Ffald-y-Brenin

Ffald-y-Brenin is set on the hillside on the top left - you can just see the buildings - and this is the panoramic view across and down the valley.The Beehive chapel.When building the chapel it was decided to make a feature of the rock in the centre rather than try and cut it off.My 'cell'. I loved it.

I love the lines of the building and the idea of using the rock. It has a lot of symbolism like :upon this rock, I will build my church"

I love the look of the beehive chael. It makes me think of the huts in Kerry. I also love the that they left the rock in place.

What a beautiful place, especially for a writer's retreat. I bet you got lots done.

Stunning! Can I buy it and retreat there permanently?

What a fabulous place, I'm sure you'll be inspired.

And incorporating the rock was such a good idea.

It's a beautiful old converted barn, nitwit.

Not exactly, suburbia! Because I was running the weekend, it was a bit stressful!

Indeed, leslie.

The chapel is a very special place, jams.

It was cosy, sally.

Oh dear, anne, one of those weeks?!

THanks, samantha.

I bet it's not, mutts.

We did, puss.

No, afrid not, furtheron, but you could stay there on your way to Aber?

It is a fab place, gennasus.

Hi, wendy. You'd have loved being there too.
