Local Beauty Spots
Chris Warren is a well known photographer who happens to be one of my badminton buddies!
Over many years he has been recording the beauty of this part of the world in some wonderful photos. His work is much loved and very well known and I appreciate too the way his photos capture the amazing variation we get in the local landscapes. His work has taken in landscapes throughout Wales, France and Fuerteventura. While his website is being refreshed you can contact Chris on 07866 458281
Laugharne which is just a few miles away rarely gets snow! It is definitely a Local Beauty Spot! Visitors come from far and wide to see Laugharne, its Castle and of course the Dylan Thomas Boat House. This is one of the places nearly all visitors staying here at Old Oak Barn visit and is such a tranquil place for a wander.
All the photos here are copyright Chris Warren but can be bought from him at very reasonable rates.
Joe Short Photographer
This year we have had some wonderful visitors who have enjoyed exploring not only this beautiful valley here at Old Oak Barn but also the local area. One family stands out because of the lovely photos he took while here. Joe Short Wedding Photographer from Bath is someone I think would come up with some extraordinary photos if you are planning your special day.
This photo was taken on the bottom track of our woods in early September when we had had an unusually wet spell and there were even a few puddles! The one below shows the Fairy House almost hidden among trees.
Joe has travelled the world for clients and I get the feeling he would go that extra mile to ensure you could plan together for some memorable and very unique pictures. He was very personable and always had a smile on his face. I think their 5 year old daughter adored our chickens – I don’t think I have met a child who was so focussed on them and it was a struggle to get her out of the run after collecting the eggs. She was completely fearless. We often check the sheep with visitors and if they want to get involved when we have to move them then of course all help is welcome!
Thank you to Joe Short Photographer for sending some photos for me to use in this short blog!
