Life for everyone is far from normal during these difficult times and whilst all our favourite shops and restaurants etc were closed we have missed our freedoms like never before. Whilst we continue to adhere to the government guidelines whilst restrictions ease, we’ve made a list of the places that are going to be top of our to do list when it is safe to do so! What are you looking forward to doing on your return to Valley View Holiday Park?
This medieval castle rising dramitacally above its celebrated garden is always a wonderful day out with the gardens never being the same on any visit. The world famous garden was laid out with French and Italian influences and it still has it’s original lead statues and orangery on the terrace. The castle itself was built circa 1200 and started life as a medieval fortress. It has been remodelled and embellished over its lifetime to reflect the needs of the Herbert family who inhabited it, each generation adding to it’s collections which adorn the walls.
The garden, courtyard and Garden Coffee Shop reopened on the 10th July. If you are planning on visiting please book via their website.
Nags Head Garthmyl
We’re looking forward to having a pub lunch at The Nags Head in Garthmyl, which has quickly become a firm favourite since we took over the park two years ago. The award winning food definitely lives up to the hype and is all sourced locally. This is definitely somewhere to have that long verdue catch up with family or friends over a long lunch – something we can’t wait to do.
The Nags Head will be reopening for alfresco dining and drinking on Monday the 13th July as well as operating a take away service. For more information visit thier website or call them on 01686 640600
Pistyll Rhyder Waterfalls
At 240ft, Britain’s tallest single drop waterfall is quite simply captivating to see. Many say they quickly find peace when they are near the waterfall – something that in these uncertain times we could all do with a bit of. To access the waterfall from the village of Llanrhaeadr Ym Mochant, find Waterfall Street next to the Greatorex stores and follow the road for four miles.
