On Sunday we headed towards Cardigan and stopped at Cilgerran Castle on the way. They were having a reenactment of medieval times which was really interesting.

On Friday, 31 July we headed to Croft Castle, another lovely National Trust property. The history of all these houses is always so interesting. The Crofts built this castle in medieval times and lived in it for almost the whole 500 years.

As you can tell, we certainly love the old houses and the National Trust ones are always so interesting. It is wonderful to read about the families who lived in them and their history. Penny, Bruce and I ventured out here on Wednesday.
There were so many stories of the miners and their families in the Museum. It was a very moving exhibition.
We are now staying at Penny and John's home in Hay-on-Wye. It is lovely to be here once again and great to catch up with dear friends. On Tuesday on the way to Hay we visited another 2 lovely National Trust properties. The first was Montacute House which is an amazing house which is basically the same as it was 400 years ago. It was used extensively in the filming of the series, Wolf Hall.
