I have been in Wales with my wife and son all last week. We were staying in a cottage near Dolgellau. The cottage was in a lovely setting and we had glorious weather. We climbed Cadair Idris, visited crazy Portmeirion (setting for the cult 1960s series The Prisoner), walked besides waterfalls, rode on a narrow gauge steam train, strolled beneath the giant clipped yews of Powis Castle Gardens and saw so much wildlife. It was great.

But now its back to the real world. . .


  1. As a Welshman, I am a fierce evangelist for a holiday cottage company called Under The Thatch ( Not sure if you know of them, but they are well worth checking out. They are not-for-profit saviours of crumbling, beautiful Welsh cottages. I don't even work for them; I just love them!

  2. Hey that website is great. There are some lovely looking places there. Thanks for passing that on. It makes me want to go back immediately.
