Tuesday 14th November 2017:
Currently life is getting in the way quite a lot and so we find ourselves snatching Humberto-time as and when we can, more often than not mid-week and at short notice. Bear with us and we should be more settled and, me, more diligent with my Blogging than at present. Anyway, here’s a quick update from last month.
Since we found ourselves with a couple of days free, mid-week, we decided to make the most of it and head north to the Cotswolds. The Caravan & Motorhome Club site at Moreton-in-Marsh had a space available so we booked it up and headed north.
The journey from Hampshire is incredibly straightforward for us, it basically involves about 3 junctions, join the A303 near our house, turn onto the A34 and then follow the A44 to the Campsite. It looked simple and, for once…it was simple.
The C&M club site was immaculate as usual, the toilet block puts every other campsite to shame, spotless and warm. Hats off to the staff there.
My favourite aspect of the site however is its proximity to Moreton-in-Marsh itself. No more than a 10 minute stroll gets you into the heart of the village and a selection of nice cafes, pubs and restaurants.
There’s a path through (very muddy in November) fields all the way to Batsford Arboretum. We took advantage of this, put on our boots and trampled through the mud. It reminded me of a mini-Stourbridge but we’d missed “peak Autumn” by a couple of weeks. Despite some beautiful views most of the Autumn foliage was on the ground.
In the evening we walked into town and, on the recommendation of a local, we had an evening meal in the White Hart “Snug” bar. I have to say it was a 10/10 traditional meal (Steak & Kidney pud, with suet pastry to die for) washed down with a few local beers.
It made for a lovely short break with the minimum of hassle. We’ll definitely use it again for the same reasons I think.
Lee @ Go Humberto!
