Tales from a self catering holiday provider

The Season of Love

Leave a comment Phone 01978 759603

We’re at that time of the Year, just after St Dwynwen’s Day and before St Valentine’s Day when people’s minds can turn to LOVE.

Potential guests are still calling, looking for that “perfect Valentine’s getaway” to show their loved ones how much they care.  People are looking for champagne, flowers and somebody is even looking for a picnic to be supplied.  There’s no mention of any Valentine’s proposals yet but maybe the ladies are waiting until 29th February to take their opportunity to make a Leap Year proposal.

We had news today of yet another successful proposal during a stay with us.  This gentleman proposed to his girlfriend during a mountain walk around New Year.  It was one that we hadn’t been told about beforehand so it may have been a spur of the minute thing.  There have been several of those.  Moon light, stars, spectacular scenery, twinkling fairy-lights and maybe a glass or 2 of Dutch courage have contributed to a “surprise” proposal.

Looking back across our records I think there have been about 130 proposals during our 10 years, and as far as I know, they’ve all been successful.  It’s always great when I’m let in on the secret when the potential “proposer” books a stay.  Sometimes we’re “roped in” to help with the planning.  This is often the case when the person making the booking is serving in the Forces and stationed  overseas.  I’ve liaised with Llechwedd Slate Caverns for when guests have wanted to propose by their underground lake.  I’ve helped choose the right hill-top, vantage point.  I’ve suggested the beach to be on at sunset.  We’ve smuggled bouquets into cabins in the dead of night.  All part of the service that we offer.

If you’d like a romantic stay in Snowdonia this Valentines’ Day or at any other time during the year then get in touch or have a look at the Romantic Breaks page of our website.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.

We can provide gift vouchers for either the full cost or towards  the cost of a stay.  An ideal wedding or anniversary gift.  Extras such as champagne, chocolates, flowers, rose petal strewn beds or picnics can usually be arranged.  Please ask.
