Holyhead has the advantage of safe moorings, bogs & showers. (At the risk of infringing rule #5, but I'm not going, so I'm ok)

Just looking for options Matt which can't be a bad thing, and if other people are on there before us then maybe there will not enough grass space to pitch the tents. Last thing we want to do after a days is get there and for whatever reason find that we can't get on to camp for the night.

Would be nice if we could get a couple of regular ribbers to do a recce for us.

Holyhead grasslands is another option if its still as it was when we camped on it 3 years ago maybe Fester could take a look at that one for us as he has a caravan in Holyhead
Llanddwyn is not an option unfortunately
Porth Wen is ok but as said not for a crowd
Oh! the nearest campsite to Llanddwyn is just over a mile away
On the north east coast there is a sight that has a beach right next to it. At Lligwy but it dries out quite far and is very shallow so about 1 hour either side of high water max I would say
Years ago I did camp at Abermenai (just opposite Chris's Ty Calch) but haven't seen many lately
Once I camped at Llanddwyn but arrived at Dusk and scarpered before first light
The grassy knoll at Holyhead seems yer best bet!

We could make the brick yard first option I google it the other night & it looks like there's plenty room on there if we can't get on the brick yard for any reason we can always head over to Holyhead breakwater as second option & camp on the grass land there I think they charged us 18 for the moorings last time we camped & you can use the bogs & showers for that price I don't think we'd have any problems on there all we need now is some good weather 🌞😎👍& plenty 🎣

the grassy knoll at holyhead has a banking of hardcore around it now - i dont know if thats to stop people from camping there, or just to stop Caravan Utilising Nomadic TravellerS from parking up. i can take another look though and check it out
