For our October 2011 half-term holiday, Cary and I decided to return to a favourite area of ours – the Ironbridge Gorge in Shropshire. I’m originally a Shropshire lad and grew up near the Ironbridge Gorge; although I have been exiled in Merseyside for many a long year! Although both of my parents are dead, […]
A caravan holiday is a fantastic way to explore the countryside whilst visiting remote areas and having a great adventure. With time and money becoming more precious, a long weekend holiday in a caravan may be the perfect way to relax.
Our members have been on some great caravan holidays and have shared their holiday journals with us. If you’d like to share your own caravan journals, please get in touch as we’d love to hear from you!
Read all about Tim’s summer caravan holiday in Scarborough in his caravan journal below. We were late booking our 2012 Whit Week caravanning break, but managed to secure a pitch at Scarborough Camping and Caravanning Club site from the evening of the Bank Holiday Monday – 4 June. We took the A570 near our home […]
We travelled up to Cumbria on Monday 13 February with our caravan to stay at Kiln Hill Barn, a Caravan Club CL near the village of Bassenthwaite. We are frequent visitors to the Keswick area which we love. When caravanning in the area we usually stay at the Camping and Caravanning Club’s Keswick site but […]
Weather, that’s what I want to talk about first, more importantly, ‘sun’ as opposed to ‘rain’. You see, in 2009 we went north for a three-week tour around the Scottish Highlands. You can read about it here. Now we enjoyed that holiday quite a lot but there was a big BUT, and that was the […]
Set adjacent to an ancient wood of special scientific interest and the pretty River Wharfe, the beautiful little Strid Wood site (which has 57 hard standing pitches) positively teems with wildlife. The site entrance is quite narrow which may explain the request for no arrivals before 1 pm and all departures by 11 am. We […]
We stayed at the Caravan Club’s new Teesdale Barnard Castle site during its first week of opening. The site was very easy to find as the directions were given on the CC website (I was going to update my Sat Nav POI but I did not have the time). The directions advise you to take […]
When the CC set up Rowntree Park they obviously thought location, location, location. It is just outside of the centre of York, right on the banks of the River Ouse. With some trepidation, we followed the route that is described on the club’s website almost to the centre of York from the A19 and the […]
We stayed at River Breamish CC over the bank holiday weekend at the end of May. River Breamish CC lies just north of Powburn and just off the A697. The road to Inhope Spout. Arriving there on the Thursday for an early start, we found that lots of other people had the same idea, as […]
Caravan Holiday in Yellowcraig, Berwick We have just had the pleasure of staying at the excellent Yellowcraig Caravan Club site, situated on the edge of the small but beautiful village of Dirleton. Dirleton is approximately 20 miles east of Edinburgh on the A198 and a couple of miles west of North Berwick. Although only a […]
Late on the morning of Sunday 1 April 2012, we left our home in St Helens for our Easter break to Milarrochy Bay Camping and Caravan Club site on the eastern shores of Loch Lomond. This was a trip down memory lane, as we had last visited this site on our first family camping holiday […]
Are you interested in a caravan holiday in Anglesley? Tim Irwin’s has kindly documented his holiday in Anglesley to share with us in this holiday journal. We spent 10 nights at Cae Mawr Caravan Club site during the Easter holidays, 2010. We left St Helens on the morning of Sunday 28 March and took the […]
Caravan Holiday in Brittany Part 1 We left home at 10.30am on 23 July to travel to Folkestone for our first time through the Tunnel, courtesy of Tesco vouchers. The journey to Folkestone was a horrendous 7+ hours for the 278 mile trip. Unfortunately the traffic on the M25, travelling clockwise, was horrendous with frequent […]
Caravan Holiday in Croatia & Slovenia Part 1 We left home soon after lunch on Saturday 24 July and had a good journey down to Dover via M6, M6 toll, M40, M25 anti-clockwise and M20. We arrived at Dover Services at approximately 20.00 hrs and overnighted in the coach park there as we’d forgotten to […]
