Staycation


Summer Holidays and in-car arguements 2

Shortly before we went on our little “road trip” camping we downloaded a few child friendly films on to the tablet devices. This meant that when we got stuck in traffic chaos on the M5 on the way we had a secret weapon, and also for wet days in the tent. British holidays or staycations can be a bit of a downer for the lads if it’s all wet outside. One evening we had an in-tent movie night, watching Turbo, Rio 2 and The Lego Movie whilst drinking hot chocolate in camping mugs and ignoring the damp stuff falling from the sky.

We are on the side of a steep hill but the camping areas have been levelled off. This place has a dog friendly bar restaurant, showers and all the basics plus a swimming pool with a sauna. It even has its own petrol station and Spar shop.
