Charles from Woodland Farm's guide to the best things to do in South Wales

After 30 years as a solicitor, Charles Horsfield made the most obvious career move. He became a ceramicist, and host to glamping guests, naturally. Now he invites city folk out to their farm to live a little slower, a little more intentionally, and with a lot more calm.


Places to stay near Welsh castles

The beautiful Welsh countryside is a living, breathing journey through history. Dotted among the rugged hills, perched above lush valleys and overlooking windswept bays, you’ll find more castles per square mile than any other country in Europe
