Visit Cambrian Mountains

This year, the Summer Solstice falls on the 21st of June. This means two things: 1) that date will offer up more daylight than any other during the whole year and 2) there couldn’t be a better day for soaking up the sun during a relaxed walk in the Cambrian Mountains.

If you’d like to share the special day with other walking enthusiasts, take place in the ‘Pumlumon Summer Solstice Walk’, which offers a magnificent sunrise on the highest peak in Ceredigion, Mid Wales and the Cambrian Mountains. The walk costs £10 per person, and for further information, email info@hinterlandwalks.co.uk or call 07748 675798.

The new lambs are starting to arrive at Doliago. Becca’s ewe aptly named ‘Fat Girl’ has just had twins again. Spring has arrived. Life on the farm is going to start to get really busy but there is nothing more satisfying than seeing new born calves and lambs coming into the world.

Visit Cambrian Mountains

nanteos_emyr_williamsOn Saturday the 18th of October, award-winning artist Emyr William will be giving a mid-exhibition talk at The Gallery in Nanteos Mansion in a private viewing of his works “Made in Wales, Made of Wales”.

Just got back from work and it’s such a beautiful evening here in the Cambrian Mountains. just right for the hill race in Rhayader tonight. Carnival week is well underway, at home the campsite has been mowed and I’ve decided to leave the raspberries, that is was going to pick to the birds. Being truthful the reality is that they beat me to it! I’ll wait for September when there’s always a good few and less competition.

 

This year for the first time in years you could pitch a tent or park a caravan just about anywhere on the farm, and enjoy sitting out on the field watching the sun go down behind the hill – magic
