TripAdvisor Reviews Chaplins Hotel Merthyr Tydfil
Travel Blogs from Merthyr Tydfil
... accommodation voucher and driving reference in separate poly pockets, arranged chronologically in one slim, professional-looking file. All for nothing. Because I left it there. On the chair. Eighty miles away at this point. Nothing like a sudden drama to make you reconsider whether it's safe for you to travel halfway across the planet without a ...
... birds and squirrels above the doorways, and again in the library, where the doors were framed with insanely detailed woodcuttings of trees and leaves in which you could spot mice, lizards, frogs, so very many birds… and oh yes, there were books there too. I think.

Clem & Lloyd have now fixed the clothes dryer, so we can now wash & dry our clothes without having washing hanging all over the house to dry, another big yay.
It now depends on the weather, where our next adventure will be tomorrow.
