Wales 2020

With the lockdown due to Covid-19 going on until June in Wales, we decided to holiday in Wales only after this.

 

We went for a short break to mid Wales on a CL site (max 5 units allowed) near Cilycwm which is just north of Llandovery. There was only 1 other person there which was good.

Boardwalk at the RSPB Gwenffrwddinas.  It is from the main small car park along near the river Towy. At the end of the boardwalk there is a circular path

Great natural wood bench next to the river.

Not only is this a beautiful bird reserve but Twm Sion Cati (the Welsh Robin Hood) lived in this area for many years eventually getting a Royal Pardon from Queen Elizabeth 1.

Twm Sion Cati’s hideout can be found by taking the circular walk and about 1/2 mile from the end of the boardwalk take the side walk upwards.

It must have been a very wet hideout as water was coming out here in the entrance. You could also see the sky just around this rock.

Rustic bird table crafted from the local wood at the entrance to the RSPB.

These unusal looking sheep are called Texal Blues. They were one of two different types of sheep kept on the CL farm which also had Zwartbles from the Netherlands.

Visit to Llyn Brianne reservoir further along the road at the highest point. There was a small car park and tarmac road around the reservoir. Access to this was through a footpath swing gate.Further around the reservoir are 2 other small car parks to the north.Whilst driving around the reservoir we came across the road blocked by 3 logging lorries. Then to our amusement 3 men came running down the hill to drive them away as they had been enjoying the vista!

Very close to the CL was a further forestry area Cwm Rhaeadr with waterfalls, but unfortunatly in was closed for the month of July for logging – next time! In the forest was a mountain bike trail classified as a red trail. It ius 6.7 km as believed to be one of the best in the UK. There was also a circular ytrail designed for mobility use.
