Re: Mountain fire in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

Sorry but of topic question. Anyone got a good family friendly campsite recommendation near snowdonia but also near a good beach? I've camped at one nearer Porthmadog than the black sands one but we're looking for another site, perhaps nearer snowdonia. Is there somewhere near Barmouth? How far fro...

Re: Mountain fire in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

I must confess the Great Orme isn't on my cycling "to do" list, as I tend to stick to 300+ metre passes. fausto. But it is a fantastic but short ride around it. Pretty unique. It has fantastic vistas and the geology is interesting. Not much traffic off season. And one way. Recommend it if...

Re: Mountain fire in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

Going off topic a bit here, but just managed to find another copy of Anne Forrest's "My Whole World" for my sister-in-law, who will be visiting from France later this week. It's a birthday pressie for her, as she visited it often as a child with her younger sister, Mrs. Copy. Objection ove...

Re: Mountain fire in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

Yes Mike, that's what I intend to do. The Crimea Pass is definitely on my "to do" list and I'd like to spend more time touring the area, though I can't stop Mrs. Copy from wanting to revisit Penmaenmawr :roll: (which isn't one the Wales' most attractive towns either :wink: ).

Re: St. Martins or Overton cafe

Just an update to say that I took my cycling group to Cafe Enfys and were treated like royalty. I don't know if they baked the delicious sponge cakes especially for us (I'd rung them a few days in advance to ask if we'd be welcome) but what a treat. The coffees were excellent too and I'm so glad we ...

Re: Mountain fire in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

To be perfectly honest I wouldn't call Blaenau Ffestiniog ugly. I think it's got character and I much prefer seeing the existing local shops lined along the main street rather than the huge multi-nationals polluting this land. I've only been able to drive through couple of times, but like to slow do...

Re: Other hobbies - cabinetmaking

Awesome stuff again, though I'd never heard of Hereford ladder back chairs and neither had my son who lives in Hereford and had trouble locating a couple of dining chairs.

Re: Induction hobs - your experience(If you have one!)

Quite a topical one here, as friends of ours visiting t'other day said that they'd just fitted one during a refurb.
The main factor was the kitchen showroom saying they weren't going to stock or sell gas hobs / cookers as they are about to be banned by the gub'ment.
