Beautiful, yet little known llyn Clywedog


The scenery surrounding this large reservoir near Llanidloes is truly wonderful. This walk takes you along the western side of the reservoir along the Glyndwr’s Way long distance footpath. You start at the car park at south western end of the water with views of the Afon Clywedog. You then head past the spectacular dam which is the tallest concrete dam in the UK, with a height of 72 metres and a length of 230 metres. The walk continues to the north western edge of the reservoir with a mixture of lakeside sections and woodland trails. It’s a splendid area for bird watching too. Look out for red kites, buzzards and ravens on your walk.
The whole of this route is designed for walkers but cyclists can enjoy the second half of the route where there is a splendid trail along the lakeside. For the first half you can follow country lanes to the west of the lake.

August is upon us and even more reason to get out and enjoy our lovely island. Everyone is opening their doors to welcome visitors from wildlife parks to the countries loveliest beaches and countryside despite the shadow of Covid hovering invisibly over us all, however with a bit of common sense this should not be too much of a problem if we all follow the recommendations.

Wildlife Parks are asking everyone to pre book prior to arrival  and many coastal resorts are asking everyone to check before they arrive. Thinking of heading off in your caravan or with a tent? Sites are reporting record bookings so check well in advance. 

 It is definitely not all ‘Doom and Gloom’, Britain has one of the most diverse landscapes for its size and by simply clicking on any of the links on the home page you will have, at your fingertips, access to many wonderful and exciting places to visit during this month.

Being ‘Self Sufficient’ in a tent.

From Saturday 4 July Camp sites across England can open their doors, but with restrictions which will mean being ‘Self Sufficient’ in your tent will potentially be essential if you are to enjoy your stay.  It is very likely that toilet and shower blocks will be closed but chemical waste and water facilities will be available.

A toilet tent pegged up inside or outside your main canvas accommodation with a chemical loo toilet installed is the perfect solution.


The aptly named Thetford Porta Potti has a long and well tested, and proven history of providing self sufficiency in this aspect of outdoor living. Easily and cleanly emptied into the chemical waste point at camp sites it relies upon a dissolving chemical which is diluted into the empty waste tank, add water and you will have no embarrassing waste or odours to worry about. 




Showers are also a possibility with lightweight foot pump operated items from Amazon,
