"My wife and I traveled 200 miles to A and N Caravan to have our Burstner Motorhome repaired after  my local caravan dealer told us it will be £600 plus, to repair. 

We arrived in Wales the night before. This man was fantastic, well worth the travel. Fixed in only 20mins and Guess what? Total cost 1 hr labour. 

If this man say's he can fix it, let him. He could have taken £300 off us and we would have happily payed it. WELL DONE Allan".

A and N Caravan Services are based in County Conwy, North Wales. 

Most of the equipment we repair and supply can be fitted in North Wales at the Caravan site listed below. 

If you need any work carried out but you live further away then maybe a short break in beautiful North Wales is the answer? We can work on your Motorhome or Caravan while you enjoy your visit to what is becoming recognised as one of the best spots in the UK, see below for more details.

North Wales gets voted "2017, 4th Best Destination in the WORLD" by the Lonely Planet.     

Llandudno also makes it into the 2016 Top 10 Best UK Destinations by Trip Advisor

Did you know that Llandudno's Great Orme has an all weather Ski Slope, a 4,000 year old Bronze Age Copper Mine, the only Cable Tramway in Britain, a Sky Cable Car and the famous Cresta 'Toboggan' run? 

Along with the likes of nearby Zipworld and Surf Snowdonia, North Wales is becoming known as the adventure playground of the UK.

Nearby Bodnant Garden is a must, even when the Laburnum  Arch isn't in Flower.

How we Operate :-

There is a Touring site near to Llandudno that will allow us to work on your vehicle while you 'holiday'. 

It is Tan Y Bryn Farm Campsite  a small gently sloping site high on hills with spectacular views of the Little Orme and the sea. From £14 a night it has optional electric hook-up and a small Toilet/shower block. 

Once you have agreed a date with us, then mention when you book that you are having work done by us and that we are paying the first night.  

See this link for Campsite Contact details and directions http://www.tanybrynfarm.com/contact.php

When you look out to Sea from the site, on the left most side is Angel Bay in Penrhyn Bay where you can often view Seals on the Beach. 

Penrhyn Bay Beach is one of the best Sea Bass fishing beaches in the UK, apparently. Angel Bay is about 5 miles from the Caravan Site.

 The Queens Head in Glanwydden Village (top National awards for food), is about 1.8 miles away. Ask for details of this wonderful Pub at the site. 

If you want us to carry out work, we come to you at this site, we won't work at any other locations, just this site

When a date is agreed with us, you then book yourself into the site and confirm with us. We will see you on the appointed day. We will then try and put right whatever is the problem.  

We have no issues with you being in the vehicle while we work, watching and asking questions. No problem either with Dogs or other animals while we work.

Alternatively you can go off and enjoy a day out somewhere.

If the issue requires a lengthy repair, we will endeavour to return the MH to habitable use by the evening and return to continue the work the following day. This has only ever happened once, most repairs are carried out within 2 - 4 hours. 

We pay your first night, regardless of whether you stay or depart early. 

Our hourly rate is £49 for the first hour and £39 per hour thereafter, but this is dependent on the job in hand.

This is Llandudno's Victorian Sea front with the Great Orme as a back drop. You can just see one of the Cable Car pylons on the top of the Great Orme, centre of picture. 


If you do visit us and want to explore Anglesey afterwards, there is a Caravan Club CL on Anglesey situated in the grounds of a 100 Vehicle museum of Classic Cars, Military vehicles, Agriculture, Motor Bikes, etc. close to Newborough and Beach. 

It has 230v EHU, Toilets and Shower room, Cafe, etc 

See : http://www.angleseytransportmuseum.co.uk/anglesey-attractions

The site is perfect for exploring all of Anglesey. Newborough Beach is close by and described in one of the guides as , "Awesome long beach with nice views of Gwynedd, Snowdonia and the mountains plus the Llyn Peninsula".

In addition to the usual site pitches, they have recently set up some 'mobile homes' with a difference, see photo below of these two military vehicles converted to 'Motorhomes' :  

Both available for use on the site as a B&B style option.

