WICKED WELSH WEEKEND” – Organised by Taffmog. From 25 to 28 May 2018
Two SexMog couples, David and Marilyn and Jeff and Karen took part in this event which was based at The Metropole Hotel in Llandrindod Wells – a journey of between 5 and 6 hours from Sussex. The weather was varied, rain all the way up there and part of the next day but then the sun came out, hoods down and the glorious scenery came into its own.
TaffMog had organised some scenic runs. These included a trip to Devil`s Bridge to ride the small steam train, The Vale of Rheidol Railway from which we had great views of the beautiful countryside, a visit to Devil`s Bridge itself and then a walk down 600 rough steps and 600 steps back up again to a lovely waterfall, but very
strenuous ( understatement !)
The next day we drove through very narrow country lanes, often just wide enough for one car, to an amazing private house, The Hall at Abbey-Cwm-Hir
) a grade 11 listed Victorian Gothic Revival. the owners Paul and Victoria Humpherston bought the Hall 20 years ago and have made it their life`s work to fill all of the 52 rooms with antiques, memorabilia, metal signs and it sits in a 12 acre garden. At Christmas each of the 52 rooms is decorated with Christmas themes.
Thanks to Judy Parsons of TaffMog for organising the event and to the Metropole Hotel for a comfortable stay.
