Have been away for a week to Pembrokeshire buggerme was it wet at the start of the week never seen rain like it. Actually what am I saying that's a lie I live in Wales, but still. Twas hard work with 20 month old thank the Lord we have a ginormous tent. (also thanks to Slubber for song was useful)

End of week was lovely though and wonderful campsite owners were giving away free mackrel for dinner and got us a lobster (!) to grill on Campfire on last night was lush. Not sure where that lies in the glamping/minimalist camping hierarchy smile

Best things we took with us hot chocolate and a can of squirty cream smile, tent carpet (i know but is so nice and warm) and Fat Airics - oh but they are soooo good.

Trellyn Woodland camping in Abercastle they don't have many pitches so get pretty booked up. Owners are total gems have teepees and yurts too there but we can't afford that.

It must be a Welsh thing teh tentc arpets, converts ourselves.

We go to a similar site in pembrokeshire actually and I am mean, only ten pitches so won't name blush

The welsh rain- ah yes. Was a shock whgen we moved here, quite unlike the Somerset variety

Peachy this site only has 4 camping pitches shock but is so nice we booked straight away for this year last year.

Do you have an Outwell too? actually do other tents have carpets?

I love living in Wales though rain be dammed!

Outell yes, though we ahd one with our Khyam before as well.

Like Wales also, we were fortunate to land in a baeautiful place (Caerleon if you know it).

And rain is always only an issue if you don't have the right clothes, no? grin


(PS my site is called Ty Park but don't tell anyone wink)

Ty Parke looks v. similar to Trellyn and not far away this is what campsites should be like!

Don't know Caerleon but go past that area often as live near Hay/Brecon and visit rellies in Brizzle. We are not Welsh ourselves have lived all over the place including Somerset (Taunton).
