Roaming around Ruthin!

At Llyn Brenig
 Well it has been a while since I have been on to upload anything to the blog so to make up for it this time its picture loaded!
A couple of weeks ago Sonia joined me at the caravan after Peter left to go back to work and we had a great couple of days exploring the local area.
Our first drive out took us up across the local moors to a Nature Reserve and reservoir where you can go on great walking trails or mountain bike to your hearts content. Unluckily for us though the rain set in and we would have only got soaked so after a nice little lunch in the cosy café overlooking the lake we took a few pictures and decided to head back to Ruthin where we hoped it would be a little drier.

 Back in Ruthin we found a very old town house that has been restored and is open to the public as are the gardens hidden away at the back. We went to have a look at them at what a hidden gem of a find it was . So peaceful with lovely views of the countryside around. On a wet day we plan to go back and look over the house.

 This building is on of the oldest in Ruthin with parts dating from Elizabethan times.

igel had had a Spa day when they were on holiday in July up at Ruthin Castle, so she decided to show me over the grounds and we were met by a very hungry Peacock. Sonia quickly dished up a tasty treat of a biscuit she found in her pocket to give him!

 In the grounds we found a few more and one female had a tiny baby .

 Parts of the castle are very old but most of the present day building was built as a family home in the early 1800s and is now a hotel .
We went in and saw the room that housed these stained glass windows.
