Anyone any recommendations on places to stay in Pontypridd?

Actually I've found somewhere that I couldn't previously find, so I can walk to the pub unlike last year!

I would love to come to the Bwlch, but having tried it for 2 years, I just found the drive etc exhausting - must be my age. I hope the weather gods bless you with some good lift.

Hiya Phil, yes am sorted, staying in an apartment near the river, within stumbling distance of the pub!

I'm getting there on Friday so I can have a good rest ready for two days flying!

Change of plan - my wife is having a girlie weekend because this was in the diary, so I have booked the Friday off work and will travel down then - hopefully get an extra day or half a day up the slope.

So - Harry - one extra for me - Cockles to start then the rack of lamb please.

Hopefully still some space at the guest house - we will see.

It looks like there's a sofa bed in the place I'm staying at if anyone is stuck for a place to stay. I don't snore much....

This is a regular occurance every year Martin. In fact I was at the Bwlch a couple of weeks ago flying on the south facing Back of Wrecker slope and could see a grass fire blazing over by the wind turbines, a bit further on from Mickey's slope. A fire engine went up there, we saw the smoke stop, then about an hour later the smoke began again.

Thanks Steve.

So hopefully the roads will be open. I would hate to drive for a couple of hours to get there and then find out I can't get to the slopes!
