Iolo at Campbell’s Platform

Today we welcomed Iolo to Campbell’s Platform, having enjoyed a short journey on the first train of the day from Plas Halt, along with the TV crew. They are working on a new series commissioned by the BBC called Iolo’s Great Welsh Parks. The series will have four programmes, each thirty minutes long, and this programme is based on Plas Tan y Bwlch. We saw and filmed some great wildlife, in oak woodland once owned by The Plas, but it’s up to the executive producer to decide what goes in and what gets cut - fingers crossed they’ll keep the footage of the goats which were on their best behaviour. The series is due for broadcast in 2013.

If you like nature, wildlife, seclusion and steam trains .... you should come and have a look for yourself. Campbell's Cottage is available to rent throughout the year and is currently available between 15th and 29th June 2012.

Iolo’s previous two series, The Secret Life of Birds and Wild Wales, have just been released as DVD box sets. In case you don’t get to see the wildlife you are looking for, we have put copies of these in the cottage.
