FESTIVAL No6 2018

FESTIVAL No6 2018
6th - 9th September

The fantastic Festival No6 is returning for it's 7th year running, with more amazing artists joining the line up.

Music

Some of the artists that will be headlining the festival this year are:

THE THE

Returning after a 15 year hiatus, this is the bands only UK confirmed date outside of London!  They are returning with new material, The Record Store Day single 'We Can't Stop What's Coming'.

FRANZ FERDINAND


The fantastic Franz Ferdinand are back not only with a new line up, but with new ideas and vigorous sonic experimentation!  Always Ascending is intended to hit you in the heart before the head.  They wanted this record to sound like nothing you've heard before, especially from Franz Ferdinand.

FRIENDLY FIRES


An Indie Rock band, whose earlier work has appeared on TV, are coming back after a short break.  The music they are making now is back to the standard of their past music and they are looking forward to writing a new chapter in their lives.

THE CHARLATONS


Another Indie Rock band who's 13 Albums have all charted in the UK's Top 40 Albums Chart, with 3 making it to number 1!  After their second album failed to impress, they decided that each album or single would be what represented them at that particular time, which leads them to their 13th Album, which is possibly their most ambitious to date!



As well as music, there will be everything from fancy food to all sorts of different events going on across the weekend!

GLOBAL STREET FOOD VILLAGE 

The food offered at Festival No6 reflects the stunning setting and general surrealist nature of the festival.  Over 40 of the nations finest street food operators will be coming together to create a diverse mix of cuisine for a 'nerve-ending banquet of first class food to go'.  Each vendor will be housed in their own wooden chalet in keeping with the surreal village surroundings.

WELSH PRODUCE MARKET

Each year an independent food market that specialises in local and organic produce can be found on the village green.

EVENTS

As well as eating all the wonderful delights on offer and listening to all the amazing musical acts, there is still plenty of other amazing events to be discovered over the weekend that will keep every one entertained!  From a Trail Woodland Run to Mermaid Yoga.  From Handstand mastery to Paddle boarding sessions. From the Saturday Night Spectacle to Wood fired Hot Tub sessions.  There is literally something there for everyone!

ARTS


Yes that's right, the legendary Suggs will be appearing for the first time at this year's festival!  He will be performing his new one man show 'Suggs: What a King Cnut - A Life In The Realm of Madness'.  Things have gone a bit surreal since the madness frontman was a 12 year old boy growing up on the streets of London.
Over the weekend they will be showing 'Suggs - My Life Story', the new Julien Temple film based on Sugg's quest to find meaning to his life after turning 50, leaving him wondering who he really is.  This will be followed by a question and answer session with the man himself!

These are just some of the amazing artists and acts that will be performing at this year's festival.  For a full list of artists and entertainment visit their website www.festivalnumber6.com

Holiday Home Ownership

Holiday Home Ownership at Garreg Goch


Owning a holiday home isn't just about finding the right caravan, it's about finding the perfect place you want to keep going back to.  A place where you can sit and relax and forget about the struggles of every day life.  A place where you can pick up a good book and fall into the world of fantasy or science fiction.  A place where you can enjoy day trips out with friends and family.

Yes, finding the right caravan for you is important, but for us, the most important thing for you is making sure that you find the right place to make those all important memories!

Here at Garreg Goch we are a small family friendly, pet friendly park.   We have a total of 64 static caravans on site with 13 touring pitches.  We have an outside play park for children, a new amenity block for the tourers (which is being built this winter!) a launderette with washing machines, tumble dryers and an Iron; and a small shop with all your cupboard essentials within the Reception.

We have the Welsh hills and mountains as a back drop and we are just a 10 minute walk to the golden shores of Black Rock Sands beach.  There is nothing more relaxing than waking up to the sounds of the sea and the birds singing! Apart from waking up in your very own holiday home here at Garreg Goch of course.



















We are very lucky to be surrounded by such wonderful countryside and to be close to the beautiful National Park that is Snowdonia.  Garreg Goch is the perfect base to go out and explore from, with lots of activities and places to visit within an hours drive from the park.  There's a little bit of something for everyone.

