Tropical Summer Flowers

You may have guessed it already but here at the Oakeley Arms we’re a bit mad about the blooms…. blooms of flowers that is!

The Wyching Hour

“A quart of ale is a dish for a king” said William Shakespeare, and who are we to disagree? Good old fashioned British beer is no longer the realm of beer-bellied old farmers with flat caps. It has enjoyed something of a revival in recent years, resurrected from its dreary image and shaken up to…

North Wales Artists

The beauty of the Welsh Coast and Snowdonian hills has been inspiring artists and painters for centuries. Today we explore the North Wales artists who were all influenced by their coastal surroundings.

Beautiful Bluebells

This May, the Welsh coast will be lit up in glorious hues of blue – not from the crystal clear waters, but from the stunning displays of bluebells that appear on clifftops and woodlands along the coastline. “The Bluebell is the sweetest flower that waves in summer air. Its blossoms have the mightiest power to…
