Portmerion 5th March

To make it a bit if a break, decided to go and stay at Portmerion. Never been before and got a cracking deal stating on a Monday night.
Drove through the middle of Wales to get there, the roads were amazing and was in awe if the wonderful scenery.
The weather was very kind to us and we arrived in Portmerion in time for a light lunch in the newly refurbished castle.
Then it was check in and out to explore the site. Our room had an amazing view of the estuary and even had complimentary sherry. Perfect pre dinner drink!
Had a great time exploring the compound “I am not a number I’m a free man” was going round in my head. It truly is a magical place and it’s fantastic that someone thought to build it. After a bracing walk along the beach to catch the sunset it was back to the bar for drinkers. Well it was gin o clock!
We were booked in for dinner in the hotel, the dining room was like something from a 1930’s cruise ship. The food was gorgeous, I had locally smoked salmon to start followed by steak, I was do full but managed to have lemon posset for pud. I have never seen a pudding so big!!
Nightcap to try and ease the over indulgence!
Started the day with full welsh breakfast, which was just like a full English with the addition of fried potatoes!
Our journey home took us round the north coast of Wales. Called into Llandudno which appeared to be the home on the Austrian blind! Did the journey round the great orme. Had great panoramic views of the landscape.
Called into Chester on the way home and had a late lunch at Artichoke on the canal side. They are one of my customers so was lovely to see them and the food was excellent.
Then it was back home but at least was a short week ๐Ÿ™‚
