A lovely long walk in the gorgeous Welsh countryside 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 Yesterday we were invited to join @christywydd_welshweatherman and @valeways volunteers on a guided walk around Dinas Powys in the Vale of Glamorgan, as part of @visitthevale’s #10DaysinMay / #AmDroYnYFro Walking Festival 🥳 This was a 5 mile circular loop, taking in Cwm George, Salmon Leaps and lots of beautiful woodland and farmland. It’s Vale Trails Walk 6, if you fancy it yourself 🍃 This walk has been on my list for a while and it didn’t disappoint. It was a great morning with fab guides, lovely company and a pub stop at the end 🍹 Chris and @visitthevale are running 10 guided walks in total around the county in May, and there are 8 left, so be sure to get booked on. We’re already looking into booking another! ☺️
