May at Coedmor Fach

Another month in lockdown…but we can’t complain with such glorious weather and stunning views. We’ve continued staying close to home enjoying our gardens and meadows.

We’ve also been busy with decorating Woodpecker Cottage and renovating the bathroom.

Shopping for new furnishings has all had to be done online, but thankfully we have managed to get most things we need delivered. We’ve invested in quality Egyptian cotton bedding for a touch of luxury and it’s been great fun choosing the decor. Can’t wait to get the decorating finished and get the rooms dressed so we can take some new pictures!

It has been a frustrating month for everyone with limits on travel and seeing loved ones. Here in Wales, restrictions have been extra severe as we had to stay very local. So we’ve not been able to explore all the amazing places around us yet. We are, however, making the most of our location which is a constant delight to us. If you wake up early, you are rewarded with some remarkable sights.

On clear days you can see the Cambrian Mountains in the distance which is magical and there is often mist in the valley below us which gradually lifts as the sun rises.

The views are enchanting at any time of day and we have had another month of unbelievable sunshine and summer temperatures. 🔥

Even Ziggy appreciates the views (or had he just seen a hare in the meadow)?

It has even been warm enough for BBQs and dinner in the garden this month.

Then to round off the evening, a glorious sunset.

Happily, we are going to be allowed more freedom in June – we have to continue to stay local, but we are allowed to drive to go for a walk so we can start visiting some of the beautiful spaces around us. Can’t wait to share them with you!
