Anyone up for a mini meeting in North Wales ?

There are some really nice campsites in the beautiful Snowdonian National Park in North Wales.

I've stayed in a few of them over the years while hiking. You have to pay but they do have showers etc and usually a short ride or 10 min walk from a small shop and pub !!

Anyone fancy an overland get together one weekend over the summer ?? (probably July)

I've not got any details yet, but If I can get an idea of numbers, I could phone the sites and try to arrange a group discount or a private corner of the site etc...

Who knows.............

Great idea Ted, only problem is July hosts the HUMM and Pyreknees-up events in Spain, so thats means its time for 'Fun an Sun'

Definitely up for this depending on final choice of dates.

Have a look at Nant Col Falls Campsite. Not much by way of facilities (although they are developing them unfortunately, but that's more than made up for by the location and the fact that they allow (even encourage) you to have open fires....they sell you bags of logs at £3.50 a ago.

It's about a mile inland from Llanbedr, between Barmouth and Harlech. I'll check out the exact GR when I get home later.

Sounds great . I found this site www.nantcolwaterfalls.co.uk


It looks perfect to be honest... And I love campfires and wild areas

I think it will be a great destination.

Im up for that, am also in north wales. I use a campsite in dolwyddelan 'Tynalderoch' usually quite quiet.
Got toilets, take animals, no showers, can have fires and its right by the river, family site..
Might be able to arrange to get us the 'Naughty corner as my cousins fella does the maintainance on the land..
Is on the A470 and easy access to the A5, & Betws Y Coed.. but the nearest pub is a few miles either way.

It's certainly a very nice part of the country, but if you want a few more trails (and to be a bit closer to the rest of civilisation), plus decent loo/shower facilities etc - you could also try here?:

Ddol Hir Caravan Park
Pandy Road
Glyn Ceiriog
Llangollen
Denbighshire
LL20 7PD

I stayed there with a bunch of trail riding friends last September - they have a dedicated camping field, a nice spot in a valley by a river (but not too close to the water for midges etc) and is close to some corking 'big bike' trails - Wayfairers etc. and some lovely road riding over towards Bala and Lake Vyrnwy too...
