Congratulations to Julie and David Dean from Rhewl whose website,, has just been voted by the Sunday Telegraph as the fifth best travel website on the web.

Finishing just behind, Julie and David's website allows people to download free audio tours onto a mp3 player, "then plug in and head off".

Julie says: "To be placed just after the Lonely Planet website leaves us with a warm glow."

There are more than 1,000 audio tours and trails available on the website from tourist sites to off the beaten track walks.

The husband and wife team also produce audio tours for a variety of heritage, nature and community organisations.

Locally, there are audio trails [in English and Welsh] at Moel Famau, Bodelwyddan and Corwen.

And they have just completed a project for the National Trust at Powis Castle, and a ghost walk in Chester.
