Drive to South Wales, arriving late afternoon at the Ivy Bush Royal Hotel. 4 nights stay - dinner, bed and breakfast, plus 2 lunches. Settle in with a welcoming cream tea and then enjoy fizzy cocktails and canapés with your fellow guests followed by dinner. Entertainment is provided each evening.


Day 2 Christmas Eve

A trip to the Gower Peninsula - the scenery is beautiful whatever time of year, and to Mumbles, on Swansea Bay before we have time in Swansea itself for last minute shopping. This evening after dinner we have Christmas carols with the piano. For those wishing to attend Midnight Mass St Peter’s Church is just a short walk away and well worth a visit.

Day 3 Christmas Day

Join Father Christmas for coffee and unwrap your presents around the tree. Lunch on this day is always special, with traditional roast turkey and all the seasonal trimmings. Afterwards spend the afternoon around the hotel, with board games available and tea and cake after the Queen’s speech. Tonight we have an informal buffet dinner followed by a film.

Watch the wild people of Tenby taking their annual dip in the sea - for charity, of course. We return to the hotel for lunch. After dinner we have our final night of entertainment

Our base for this Christmas Holiday – new for 2018 - is the pleasant market town of Carmarthen, in South West Wales and a hotel which is always highly rated by the guests we have taken there. Join us for a few days away and enjoy a delightful combination of traditional entertainment and excursions to the Gower Peninsula and along the Pembrokeshire Coast to Tenby.




The 3 star rated Ivy Bush Royal Hotel is within walking distance of Carmarthen town centre and was once a favourite retreat for Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton. Sympathetically modernised, the hotel retains its old world charm blended with modern day facilities. All bedrooms are en suite, and all have television, telephone, hairdryer and tea & coffee making facilities. The hotel has a lift.
