Angel and Grave

Comments Off on Angel and Grave

Don’t worry, you haven’t just stumbled on a new heavy-metal rock band.  The title refers to the Angel Hotel in Abergavenny and, of course us – for those who have forgotten their Welsh lessons, Bedd (as in Nant-y-Bedd) is the Welsh for a grave (a bronze age one on the top of the mountain behind the house!).

Actually, Angel & Grave sounds a bit like one of those currently very trendy shops or holiday companies who seem to delight in putting a couple of seemingly random words together!  But this is a genuine collaboration – read on!

Having just taken my Mother to the Angel for her 100th Birthday (yes, you did read that right), we had an e-mail from Jo, their Sales & Marketing Manager, the very next day.  Coincidence or what?  Well it was, sheer coincidence.

As the pre-eminent hotel in Abergavenny, indeed recently voted the Best in Wales, the Angel fits nicely with our recently acquired Wales’ Favourite Garden.

Amongst other suggestions, Jo proposed setting up a number of Special Breaks at the hotel to tie in with some of our Workshops and Events, along the lines of stay at the Angel, with breakfast and dinner and attend one of the courses as part of the package.

Jo chose three; Wild Weaving with Jess Tanner, Blueprints with Ruth Barnes Richards and Sue’s own Wild Gardening.  You can see the outcome at www.angelabergavenny.com/special-offers.

So if you fancy a night of pampering at the Angel and an instructive and enjoyable day at Nant-y-Bedd Garden, look no further.  Or maybe you have a richly deserving relative or friend who you’ve been wondering what to buy them, well now you know!

We and Jess and Ruth, are all thrilled to be involved in this.
