We launched a little competition a few weeks ago, asking for photos of your UTT Winter holidays. We were not disappointed and Kayleigh’s photo of Cae Bach won! She wrote,
“This was from our holiday last November. We had the most amazing weekend when we stayed in Cae Bach, waking up on cold crisp sunny winter mornings to that view was just incredible! The sun shone for pretty much the entire weekend, it was glorious. It was the perfect weekend and still remains one of our favourite holidays together.”
Here are all of the entries.

It was such a beautiful day here in Ceredigion today that we took the opportunity to take the shots of Glan yr Avon, a potential new property for UTT The owners have done an amazing job of restoring this riverside thatched cottage into a warm, stylish, comfortable home (and holiday let!) – Can’t wait to get visitors feed back – it is just gorgeous!
We do like a “housey” book at Under the Thatch and with Christmas coming, we thought would share a few that would make great gifts. Do you have any favourites you could add to our list?

We spent yesterday photographing a lovely New UTT (in the making)
It is a one night house (Ty unnos in Welsh) similar to that of Ty Unnos which is also on our books www.underthethatch.co.uk/tyunnos In the 18th century a Welsh tradition existed for the homeless of Wales, or anyone who wanted a plot of ground but couldn’t afford to buy it, they could claim a patch of common land by erecting a house on it as long as it was erected between sunset and sunrise.
The owner has spent many years collecting local artwork and sourcing contemporary furniture to fit in with the traditional feel of the cottage – I think it works don’t you? It won’t be long until you can book this stylish, cosy retreat for two, which overlooks the Preseli Mountains – So keep an eye out as we’ll be launching it soon…
Our Krakow flats do so very well… that we thought we’d take a trip to another historic city break destination in Poland…Gdansk on the Baltic sea. Perhaps a good spot for a UTT flat? See our existing Polish UTTs here:
