Celebrating in the Wilderness

The Wilderness near Mitcheldean in Gloucestershire was the choice for my friend and ex-colleague Emily’s 50th birthday weekend.  As well as the wonderful company, food and drink and brilliant passtimes, games and musical talents, the place itself was great.  I woke up to watch the morning sunrise and slow emerging shapes.

The house lit up too.


The walk took in forest paths and a frozen Wigpool, returning via Mitcheldean.

      Good idea – it’s handy for Wales and England, making far flung friends more equidistant. I think about 40 people stayed each night and 100 were there one day, and it was warm and the kitchen really well-equipped.
