Putting the Awning up

This is a time lapse video from our trip to Dorset, showing the main awning and the annex tent being put up, it was quite windy and overcast at the time, so in case it rained we didn't hang about too long. You'll note that in the Dorset blog I mentioned having fitted the annex... Continue Reading →

Dorset holiday, still learning things!

Our next trip away was a five night stay near Swanage. We were quite close to Corfe Castle in a rather pretty area called Harman's Cross, right near the Swanage Railway Station, at the Caravan and Motorhome Club site. Traffic dominated the journey down, particularly the last part of the journey, though really it hadn't... Continue Reading →

A couple of new additions

Just a short post. In an effort to make things more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing, we've added the following: New cushions, these really help keep you comfortable when sitting on the sofas, and they tie in with the black detailing inside the caravan.

We'd come through Glastonbury a year or so before, returning from a North Devon holiday. I could remember the tor with the tower on the top and decided to come... Continue Reading →

City of Bath

The City of Bath, is an impressive place, filled with Georgian architecture with honey coloured stone from the 1800 century, the other historical interest is the Roman's, with the well preserved baths, that provides yet another reason to visit. We went this April as part of our Somerset holiday. After driving to Bath from Longleat and finding... Continue Reading →

Longleat & Safari

As our campsite was right on the border of Longleat, we'd planned ahead and booked tickets to go in early on our holiday. In fact our pitch was quite near the lake and train ride of the park, not that you could see much from our side or in fact from the train as we... Continue Reading →