For those of you who love to walk, there are some amazing walks , from conquering Snowdonia itself, to the making a day out of walking up Moel Y Gest, a 263m just to the west of Porthmadog.  If walking is not for you then why not head on down to Surf Snowdonia, the world's first commercial artifical surfing lake in the Conwy Valley.  Or why not head to Blaneau Ffestiniog where you can have a go on Europe's longest and fastest zip line over the slate covered hills; or discovered the hidden caverns via zip lines, rope bridges and tunnels; or have a go at Bounce Below, where you can jump, slide, bounce and roll from net to net in a cavern the size of a cathedral! 


If walking and zip lining aren't for you, then why not take a ride on the Ffestiniog Railway or the Welsh Highland Railway.  Sit back and relax as you travel through the stunning National Park.  If walking up Snowdonia isn't for you, there's also the train that takes you up to the summit (although you need a good day weather wise for this














Not forgetting the historical towns of Cearnarfon, Harlech, Bangor, Barmouth, Abersoch; the list is endless.  You are sure to find something for all the family.





You may just want to do something simple like pick up a good book, put your feet up and spend the day lost in fantasy or science fiction, all from the comfort of your very own holiday home!








I think you'll agree that here at Garreg Goch there is just about something for everyone!


Owning a holiday home isn't just about choosing the right caravan.  It's about choosing a place where you are going to be happy; somewhere you enjoy going to unwind and relax after a busy week.  Somewhere you want to keep going back to and making memories.  These are the important things, and these are why Garreg Goch is the is the perfect place for you!  Don't believe me?  Then why not come down and see for yourself!  

We look forward to seeing you :) 

Walking Holidays in Snowdonia

Mountain Walks in Snowdonia

The National Park of Snowdonia has something to offer everyone; but one thing it has plenty of, is thespectacular walks through the hills and mountains that make up this beautiful National Park.
As well as Mount Snowdon, there are plenty of other, smaller mountains and hills that take you through meandering hillsides and glacial landscapes sculpted by the last Ice Age.


If you're looking for a walk that is a little off the beaten track and not as popular as Snowdon, then the walk up Moel Hebog from Beddgelert  is the perfect walk for you.


             This is a circular route with varying terrain, so make sure you are wearing the correct footwear!  On a clear day you can see the outline of the Welsh coastline and across to Snowdon.  If lucky, you may get to see some of the amazing bird life that inhabits this area, from Buzzards and Red Kites to the occasional Perigrine Falcon!


This walk is approximately 7.5 miles with an ascent of 905m.  This walk will take you around 5 and a half hours, so make sure you go well prepared.  Always check the weather before you set off as this will determine whether you go or stay at home.  Always plan your route before you leave as this will save you time whilst you are out walking.  Make sure you are aware of the area where you start from.  


Or why not try the walk to Y Garn 



Y Garn sits at the northern end of Snowdonia's proper mountain range The Glyders.  This walk takes you to the shores of Llyn Idwal which sits in the glacial platform of Cwm Idwal, then up to Y Garn.  This walk really does give you a tour as you also take in the Devil's Kitchen path on your way back to your starting point.

This walk to Y Garn is approximately 4.5 miles and covers an ascent of 655m.  This walk will take you around 4 and a half hours to complete.  Again, always check the weather forecast before you set off, as well as planning your route, and always make sure you are wearing the correct clothing! And more importantly, always make sure you let someone know where you are going!


These are just two of the many other walks that can be done in the beautiful National Park of Snowdonia, all of which are just a short drive from us here at Garreg Goch, making us the ideal base for your walking holiday!

We have 13 hard standing touring pitches, all of which come with 16amp electric hook up, water and grey water drainage.  We also have 14 static caravans available to hire, ranging from Pet Friendly through to Platinum standard.  All come with two or three bedrooms, bathroom with shower,sink and toilet, kitchen with oven and hob, tv with freesat and a dvd player.  All the comforts for that home away from home feeling.

Why not have a look at our website www.garreggochpark.co.uk where you can book your holiday online, or call our office on 01766 512210 where we will be happy to book you in over the phone.

We are now taking bookings for 2018 so why not check us out and give us a call, and get your accommodation booked for your next walking holiday in Snowdonia!
