Your London friends are very wrong. I love London and all of the UK. Wales is one of the most beautiful countries I have visited. I became hooked on the UK 10 years ago & have gone over every year since. In May of this year we spent a week in Mid Wales on Cardigan Bay & it was outstanding. Have spent time in the Snowdonia area & that was awesome also. Been to Betsy y coed, Porthmadog (spellings may be incorrect)LLanbader, Conway & each visit was wonderful. Wales seems to be the forgotten country. The people are great and the country is beautiful. We usually pick an area and rent a self catering cottage. In May we spent 7 days a Nuedd Farms just outside of New Quay. I would highly recommend it and I would definately return there. This was our third trip to Wales & I plan on returning. The language is very interesting & I was told it is the oldest language in the world.

Hi Nancy: the website for Ann Roberts' personal homepage is www.holyhead.com. She's not a travel agent or tour guide. She's just a Welsh native that is interested in preserving the history of her town and stirring up some economic interest in Holyhead.

She arranged for a driver/guide named Steve Roberts to meet us and take us all around North Wales for a day and he was fantastic. We were able to see so much more than we would have on our own. And we had two teenagers who found him very interesting and entertaining. All in all , it was a great day. And Ann did not ask for a booking fee or anything. She even wanted to have us over to her house for tea and a chat, but we didn't have the time. Hope you can check out her webpage. She's an absolute delight.

IF you have trouble acessing it, I entered the words " Holyhead, Wales and Ann" into a google search and her link popped up. Good luck. Maria

Wales is one of the most beautiful countries I have every been to (and I have been to alot) You will love it. WE took the Brecon mountain steam train it was beautiful, the scenery was incredible. I really recommend it if it is still running.
