We drove east and mammy dropped us off at Llantillio Crossenny where we’d finished last time. We picked up the ‘acorn’ signs and followed the route north-west towards Great Treadam. A mile later we reach White Castle and stop for a picnic. My sister eats olives while dad munches on an apple. The 12th Century castle is not to be missed and is a great place for doggies to run around in.

It should have been plain sailing from here on but thanks to a farmer who took down all the ‘acorn’ signs we got a bit lost. Eventually my daddy decided to just walk across the river and get wet – I loved this of course but my sister Eve wasn’t so thrilled.

Then daddy asked a farmer in a beat-up old Landie for directions and he told us we were about a mile off course. Doh!

Eventually we reach the 13th Century St Cadoc’s church after a very steep climb up a field at Llangattock-Lingoed which is worth a look before stopping for a much needed cider (dad), J2o (sister) and water (me) at the Hunters Moon pub.
