A lazy Sunday afternoon!

We live in a beautiful place! Today we visited Netherstowey for a walk. The weather was beautiful, with a bit of a breeze blowing, just right to keep a person cool while walking uphill! This was a walk I downloaded from the net. Here is a link:

This was the very walk!
We started out at Cricketers Farm Shop and Cafe, where we had lunch, we often stop off there on a Sunday. Then we set off to find the Old School which is now the Library. Outside the Library, is now a carpark. We left the car and headed off with our downloaded instructions.

We walked up the hill to the site of the old castle. This is an ariel photo copied from an information board. You can see what is left of the castle just right of centre, the moat and the baily are fairly easy to see. We walked right up to the top, the view was amazing! But my photos do not really do it justice!

You can see where the moat would have been here.


  1. I'd love to live where I could take a walk and visit a castle with a moat... ahhhhh.

  2. It was pretty unexpected Cindy! We had to take a short drive to it, but it was a wonderful walk! There was a great B&B along the way. They grow all their own produce for the table and have a pottery too! I'd love to stay there o and the view from the house is beautiful too!
