Yes it was supposed to have wifi but had broken the day before. It's some kind of satilite wifi, but to be honest was fantastic not having access to emails etc.

Had to walk 4 miles to get phone reception to let SWMBO know I was still alive Laughing

Wow, that's even more remote than our current favourite in rural Wales. Seriously impressive!!
 My 30/9/17 Full Fat (purchased new) is bricked and it's now been off the road for the last 35 days (that's a nice round 5 weeks) and counting Sad
My dream car is stuck in the dealer’s workshop compound, with no idea of when / if LR will ever be able to provide them with the necessary parts and service bulletin to ever be able to make it work again.
And I’m still waiting for a LR loaner!

I think OS grid = SN761 889

You cross two rivers/streams....Afon Llechwedd Mawr & Nat Y March Thumbs Up

Surrounded by old Lead mines, works and a few reseviours

Will certainly be going back there.....oh yes water is 'Well' fed and a decent filtration system Thumbs Up

Expand this photo and you can just see the cottage in the middle, taken from around 4 miles away Thumbs Up
