One of our members, Cath, is the owner of a rather lovely boutique B & B (that title really does not do it justice) and if you are coming from afar for one of our walks then we highly recommend seeing if she has availability…
Oh my, what a sorry tale of poor customer service, fraud, complicity in criminality and absolute disregard for the visitor to Cardiff by Trip Advisor and Cardiff Council…
To be brutally honest, the weather was looking just a little bit worse than awful. The heavens had opened yet again the day before, causing more flooding and I was in two minds as to whether to join the 8 Waterfalls Walk organised by Andrew Lamb of Wales Outdoors.
Graham is our foraging expert and just before the lockdown he led a walk that up-skilled participants with the tools for surviving the zombie apocalypse (and also taking in the highest waterfall in the Brecon Beacons National Park).
Yes, for any of our day walks you can bring one friend for FREE if you have liked the Wales Outdoors page on fb and have become a member of ‘Wales Outdoors’. This offer is a one time opportunity and is valid while your standing order payments are being made.
I think therefore that it is time to, on occasion, explore a little further afield, to leave the parks for those who don’t drive or can’t travel. After all, walking outside to my car and driving a short distance to somewhere where I will see less people than if I were walking the streets and parks of Cardiff has to be a good thing.
THE MONDAY MOAN – A once a week spot for us to moan about the stuff that perhaps we should all be moaning about that little bit more…
Melitsa is so very lucky with the weather. You remember that time when it didn’t stop raining don’t you? The floods? It seems oh so long ago and given this current run of glorious weather and the corvid crisis but a dim memory.
We have a store – it’s now the only payment portal for walks as we have severed links wit PayPal due to PayPal’s appalling response to the corona virus and support of small business’ at this extraordinary time.
To join the residential (pool and sauna and hot tub and bar and two very lovely walks) go here – https://www.walesoutdoors.co.uk/store/Forest-Lodge-And-Spa-November-27th-to-29th-p183051201
