Just got back from a fab camping holiday in Wales! Found a lovely little camp site at Pontrug, just outside Caernarfon. Small site, garden centre (bonus!), by a river under the trees. Small trauma after the second night when the river threatened to burst it's banks and I insisted we move the tent, but it didn't take us too long and the river subsided. And then the sun came out!

There was myself and hubby, our three boys and hubby's two grandchildren, ages of kids: 15, 14, 10, 4 and 2. They all got on really well, were well behaved and great fun to be with! We rode the Ffestiniog railway; the Great Orme tram between the Orme and Llandudno; visited the Great Orme Copper mines; visited Henblas Farm Park on Anglesey; had a boat ride into the Menai strait; rode the train to the summit of Snowden and flew kites on the beach at Dinas Dinlle. A lot in 5 days! But I never did get chance to shop in the garden centre!

It was also a maiden trip for our new tent - a fabulous Vango Diablo 900xp. Loads of room; easy to put up; cosy and waterproof - highly recommended!
