    Just finished sorting the MH after our trip to Wales. We had a week of indifferent weather, but enjoyed our time chilling out & relaxing at "Dylan's" Cwmcuttan CL near Llandovery.
    It's a nice quiet rural site with hard standing and all of the basic requirements that you expect of a CL. A bonus for us was the EHU supply, as our Habitation Batteries had almost died on us at Malvern :Angry:

    Our stay was enhanced by the company of Movan (Joy) on the next pitch and the helpfulness & friendly disposition of our hosts, Eileen & Mark.

    New Battery installed & almost finished packing for a trip to Scotland.Plans are to see the Dolphins at Fortrose, the Highland meet at the Herb Garden and then on to Skye :Smile:

    I congratulate you on your expertise with Photoshop. Do you know, had you not told us where the pics were taken I would never have known you'd manually taken out all the raindrops by hand.

    You'll probably do the same with some Skye pics later. Have a good trip.

    Cwmcuttan is a beautiful site. Enjoyed 4 days there, loved the ducks and the fish in the lake.
    Would have liked to do a train trip but too long to leave my dogs :-(

    If you like walking and /or cycling, bird watching, train travel, and total peace to relax, this site is just the job.

    Hilary and I, with 3 dogs 2 tortoises and budgie, stayed at Cwmcuttan in February. Gorgeous place and wonderful welcome.

    We recommend the Whitehall (Pub and rRstaurant) at the junction of Castle Street and High Street in Llandovery for good, reasonably priced, food - excellent Sunday lunch.

    Left in the snow to go to Brynnich (Brecon) and were at Brynnich again when, on the night of 15/16 May, it snowed again - is it us?

    Looks lovely in white though.

    :Smile: ... and I, too, had a wonderful week at Dylan's. The week was made extra special by Barbara and Dixon and the little Rosie.

    Despite the weather I didn't want to come home. The two hosts were so friendly and helpful. Lovely, lovely people. Thank you both. Looking forward to seeing you again next year.

    Lovely walks and my week was made special too by the animals. Was adopted by a cat called Colin and I was mesmerized by the fish in the pond ... I think they would have jumped into my suitcase if I had held it out to them. Lots of wild birds .. including baby pied wagtails.... Oh, lovely memories.

    Thanks lovely people, we love meeting all these great folk who come here and love it as much as we do. Joy, think Colin is missing you and the fish too !
    Looks like you got some nice photos too.
    You are welcome back any time and next time we will clear a bay in the barn for a mini meet.

    No I did not see either of you:Smile:, didn't know you were in the area. You were close enough to call in and say hello, maybe next time. Ask carol and Eddie what you missed:Smile:

    After hearing what everyone has to say about your place I thought we might pay a visit. Is there space there next week?
