West Walian Winter Wonderland

When you think of the holiday season I suspect you’ll be thinking about long hot summer days with hours spent lazing on the beach. We believe that even the coldest season can be a great time to indulge yourself in a holiday, especially somewhere as beautiful as West Wales.

In case you needed convincing, or added inspiration, we have put together why we believe that winter holidays can trump the Summer season!

Everything looks beautiful when covered in white

The world comes alive with colour during the summer months, which of course is great for those who love the natural landscape! However, there is something wonderful about seeing fields, hills and castles; all sparkled with a glittering dust of frost. Or on the rare occasions, even some snow!

It isn’t quite as busy

When you take a summer holiday you are likely to find that your destination (or even getting to your destination) a little on the busy side. Planning in a winter break means that wherever you go isn’t likely to be too busy. Whilst spending the day on the beach becomes less of an option, there are still plenty of other things to do and even more pleasurable when quieter.

Who doesn’t love a winter walk?

Grabbing those coats, gloves and winter woollies and heading outside in the cold air is something that we love about winter. So, if you book yourself on a winter holiday, you can really make the most of the bracing, fresh air and go on a winter walk. If your pouch is anything like our Alfie, they’ll love the dog friendly winter walks Carmarthenshire has to offer. Make sure that you have the fire ready to light up when you return, and always have the hot chocolate on hand to warm you all up!

Made for the great indoors

If staying in is more your thing, then doing it in Winter is guilt free and should be done in style. Think box sets and thick socks, homemade soups and a good book. None of this would be complete without the perfect pair of winter pyjamas.

One of our favourites is the recently launched nightwear range from Homecoming. Designed and made in London, Homecoming pyjama sets and nightwear are made to be lived in. Made from the softest fabrics they also feature plenty of luxurious details – so moments spent in your PJs are always that bit more special.

Spend some quality time together

It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, going on holiday together means that you get a chance to indulge in some quality family time. The winter months can often seem to drag by, so why not give you and your loved ones something to look forward to in the form of a cosy winter break.

Winter Warming Food

If the summer is about barbecues, the Winter is about slow cooking, one pot wonders that would seem ridiculous to contemplate in the summer heat. If you enjoy self-catering, then the winter is the perfect time to experiment in the kitchen. We’re thinking steaming hot Cawl, Lancashire hot pot or John’s favourite, Beef Bourguignon.  Why not let the butcher come to you and order your meat from Market Porter? Quote ‘WELCOME’ for £10 off your first order.

These are just some of the reasons that we believe no-one should underestimate just how awesome a winter holiday can be.
