    Parked up at Cwmcuttan till Sunday. What a lovely site, we're very happy here. Just walked up to the train halt just up the lane, the station cottage looks ripe for a purchase and renovation project, what an idyllic place to live. Even the seats in the platform passenger shelter has handmade bench cushions!

    On Sunday we head across to a CL called Upper Marros Farm at Pendine Sands before moving north along the pembrokeshire coast.

    Oi! Hands off the station cottage. It has my name on it :BigGrin:
    Had a poke around it last year, would make a great renovation project, as you say.

    Enjoy your trip around Wales

    Sorry Dave who lives above it on the hill has brought it but doesn't seem to be doing anything with it. Sad it has a lot of history like Cwmcuttan

    If you get the opportunity (and if the Museum is open) try and have a look at Babs the record breaking car rescued from the sand.:thumb:

    (It was owned and driven by a Vicar's son from Wrexham.)

    Super site with super owners. We spent 3 days there pre Malvern and loved it. It will be a regular stop for us before Malvern each year now.
