Swansea/Pencelli 2017 - 1st & 2nd weekends of July

Postby Steve White » Sun May 14, 2017 10:47 am

This year are planning something a little different for our annual camping trip.

We will be heading down to Swansea on Friday 30th June and staying at Nicholston Farm campsite until Wednesday 5th July.
This is so we can enjoy enjoy the Wales national air show is being held at Swansea bay on the weekend of 1st & 2nd.

For those who have not been before, the air show is performed over the bay and viewed form the large crescent shaped beach surrounding the bay.
Because the display is over the sea it doesn't suffer from as many flying restrictions as some air displays, so the aircaft are free to show off all their tricks :D

At the time of writing, The red arrows, RAF Typhoon display and battle of Britain memorial flight are all confirmed.

On the Monday/Tuesday we plan to enjoy the the delights of the Gower Peninsular, which will probably include a walking as well as driving.

On Wednesday 5th we will then head over to Pencelli Castle Campsite, were we will be staying until Monday 10th July.
This weekend will follow the usual format for the weekend i.e. make it up as we go along and you do as little or as much as you want :lol: though there will no doubt be the usual spirited drive over the the Mynydd Epynt ranges one of the days :D

Anyone is welcome to join us for the some or all of the trip, just please let me know you are coming and book yourselves into the relevant campsite(s) for however long you which to stay.

If you are joining us in Swansea, we have booked a pitch in the 'Shop field' at Nicholaston farm, but the choice is yours. Please note you will be asked to pay a deposit (or possibly the full amount if only staying a night or 2) and they charge extra for larger tents (even for only 1 person) and for additional cars.

Or if you wish to join us at Pencelli, booking is done by simply calling 01874 665451 (deposit may be required). We have booked a pitch in the Meadow, but if you require an electric hook up pitches in the Orchard are only a short walk away.

Booked both campsites & the holiday to cover the full Swansea/Pencilli trip :-)
Now, just need to practice getting all the camping gear back into a MGF after the times of taking a saloon with all that extra space ;-)

Esra and I should be at Pencelli, we won't do the Swansea one, don't want to leave the cat in care for too long. Will discuss with Esra exactly what dates later on, but likely Thursday 6th to Monday 10th.

Provided you don't mind us turning up in a Nissan of all vehicles :oops:
