    We usually tour, staying just a night then move on. The only place we keep going back to is Trawsdir in Barmouth, Wales. If anyone can tell me of a better site, please tell.

    Next to a farm on a hillside overlooking the sea, cheerful wardens, the best laid out site, still looks brand new - Radio 2 in the toilets! - No clubhouse or pool - just a first class site:thumb:

    Stayed there last night - £9 inc EHU ! - half price until Easter, then half price 'til Summer.:thumb:

    Try Shell Island, just down the road. £35 per week. I know it says Morocco but its in the wrong folder. The views are stunning, but although all facilities are there, there's no hookups.

    It sounded so lovely...until the Radio 2 bit....and the thought of Chris Evans greeting me each morning :Wink:

    This is going to make me sound sad (again) but......what's the mobile reception like on site, and did you try any kind of internet access? I often overlap my motorhome trips with work, so need some degree of communication.

    Now listen here, young man. If your young lady friend is with you then you don't need your computer..... just to let her know I will be keeping my eye on her to make sure she spoils you. It sounds ideal. No-one wished they had spent more time working when their time is up. xxxxxxx

    I'm not going there if they're atom bomb testing like they were in that 2nd photo! :BigGrin:

    Your sat-nav must be even worse than mine if that's the route it suggested...

    hi. i must agree shell island is a wonderful place,great location,superb views and great beach,only complaint is no hook up and probably never will be,and the shower block and toilets leave a lot to be desired. also been a few problems with theft from vans in the past thanks to a few undesirables. gets very busy at weekends and bank holidays.that said,it is a great place to be:Smile::Smile::Smile:

    Sounds lovely. I was charged £19 for one night on a New Forest site AND had to put 20ps in the lukewarm shower!!!

    Did they offer you the £9 per night because you are a regular. Website indicates £18 per night (unless I missed something)
