Guestbook

Fabulous views at Straw Cottage - the perfect wedding anniversary break. Great weather - skinny dipped in the stream and reminisced on the tree swing - I was a child again. Elan Valley in the sunshine - stunning. Today walked up Pen y Fan in atrocious rain and wind, back snuggled by the stove eating chilli and drinking red wine. Thank you.
