    We will be staying at the Pen Y Bont caravan park from the 9th to the 14th of April.
    Never stayed there before but it is in a good location.
    Depends if you are going after us, but I will post a review on the site as soon as we get back.
    Web site is www.penybont-bala.co.uk so you can have a look for yourself and see what you think.

    Within Snowdonia itself there are quite a few sites, Bala is quite a way off from the mountains, I would have a look around Beddgelert which is quite handy for some of the mountain walks /climbs up and around Snowdonia.

    If you like real ale, steam trains and views of Snowdonia try this place http://www.snowdonia-park.co.uk/. We stayed there last July but we could not see the mountain, but the beer was good ( and they lets dogs in the pub ).:BigGrin:

    I have camped (tent) at Bala in my dim and distant past and never felt it was far from the mountains. I used to teach mountain leadership and safety as one of my "jobs" in the Army. It's sometimes nice to go somewhere that you don't have to climb over all the walking gear to get into a pub. :BigGrin:
    We will be taking the m/bike anyway, so it should be fairly easy to get around. Plus having the bike will keep me out of the pubs during the day :thumb:

    Hi, I think you have knocked the nail on the head, having your bike to get around will make all the difference, just if you want to leave your van parked up Beddgelart is a bit easier.
    Its all fairly local for us so I expect its how you percieve it, all very beautiful though.
