The next stop on our UK trip was to drive from Salisbury to stay with my sister and her husband at their relatively new home in Tywyn Wales, which they are in the process of renovating as a lovely home for their retirement years.
The pace of life there is definitely more relaxed than Salisbury, where they lived before. Tywyn was not unknown to them as they had lived in the town before, about thirty years ago in fact on the army base. We had spent a holiday there with them and remembered how beautiful the area was and taking a ride on the The Talyllyn Railway. Of course this trip it was mid winter and rather different but it was still lovely to explore the area and spend some quality time together.
Tywyn is a small town and seaside resort on the Cardigan Bay coast of Gwynedd in north Wales and it has everything one needs for town living within easy walking distance including a cinema and a library. There are also excellent rail connections if you need to visit other parts of the country with out driving. However I think a huge draw for my sister and her husband was the fact that they are also minutes on foot from the beach and the welsh hills.
