Weather forecast for Wales???

Postby Sleedale » 18 Mar 2013, 16:34

Hi all, we are planning on leaving snowy, wet, grey North Yorkshire for the (hopefully) sunnier climes of Tenby for a week, going Wednesday this week, to Wednesday next week, and I was hoping one of you lovely peeps from that neck of the woods might have an idea what weather might be in store for us? That is assuming the clonking noise doesn't reappear on the van between now and then, in which case it will be a week holiday at home! Some really good news would be appreciated folks, it's blummin horrid up here and I'm heading off to see my son, not seen him for lots of months so it'd be nice to get there.
Oh, and just in case Victor decides to clonk while we are there, anyone recommend a good VW type garage place (just in case :shock: )

Off to Tenby, via a stopover Wednesday night near Welshpool. Thought we would split the journey, we have two dogs and as it's supposed to be a holiday, not rushing. Hope to make it to Tenby on Thursday, still want a heads up on the weather, metcheck says Thursday/Friday rubbish, rain and windy, very windy, but sat, sun & mon so far look not bad - not tropical, but perhaps dry and some sun.

We haven't had the van that long, last August, and it's been fine, but we have had a random knocking from rear n/s. two garages, two mechanics can't find out what, but latest one did find a cable clip wedged up behind the wheel and brakes etc and said wheel bearing/cv joints seemed ok. I blummin well hope so.

Ah well, an adventure awaits. Can't wait to escape the blummin horrid snow/slush and muck up here. It looks sweet, but very wet, cold and grim.

My dear old foul-mouthed grandad used to say that "them that moan about f-in rain only do it cos they're usually f-in dry. You won't melt". Still not quite sure what he meant but I'm saying it now to mine (minus the f-in)

If you find any sun, leave a bit at Shell Island for Easter :ok

Well, got all happy, ready for off tomorrow, but decided to take Victor out for a decent run as he has only had short, short trips recently. Just to check if all is ok - well it isn't! The knocking noise returned once everything had warmed up nicely :cry: so, quick call to van doctor who made several phone calls for bits and Victor is going back in on Thursday, hopefully to be rid of the dreaded knocking noise for ever. We did debate taking the tent and gear and going anyway, but we sort of need to do this, and become more confident with the van. So, holiday delayed, we have to face more s*** ŵeather up in the frozen north and hopefully will make Tenby on Friday. Is getting very grey and dark up here now, blummin weather, makes me want to hibernate. :cry:

Hi Keith
if you go to the llyn peninsula would definately check out Uwchmynynd, campsite at top of the lane. Porth Ysgaden, wild camp overlooking the sea. Porth Iago, not campsite but farmer charges £8 for 24hr parking. Porth Ysgo, wild camp on small car park.
Beaches include Porth Oer (whistling sands), Hells Beach, Nefyn. Then seaside resorts like Aberdaron, Abersoch, Pwhelli
Lots of other small coves, beaches etc if you need a few more
ps take a spinning rod :pimp

Nice one....thanks for the tips. I will look them up when ive finished at my IT conference.... :roll:


As for the spinning rod....its standard kit and never leaves the van.....although i suspect the sea temp wont be conducive....
