Glyndwr Vineyard

On Wednesday 25th October 2017 we will be taking a coach from the Glen-Yr-Afon House Hotel to the Glyndwr Vineyard.

The visit will include a glass of sparkling wine on arrival, followed by a personally conducted, informative tour of the vineyard to include the various aspects of viticulture and the development of the family-run vineyard, with plenty of opportunity for questions! Before leaving the vineyard we will also be sampling a home-cooked buffet to include a selection of wines to taste before returning to the hotel.

Glyndwr Vineyard is the oldest and largest established vineyard in Wales. The current owners pioneered the revival of viticulture in Wales, establishing Glyndwr Vineyard in 1979, making it the oldest family estate in Wales.

With the experience of 35 years playing an important role in the current success and reputation of the vineyard, the owners have built up an extensive network of outlets throughout Wales including Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, the Celtic Manor Resort, Glen-yr-Afon Hotel, and numerous family run delis from St David’s in Pembrokeshire to Wally’s in Cardiff.

Now, two generations are working together blending the vineyard’s heritage with innovation. They are passionate about their home and surroundings and the important bond between nature and the wine produced.

Their menagerie of chickens, ducks and wild pheasants roam the vineyard, hedges are left to grow wild to encourage bird life and the vines are treated with organic material.

The adjoining lovely gardens have been open to the National Garden Scheme and there are ponds, woodland areas and orchards containing a number of old British apple trees, which make Glyndwr’s own unique and delicious cider.

The cost per person will be £60. Please contact Reception on 01291 672302.


Blenheim Palace

Thursday 16th November 2017

On Thursday 16th November 2017 we will be taking a coach trip to the festively decorated Blenheim Palace to give guests the opportunity to explore the palace, park and gardens which have been awarded World Heritage Status.

Blenheim Palace, a Grade I listed building, was home to the 12th Duke of Marlborough and his family and the birth place of Sir Winston Churchill. Today the palace is home to one of the most important and extensive collections in Europe, which includes portraits, furniture, sculpture and tapestries. The picture-perfect British stately home sits among more than 2000 acres of extraordinary landscaped Parkland and Formal Gardens which includes a Great Lake and the ancient oaks in High Park.

The day will coincide with their living Craft Fayre, an ideal opportunity to get you into the Christmas spirit! There will be a series of large marquees set-up in the Great Court of the Palace to house over 130 stalls of high end craft gifts, jewellery and a food hall – providing a great start to your Christmas shopping!

The cost would be £45.00 per person (£42.50 Concessions) and would include the following:

7.30 – 8.00am Coffee, toast and croissants prior to departing the hotel.
