Spring is right around the corner, a glorious time of renewal and rebirth. The fact that all of nature is always in the process of transformation is most apparent in the spring – everywhere we turn we see evidence of the cycle of new beginnings.
But don’t forget spring is not just a noun – it’s also a verb, meaning to leap forward over obstacles.
So, I thought I’d let you know what’s happening here at our B&B and in the Brecon Beacons this March – the 1st month of spring – take a leap, come and enjoy the open space and fresh air.
1st March – St David’s Day.
A celebration of the life of St David, the patron saint of Wales who was born near to where the city of St Davids is today and where you’ll find the beautiful St Davids Cathedral. To mark the day, Welsh people around the world wear one or both of Wales’s national emblems – a daffodil and a leek.
7th – 15th March – Crickhowell walking festival.
Nine days of fabulous guided walks in and around the Black Mountains situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park in Mid-Wales
16th – 22nd March – National B&B week.
An annual event which aims to raise the profile of the independent accommodation sector in the UK and encourage holidaymakers to book a stay in a B&B over the course of the week and throughout the year.
My plea to you here is, do please book direct. Make sure you are at www.thelodgebreconbandb.co.uk, when you’re looking to stay, as some of the OTAs ‘appear’ to be us, when in fact, they are not. And, should you happen across a site that is running a promotion and their offer is different to what you see on my website, then give me a shout and I will always match it for you.
22nd March – Mother’s Day.
Why not say thank you to that someone special by spending some precious time together as a family in beautiful surroundings.
Stroll along the Monmouth and Brecon Canal….
or take a more energetic walk up the Brecon Beacons to Pen y Fan, the highest peak, or enjoy views from the Sugar Loaf in the Black Mountains.
Perhaps some quiet time bird watching on Llangorse Lake from the bird hide at Llangasty would suit you more.
Combine your activities with a special afternoon tea or dinner at one of the restaurants or historic hotels in the National Park.
29th March – Daylight saving begins.
2020 is ‘The Year of Outdoors’ here in Wales, what better time to enjoy the endless outdoor places on offer here in the Brecon Beacons National Park.
So come on, dust out the cobwebs and come on over – we have an abundance of activities on offer here in the Brecon Beacons.
