We have been taking a holiday at home. We spent last weekend at the green man festival and now we are doing a bit of walking.
Today we walked above the village of Cilycwm, it’s about 15 minutes from our place. The hills are covered in bilberries and heather, they also become quite wild as you approach the tops. Today we sat on a craggy outcrop, eating bilberries and watching two peregrine falcons fight with a couple of crows.
We did, what I would consider, a spectacular walk with: rivers, water meadows, high moor, crags, deep ravines, pretty villages and more wildlife than you can shake a stick at.
The area is well worth a visit if you are a walker or mountain biker (look up Cwm Rhayader for a fun red run).
It’s also the home to the fun Small Nations festival, which we missed for the first time in four years this year.
