Our Wales Caravan Holiday

We arrived safely at Winllan Farm Caravans Holiday (N52deg06'41.9" W004deg11'02.2") in Lampeter, Wales. The setup is simply two caravans at GBP60 each per night. Of course we rented only one of them. Janice is the one who arranged everything. Don't be misled by the size....
It may look small outside...
... but the space is well utilised. It is well equipped, in the kitchen... microwave, fridge, oven, cooker, plates, frying pans, knives, etc. We only need to bring our own food for cooking or eating!
...in the sitting/dining room, ... a TV, 2 sofa beds. Heater is in every room.
... while Esther and Janice were busy cooking the dinner...
... I was watching Top Gear on TV who was trying to convert caravan into rail coaches pulled by a converted car to run on rail!
The advantage of having two grown up girls travelling with us is that we never need to worry about food...
... They arranged everything, breakfast, lunch and dinner... Look at how cheap is goat milk in UK and compare with those in Miri.
Although the caravan site is in the midst of farmland, the surrounding is beautiful...
... there are beautiful flowers around the site...
... birds ...
... sheeps and cattle ...
... and more flowers of all kinds!
Meet the owners... Steve and Janette.
For those who are safety conscious, I noticed that all their electrical appliances are tested...
There are also smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
I would recommend the place but you must be driving and have a SAT NAV (unless you read map). The place is clean and tidy and can easily accommodate 6 people.

I think "Top Gear" was out of date, caravans were in use on the North Borneo Railway more than 60 years ago. Built by Wickham in the UK they were fitted with small engines to make them self-powered. The smaller ones were 6-seaters and the larger ones 15-seaters. They were introduced after WWII when the Japanese occupation and allied bombing had rendered the pre-war stock unusable. In addition to this Jeeps were fitted with rail wheels to use as locomotives, hauling goods wagons with chairs for passengers. I am creating a web site for Borneo railway history and discovered pictures of these during my research. I also saw one in use in Singapore in the 1970s.
