This week was spent at Ty Mawr holiday park as part of a privately organised camp for Husky owners. Ty Mawr is a large park consisting of static caravans which can be let for a short break or purchased for the more regular visitor. They also have a touring field with EHU and a camping field.
We arrived last Friday and after booking in and being told we can take any pitch we want within “The Meadows” (the touring field) we pulled into the field and headed for a good spot near the toilet and shower blocks. As we approached and noticed the big Portaloo slogans across the small cluster of buildings visions of rock concerts and filthy, smelly toilets filled my head and the thought of “this is not going to be good, and were here for a flipping week”. Never mind we have everything we need on board just be handy to be close to a tap as going to need to fill up with water a lot more often. So we moved quick smart like to a pitch within reach of a tap.
On the third day Ann decided to venture over there to have a look anyway and came back having showered to report that the womens showers were clean and warm. Maybe so I said but bet the mens aint. Next day, I buckle out of curiosity and venture over to be pleasantly surprised to find them warm and clean. The showers are well laid out with your own changing cubicle with a shower cubicle within. Small but quite nice and the temperature of the water is controlled by you, another bonus.
In the leaflets we got on arriving giving details of all the activities and events going on in the park they boast “Park Wide Super Fast Wi-Fi”. Park wide it is, well when its working, which seems to be a bit random. Fast it is NOT no where near, in fact no where near quite quick let alone super fast. Although it is usable very early in the morning but thats probably because I am the only one using it.
The site has a good range of activities during the day and evening but I cannot comment on these as we spent all our time with the other Husky owners and the activities they organised. It was great to see our two girls mixing and having fun with so many of their own breed and feel they enjoyed the week way more than us.
The most amusing moment for me was as we walked a large pack of about 20 dogs through the caravan park, to access the beach near by, the number of people that came out to watch us pass.
