  • When guests are looking for a day out, one spot we always recommend is Elan Valley.
.
40 minutes drive over the hills and you arrive at 72 square miles of lakes, babbling brooks and ancient woods. .
These reservoirs were created to supply Birmingham with water and still do today 🙌
.
Fabulous walks, easy family biking and challenging off road trails. I’ve been coming here all my life and we are always rushing to catch the cafe at the end of the day 🙈 .
We sit exhausted but happy. This is our view as we savour the best cake for miles... 🤗😋

  • My Saturday plans didn't go ahead as planned in my head on Friday ( that was a mouthful and a half😂.)
I intended on setting an alarm for 4:30am to enable me to get up, travel and hike the summit of Pen-Y-Fan to catch sunrise however, Friday evening came and I was worn out. The thought of a 4:30am alarm was gruelling and off-putting so, I decided not to put my alarm on but instead was going to start my day as and when my body naturally woke it's self. Typically, I woke up at 5:15.... I never wake up at this time, anyway, I got up and started my day. Flask of tea made, hiking boots on, lunch in the bag and off I went. Something told me I just knew that I was going to have an amazing day.
I obviously missed sunrise so opted to go somewhere else but I didn't know what. I had no plans and no ideas. I had a look at my map and came across some new places. I was swayed to a waterfall walk. The sun was out and I just wanted to see some beautiful waterfalls.
I looked briefly at the map in the carpark that showed the walking route and set off. I took paths that weren't paths (if you know what I mean 😂) and explored this new and beautiful place by myself.
I came across absolutely stunning views and waterfalls and spoke to anyone and everyone that I passed. The one thing I noticed above all- the smile on everyone's faces. You could just tell that you and them were having the most amazing time making memories, exploring and adventuring.
I just had the most wonderful time ☺

  • If you bagged a copy of our 2019 calendar (and have skipped ahead a few months already!) you might recognise this scene - @matprice, the man behind the calendar pic, has returned to capture it in all its snowy glory. Beautiful!

  • If you've driven along the A487 road in Wales, which goes from Dolgellau to Machynlleth, you'll know what a beautiful view you're greeted with when heading down the valley. Each time I've been on my way home from North Wales, I'm always in awe of the view, and on some promising days, I've travelled along this road whilst the famously known 'Mach Loop' is happening. There's nothing more thrilling than seeing aircrafts fly at low level... (Quite distracting when you're driving a car to be honest 😂) Anyway, back to this photo.... On Monday, I had finally veered right off the busy road and stopped at this gorgeous lake and boy oh boy, what an absolute spectacular view 😍 I was literally blown away with the beauty of it.
Standing here soaking up the views, I wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else in the world.
*Question and feel free to share your stories. Have you ever been somewhere and in that moment, you wouldn't want to be anywhere else in the world? No? Shame. Yes? What a feeling it is.

  • Yesterday's high tide threw rocks, boulders and driftwood up on to the prom. Talk about a big clean-up job!

  • Does anyone remember this cracker of a sunset from last year? They say we should get some more like this over the next few days. Fingers crossed! 🤞

Our churches hold some of Britain’s most evocative treasures. 
1) The rare medieval wall painting of Doom at Patrishow, for instance, depicts the skeletal figure of Time holding a scythe, hour glass and spade - a reminder of life’s short span. According to legend, the painting has been covered with whitewash many times over the years, but each time mysteriously reappears.

2) The ancient font at Defynnog near Sennybridge, with the only runic inscription of Wales. Or the medieval cresset stone at Brecon Cathedral, which contains more holes for candles than any other in the country. Thirty, if you’re counting.

3) The last dragon is caught sleeping underground in the grounds  of Llanfihangel Cefnllys, Llanfihangel Rhydithon (Dolau), Llanfihangel Nant Melan and Llanfihangel Cascob. 
4) Gwastedyn Church Trail, which begins and ends in Rhayader, uses mountain paths, quiet lanes and old railway lines to join seven historic churches.

5) "St Melangell's Church, Pennant Melangell is a small church located on a minor road which joins the B4391 near the village of Llangynog. It houses the restored shrine of Saint Melangell] reputed to be the oldest Romanesque shrine in Great Britain." #discoverpowys #discoverwales  #church #takemetochurch #discovering #explore #powys #midwales #midwalesmyway #igooutdoors #illustration #illustrator #dragon #princess #history #mythsandlegends #welsh #cymru #discovercymru #top5 #tuesdaymotivation #tuesday #pennantmelangell
