How to book
You now have two options for making your Farm Stay booking; either book direct with your Farm Stay host using the contact details in this brochure or visit their entry on our website, www.farmstaywales.co.uk. You will find that many properties now offer you the option to check availability before you place an enquiry and many Farm Stay hosts offer you the chance to book on-line there and then. Remember, Farm Stay UK is a NOT-FOR-PROFIT farmer’s co-operative so our operation can keep its prices as keen as possible by not paying agents or intermediaries. How to Book Your Stay
Your host offers a number of ways to contact them: By Phone Simply call the phone number offered in the brochure. By E-mail Use the e-mail address listed in the brochure or the e-mail link from their entry on the website. Please include your room requirements, party size and make up, and your preferred dates. On-line Go to www.farmstaywales.co.uk to see live availability. On-line booking is available at some properties and where offered you can book in a safe and secure manner. By Fax Use the fax number listed in the brochure.

Farm Stay Etiquette
Your host will advise you of: Prices and what they include. In the brochure they are shown as min/max. Payment terms and method of payment, deposit required and cancellation charges. Directions to the property (or see www.farmstaywales.co.uk). Suggested arrival and departure times. Please advise your host if these need to be rearranged as B&B’s do not always adhere to hotel hours. For self-catering, if on the odd occasion bed linen and towels are required or gas or electricity meters used.

Gold, Silver and Highly Recommended status
Some properties show a Gold, Silver or Highly Recommended Award and are awarded to a select number of properties that offer high and exceptional levels of cleanliness, quality and comfort, within their star grading by the National Tourist Boards or the AA. In addition, you may also see Breakfast Awards being displayed for the quality of the breakfast being offered by the National Tourist Boards or other local organisations.

Accessibility
Our members do their utmost to support accessible tourism, however the age and location of some of our properties can limit what can be achieved. The National Accessibility Scheme symbols are shown at: www.visitbritain.com/en/Accommodation/ Disabled-and-elderly/NationalAccessible-Scheme-symbols.htm For more information or assistance in finding accommodation for those with special needs contact Holiday Care on 0845 124 9971 or visit www.tourismforall.org.uk.

Quality Guaranteed
Farm Stay is very proud of the properties offered in its brochure. To ensure standards, all properties have been Quality Assessed under national grading schemes operated by the national tourism boards of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, or the AA. All of the schemes operate to the same standards and criteria. Our large campgrounds are also graded by the AA Pennants scheme. Unique properties which do not adhere to the traditional grading schemes have been inspected by Farm Stay Directors and are fully insured. Each B&B and self-catering establishment is awarded between 1 and 5 stars by the Quality Assessment scheme. Details of the schemes are shown below:
( (( ((( ((((
Simple, practical, no frills Well presented and well run Good level of quality and comfort Excellent standard throughout of luxury

By Post It still works! Same conditions as above.
All messages, whether by phone, fax or e-mail should receive a response within 24 hours.

Supporting the Environment
Many properties now work with national and green schemes to improve the sustainability of their properties for the benefit of future generations. Farm Stay is proud to recognise properties that already have been accredited with green awards and will show the letters Á in their symbols bar.

Special Requirements*
Please let your host know whether you require any special assistance. This may include dietary needs, special sleeping arrangements, parking for unusual vehicles or bikes, and arrangements for pets, if accepted. *You should not book On-line if your booking requires special facilities as we cannot guarantee your needs and we recommend contacting the owner to book direct.

Booking from Overseas
The international prefix for the UK is 44. When dialling from overseas, delete the first 0 and replace with 00 (or +) 44. For example 01271 336 141 becomes 00 44 1271 336 141.

Wales
There’s more magic in the coastline of Pembrokeshire’s National Park, with its superb beaches and cliffs, coastal walks and tiny islands like Caldey, with its monastery, or Skomer – alive with seals, puffins and other seabirds. Popular towns here include picturesque Fishguard, walled Tenby and St David’s, whose 12th-century cathedral lies concealed in a hollow to hide it from predatory eyes. To the east, the Brecon Beacons National Park brings yet more variety: its bare escarpments and mining valleys provide memorable views, and there are attractive little towns like nearby Hay-on-Wye, a world-famous centre for second-hand books. Just follow the valleys for a day out in Cardiff’s superb castle, museums and shops or maritime Swansea, where an excellent museum tells the story of Wales and the sea. Right on Swansea’s doorstep is the Gower Peninsular – a charmed corner of beaches, cliffs and smugglers coves beloved of Dylan Thomas, whose former home is open to the public along the coast at Laugharne.

