Trip to Lancashire and Yorkshire

Hi everybody. Just back fro a fortnight in the motorhome.!st Site - Edisford Bridge at Clitheroe. A really good site. Very efficeient, fantastic toilets, good pitches. Good location for walking, cycling and walking into Clitheroe. Walked up Pendle and many other walks. Would recommend.2nd Site Silsden near Keighley -- inspite of rain and gales we walked and saw the sites. Handy for Worth Valley Railway, Bolton Abbey etc.3rd site Buckden. What a pity, the site is brilliantly located but would give it 3 out of 10. Why? On UK Campsite it says it has all the facilities. Problem is that it is split in two. The bottom half has the showers, the washing up facilities. The top half which is where motrorhomes is 250 yards away up a steep hill. Also the pitches are not good, too easy to get stuck. Buckden is pretty but it is "shut". Pub shut, tearoom shut, shop hardly ever open at the whim of the owner, So will not be back.4th site Hawes . What a contrast. Brilliant facilities and cheaper than The caravan and Motorhome Club site in the village. So strongly recommend.

Getting ready for France

I was sitting down after polishing the van to with inch of its life. Guess what , it rained so all my work was in vain . It got me thinking that all the work in getting ready for our hols(France) is totally knackering. I am not quite there in the retired brigade. Still holding down job. Looking quite envesly at the lucky people to be retired. Not wishing my life away but thinking it must be nice to organise a long trip away not just the two weeks annual leave I get. I was wondering is there a book on trips to France taking in regions and there high lights. There so many out there for longer trips away but not so much for two week trips. I know it is personal to the individual but would give a good starting point. Looking forward to some ideas This my first blog so be gentle with the ramblings of my mind. Just finished my tea and biscuits and getting back to polishing the van again.

Hello from a Newbie/cher

Hi everyone, thanks for the warm welcome!! Looking forward to sharing info and photos and some tales of people and places experienced when our wheels are turning and we go motoring in our camper. Unfortunately, I had to sell my 32ft 7.5 ton RV but my partner has a lovely Adria and we have enjoyed some lovely trips through France/Germany and of course good old UK.
