if you're travelling as far as Aberystwyth, I often camp on the promenade toward the marina with no problems.
follow the road thro' the town to the seafront and turn left at the pier, just follow the road around and normally there'll be plenty of places to pitch and a few other vans :)

Hi Arthur,

take a look at the thread under Wales/Llangranog posted by chopper, very nice area, and close to New Quay. At the moment a school? of Dolphins a mile long are fishing in the area, what a site to see on your, cough, cough, Birthday. Road is a little tight in getting to Llangranog, don't know what size van you have, but worth the trip.
Have a great weekend, and a fantastic Birthday.

Happy Camping:)
Best wishes, Angela and Bill.

The only bit of advice I can give, is take plenty of waterproof clothing and wellies when going to Wales.

Cheers Big Trev.

When you have some time try out Pembroke,it's very beautiful,there's some quiet small coastal roads and miles and miles of dunes,plenty of history and nature reserves follow it down to the Gower coast,amazing then onto Swansea and back onto the M4 or why not the Welsh valley's and some history and sites on down to Newport and then M4 again or M5 or from the Valley's cut up to Abergavenny/Hereford and onto M5.

If you're in Swansea aim for Mumbles, there are a couple of places to pitch just off the side of the road opposite the Knab Rock car park, just below the cliffs. great little village with fantastic views also toilet facilities in the car park ;)

Ceredigion council seems quite against wild camping, plenty of unwelcoming signs in the car parks. Head inland a bit and there are plenty of good spots though.

A real gem is by Ceibwr Bay, near Moylgrove. A single track lane loops round from the village and there's a lay-by which you can't miss at 52.07759 -4.76354. No tv or internet reception, so take some socks to darn, or a book!

We have just come back from a great weekend on Anglesey:)
When we left home after 5pm on friday we were going to Betwesycoed:D
But we changed our minds;)
That is the beauty of a M/H.:cool::D
Old Arthur, if you are going to Anglesey, please pm me and I will let you have a great wild location.

Evening Arthur :)

Depends where you want to go in West Wales and how big your van is really.

A popular spot is Barmouth. An old victorian seaside resort where you can park up overlooking the lovely beach there. If you prefer to head inland and away from the crowds there's nooks and crannies where you can tuck yourself away for the night no problem :D

This is where we were


Stayed there a few times. Did you get bothered by the clown blasting her horn at 8am as she drives toward Beaumaris? Happens every time we visit.

We have spent 5 nights there and only heard one horn once and that was this time:D:D

Picnic area about 5 miles from Cardigan on River Teifi at GR SN 1980 4295. Public toilets and very quiet. 1/2 mile walk, up V. steep hill:eek:, to pub and shop in Cilgerran.

Nice harbourside parking in Porthgain about 8 miles West of Fishguard (GR SM815 325) Good (pricey)seafood retaurant and pub in village and beautiful beach at Abereiddi about a mile away.

Hi Aj,
I believe the council's are not allowed to Hedge brush at certain times, because of our little feathered friends nesting:D and wildlife in general. It would probably be better to travel in a larger van, say after 1st June, down some of the narrower lanes here in Wales. Don't know the exact date when the councils/farmers can cut again. Different area's have different dates, as do England and Scotland.
Hope you managed to get your scratches out of the van.


Happy Camping:)
Bill.
