    Stay in a straw cottage

    A cottage built of straw which as much as you huff and puff will not blow down! Anthony and Margot Porter built the unusual Straw Cottage on their farm in Mid Wales in 2012.

    What to expect: sling library

    SLING LIBRARIES, LIKE BOOK AND TOY libraries, allow parents to borrow slings and baby carriers so they can try them and find out which sling might suit them best.
