Only nine miles from Aberystwyth lies Penrhos Park. Probably best known for its golf course, this family owned and run leisure complex offers much, much more and Huw recently caught up with the one and only John Pugh-Evans to find out about Penrhos’ history, the family that run it and, of course, that iconic 17th hole!

So John, good to see you as always! Now I understand that Penrhos Park enjoyed a rather large birthday recently?

Yes, we’ve recently celebrated twenty-five years at the golf club. We held a golf day for our members and booked X-Factor star Joe Wheelan as entertainment. It was a great day. We also celebrated 50 years at the caravan site last year so I think we’re all partied out!

Nia Marshalsay is a well-known and well-respected model from Aberystwyth but is now turning her hand to presenting a TV show about horses. Huw recently caught up with her and was champing at the bit to find out more.

So Nia, tell me a bit about yourself growing up. I was born in Pontypool and moved to Llanddeiniol with my family when I was three. I went to Myfenydd primary school and then onto Penweddig. Neither Mum nor Dad spoke Welsh but felt it was very important that my sister and I attended Welsh schools. I didn’t realise I would be so grateful for this later on in my life. We are a very ‘outdoorsy’ family and I can’t remember my life before horses!
