Wales Trip Late May Bank Holiday Weekend

Recommended Posts

I've been talking about this for a while and I know a few people had expressed interest so I figured I would throw up a post and see who is up for it.

Basic plan is this:

Dates: Saturday 23rd May - Monday 25th May (Which is a bank holiday)

Where: Elan Valley, Mid-Males

The Plan:

23rd May - Meet up for Breakfast at cafe near me (WV16 area), once we and the cars are full, follow a pre-set route to Elan Valley - 80miles

24th May - Run out around mid-wales taking in various stops for lunch, refreshments , fuel etc -150miles
Planned stops include Corris Craft Centre and Tregaron Kite Centre.
Dinner out somewhere together at the end of the day.

25h May - Possibly do something on the Morning (open to suggestions) then head home - Have a different route planned back in the general direction of mine should people want to do that which is about 65miles.


My original plan was to have done a reccy run before now and tested out the routes, but with breaking the kit for spares and starting the new project, I havent had chance, but knowing the area reasonably well, I think it should be a decent route with enough fuel stops for even @Andi to make it round without too much fear of running out of petrol!

In terms of accommodation, having had a quick look around Rhayader looks ideal with plenty of options at sensible money.  This link will show you some of the options locally https://tinyurl.com/vsovo6u

Also a campsite very close by that looks reasonable for those who prefer aluminium or canvas roofs https://www.campsites.co.uk/search/campsites-in-wales/powys/rhayader/wyeside-camping-and-caravanning-club-site

So, if you are interested, drop your name below.  I'm not sure what I will be driving yet, but if it comes to it, I'll just take the Scooby again.

This is definitely happening now, so book your accommodation and leave a comment below with where you are staying so I can add you to the list - Also just to say, I cant vouch for any of the accommodation I have listed below, just lisited the ones close to where I have booked that are reasonably priced.

Brill :) I will mention it to those at the Mids meal tonight, but I think as long as there is a few of us up for it then it will be go-er.

I am a 'maybe'!  I have a possible gig on the Saturday night, but it is not confirmed yet.  If that doesn't come off, then this sounds like fun.

Having spoken to a few people last night and confirmed along with those of you that had replied there is definitely interest, this is one is a go-er.  I have booked into the Elan Hotel for Sarah and Me, will start a list at the top of who has and booked and where.

Ok jumped the gun a bit but the first hotel I found with extra large beds was The Swan Country House B&B in Rhayader, Saint Harmon, LD6 5NG 3.5 miles away.

So we are booked in there for 2 nights. We will stay over locally on the Friday night and meet up where ever on the Sat Morning.

Having had to miss the August Wales Road Trip for the past couple of years ... EXTREMELY disappointed - our children and their families can only go away during school holiday time and we all meet up abroad as a large family.

This May trip would be an outstandingly brilliant alternative ... but we have planned a wedding anniversary trip away ....

 

How can such happy family events cause such disappointments?! At this rate I'll forget how to drive my hoodie!

Have a superb 'weekend' one and all - it will be a fabulous event.
