Finally we are experiencing some spring like weather and as a result this is a great time to visit the Dyfi Valley. Swallows have made their epic journey back to the UK, our first have arrived and are taking up residence in the barn again. Sand martins are passing through and goldfinches and siskins have returned to the garden. The pond is teeming with tadpoles and the lambs are certainly enjoying the longer days. We understand one of the ospreys has returned to its nest on the Dyfi Estuary. Everyone is hoping its mate will also visit again this year and breed successfully.
Away from nature this area is a great place to stay if you are interested in trains. Close to us we have the Rheidol Valley Route, Tal-y-Llyn Railway, Welshpool to Llanfair Careinion and the even smaller Fairbourne Railway. For a good day out check out Arriva Trains Wales who are offering rail tickets to Portmadoc and then a trip on the renowned Ffestiniog Railway.
If you like walking we have the Arans on our doorstep and Cadair Idris only a few miles away. At this time of year the air is clear and the colours are fantastic. Even a stroll along one of the beautiful beaches in the area will blow those winter cobwebs away.
We’d love to welcome you to our home. Check for availability.
