On the 16th of May we had the Preston & District Vintage Car Club come and stay. What an exceptional group of cars!! We are always amazed at how well cared for they are. The oldest car we had on this tour was a Belsize and if you can believe it was manufactured in 1923 and is one of only a few cars remaining in the world from this manufacturer based in Manchester.
On this tour participants took part in a three day tour of scenic mid wales, the first day they visited the lovely seaside town of Aberaeron and then went on to explore Llanerchaeron House which is a National Trust property that has the most wonderful gardens. Well worth a visit!!
Day Two saw the club members to the National Botanic Gardens of Wales where the cars were put on display for all to see and enjoy while they took a look around. Don’t worry all cars were watched over by keen eye of the car warden aka Martin Hadley also goes by the name of pudding guard.
Day Three was a trip to Elan Valley which was well received and it never disappoints with its unbelievable views of Victorian Dams and surrounding woodland.
The award for the most eye catching car goes to Mr & Mrs Harrison in their Lilac Morgan, what an incredible vehicle and it has participated in several tours of America. Mr Harrison was even kind enough to take a member of staff out for a spin round the block. A short video of the lilac mog can be found on our Facebook page. Also if you are interested in the adventures of the Morgan please take a look at their website which is www.lilacmog.com.
This weekend we had the Can-Am Spyders visiting us with there 3 wheel motorbikes, they were a group of 17 people on 10 bikes touring the fantastic scenery that we have in Mid Wales. on Saturday they visited the Llyn Brianne Reservoir with its fantastic scenery heading to Tregaron for a coffee stop and then Devils Bridge for lunch, from there they headed towards Rhayader for a drive through the Elan Valley with its fantastic Victorian Dams and great scenery before returning to Llanechindda for a Barbecue. The weather was on our side with lovely sunshine when they arrived on Friday and broken cloud on Saturday giving the perfect conditions for a motorbike tour.
