No internet connection or phone signal nor desire to use them: check. Breathtaking views from your rented 300 year old cottage overlooking Llangollen's riverside, castle remains and rolling hills: check. Argh Wales, I think I love you.
The family and I visited the wondrous Brimham Rocks in Ripon, Yorkshire the other week. The sun was shining and we felt like we'd gone back in time (or were on the set of a Flinstones live action movie at the very least) as the rocks were formed 380 million years ago.
We lived in London for many years before relocating to Leeds a year ago and like to head back and see our friends on family breaks when we can. I still often work in the Big Smoke but this break was purely for family time and fun and the little man loved every minute.
