Holiday in Herefordshire

We had a week in the lovely Herefordshire countryside.  In glorious unseasonably hot (where we got burnt as it never occurred to me to pack suncream) we walked in the Brecon Beacons completing the glorious horseshoe ridge walk which including joining the hordes at the top of Pen y Fan.

 We found tadpoles!!!
The next day we went back and did the waterfall walk which we had done a few years ago. It allows you to actually walk behind Sgwd yr Eira which is amazing.

 On my mum's birthday we visited Croft Castle. We went inside the castle which is set up to reflect life there in the middle part of the 20th Century before getting to explore the parkland including the beautiful old oak trees and the bluebells just starting to appear!

 We visited the stunning Tintin abbey
 and the girls enjoyed the junior Go-Ape course in the Forest of Dean. (P said it was the best thing she did this holiday).

The big 3 and the husband vanished to try caving at the near by Clearwell Caves, but as P is too young we stayed and explored the Forest of Dean where we walked the Sculpture Trail (which I remember walking with my dad years and years ago) and the Gruffalo trail.
