Sometimes I like to surprise my girlfriend with little weekends away, or micro adventures. I tell her we’re going away but nothing else. She often guesses the location but obviously not the details.
I did this last weekend and we went for a nice long walk around Waterfall Woods in Wales. It’s a picturesque walk along a network of rivers with a few waterfalls along the way and a big one at the end. If you’re interested in going there, the actual village is called ‘Pontneddfechan’.
After walking for a couple of hours and exploring the waterfalls, we went on to the real surprise location which was a tiny cabin or ‘Shepherds Hut’ in the middle of a field in a Hamlet in the Brecon Beacons. It was absolutely freezing outside so we went in, got the log burner going and made ourselves at home as the Sun went down.
After we’d rested our legs we popped in to the local town, grabbed a bite to eat and watched some Rugby amongst some passionate welsh fans. We then headed back to the hut and got the fire going again as it was freezing outside. It was so nice to just relax in this tiny space that was only as wide as a double bed is long.
In the morning our host Jodi dropped a full breakfast outside in cool bags, it was a selection of lovely pastries, granola and yoghurt. We tucked in before heading home.
