The Retreat in the Hills
Last weekend I was at the Flea Retreat in Wales and it was simply wonderful. We were right in the middle of the Welsh Hills.
We took the scenic route home through the Elan Valley and there was nothing but countryside and hills for a few hours. Some parts were a little high for my liking, but you couldn’t help admire the views.
We stayed at the lovely Tynrhyd Retreat which was in a simply stunning setting. This is the view from my window last Saturday morning. It was a bit cloudy first thing but it did brighten up as the day wore on.
The kids and Graham also had a lovely weekend in Aberystwyth nearby. Here is a photo of them enjoying the castle ruins on a hill that overlooked the sea.
It was good fun all around for all of us. I got to mix with my blogger friends and learn new things and the kids got the chance to see the sea and have some fun with their Dad.
The weather treated us kindly being warm but cloudy and only the occasional shower.
Sounds like it was a lovely weekend and a totally gorgeous spot to spend time! Glad it was good!
Wow what a gorgeous location for a retreat. I bet it was great fun.

It was a lovely weekend wasn’t it. And such a pretty drive home back through Wales
Great photos – I’d love to explore the castle ruins and flea markets are always fun. #MySundayPhoto
Wales is stunning isn’t it. We stayed in Caemmes for our honeymoon in a cabin on a lake and it was perfection! Beautiful photos #sundaysnap
naha! I thought that was a Scottish landscape at first. Glad to hear you had a good time at the Flea retreat. Great idea to combine it with a stay for the kids and dad. #MySundayPhoto
I was half tempted to drive up, for the day, and visit you all x
Oh you should have done Jo, you’d have been welcome I’m sure x

What a lovely weekend for all of you! I’ve seen a lot of lovely photos from the Retreat.
Your kids are looking so grown up now and one of your daughters looks so much like you!
It did look like a stunning setting #MySundaySnapshot
Oh it really was, I’d love to go again, despite getting scared on the high hills.
It was so beautiful, and I’d love to go again despite the trauma of the drive over the high parts.
How lovely! I am glad you had a good weekend.
Thank you Lisa, it really was lovely x
