Hosting Ben Lake MP

Blog 1 feb.jpg

We were delighted to welcome Ben Lake MP to Tynrhyd Retreat. We had a constructive chat over tea and cake and covered issues such as the challenges faced by rural businesses including the difficulty in achieving broadband connectivity for remote areas. The importance of effective internet speeds and access to small rural business, its affect on health and well being and environmental impact.

Roughing It For Our Heroes

The whole family was honoured to host Steve, a brave RAF veteran, during his mammoth 1,400-mile walk through Wales and England. His aim is to raise awareness of the issues of mental health, alcohol and homeless veterans.

“Hopefully my challenge will not only show people how many of our veterans are suffering, but also let those who are suffering know how many care.”

Pale Buzzard visits Tynrhyd

We were very excited to be visited by this rare pale buzzard - this great action picture was taken by 10 year old Alaw!

Thank you to Harry Pepper of Ceredigion Birds for identifying this beautiful bird for us, who said,

"Cwm Rheidol in particular is noted for its unusually white birds...Congratulations to Alaw for her photographs.  It isn’t easy to take birds in flight, particularly birds of prey."
