Everyplace we've camped had open fire pits. And, some of the hardest ground on the planet. :lol:

Can you order the rain to test it when you're somewhere else other than North Wales - we get enough already :harhar:

Sorry i can't join you Maynard, i have reached Barmouth and will be heading south from there (probably saturday).
If you are doing a day trip to Anglesey do call in at the pub (Y Goron) in Aberffraw, real friendly, lots of welsh spoken and they let me put my tent up in the back garden for free, now thats what i call a hikers pub. (do say the tortoise sent you).
Cheers J.P.

I had one day when it was rain from start to finnish, but mostly it has been dry with rather chilly nightts, check my daily blog for details, i hope the information on where i camped may be of use to others but bear in mind its only the places is stoppe and many were passed. If you go to the pub in Aberffraw and say the tortoise sent you i will be very interested in the response. They were very easy going about welsh learners.
Cheers J.P.

Noswaith dda! Campinmygarden.com has lots of people on the north wales coast. Its usually cheap (£5pppn) and you might strike it lucky with a welsh host! Our garden is on (near bala), but Dwi'n dysgu Cymraig only, but happy to practice anytime!

Hi campers,
I am from the Pen Llŷn and have a camp site, just the basics, but our farm is on the sea and it is nice private and friendly, just say you are ssiw and I will know.
Adult 3 pounds per night
Children 3 pounds per night
My husband is half welsh (7th generation here) and I am a kiwi learning welsh... 3 years now.
So if you near Llangwnadl, LL538NT, Moel y Berth campsite pop in and say hello.
kindest regards
Joanna

thats fantastic Joanna, i m going camping again in June so I'd like to do Llŷn this time. :cariad: I just got back last night from a few days camping in N Wales (again). The weather was a bit wet to say the least. Think yesterday was almost torrential. I stayed in Aberystwyth the first night as I wanted to spend the morning in the National Library. I wanted to read a book ( one i used to own and had accidently thrown out some time ago)and look at the exhibitions . Then i stayed on a site just outside Bala. Liked Bala , love their dialect . arghhh and there's a friendly pub called the ship/ y Llong. :dafad: :dafad:
