We’ve neglected our blog lately, sorry! It’s been busy busy busy on site with no rest as the park gets quieter as there’s lots to do to prepare for winter.
We still have places to tell you about, and plenty of places we want to visit. We’ve also had some lovely invites from places to go, and we’ve not had the time to accept all of them this year but we will be back in 2018 and will do our best to include every one of them. Its been lovely to hear from so many of you that you have enjoyed reading about our trips and that we’ve managed to find a few spots that you hadn’t heard of! We will continue to seek out new finds and adventures. Feel free to drop by reception and ask us more details about any of the destinations.
Recently any days off we’ve had have been spent prepping for our departure and working on our van conversion. But over the year we’ve visited a few more places than we’ve had time to write about. So just to spread the word and give you a taster, here is a list of the other places not yet mentioned on our blog.
- Strata Florida – beautiful ruins full of fascinating history and stunning surroundings
- Pistyll Rhaeydr – huge magical waterfall entwined in myth and legend
- Lake Efrnwy – wonderful huge lake with activites, walks, boats and wild camping
- Dolfornwyn Castle – hidden ruined castle, the last frontier of Wales, worth seeking out
- Coed Y Brenin – ideal for mountain biking but great walks too
- Newcastle Emlyn Castle – another ruined castle tucked behind the town
- Castell y Bere – our favourite ruin so far, hidden in the most incredible scenery
- Tregaron Bog – a lovely boardwalk filled with nature and wildlife
- Llanfihangel-y-Creuddyn Church – a sweet little village church not far from Woodlands
- Teifi Pools – another world up in the mountains, definitely worth a visit
- Nant Y Moch Reservoir – super close to Woodlands and stunning walks and scenery
- Snowdonia – we had a quick day trip to see Snowdon, but will return to explore more and climb Snowdon!
We’re sure there’s more but we can’t remember! What we have done is made sure to always take the small roads, the little white roads on the map, to explore as much as possible even if we’re just going to town for the supermarket. That way we’ve stumbled across little villages, quaint little pubs and rounded the corner to unexpected jaw dropping views. We highly recommend the method (depending on the size of your vehicle of course!) Every turn is a picture postcard and we feel very lucky to have landed in such a beautiful part of the world.
So as we pack up for the end of the season and head off on to adventures further afield (we’re taking the van to France) we wish you a happy healthy winter, may you enjoy the festive season and we shall see you early next year!
“If all future sites we visit are as good as Woodlands then life will be perfect thanks for a great time”
