West of Caernarfon

Post  red_leader on Fri Mar 30, 2012 7:27 am

I would chose some where to the west of Caernarfon,
to find a place less busy and more relaxed without a massive in rush at the weekends.
Perhaps not just of the side of the A55
The first 2 you suggested looked great.
Best wishes
Chris


quote="SUMB"]As we are looking at a new site obviously a site visit will be needed hence trying to get a few lined up to visit in one weekend.

I am working on the principal that a pub and shop in walking distance is not a priority but quality shower and toilet block is. Not making the same mistake as last time I organised the campsite Very Happy

Need input from those planning to attend though so I can cover everyones wishes. Also other site suggestions are more than welcome in case I've missed somewhere.

And a third site I've found and want to contact is - http://members.fortunecity.com/dinarthhall/[/quote]

Post  SUMB on Mon May 21, 2012 6:25 pm

OK, so have just returned from an weekend in Llandudno and have now visited all 4 of the campsites. It's going to be difficult to choose I think but I can make it easier by ruling one out from the off.

Dinerth Hall Campsite (Rhos-on-Sea) - It is OK and the camping fields are very nice but the toilet and shower facilities are - shall we say in need of some updating. They are clean and tidy but old. Added to this there is no direct route to the beach. Don't get me wrong - it's OK but both Colette and I feel this one is not for us.

Cae Clyd Caravan and Camping Site (Pontllyfni) - We visited this site in glorious sun shine and a slight sea breeze. It is a beautiful site, absolutely silent. The showers and toilets are immaculate and very new - but the 3 stalls and 3 showers are shared. No separate areas for the men and the girls which I personally find a bit odd. This site boasts a short walk over a field to a private beach - unfortunately there is no sand, it's all pebbles and shingle and the waterline is covered with seaweed. Again, a great site if you want seclusion but we feel not suitable for us.

Aberafon (Gym Goch) - Very narrow access to the site down quite a steep tarmaced drive, but there were a number of twin axle caravans on site so it can't be too bad. The shower and toilet block is very clean and quite new - but the showers need 20p's. The site is stunning, multiple terraces - all with views out to sea. Unfortunately the advertised private beach is the same as above - pebbles and shingle - no sand in sight. Speaking to some campers there it seems there was a storm a few years ago that robbed all the sand. Again, this site is in the middle of no-where and nothing near by. It is a real shame - but the people that we spoke to have been going there for about 6 years and love it for the slip way to get the boats in and out of the water and the fact there is nothing else to do.

Manorafon Farm - (Abergele) - Although it is just off the A55 this is a lovely quiet site and we couldn't hear any road noise. A full size Tesco is in easy walking distance as is a pub that is supposed to be very good. Pigs, goats, sheep, chickens and ducks on site - some tamer than others for petting. The beach is walkable from the campsite and this one does actually have sand on it although I got the impression most people drive as there is loads and loads of free parking on the front. The showers and toilets were clean and tidy and well place for easy access. The one and only down side that we could find about this site was the fact that they cannot have caravans and tents together - now we are not talking different fields here, as the site is only on field, it is a case of caravans on one side of the gravel road on hard standings and then tents the other side of the road.

All in all both Colette and I feel that the Manorafon Farm is the best choice out of the 4 that we visited but obviously we will go with the majority. All of the sites visited this weekend made it very clear that we should be booking with them ASAP so numbers really are needed please people. The only thing I haven't done is to try and negotiate a slightly better rate for us - but that isn't really possible without numbers. So and I please ask anyone that wants to go let me know?

Thanks for all the replies guys and the support - I hope you all find that the choice we have made works for everyone.

I have asked Red_Leader to post the address and map on the Scamp website.

Here are the details in the mean time.

Manorafon Farm Touring And Camping, Llanddulas Road, Abergele, Conwy, LL22 8ET

Travelling East (From Chester)

Stay on the A55 to junction 24 sign posted Abergele Follow the A547 through Abergele Proceed straight through 2 sets of traffic lights At the Tescos roundabout take the 1st exit, straight on Continue to follow the A547 for approximately 300 metres Pass a very large stone arch on your left hand side Staying on the A547, 100 meters after the arch turnn left Follow the private drive for 150m, at the top of the drive turn right and enter Manorafon Farm.

These are the directions that we used to find it when we went to visit and they are spot on.

I am planning to contact them this weekend with the provisional numbers and see if we can get a slightly better rate, so please keep the replies coming.

We should be coming from the 29th to the 3rd as the Wales holiday is in between two other car related events we're planning on going to.

OK, so everyone that has said that they are definitely coming to Wales is booked for the dates that have said they will be there for and a provisional booking for Charlie and Ian.

I have managed a slight reduction for those that are coming on their own - not a lot though, sorry. Think it is something to do with the fact that they are not a very big site and quite popular.

If anyone else now wishes to join us then you can ring Manorafon Farm direct and try and book under the Scamp Owners Club.

Personally I am really looking forward to the new site. Let's all put in our orders for some really good weather Very Happy
