Llanwrtyd Wells

It’s time to pack up the van and move on. We take our time and leave Springrock around midday.

First stop is Tesco where we do a small shop, mainly milk and bread. No masks required here yet.

We are only going 20 miles up the road to Llanwrtyd Wells. Tony would really like to stop at Bliuth Wells on the way but as we aren’t organised, we struggle to park so end up driving through instead. We need a decent sized car park so really should have sussed one out in advance.

Our base for the next two nights is Plas Y Cadno campsite , a sloping field on a working farm about 0.5mile outside Llanwrtyd Wells. No electric hookups here. It was difficult to find available sites for the weekend so choices are limited. It’s hard to believe it’s more expensive than the last site as the facilities are a lot more basic and the setting not nearly as lovely. However we can walk to the pub.

We set up on grass as the hardstanding appears to be the road through the site. We are very much hoping we don’t get stuck but the ground seems firm enough. The place is teeming with campers and the odd van so we stick out a bit!

We manage a late lunch outside before the drizzle starts, followed by some chill time.

Early evening we walk down into town, which according to the sign is the smallest in Wales and Britain.

We have a good wander around. The river Irfon runs through the centre.

Enjoy a pint in the Nueadd Arms Hotel which is the official headquarters of the Monster Raving Loony Party complete with Screaming Lord Sutch memorabilia.

A second pint is downed sitting outside the Bellvue Hotel. Both pubs are friendly.

We end our evening with dingish meals from Tesco warmed in the oven as we don’t have a hook up and the microwave doesn’t work. Lovely firepit to sit around though which is how we end our day.
