Hi  everyone.   I have a headache searching all week for campsites, up and down, and across the country.  

The problem is finding something suitable for all of us; As my sister will be camping with me.  She may or may not bring her eldest son.  If she does, he will have a friend.  Then there will be 5 ( 1 adult and 2 15yr olds, 14yr, and 12yr)   Then there wil be me and DS.

It would be easier if she just brought her two youngest.   My Sis wants, EHU, play area, and somewhere to have a drink.  Sites which have reasonable tariff for her, works out expensive for the 2 of us.  Sis lives in London, I live on the Wirral, Transport is needed for Sis.   I will go the day before my Sis, I find it easier.  I erect my tent. Then sort hers out next day.  As i provide all the equipment except sleeping bags.  

I have a few idea's and looked at others.  HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All suggestions will be greatfully appreciated.

Get rid of the 'somewhere to have a drink' requirement and just take a bottle of wine and a couple of glasses!

How about finding a park that is close to a village? Many sites don't have a bar/pub facility on the site but they may have within walking distance.

I may have to suggest to sis we may have to review the requirements.  I am quite happy with a bottle of wine and a couple of glasses.   It does open up the search. Good idea Sullivan 2007.

Barmouth,  I shall have another at the area.  happycampers.

If you're looking at the Barmouth area, Ynys Faig in Fairbourne (the other side of the estuary) is directly opposite the station, nearer than it looks on the map on here and the other side of Beach Road.

Conwy tourist park, ticks all the boxes, and near to a railway station where you could pick your sister up from the next day.

There is also stunning scenery around the park which is situated on the Conwy estuary, park is within fit walking distance of the town centre and Castle, but the path is a bit hilly in places, so not suitable for the less mobile. Its about a 20 min walk for anyone whos young and fit lol.

Thanks folks, I have been looking at the sites suggested.  My Sis said she did'nt mind which area.  Believe it or not it made it difficult,  lol.    I think I had a look at the majority of the Counties. 

 My mind went totally numb hahaha, is that possible.  I have seen loads for me and DS.

I will get there in the end.

Yippeeee, I have booked  Inside Park, in Dorset. It's a bit of a trek,  but, I have booked a travel lodge;   so I'm doing an over nighter.   I'm staying for 5 nights, Sis can only do a couple of nights.   It looks as if they have a fab playground,  Should be well occupied.

lol no hook up,  That does'nt really matter,  Planning to go to the beach somewhere,  The Blue Pool looks really nice. 

Fingers cross for good weather.