Out towards South Stacks Light house can be found the last working Windmill in Wales, Llynnon Mill.

Part of the complex has two Stone Age Round Houses recreated to be as they were in the Stone Age.

Also on the complex is a lovely Cafe. the Cafe is open all year, but the Windmill and Roundhouses are only open Easter to October, although you can get within yards of the Windmill virtually any time. 

Back on the main land, the small, friendly Airport (and museum) of Caernarfon, formerly RAF Llandwrog and located 4 miles southwest of Caernarfon, delighted our two young children for hours. We not only saw around 10 light planes take off/land, right in front of our eyes, but also the Welsh Air Ambulance Helicopter, the new Red and White Air Sea rescue Helicopter and an RAF Valley training Helicopter. 

The RAF Helicopter, we think, was on a training flight, but to us looked like our very own special Air Display as he landed, took off, practised flying backwards, etc.


You can easily spend a whole week being entertained in the Victorian town of Llandudno. 

The Great Orme just above Llandudno has Bronze age Copper Mines, a Ski slope, a Tram, the longest Sky Ride Cable Car in the UK and the World famous Cresta 'wheeled Toboggan' run. 

The above is a picture of a 'Grown-Up' using his child as an excuse to have some fun. 

To access the Ski Slope and Toboggan side of the great Orme, go up the access road almost opposite the Grand Hotel. If you reach the Toll road you have gone too far. However, the Toll road is a lovely drive around the Orme that brings you out on Llandudno's West Shore by the Boating Lake and a fantastic spot for Summer Sunsets. This Toll road is the exact same one used by the Rally cars when they visit Llandudno.

A few miles down this road you will find a turn to the left up a hair pin bend section that takes you past Tudno church and on to the 'Summit complex' 

You don't need to walk up the Great Orme as there is a Tram to the top, one of only two of it's kind in the UK. This approach takes you to the Summit Complex, the old Randolph Turpin owned Hotel, Orme Visitor centre and childrens play area. 

The Copper Mine museum is slightly further back down the hill from the Summit. Bear in mind the Great Orme is vast so it isn't easy to walk between 'visitor' spots.


The RNLI Shannon Class Lifeboat outside it's station on Llandudno beach with the Great Orme and the Pier in the background :

While on the Great Orme, look out for the Silver Studded Blue Butterfly as you are unlikely to see it anywhere else in the World.

Worthwhile getting the Tram up and the Cable Car down.

This picture shows the Tram with the beautiful Llandudno Bay curving away in the background. 

Then of course away from the Great Orme there is the Theatre, Promenade, North Beach, the Pier, the Sunset from West Shore beach, Weatherspoons Pub set in the old Palladium theatre (it really is a special place to have a drink as it has been cleverly converted to a Pub), etc. 

Out near Llanwrst can be found 14th century Gwydir Castle. Home to the Wynn family and the most important Powerhouse in Wales during the Stuart period. Kings stayed here and you can stay in the 'Kings Room for £105 a night for 2 people inc. breakfast.

Near to the castle can be found the amazing Chapel :

Both are so well worth a visit, as is the lovely village of Llanwrst. The Cafe across the Bridge from the village is magical. 

You can also take a ride out to Llanberris where you can get a Steam Train to the top of Snowdon.

If you go to Llanberris, a highly recommended Touring Site is the  Snowden View 

Apparently the view above is Lake Padarn near to the Snowden View Touring site.  See : http://www.snowdonviewpark.co.uk/  or alternatively the excellent http://www.morris-leisure.co.uk/caravan-parks/llanberis-touring-park.htm

If that is not enough for, you try Conwy Town. 

Conwy walled Town, Castle and stunning Harbour is only a short distance away from the Tan y Bryn Campsite.


For nature lovers and children, Conwy RSPB is a real treat. It is in a stunning location right on the Conwy Estuary looking out towards Conwy Castle. 

