    • Snowdon challenge May 2014

      Snowdonia May 4, 2014 at 4:29 AM

      Hi there folks. Would first of all like to say I AM taking this very seriously, I will be fully prepared and fully kitted up. I have 4 weeks planning and getting mu kit together with 2 weeks left. I am going to attempt doing all 6 official ascents to the Summit of Snowdon. Starting May 19th to the 23rd 2014. I am physically ready but still training in preparation. The logistics of my kit took 2 weeks of planning and although some people think my kit may be over the top, I do not care as I will be prepared for almost any scenario. I have to do 2 routes on the same day and was planning to do the Snowdon ranger and the Rhyd Ddu path starting at 8am, straight up and down, of course depending on weather. Not doing this to prove a point, just set myself a personal challenge. My facebook page is Snowdonia challenge May 2014 absolute any advice is welcome or if you fancy joining me on any of the routes, please do shout up, thanks Steve

      3-4 days in Wales

      Wales Apr 27, 2014 at 8:18 AM

      As usual I have less time than I'd like to explore an area but I can always go back, right? We're traveling in mid August which I'm guessing is peak season and this is my rough idea right now

      Monday we have tickets to Highclere in the morning and will head to Wales I'm guessing midday, some possibilities for the afternoon, depending on timing getting out of Highclere, are Tintern Abbey (open til 6) or Caerphilly (open til 6). If we were to reach either of these by 4pm, could they be reasonably visited in a couple of hours? Tintern appears to be a slightly shorter drive. Monday night I've prebooked a hotel in Cardiff that can't be changed

      Tuesday options include Caerphilly if we don't stop on Monday, visiting sights in Cardiff, Kidwelly Castle, Carreg Cennan, a drive on the Gower Peninsula. Mr. Dabs ears perked up when I mentioned the Big Pit Coal Museum north of Cardiff. Overnight? Not sure yet but maybe in the general area of either Kidwelly or Carreg Cennan

      Wednesday drive north, is the west coast route more scenic than the interior route? I have a cancellable reservation at Ruthin Castle but it's looking like it's not going to work. Portmeirion looks like an interesting stop, Caernarfon looks interesting, Harlech looks interesting. That route will go through part of Snowdonia National Park. If I change my overnight, maybe closer to Conwy?

      Thursday Conwy Castle in the morning, maybe Bodnant Gardens and then make our way to Liverpool. There's nothing particular I'd like to see in Liverpool, more of a I'd like to say I stopped there so we may just overnight near there and move on Friday morning. Since we have a car, we'll probably look for something just outside Liverpool

      Friday morning Blackpool, Mr. Dabs wants to see it and since he's driving me around England and Wales, I'd like to oblige. Friday afternoon, drive to Manchester, drop the car and head to London by train, just going to sleep there so a late train is fine

      I know I'm going to have to cut some of these things, I'm also concerned that at some point I'll have castle overload. I was looking at an explorer pass that had almost everything on my list on it so perhaps we can stop at a couple of the castles, take a couple of photos but not spend 2-3 hours at each one.

      Have I missed anything really special? Of my Tuesday options, are there any you recommend more highly than the others? Kidwelly got on my list because of Monty Python originally but I'll be seeing Doune up near Edinburgh earlier in the trip so it's not a must. The rest of the trip is 4 1/2 days in Edinburgh, Lyme Park, Chatsworth House, Highclere (aka Downton Abbey, I have tickets) and one full day in London which I've visited many times.

      A good route from the Kidwelly/Carreg Carren area to Portmeirion? Is there a nice coastal drive? A drive that passes through some interesting towns? It looks to be out 3 hours driving by the fastest route but maybe by that point we'd rather see some scenery as opposed to more sights.

    • Catching train after taking ferry from Dublin to Holyhead

      Holyhead Mar 12, 2014 at 8:17 AM

      We will be traveling in June from Dublin to Holyhead and then on via train towards Birmingham. We are wondering if making a reservation for the train is advisable. Problems I see with this are delays in the ferry and the length of disembarkation at Holyhead (we are US citizens). We'd prefer to make train reservations but aren't sure how much time we'd need to catch the train. Any experience info or advice would be great!

      While my family and I are visiting the UK, we will have an opportunity to spend a couple days in Bath. While there we were looking at close places to visit that would be worth our while. Is Cotswold a good place to do that we could spend the day then go back to Bath? Anyone have other ideas? Yes we will be getting a rental car.

      Best method to go from Mancester to Treuddyn & then on to Holyhead for the ferry to Dublin

      I am looking for all comments and suggestions on traveling from Mancester to Treuddyn this summer. We would stay overnight in the Treuddyn area, then on to Holyhead for the ferry to Dublin. I normally prefer public transportation and the train though am not at all familuar with trains in Wales. Though, I understand there is bus service to Treuddyn. All comments are greatly appreciated. I was there once by car, a UK friend drove, and know it is a small village where my ancestors, Pulford, were born and I want to visit again. A car rental in not out of the question if it makes sense.

      Accommodations recommendations, good pubs, restaurants and all comments appreciated. Has anyone been to Llandeilo and is there a taxi service? What is there to see and do in this small village? We are going there, by train from London Paddington via Swansea, likely in August. Can anyone recommend a hotel and a genealogy researcher as my ancestors came from Llandeilo on the river Towy? Their surnames are Pulker and Peacock.

      Sorry, I would have posted this under Llandeilo not Swansea but, VT doesn't know this location though it is shown on the VT map.

As I recall, it was painted white....maybe some half-timber. I do recall that darts was a feature at this pub. Does anyone know if it's still in existence. Could it have been turned into a pizzeria?
