A two night break away with Alex from Saturday 8th September 2018 to Monday 10th to celebrate our 30th anniversary of friendship and since we started university in 1988 at Aberystwyth. We stay at the university’s best student accommodation at Fferm Penglais, two ensuite rooms (£42 per room per night, good value) in a six bedroom flat with kitchen/living room area (building 4, flat complex D1). This really makes the break extra special. The weather isn’t great with some heavy drizzle and murk on the Saturday. I collect Alex from Ludlow train station at 10.20am. With bad weather and the food festival taking place in the town, we decide to continue with the 2 hour drive to Aberystwyth arriving at 12.30pm. We enjoy a light lunch at a small cafe called the Treehouse (recommended by my friend Dave).
