologize for taking someone else there before ?
;) :D

Thanks all. I think we have found something for us (without a hot-tub though :( ) very difficult thing to search for in tinternet alone!

Anyway looks like a decent studio apartment near Aberystwyth. Whatever makes her happy I guess!

The same way as everyone else... go for a forest walk and some always turns up in a bush somewhere!
