Accomodation locations
« on: September 24, 2008, 11:57:39 AM »
I have put together a google map showing locations and descriptions of campsites, camping barns and bunkhouses near to places we go climbing.

Bunkhouses: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=214651288938198198443.000457a062123dc87a890&z=7

Campsites: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?hl=en&ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=214651288938198198443.000457a0c1b8b1a62d3ec&z=5

http://www.yrc.org.uk/content.aspx?Group=huts&Page=huts_other More barns here!

If anyone has any to add then just post some details. Helpful things are cost, booking number, facilities, any useful details if you visit (such as nearby pubs, crags).

If details change then let me know please.

http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/ - A really good website for finding campsites.

Many donkeys have tried to match wits with me, but almost all have failed.

Ok here are some I've stayed at and some I just know about, google for specifics.

Three tors bay camp site - gower
Bishops feid - bosherton - pembroke
North Lees camp site - below stanage
Campsite between birchens edge and gardoms edge
Tom's Feild - near swanage

I think we need some good one near Llanberris, and brimham rock.

Its the planned extension for the eastern underground line. Someone needed it for work so I thought I'd put it on incase it came up again.

I know it's not that relevant to this thread, but I found this a while ago:

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?msa=0&msid=103752880450485954674.00000112517cd26aa5348

It's a Google Map about Buildering in London and a bit of info on the routes etc...  Thought it could make for an interesting day out?

Got that one too. How about any bad campsites that people have stayed in? Probably due to price.

Walked out of one in N Wales after they wanted 10 per person per night plus 10 for the tiny tiny tent, this was about 10 years ago too.

Stayed the night first though :D

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&hl=en&geocode=&q=campsite&sll=53.250352,-1.588688&sspn=0.001151,0.002403&ie=UTF8&ll=53.250373,-1.588714&spn=0.000556,0.001711&t=h&z=20

This is a good campsite if you have forgoten to book anything and every where is full :-)  Bit of a walk from the car park and you have to carry all your gear up :(  nice pub though and if the farmer sees you walking up the track with lots of gear they will normally drive your stuff up for you :-)

There is also a crag within walking distance of the campsite :D  Great for the people who insists on getting up early and going climbing.
