SUMMER HERD VISIT
This year's herd visit is to the Nanhoron Estate close to the north coast of Cardigan bay in north Wales on Wednesday 20th June 2018. It is a beautiful 5,000 acre estate and they run over 300 breeding females - of which approximately 50 are traditional. It is a wonderful part of the country with some stunning countryside - www.nanhoronestate.co.uk.
On the day the itinerary will be as follows:
10.30am - Arrival at the estate for tea and coffee followed by the Club meeting
1.00pm - Travel to a local pub where a buffet with tea and coffee has been booked - to be paid for individually
2.00pm - Back to the estate for a tour of many of their impressive facilities and to see as may cattle as we can fit in in the afternoon, followed by more tea and coffee
As the estate is so large it is likely that we will be finishing the tour later than usual herd visits, you might then decide to stay overnight nearby (or even stay the night before to reduce traveling on the day). If that is the case there are a couple of B&B's near Nanhoron in Llanbedrog, but with only a couple places to eat it has been suggested that Criccieth would be a better place to stay. It's a seaside town with all the corresponding B&B's that go with that territory, along with many eateries from hotels to fish and chips, and only 20 minutes from the estate.
Being a holiday destination, accommodation gets booked up quite quickly and in advance, so if you would like to join us for the herd visit it would be advisable to book your hotel/B&B early! Click here for a sample website offering B&B in the area, plus there are many more on line to explore.
In order that we can keep track of numbers for catering purposes please contact Susie Woods on 01568 750130 or email firstname.lastname@example.org once you are sure that you will be attending.
