29 years wed, Valentines Day and plans...

Friday was our 29th wedding anniversary, on valentines day, yep that is me the old romantic !! We took the opportunity to take ourselves away for a couple of nights to North Wales, to the Sychnant Pass country house 




It is a lovely place with a very friendly host and top food. We used it as a base to view a range of properties we may consider as one of the plans we are cooking at the moment. Our lives are jigsaw puzzles at the moment and until we can start joining a few pieces together we cannot see what the picture of our future is.

One thing for sure it was a good way to see Wales, very wet and stormy. Rachel is aware of how Wales can be, she lived on Anglesey for many years and Charles her late father lives there pretty much all of his adult life.

We saw some stunning properties, some very rural that I would imagine brings its own challenges. We were lucky we visited two days after the really big storm and we saw many instances of its damage, including power lines still down. There were many instances where trees had been cleared from the road and they were big old trees !! We suspected it was the local community (farmers) which were out there keeping the roads open, but I expect there were many properties without and still without as we travelled around.

Some of the properties were so remote they were on gated roads.... good job I was driving !


The rain was snow on the mountain tops.


We started the day looking at a lock side property in Welshpool.... nice and a shame it is not yet connected !

We finished the day at another canal side property, this one a lot different....


It is on Chirk bank...a perfect location, only.....


In my opinion the tow path gives a clue to one of the significant challenges this property would present you with....

There are obvious signs of slip into the valley below, so whoever takes this on will have their work cut out. It'll make a fabulous house when done as it comes with half an acre of land....

All of the viewings between, well maybe or maybe not time will tell, like I said a lot of pieces still to be joined up.
