Three nights in Abergavenny

Our time in Wales was only ever meant to be 1 night on the way from England to catching the ferry to Ireland but we had to change plans and have three nights. Thank goodness for this as they were 3 of the best nights on our trip and one of the places I would definitely return to and stay for much longer. The scenery was just so beautiful and from what I have heard the southern parts have nothing compared to the beauty up in the north.

Our stay was in late September and the weather was just beautiful.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Peaceful, gorgeous scenery
  • Cons:The narrow little roads!
  • In a nutshell:If I ever get kicked out of Australia this is where I will move to!

    Great pages, we often go to Cardiff via the Heads of the Valley road, but never stop to look.

    Glad I found this page, it is lovely! Those old bridges are appealing, I especially like the ones where you get the nice reflection photo's.

    Amanda, gorgeous page about Wales. I visited the country twice by myself, but must admit that you have been to many places I haven't even heard about. :-)

    So glad you enjoyed my adopted country, specially "my" town My house looks out on the mountain in the Castle car park picture but is a bit nearer that dreaded double round about! Thanks for leading me to history of Brynhonddu too!

    Nice page on Wales. It looks like your B&B was a great find. Wales must be a grand place. After all, it is the home of one of the best entertainers of all time -- Tom Jones! Cheers, Bill
