I've spent the past week in South Wales, on the Gower peninsula. It's a 2 week walking festival, comprising around 70 walks at various times of the day and encompassing many different kinds of walks. I easily found lovely accommodation, and have even had wonderful sunny weather!
It seems that they have had difficulty in getting people to run it next year, but if it does go ahead it's really worth going to. It would be great to get a…

The subject came up during the Dorset holiday this year of the pretty poor comfort levels at the Youth Hostel in Litton Cheyney.

They all have either ensuites or a bathroom shared…
