    We pick up our new (to us) van on Thursday (very excited!) and are going to Dave Newall on Friday to have the external filler point for the gas fitted. We then would like to continue on to a site somewhere in Wales, approx. 2 hours drive from Telford and stay for the weekend. We have a very elderly dog who can't walk very far so we would ideally like a dog friendly pub within an easy walk away (no more than 15 mins at a snails pace).
    I have been looking at Trawsdir Touring site near Barmouth which looks beautiful and although the pub is within walking distance it has had some awful reviews.
    Do anyone have a better suggestion? Thanks.

    Traswsdir is a nice site, but remote. The pub isn't great so I hear….Its then a long walk to the Barmouth Pubs.

    Cwumcuttan looks lovely but not really suitable for us whilst we have our elderly dog.
    Think we'll try The Horse and Jockey at Churchstoke recommended by Journeyman - many thanks.

    For info, the Hendre Mynach site at the north end of Barmouth is open all year, and is very close to the seafront for level beach walks, but is about a mile from the town centre and pubs.

    If you ever head down to The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, there's a fairly straightforward field plus showers campsite with no Electric Hookups behind the huge flat beach at Newgale, and that has a pub next door.

    Heading back North again there's various campsites around Abersoch on the Lleyn Peninsula within walking distance of the village centre.

    What a great web site, lots of pictures (speak a thousand words), pity about no pub but will pay a visit soon, have added it to favourites. We are down that way this weekend, wish I had found it before we booked.:Sad:
