Colourful nasturtiums in the garden at Llanerchaeron, Ceredigion, on a wet day in August 2012…

It’s November already and I still haven’t finished sharing my holiday snaps from August! On a wet day (and there were many) we visited the National Trust property at Llanerchaeron, in Ceredigion near the middle of Wales’s west coast.

We went there to take the Vale of Rheidol steam railway back down the valley – but (more…)

Gravestones at the Church of the Holy Cross, Mwnt, Ceredigion

Although I haven’t yet finished showing you all my pictures from Dorset this summer, we also visited West Wales, so I thought I’d start sharing those memories, too.

First up is Mwnt, a little place on the coast of south Ceredigion, four miles or so from the county town of Cardigan and not far from the Pembrokeshire border.

It is most famous for (more…)
