In memory of my Grandfather Daniel Falvey, who served his country in the Great War, was shot and wounded in the leg, and was captured/rescued  by German troops, was treated for his injuries by them and was sent home after the end of the Great War to father 11 children (32 grandchildren) and was a respected worker in the local Swansea Corporation.  

And in thanks to my paternal Grandfather William Howells b. 1892 (left), and his two brothers, Lawrence (centre) and Stanley Howells (right) pictured below and their kid brother Sam Howells (sent home aged 15)  - all from Port Talbot - who served in the Royal Horse Artillery throughout the Great War and came home safely. Grampa William later worked at Velindre Wagon Works in Port Talbot and had eight grand children.  His brother in law Great Uncle William Croke, from Port Talbot/Resolven 
served and died (aged 19) as a stretcher bearer at the Great Passchendaele offensive in the Great War.

2. During our "Weekly bookings only" period, i.e. between March to November incl. guests may by all means, within a single booked week, stay for a shorter period which suits them (e.g. arrive slightly later or depart slightly earlier within the booked week's stay to suit their needs).
