If you're looking for a little distraction from the political nonsense, get yourself up to Ponsticill, in the heart of the Brecon Beacons, as we did last night. The Butcher's Arms is not just a friendly village pub with a great welcome and great food, it's also a bunkhouse. If you're walking, cycling or just driving through one of the most scenic areas in Wales, you can eat drink and stay here for great prices. Oh, and did I mention the great couple keeping it? No - not me and Gillian! Duh!! Huw and Elaine - pop in and say hi. If you mention my name, you'll get a free, warm smile. What else would you want :-) Just travel via Pant by the Brecon Mountain Railway until early next year when the other access road through Trefechan is fixed!
