Day 1

Depart from home travelling to Wales arriving late afternoon at the Ivy Bush Royal Hotel. Your 4 nights stay includes 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 during your stay.


Day 2

After breakfast we enjoy a ride out to the Gower Peninsular 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

Merry Christmas! 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 a relaxing 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.

Day 4

Out and about this morning as we visit Saundersfoot and the ancient walled town of Tenby, one of South Wales' best known resorts. Explore the town, with its many little side streets or take a stroll to the harbour. 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.
