View From a Different Hill

I was whisked away on Tuesday to the lovely Gliffaes, Wales.

The view from our room Wednesday morning was beautiful.

The top of the Salmon Pool on the Usk below the hotel.

There were some fabulous old trees hanging in there, just.

John managed to have a few hours fishing after we came back from a drive around including Hay on Wye and a yum cream tea with Welsh scones.  He did catch a nice little trout but he just loves being down by the water and is never too bothered with landing the fish.  There were otter tracks the size of dog paws, a heron (the real fisher man!) and lots of other wildlife.  I love being in these privileged places.

The view from the balcony this morning was quite misty.

And this was the swimming pool they called a bath!!!

A romantic couple of days, everything was perfect and the food divine!  Of course they are so nice here, they even carpet the mouse holes...

And there was one more thing before we came home......


  1. What a beautiful place.

  2. How absolutely lovely! Looks like a scene from the movies!

  3. What a wonderful place, and the views are beautiful. It all looks so peaceful.

  4. A very tranquil place and not a million miles away from Dorset so it will be worth another visit. I took a book down to the river and didn't even see a word! Too busy just being. :-)
