Gregynog — a list

I went to stay in an old country home called Gregynog for the second time this weekend. Here is a list of things it had:

Massively pretty grounds that I had 0 time to explore

An antique toilet which we were forbidden to use

Pianos littered around everywhere

A shower with no working light and that had two temperatures — boiling hot and freezing cold.

Around 40 awkward Computer Science students

A bar in the basement

Tiny meals

Weak Wi-Fi

Cake and tea


Books everywhere

a ridiculous number of beds

An all in one cassette and CD player

A dog

Window sills that were impossible to sit on

A toilet that felt like it was going to flush me away

A room that was far too small and made me panic when I woke up

Slippy floors

Chairs in bathrooms

An organ

Not much sleep

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
