We loved the Conservation Centre where we held the Pilates retreat so much that we went back to stay in "Owls Roost" in the Eco Lodge in the last week of May for a whole week of chilling. (Next retreat June 17th-19th 2016)

These are images from the lovely river walk we did on the outskirts of Lampeter.
We saw herons, damselflies, plus a lone Red Kite circling above us - being harassed by a crow actually! We were surprised these majestic birds were bothered by something much smaller than themselves, and that the crow would dare to do it. In fact we saw this happen a couple of times during our stay. Does anyone know why this happens?
There were some amazing reeds with white flowers flowing (and growing!) in the river reminding us of "Ophelia" painted in 1852 by the Pre Raphelite John Everett Millais.
Another day we went on a wonderful coastal walk from Aberaeron towards Newquay (the Welsh one of course!). I love the wonderful coconut smell that the gorse always gives off. Sometimes coastal paths can be gruelling, but this one was just right with spectacular views, and a lovely kind of "dingle" halfway along. Here we rested on soft green grass, studded with wildflowers, enjoying the river trickling through the small valley into the sea.
