  1. If it survived Storm Callum at FF Mick, I'm sure it survived the winter. See you there.
  2. Thanks for confirming Danny, Have a look at the top of this thread at the campsite web page it is in yellow. All the tariffs are there. On arrival park in car park and pay at either the Office or house. Both are just a few yards from the entrance. Everything is signposted.
  3. The Bookings list above has been updated. Not long to go chaps. Just over 2 weeks for me. Can't wait.
  4. That will be great Danny, more the merrier.
  5. Yes they can but there will be an additional fees for the extra campers, not sure about the tent though.

    ISS trip home.

    Just returned from my tour on the ISS. Left the Soyuz return module parked at The Cardiff National Museum. It's there til Sunday. Great few hours at the museum at the Tim Peake display, with a very interesting virtual reality experience. The whole return to home sequence from launch from ISS, the flight through space into earth's atmosphere and landing. The full 360° view from Tim's seat was amazing, well worth the £6.

    Fforest Fields - Dark Skies

    I use the site frequently, and have been there with a few members of the South Wales Astronomy Group (SWAG). Unfortunately, we were there during Storm Callum last October but still managed a few good nights. I agree the skies there are dark and among the best in the country. Campsite lights are very minimal with the best pitches to avoid stray light are in the events field.
  8. Me too, just hope the weather plays ball.
  9. Thanks Calvin, I was probably having another senior moment.
  10. Yes the Google maps are up to date unless something has changed over the winter. All the pitches on the field we use have EHU, which is The Oaks.
  11. The Bookings list above has been updated.
  12. Sounds interesting Danny, looking forward to having a peep.
  13. The Brecon Beacons has its own microclimate most of the time. We have had snow blizzards, torrential rains and heat waves in March. There is a mix of tents and caravans, trailer tents and motorhomes. Pencelli cater for all.
  14. The Bookings list above has been updated.
  15. Here is a Google Site Map for those unfamiliar with Pencelli Castle. It will give you some idea where the trees are if you are looking for a specifically view of the sky.
