Hidden Llyn

One of the benefits of winter is that with the trees bare you can see all sorts of hidden parts of the landscape. I was driving to Pwllheli from Aberdaron the other day and happened to catch this glimpse of the Nanhoron Estate. The main house is from the regency period, but the Harden family have owned this 5000 acre piece of land for 700 years. These days they operate it as an environmentally friendly farm under the Tir Gofal (Land Care) scheme to encourage wildlife.

The older house, Hen Dy, is available as a holiday let.

Fine Weather this Winter on Pen Llŷn

The winter this year is far from over and we may yet see the sort of snowfall that we experienced last year. However, the weather of late has been nothing short of remarkable and these random photographs were taken last weekend.
