Review: Rhandirmwyn campsite, Llandovery

We’re heading to the only place in Wales that the teens don’t mind being without wifi. It’s Easter, which is synonymous with Rhandirmwyn, our favourite hideaway campsite deep in Carmarthenshire; so deep, it’s nearly in Ceredigion. I’ve actually heard of… Continue Reading →

Finding my Kinder spirits

Main photo: Tony Evans   I’m on a hill, hands map-free, blissfully unsure of where we’re going. I have a map with me, of course, deep inside a rucksack pocket. It’s cheerfully vintage, having belonged to my lovely late father-in-law,… Continue Reading →

Review: Gwern Gof Isaf campsite, Snowdonia

Unless you’re one of those hardy wild campers who’s just spent a harsh February perched on Striding Edge in a bivvy, drumroll… the camping season is about to begin! I regularly research bivvies and think about being a hardy wild… Continue Reading →

A walk in the park

I’m coming down off Corn Du by torchlight, chatting to a guy I’ve met just a couple of hours earlier. I’m not entirely sure if he’s the same guy I was chatting to five minutes ago, as all I can… Continue Reading →

Winter camping? I’m doing a bunk!

I’m standing under a solitary lamp in otherwise pitch blackness, pressing security code digits for the 114th time. I feel a bit like the drunk guy scraping his key down the front door on a birthday card I once received,… Continue Reading →

Britain’s Favourite Winterwatch? I’m inspired!

For someone who doesn’t watch a great deal of telly, this week I’ve been glued. Winterwatch – yay! Britain’s Favourite Walks – whoo hoo! Winterwatch clashing with Britain’s Favourite Walks on Tuesday night – dilemma! Now, I love January, but… Continue Reading →

A perfect November day for new year’s resolutions

The week starts with a lumbar puncture and ends with what should have been my brother’s 45th birthday. As far as weeks go, it’s not the best and I can’t really afford the luxury of a day off for my… Continue Reading →
