And that's it for this year!

And that's it for this year!

We've just booked two more holidays for 2019. :D

For early June, we've booked an amazing fairytale cottage near Dolgellau in North Wales. This holiday is for the two of us and we'd like to continue where we left off on our week near Mount Snowdon in the autumn. We'd hoped to climb Cadair Idris during the week, but we realised it was just too far from where we were staying. It's very close to this little castle though! :D

Then, in the first week of the school summer holidays, we're taking the family (two daughters, two husbands and three grandchildren) to a considerably bigger cottage near Matlock in the Peak District. For us, this will be part family time and part walking holiday. I'm hoping we'll do a bit of the Pennine Way - at least as far as Kinder Scout anyway...

Both look ideal for purposes Dave. Love the look of the little Castle. :)

Both areas are favourites of mine. We did a couple of cottage holidays several years ago based in Eyam and toring/exploring the Peak District. I also did an "adventure" course many moons ago based in the Peak district and this involved Kinder Scout and hiking in direweather - and losing boots in the mud!

We also did one cottage holiday based near dolgellau and explored the Snowdon mountain railway - and few other little railways round that area.
