The annual Wales Weekend will take place as usual on the second weekend in August, Friday 10th to Sunday 12th 2018.

Im putting this is the Members area first because we normally get some club funding and therefore its only fair that members get first shout on places before its rolled out to others. Some of the regular attendees have already asked me about this and have started booking accommodation so well keep a similar format to last year as things seemed to go fairly smoothly and if less things are changed, less should go wrong.

For any newcomers the format is departing on the morning of Friday 10th August with overnight stays on Friday and Saturday nights, a jolly days drive Saturday and return home on Sunday. The Friday morning departure isnt compulsory (some people may need to work) so if you cant travel up in the group, you can join us later.

Accommodation choices are camping, B&B or hotels in the Nefyn area of Gwynedd in North West Wales. The camping has been a slow starter in previous years but it gathered some momentum last year and hopefully this will continue. Possible choices locally area as follows:

Terfyn B and B
Lon Terfyn
Morfa Nefyn
LL53 6BA
01758 721332
http://www.terfynbedandbreakfast.com/

Llys Olwen Guest House
Lon Tan Y Bryn
Morfa Nefyn
LL53 6BT
01758 720493
http://llysolwen.co.uk/

Glascoed B and B
Lon Uchaf
Morfa Nefyn
LL53 6AL
01758 720151

Nanhoron Arms Hotel
St Davids Road
Nefyn
Pwllheli
Gwynedd
LL53 6EA
Tel: 01758 720203
http://www.nanhoronhotel.com/

Fairway Country Hotel
Lon Ilchaf
Morfa Nefyn
Gwynedd
LL53 6AD
01758 721888
www.fairwaycountryhotel.co.uk

For camping most people stayed here last year and it seemed ok. Graeanfryn Farm did do B&B as well but I believe this isnt now available but the camping is still on.

Graeanfryn Farm Camping
Morfa Nefyn
LL53 6YQ
01758 720455

Second option is a bit closer to Nefyn, no website and its fairly small site but its very popular for camping and gets good reviews:

Wern Caravan Park
Pistyll
Nefyn
LL53 6LN
01758 720432

Third option is just down the road from me, looks a nice site right next to the sea but might be worth checking access for kits because I know that the access road was a bit uneven:

Penisarlon Farm
Pistyll
Nefyn
LL53 6LR
01758 721553
http://www.penisarlonfarm.co.uk/home

Ive only stayed at the Nanhoron Hotel so I cant offer reviews on any of the others so if in doubt, see what the regulars are booking and try and bag a place there.

For the Saturday run out we will be going back to the Canolfan Prysor at Trawsfyndd again for late afternoon food. We popped in to see Beth there a few weeks ago and shes keen to see us there again this year so Im happy to return. Theyll sort out some meal choices and Ill post the details later.

On the Sunday morning Jackie is going to organise some horse riding for anyone thats interested which will probably be a 3 hour session. This can be tailored to all abilities so if youve always fancied a go, this could be the time to try it.

We want to give this the broadest appeal possible so if families want to come along but dont fancy the drive on the Saturday, theres plenty of other stuff to do in the local area and we can give details of that as well.

If theres any question, just ask.

Never had chance to join in on this trip before, but this year it is a bit quieter on the gig front, so I have reserved a room at the Nanhoron Arms.
