  • Snowdonia Campsite
  • How about the snowdon ranger youth hostel? Sort of like comfortable warm camping!

    There’s some around Capel Curig, across from the road from the pub, but I would be working harder to dissuade her!

    I would agree, tough camping with the current weather, might put the young un off for life

    Nant Peris has good campsite opposite Vaynol Arms pub, on the sherpa bus route, so easy to get about/too /from– will need warm kit though, but great adventure– bit of adversity harms no one..

    Bryn Tyrch Farm for me, basic camping. Cheap as chips, and not far to stumble back from the pub.

    Not to everyone’s tastes though due to limited facilities. I found them ok though, but when I go away for a couple of days in Scotland I usually sleep in the car or a bivvy bag and crap in a hole in the ground.

    If you decide to posh it up and go for a b and b instead, there is a converted chapel in Capel curing opposite the shop/cafe which is v good. The bus runs from outside the cafe too so you can leave your car at the b and b.

    My daughter (11 year old) has decided we should be camping / hill walking some time during her easter holidays… I’m not sure its such a ‘hot’ idea at the moment, but always….

    Any recommendations on campsites we should go to next week ? Small tent with a dog in tow… Thinking Snowdonia. Walking from the door with a pub nearby would be our idea.

    Ideas / recommendations gratefully received.

    Thanks

    Thanks guys, I’ll check those out. Definitely her pushing for camping not me… Checking these ideas out, no budget for a cottage / B&B and the youth hostels I’ve tried are full so far anyhow.

    MBA has a couple of bothies on its books in Snowdonia, offers a bit more shelter than camping if weather is iffy?

    It’s a bit snowy up there at the moment. Personally go when warmer

    Conditions are treacherous in the Hills at the moment, if you are walking the hills please be well prepared the avalanche risk normally small in the SNP is very high due to unstable wind slabs and Cornice. (Crampons,ice axe essential)

    It’s been a very busy few days for the MRT’s with people not carrying the correct kit, this is the latest

    I was in the Glyders this weekend. It’s full winter conditions so certainly think about going out only if prepared and experienced. As per link above, Mountain Rescue have been manic…

    A camping barn will be warmer and still cheap, although may be full of hairy climbers…

    Cwm Idwal round by the lake is relatively accessible with proper walking boots but tbh there’s so much snow round there you’ll be very limited to what you can do…