Welcome to the land of the Celts, whose culture has influenced British history over 3,000 years. Farming communities are the very heartland of Wales, where old traditions live on and Welsh is still spoken in many homes. From the gentle greenery of mid Wales to the distinctive landscapes of the National Parks, the Welsh countryside brings a choice of scenery – and outdoor activities – right to the farmhouse door. The Snowdonia National Park, with its peaks, waterfalls and clear mountain streams takes its name from Mount Snowdon, whose 3000ft summit is scaled by a breathtaking railway. Other highlights of the park include picture-postcard Betws-y-Coed, Blaenau Ffestiniog – home of another scenic railway – and Harlech with its mighty castle, just one of 400 in Wales! Coastal attractions here in North Wales range from enchanting Portmeirion, a private village of architectural follies created by Clough Williams Ellis to Llandudno, complete with donkeys on the beach or the mystic Isle of Anglesey, beckoning from across the Menai Bridge.

Wales THE ISLE OF ANGLESEY – NORTH WALES COAST & BORDERLANDS

The Isle of Anglesey

North Wales Coast & Borderlands

View from Holyhead Mountain

Colwyn Castle

Regional Map 1 (back cover) The Isle of Anglesey has a lot to offer, starting with a 125-mile coastline strewn with stirring wildlife, cosy resorts, laid-back beaches and high-octane watersports. There’s a chance to polish up on your tongue-twisting double ‘ll’s and ‘ch’s, with the largely Welsh-speaking population to hand. After all that, grab some fresh-as-theycome seafood and a pint of ‘cwrw’and you’ll be ready to relax island-style. Champion, as the islanders might say.
1 LLANNERCH-Y-MEDD Map Ref: J10 DRWS-Y-COED Llannerch-y-Medd, Isle of Anglesey LL71 8AD Contact Mrs Jane Bown Tel 01248 470473 Email drwsycoed2@hotmail.com www.drwsycoedguesthouse.co.uk
Drws-y-Coed is a wonderful retreat on a large working farm with panoramic views of Snowdonia and countryside. Reputation for first-class accommodation with attention to detail, warm hospitality and excellent breakfasts. Interesting walks and Grade II* listed farmstead. Centrally located yet only 10 mins to beaches and 25 mins to Holyhead Port. Open all year.

Regional Map 2 (back cover) This Northern gateway to Wales is the perfect way to introduce visitors to the country. There are four coastal resorts and award-winning beaches of Llandudno, Colwyn Bay, Rhyl or Prestatyn. This area of North Wales certainly has some surprises up its sleeve: while Llangollen takes a surreal turn in the summer when traditionally-dressed groups from around the world visit the International Music Festival. Come see for yourself.

Regional Map 3 (back cover) The Snowdonia Mountains and Coast not only has the high-adrenalin challenges of the National Park but also the rural, seasidey charm of the Llyn Peninsula. Unleash the sports enthusiast in you, if windsurfing or a walk around the Llyn Peninsula seems too daunting, try golf or a quest to find ancient carp in the rocky mountain pools. There’s plenty of downtime to be had, grab a cuppa and scone at some of the National Trust houses.

Three Cliffs Bay, Cardiff

Regional Map 8 (back cover) This corner of Wales does have a fair bit of the urbane, from Dylan Thomas’ ‘ugly lovely’, always interesting Swansea to the compact and cosmopolitan cool of Cardiff, and not forgetting the rich industrial heritage of the valleys. You may find time among the museums, castles and Edwardian arcades to sink a refreshing pint of Welsh ale. Of course, there’s also a fair bit of rural finery to hand in this corner of the country.

Bluebell Woodland, Wye Valley

Regional Map 9 (back cover) It’s a tale of two valleys in this pretty area of Wales, with the pastoral Usk and wooded Wye both beloved of poets and artists alike. The southern gateway into Wales is a gentle experience, with strolls around pretty market towns, a gentle spot of walking or fishing and the time-ravaged sights of castles and abbeys. Those in the know will still come year after year for the sight of bluebell-scattered Tintern Abbey.
