Spring into summer at The Falcondale

Falcondale Gardens

Spring into summer at the fabulous Falcondale in beautiful west Wales. This stunning Italianate mansion is looking especially lovely now that its 14 acres of gardens are in full flower.

Book a break today, and enjoy the blooms while sipping a glass of wine on the hotel terrace, followed by an outstanding meal in the hotel’s award-winning restaurant.

What’s more, there’s so much to do on the doorstep with unspoilt beaches, lush valleys, woodland and wild upland to explore.

This is a walkers’ paradise with so much wonderful countryside to explore. The great thing about this lovely corner of Wales is that it is relatively undiscovered, so you can avoid the crowds.  The Falcondale can supply a map, and a drying room, to ensure that you are warm and dry every time you step outside the door.

Cardigan Bay has been declared a ‘special area of conservation’ and it’s the ideal place to spot dolphins and porpoises, as well as seals.  Inland, the striking bird of prey, the Red Kite, has made a wonderful recovery thanks to dedicated conservationists.  It’s easy to spot soaring in the sky, alternatively, you can see it up close and personal at two nearby kite feeding centres.

And, a must for fishermen and women, the Teifi river offers world class fly fishing.

Stunning local gardens include the famed National Botanic Garden of Wales, Cae Hir, which featured on our TV screens recently, and the lovely  TyGlyn Davis Trust gardens set among mature woodland on the banks of the river Aeron.

Wild, Welsh and woolly:
Fans of quilts and quilting should make a pilgrimage to the world-famous Jen Jones Quilt Centre in Lampeter showing fabulous quilt collections from far and wide.  Without the humble sheep, there would be no wool, take a look at where so many of our prized garments started life at the National Woollen Museum near Llandysul.
