Gwynt y Mor – Fabulous Homes With Luxurious Living


There’s nothing quite like living by the sea. For eons, mankind has forged a great love for the seafront, and it has been referenced many times in all forms of media. From old poems which wistfully describe the wonder of the sea to modern day television, the sea has long since captured mankind’s attention and devotion—and we are thrilled to announce that a brand new development of luxury apartments for sale North Wales.

Gwynt y Mor is the first offering from a talented new build house developer in Conwy named Brenig Homes, and the site, if anything, is utterly outstanding.

Despite being newcomers to the North Wales housing market. Brenig Homes have certainly made a splash with the wonderfully named Gwynt y Mor (or Sea Breeze, in English) which manages to do the impossible – be of a solid build quality with enough considerate attention to detail and high quality interiors to match the quality of the land of which is it built upon.

The devil is in the detail, and it certainly shows with this fledgling housing developer’s first attempt – put simply, Gwynt y Mor knocks larger, more established developers’ efforts out of the park.

Saying that, Gwynt y Mor does have a single drawback.

Gwynt y Mor looks to be a solid investment for those looking to put resources into the property market – but it also looks like an investment you might have trouble parting with. Make no mistake – you certainly will sell your little piece of Gwynt y Mor when the time comes, here’s absolutely no doubt about it – but you might find yourself attached to the place.

And why not? Occupying magnificent land and boasting unparalleled views of Rhos on Sea harbour, as well as occupying one of the cutest little towns in North Wales is absolutely no mean feat, and Gwynt y Mor manages to combine truly luxurious living with fantastic views, positioning, and a superb build quality which is making waves in the North Wales area, giving much larger developers a run for their money.

Dog Training vs Canine Behaviourists


When you’re dealing with a problem dog, it can be a jarring experience for both you and the dog in question. Sometimes, friendly advice from your peers and books on dog ownership simply don’t cut it – especially when the problem is pressing and could cause a very real possibility of injury to yourself, your dog, or even someone else in the future. When you’ve decided that enough is enough, you need the help of a professional in order to enable you to trust your dog again- fortunately there is help to hand in very many different forms - Dog Training among the most effective.  

Some owners tend to prefer the services canine behaviourists offer, and some prefer dog training. There are some that will try anything, as long as it works. With that considered, what exactly is the best port of call for you and your dog?

There are canine behaviourists and dog training centres, but which works the best for you? Which can give you the highest chance of success? That can be a pretty tough question in itself of course. For instance, a lot of the services a dog training centre and a canine behaviourist offers can vary, and are very much geared toward the owner rather than the dog in question, with canine behaviourists generally tending to visit the owner and dog’s home on a residential basis, and dog training generally requiring that the owner and the dog travel to their facility.

However, there are outliers which can supply absolutely everything which is needed. Specialist dog training centres such as Kelford Dog Training Centre which is tucked away in the pretty Welsh countryside offer completely bespoke services which are intended solely for the dog’s benefit, though of course don’t spare any detail for the owners.

For instance, Kelford Dog Training provide bespoke dog training which is conducted by staff which are qualified in both canine and human psychology, allowing you and your dog to see eye-to-eye and eliminate unwanted behaviours such as aggression or other nervous behaviours via understanding and retraining.

Kelford Dog Training Centre provides a number of services which are tailored to your convenience, as well. As you’re working hard to understand your dog, you’ll be put up in supremely luxurious private accommodation in the heartlands of this beautiful area, and enjoy long trips to the nearby Welsh town of Llangollen and to the nearby forests which allow you unforgettable, entirely beautiful scenery in order to relax and unwind with your best friend.


Advantages of Wood Burning Stoves over Other Types of Heating


Every year winter hits us hard and the long winding cold spell well and truly hits us for a period of several months. Each time we have to cuddle up with our blankets, put our heating on full blast and ensure the cold spell. Uncomfortable and expensive!


There is a better way to deal with the cold time of the year, and now is the time to start considering your options and making plans to avoid another cold and costly winter. Instead of paying a fortune on your heating bills, a one time purchase of a Charnwood wood burning stove could be the key to a cosy winter.


There are a plethora of benefits to keep your home pleasantly warm with wood burning stoves, and this is why.


Cost efficiency


We all know that the price of energy associated with heating is only getting higher and higher. Heating our homes this way has become an expensive exercise that we have to endure every year. The actual long term cost of a wood burning stove and the materials required to run it are far less in the long run than typical heating strategies.


Cosy warmth


The type of heat you could expect to enjoy through a wood burning stove is far more cosy and natural than that of the heat produced through radiators. You can feel the warm blanket brushing across your body as your wood burning stove hits its top gear.


Energy independency


Energy sources such as electricity, gas and oil should not be taken for granted. Gas and oil are non-renewable energy sources that mean they are going to run out one day, since electricity has to be produced largely through associated methods. This suggests that it is unrealistic for prices to stay the same in the future. Installing a wood burning stove is future-proofing your home, whilst benefitting your own home through self-dependence.


Reliability


The climate is ever changing and putting our existing methods and sources at risk. Power is slowly becoming more unreliable and if you were to experience a cut during the winter months, you would be sure to have a cold few days! A great thing about wood burning stoves is that they are very reliable, ensuring that you always have access to some warmth.


Environmentally friendly


Another fantastic benefit of wood burning stoves is that in contrary to fossil fuels, wood fuel is carbon neutral, meaning that wood burning stoves don’t increase the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Any carbon dioxide emitted is replaced by new trees that are growing as we speak, since they are able to absorb it and re-release oxygen.

One of the most highly recommended types perfect for your home are the Charnwood wood burning stoves, which can offer you longevity, quality and cost efficiency for the next several years.

Organised Cupboards - The secret for many in keeping an organised space is keeping organised storage solutions.
