The best place to see dolphins in Wales

Cardigan Bay in Wales is said to have the biggest population of dolphins in Britain, and one of the best places to see them is from the town of New Quay. This was a spot we visited back in 2015, taking a dolphin viewing boat trip which wasn’t very riveting. But I remember the boat…

Quarries, Sunsets and Boating in Pembrokeshire

We left the Pembrokeshire coast and headed inland to the Preseli Hills. It had been grey and drizzly all day and clouds were coating the tops of the hills like icing sugar on a cake. It seemed impossible but the clouds started turning pink and we realised we could be in for a cracking sunset….

Exploring Pembrokeshire’s coastline | Wales

We arrived in the colourful walled town of Tenby, a place we were very fond of on our previous visit 6 years ago. The town has rows of pastel coloured houses that look like a pack of refresher sweets. On either side of the town are beautiful beaches with crystal clear water lapping the shores….

Rhossili Bay and the Gower Peninsular | Wales

We were under the impression that it was a bank holiday weekend, so we thought arriving at Rhossili Beach on the Gower Peninsular would be fine at 5pm on the Monday. We’ve visited this area before but thought it would be nice to return but we regretted our decision instantly. It was HEAVING with people….

The western Brecon Beacon’s and Llyn Y Fan Fach

We really felt like we wanted to find a quiet spot for a few days to relax so we headed to the western corner of Brecon Beacons National Park. A fairly narrow lane wiggled it’s way up and down some hills to a beautiful location beside a river, perfect. There were two other vans camping…

Exploring Waterfall Country | Brecon Beacon’s, Wales

We were excited to visit the ‘waterfall country’ of Brecon Beacons as we’d never been there before. The first area we explored was the Four Waterfalls Hike which we needed to access via some country lanes. We passed one carpark but I knew there was another one closer to the hike so we headed for…

Exploring Brecon Beacon’s National Park

The weather was miserable and rainy so we decided to move on to the Talybont Reservoir area. We found a narrow lane to drive down where we hoped to camp that evening. It was only wide enough for one car and there weren’t any passing places for the 800m distance. I know it’s not too…

Cheddar Gorge and the Welsh Border

We didn’t spend long in Somerset, mainly because we were excited to get to Wales. But we did visit some family while we waited for yet another bad weather period with 50mph winds to pass over, and we did a little detour to Cheddar to visit the famous gorge. We parked up in the little…

Hiking and wild swimming in Dartmoor National Park | Cornwall

Our first stop in Dartmoor National Park was a hike to Black Tor and the Meldon Reservoir. The weather was very iffy and it didn’t take long for the rain to catch up with us. We hid under some trees but the rain was so heavy we were hardly getting any protection. We decided that…
