    Pembrey Country Park is great - great bike rides through forest and along coast. Fantastic beaches

    There is a site in the park and also a CC site adjacent

    If you love beaches, countryside, castles, national parks, culture & history etc Bill, Wales is definitely worth exploring.

    Hi Bill, Wales can be a terrific choice. Try the Gower peninsula, there are quite a few decent spots to wild camp at. The "King Arthur" pub in Reynoldston does wonderful freshly cooked food & Kim doesn't take liberties with prices, in other words its very reasonable. Pembrokeshire is more of the same, well worth exploring. Only thing as you head along the M4 is that when you get to Port Talbot you'll think you've arrived at the end of the world but for someone like yourself, you might well enjoy seeing the biting edge of heavy industry. After that the scenery just gets prettier & prettier. My wife recommends Margam park, she used to drive heavy horses around there. The World Rally Championship uses the park to great effect, so despite its proximity to Port Talbot the park is beautiful. No offence to any of our Welsh members, I really believe that heavy industry has a rugged beauty, but not everyone views the world in the way I do.

    We liked this one, it's just across the road from a disused gold mine and they run tours down the mines. Also some good walks in the area. Sorry, can't remember the price of the campsite or the mine tours, but it might be worth it for something a bit different, although I know you prefer to do DIY activities!

    There are some very beautiful areas in Wales, it's most certainly NOT a place to avoid! - Anglesey, south-west peninsula, Snowdonia, Black Mountains .....

    This is somewhere, I intend to take the grandson sometime http://www.showcaves.co.uk/, they have a camp site but it's on the pricey side, don't know if there are any small sites nearby.

    Abersoch is a lovely place. Great beach and village centre. Mix of sites price wise from the absolutely ridiculous to the OK. It often gets great weather in the summer too. We go a few times a year in the RV as my sister has a chalet there so we meet up with her and the family.

    I can also vouch for shell island. A lovely place, really relaxed, about 6 miles from Harlech I think. No EHU but fantastic coastline for walks, fishing, etc and good facilities on the site.
