I am going to be attending Paul’s 3 day foundation and chairmaking course from 15-28 September and wondered if anyone wants to share accommodation costs. A static caravan (sleeps 6, but is probably best for 2 or 3 for privacy) is about £600 for the fortnight. I have been looking at accommodation options, and need to consider my budget. Self-catering is probably best for me, and this would be a good way to meet other woodworkers.
Other options would be a cottage (£700ish). If no one wants to share, I’ll bite the bullet and go camping!

The B&B I stayed at when I did the 9 day course has been sold now, unfortunately.
If you’re ok to buddy up and share a cottage, email the school and see if they can send an email out to other people going to the course to see if anyone’s interested in sharing.
Enjoy the course! You’ll have a great time at the castle.

thanks for the advice; I’ll ask Resi if she would make enquiries. I am very much looking forward to it 🙂

If you’re looking for accommodation for just 3-4 nights while on the course I recommend you try the Abbeyfield Hotel. It’s just a couple of minutes drive from the castle and pretty inexpensive at, from memory, around £45 per night for B&B. Evening food is excellent, but you could find a local chippy or pizza place in Bangor for cheaper evening meals.
I’ve stayed there myself on a few occasions and the rooms are clean and food good. There may be a discount too if you mention the woodworking school.
Hope this helps

if it were only 3-4 nights, that would be great! 🙂 Sadly, it’s 13, and at that price, on top of the course price, it makes it a little too expensive for me 🙁 but thanks for the advice. I’m trying a few options, spareroom.co.uk and camping being a few of them. What I SHOULD have done was to have put the boat into Port Penhryn for the duration, but I found rot in the cabin roof and sides and so she is now in Fiddler’s Ferry (up the Mersey – theres a song in there, I can just feel it :)) and so laid up while I find the time to do the repair) for the duration.
Thanks for your help.
