The “Broadchurch Experience” at West Bay

The “Broadchurch Experience” at West Bay

Most people in the UK are probably familiar with West Bay in Dorset as the location for the ITV drama, Broadchurch. I’m fortunate enough to have visited the seaside town several times over the years and never tire of seeing the “Jurassic” cliffs towering over the beach. We left straight after work on Friday evening and arrived, via Salisbury, Blandford Forum and Dorchester, around 7pm.  We booked onto Park Dean Holidays site, mostly static caravans (with a Hi-De-Hi style entertainment…

Posh Nosh in Wiltshire and the Savernake Forest

Posh Nosh in Wiltshire and the Savernake Forest

My parents bought us a “Taster Menu Meal” at the Harrow Inn, Little Bedwyn, Wiltshire. It was a Christmas present we only just got around to using. Because we don’t like missing out on a weekend in Humberto we decided to pitch-up at Posterne (Camping in the Forest, Savernake Forest, on the outskirts of Marlborough) on Friday evening then drive into Little Bedwyn. Here you can see Humberto, tucked away, whilst we walked to the Restaurant via the railway bridge….

You Guessed it…Weston Colley..again!

You Guessed it…Weston Colley..again!

OK I agree, it does seem like we spend a lot of weekends just 15 miles down the road.  I’m sure though that Campers of all kinds just need a break, in a nice field somewhere, and it doesn’t matter where that field is. We’re guilty of taking our old Trailer Tent to “Wyke Down Campsite” several times in the past and that’s only about 3 miles from home (The fact it has a great pub on site is purely…

Hayling Island, Dog Walkers and Paddle-Boards

Hayling Island, Dog Walkers and Paddle-Boards

So, although I’ve stopped off for the afternoon at Hayling Island, on the way to/from Premier Motorhomes a couple of times, we have never overnighted there.  The local council allow you to overnight in car parks near The Inn on the Beach for £10 (£15 in Spring/Summer).  It’s not a bad deal in Winter as there are no daily parking charges, although you don’t get anything apart from a space on a gravel car park. There are no services other…

No Taxi Required – The Museum of Army Flying

No Taxi Required – The Museum of Army Flying

This Saturday saw the wedding of the daughter of some good friends of ours.  It was fairly local, in Salisbury, England, followed by a reception at The Museum of Army Flying, Middle Wallop, Hampshire. It’s been so long since I’ve been to the Museum that I’m not even sure whether I have…that’s old age for you.  Anyway, we originally thought about taxis but, after a phone call to the Museum confirmed we could overnight in the car park, all problems…

Video – A Very short look around a wet devizes Campsite

Video – A Very short look around a wet devizes Campsite

As we were leaving the Camping & Caravan site at Sells Green, Devizes, Wiltshire, England, Angeline recorded the rainy event.  Marvel at how much water pours off the roof (something you need to watch out for if you exit via the Driver door). In summary, the site is immaculate, especially the toilet block. It’s all very well “groomed” and right on the Kennet & Avon canal.  It’s great for a walk (90 minutes) or a cycle (15 minutes) into Devizes….
