Visiting Pili Palas, Anglesey

Visiting Pili Palas, Anglesey

Pili Palas is a farm/animal family attraction which is located in Anglesey. We were based in Bangor so this was a short 15-minute drive for us, simply crossing the Menai Strait and you're pretty much there. 

To describe it I'd call it a secret gem, we might have gone at a quiet time but it's really worth a visit and we loved it. We got there at 10 am so for the first 15 minutes we pretty much had the place to ourselves.

A Day Out at Welsh Mountain Zoo

A Day Out at Welsh Mountain Zoo

On route to our weeks stay in North Wales we planned a stop off at the Welsh Mountain Zoo, this was midway between Stoke-on-Trent and our hotel. 

As the name suggests this is high up in the mountains that surround Colwyn Bay and to get there you do feel like you are driving into the clouds. Narrow roads take you to the entrance gate and before you park up you have to pay the entrance fee to the staff in the wooden huts. Parking is free and plenty of it.

Walking for our lunch

Walking for our lunch

Nothing makes you enjoy a meal more than when you've earned it and that was true for our meal we had in a place called The Old Inn in St Breward on the Bodmin Moors. We've stayed at Coombe Mill for the past three years and every time we make sure that we visit this place as the food is yummy, the portions huge and the place very welcoming. It's claim to fame is the fact that it is the highest inn in Cornwall.
