Another sunny day so the Wednesday Wanderers (4 of us!) left our car at the Myddfai Community Hall & Visitor Centre
http://www.myddfai.org and walked from Myddfai taking the Llandovery Road to Llwynywormwood, the Welsh home of Prince Charles . Myddfai is a delightful village with a wonderful history:
The Lady of the Lake and the Physicians of Myddfaihttp:
The Carmarthenshire village of Myddfai could perhaps be the birthplace of modern medicine. According to legend, a dynasty of herbalists known as the Physicians of Myddfai lived and worked here in the 11th and 12th centuries. Some believed they had magical powers.
Anyway, we left the road and crossed over the fields following a well worn path dodging our way between some friendly sheep. As we approached Llwynywormwood , we passed a ‘sentry’ box!
Continuing along the path we arrived at the House which was beautifully situated in the folds of the hills with views right across the valley. The front porch was adorned with roses( I didn’t take photos as it felt too intrusive to lean across the hedge and stick my nose into their garden!) We did pass right by their ‘barn’ and followed the path into the meadow which surrounded the house.
The meadow was delightful humming with bees and fluttering with butterflies- there were numerous orchids and all kinds of wild flowers. We had just one common spotted orchid in our ‘meadow’ so to see so many grouped together was very special.
We completed our walk through the fields and back onto the road passing directly behind Llwynywormwood- sadly Prince Charles was not at home to offer us a cup of coffee. So we headed back to the Myddfai Visitor Centre where we enjoyed a look around the shop and then had a delicious scone and coffee break to end another wonderful Wednesday Wanderers Walk.
