Imperial Hotel Torquay Review

"We were sitting on one of the terraces of the Majestic Hotel. It is the biggest hotel in St Loo and stands in its own grounds on a headland overlooking the sea. The gardens of the hotel lay below us freely interspersed with palm trees. The sea was of a deep and lovely blue, the sky clear and the sun shining." Agatha Christie, Peril at End House

His and Hers Outfits for a Forest Walk

I really need to get outdoors more.  We're spoilt for choice in our little Welsh valley with Forestry Commission land, parks, and mountains.  I doubt I've explored more than 5% of it!  One sluggish Saturday I dragged myself and my husband out of the house and proclaimed that we were going on an adventure.  I packed a flask of tea (what adventure is complete without one?), emergency bananas, and sensible shoes.  Our destination was a local Country Park that I've driven past a hundred times but never ventured into.  It turned out to be a magical place, with trails veering off into the forest in all directions, dotted with streams and waterfalls.

Gourmet Break at The Metropole Hotel, Llandrindod Wells

In today's blog post I'd like to share my report on a gourmet break to a Victorian spa town in Mid Wales.  My husband and I stayed at the Metropole in Llandrindod Wells for a little pre-Valentine's treat.  Well, you need all the adventures you can get in February, don't you?

Llandrindod Wells is about 60 miles from us, on a route that takes us over the moors and into the Brecon Beacons National Park.  It's a lovely drive, but it was snowing as we crossed the moors, and I was praying it wouldn't stick too much so we could get to our destination!  It was fine, and the snow eased up once we crossed through the spectacular Horseshoe Pass and down to Brecon.
