What a tranquil place. Hidden in the Welsh hills. Plenty of wild life. No-one about to spoil the moment

We stayed at Graig Wen & The Slate Shed accommodation, very close by, in Arthog. We were in a cottage but they do have camping pitches, some with electric hook ups. It's a lovely place, Sarah, the owner is lovely.