This is Penrhyn Castle, Bangor :

Penrhyn Castle was built in the late 1800's by one of the richest men in the UK solely to entertain. Lord Penrhyn's primary residence was in London, only when entertaining, the likes of Royalty and completing business deals did the family stay at the Castle.

As you might expect, it's opulence is more in keeping with a Palace. Underfloor Heating having been installed as it was being built. It was transferred to the National Trust around 1950, complete with furnishings, when the last Lord and Lady Penrhyn passed away.  

The National Trust have added a small Railway museum and many other delights such as Woodland walks, excellent Picnic area, childrens Play Area, etc.  

It is like no other Castle I have visited before.

For more general information, this news article on the North Wales Coast Path shows lots of Wales at it's best:


Anglesey is probably one of the best kept secrets, it has wonderful tourist beaches, Rosneiger being an amazing kite surfing paradise, yet nearby you will find historic Iron Age sites that are so unspoilt it feels like you are transported back in time.

Near to Rosneiger you will find RAF Valley, a very active airfield, where some of the RAF inventory can be seen taking off or landing. 

RAF Valley was a busy airfield during WW2 and still is today. At various times it had Spitfiires, Hurricanes, Mosquitos, Defiants, Beaufighters and for a short time, Lightning P38's. 

It became the WW2 Airfield where almost all the American planes from the States first set down in the UK. In one week in 1943 over 340 US planes, mostly Big Bombers or transports touched down at the Airfield.

At the end of the war, it was this airfield that was used by the same planes to return home. The Americans liked RAF Valley because the micro climate meant that the airfiled was rarely closed down by bad weather, even when others in the region were affected. That gives you an idea of how nice the weather around there normally is.

It is still a busy airfield. In 1980 it recorded over 139,000 aircraft visits, making it the busiest airfield in the UK that year.  

Todays Mountain Rescue service was formed here in 1943 after several planes were lost on the Mountains around Snowdon and this Airfield set the rescue standards for the rest of the UK.

Helicopter Air Sea rescue Training is still based there, as is advanced Jet training. The aircraft museum at Caernarfon Airport has a lot of history about the airfields of North Wales.


The picture below is of the South Stack Lighthouse in the 1890's. 

Little is different today, the view and coastline is staggering, full of wildlife. It won't surprise you to learn it is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Look out for the very rare Chough, a bird with Orange feet and curled beak, we saw three in the Garden of the RSPB Cafe.

Almost opposite the RSPB cafe (other side of the road) can be found a remains of a Stoneage Village with the Stone Circles of the huts clearly visible.

All worth a visit are Menai Bridge, Beaumaris, Newborough, Red Wharf Bay, Amlwch, Parry's Mountain, Rhosneiger, etc.

Caernarfon is a lovely town and harbour, see the picture of Caernarvon Castle below, well worth a stop on the way back from Anglesey before your journey down the Llyn Penisula to see the seals and Abersoch (locally known as the Cheshire Riviera because of the many wealthy and famous from Cheshire with holiday homes there).


Leave Abersoch, try Pwllheli and the Llyn Peninsula before a vist to Portmeirion :

In the photo above on Portmeirion 'beach' you can just make out the boat berthed up against the jetty wall, if you go to the village please go down to the river to see it!! 

The picture below is the more traditional view of what I believe is the most unique and beautiful village in the World :



I took you all the way to Anglesey and didn't tell you about Chirk and the surroundings on the Eastern Welsh border. 

So as you leave Portmeirion, maybe head towards Beddgelert, Snowdon, Blaenau Ffestiniog, Bala, Corwen, Llangollen then Chirk?

Of course you won't be disappointed if you stop for a few days at each one of these along the way.

In the photo below can be seen Trevor Aquaduct, roughly between Chirk/Llangollen, with Canal Boats crossing the Valley, Horse drawn versions of which can be 'caught' at Llangollen. 

Alongside the Canal is a Path which is an amazing walk.

Below is a shot of Llangollen River from the Bridge in the centre of the town, with the Steam Railway Station just out of sight to the right.
