We have picked up our first M/H today and off to Wales tomorrow for 10 days. It our anniversary on Saturday, I have not booked anywhere but wish in the area west of Snowdonia. Can anyone suggest a campsite where we could get a good meal, without travelling?

I'm struggling with the whole M/H strategy of not pre-booking. We are coming from east North/Essex coast and trying work out how far to do tomorrow and where to do our first night in her, as the total journey would be too much on a busy Friday. Again any suggestions would be welcome. I will need to get sorted in the morning, either CS or a BritStop.

Many thanks.
I'm sure I will get the hang of it once I have been away a few times

It's rare to find full sites anywhere in Wales, and if you do, there is always another nearby. Have a great trip in the new motorhome and enjoy your anniversary (y)

Hope you have a good trip, if you get around North Wales, Lots. Of sites on Anglesey, also around Conway, if you want there are lots of pretty little campsites in Snowdonia.

Abersoch is surrounded by campsites, and there's a good choice behind Black Rock Sands near Porthmadog, ranging from basic field plus tap to posh with hard standings and EHUs for all. Further down, Shell Island (near Llanbedr) springs readily to mind, and Hendre Mynach at Barmouth.

Further North there's the Conwy Touring Park which is outside the town, but watch your wing mirrors on the archway just after you cross the big bridge - tight but possible.

I'd consider using the M11/A14 to get up to the M6 rather than M25/M1.

A14 and M6 every time but avoid the M6 toll.

An alternative is to go up the M1 instead of M6 at the A14/M1/M6 junction and take the A50 at Donington J23a, hitting the M6 at Stoke J15. No tolls and no Brummy queues either

Or turn right at the Britannia Stadium and go up the A500 to join at J16, which takes about the same time but cuts out any M6 congestion.

Agreed about the A50 option though - have used it many many times and it's a good road.

If the M6 looks shite Northbound at J16 cut straight across West via Crewe/Nantwich bypasses to Wrexham then make it up from there - all sorts of options available.

Yes, good point though I rarely do that nowadays as never really experienced delays at J15
