    We will be having a mini meet from the 1st till the 3rd of April or longer if you wish, at The White Horse PH Tattingstone, Suffolk.
    This site is just a couple of hundred metres from " Alton Water " a vast man-made lake, created in the 1970s and 80s to supply drinking water to the people of South Suffolk.

    http://whitehorsetattingstone.co.uk/camping.html

    http://www.anglianwater.co.uk/leisure/what-to-see/water-parks/alton/

    You can Cycle right round the lake,:BigGrin: watch the yatchs sailing, see all the wildlife or just go for a walk.


    The pub serves food and the site takes a maximum of 18 vans (allowing for the 6m gap thinghy) with only 5 Electric hook ups water and a toilet block with washbasins.:BigGrin: The cost is £7 a night or £9 with electric.

    So anyone wanting to join us, post on this thread.

    Looks like a great place for a meet.

    Unfortunately we are going to a Hippy Meet, and have already bought some of the outfits.

    Have fun

    Pat

    Looks good to us, please put us down for this one, we are thinking of coming straight to the campsite from the Newark Show which happens to be the weekend before, saves us setting up twice, be nice to be on a different site too.

    Can you tell us if the access roads to it and also access into the camping area is OK for us to bring the fifth wheel?

    Put us down for electric - thanks.

    Nigel and Pamala

    Hi Nigel and Pamala,
    That would be great :Smile: I will phone the pub for you though I think the access to that is OK, but I will check. Bob used to take the arctic on roads nearby so that should be OK. Please PM us with the dimensions we are talking about. Should be fine as not many brewers use drays anymore and the pub gets it's beer somehow :BigGrin:

    Jane and Bob :Smile:

    Hi this is quite a nice little site we have stayed there a few times in the past as we have friends that used to live across the road from the pub.

    Just been told that " Generators " can be used. Also that weekend is Mothers Day. :thumb: So if you wish to bring your Mother :Smile: more than welcome. Also anyone that can stay on the Sunday night, its " Buskers Night " so should be a great weekend. :thumb: We will be going there from Newark Show and staying until the 4th anyone wishing to do the same just let us know. :BigGrin: They are very trusting and agreed that people can pay when they arrive. :thumb: Bob and Jane.
