    PRICES - http://www.charityfarm.co.uk/caravantarifs.htm


    is suzy cooking? I would imagine so, otherwise I'm gonna be very hungry :Laughing: (If other funsters are there I reckon the usual get-together or bbq is quite likely :thumb:)

    will you be wearing the silly mask again? What mask - I always look like this :BigGrin:

    do i book with the site direct? Yes indeed :thumb:

    will there be entertainment? Yes, he's called Paul...
    will we be using our own entertainer? See above :Wink:

    Yippee!!!!

    We will come along. I shall ring in the morning and book 3 nights 2nd, 3rd and 4th. I assume that is the right dates?
    Let us know if it is any different. We will book hook-up as well. Any chance we could be all close to each other?

    PS. We will bring Big Bertha awning, complete with a nice little heater, lol

    Hi you two :Smile:

    Yes we will be there 2nd, 3rd and 4th.

    Hopefully the heater will be needed a little less that at New Year :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Nice idea Bryan... was tempted until I read Dog £3.00 per night !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    £16 for 2 adults, 2 children and a car...... there's just me and the dog !!!!!

    £ 19 per night .......another blood with a y on UK rip off

    no showers for 1 adult and 2 kids that should qualify for a 75% reduction ....

    then I can afford the absolute greedy rip off of £3 A NIGHT for the dog....

    who doesn't take showers (except at home:Wink:) and doesn't use the crapper (thanks to me + poop scoop)... in fact doesn't use anything on the site !!!

    Just at the minute I dont particularley care about charges for dogs on camp sites, however.

    I have never yet managed to find a camp site manager or employee who can explain to me just what the dog or me get for his/her/my money.

    Everything is provided by the dog owner. As for dog walks they are a joke, its normally a bit of redundant land at the side of the site which nobody has any use for anyway.

    They are normally dirty unkempt and full of litter dropped by campers and then blown into the dog walk, out of site out of mind.

    Its a blatant rip off.

    Sorry wasn't trying to highjack the post.

    Not Bruno John , they have specially trained Jockeys for him:Rofl1:


    In seriousness £3 pn for a dog is a lot. But as said there is a purpose built dog walking area making it a pleasure to take your dog (there words not mine) so therefore at least they have put some effort in and not just charging because you have one. :thumb:

    Thank you for trying :Rofl1:


    Can we now stay on topic? :thumb:

    If you want to discuss campsite charges that you consider unfair please, by all means start a thread about it. This thread is to discuss the easter getaway we have planned :BigGrin:

    This campsite charges £3 for a dog - if you don't want to pay that then perhaps this venue is not for you. :Smile:

    Booked

    Hi Bryan & Suzy,
    Booked in for the 3 nights, 2nd, 3rd and 4th. We shall be there around mid-day. We will bring the big awning and Cadac to give you two a break from the crowds. Anyone can use it as a gathering place whenever they want. As you say, you are there for the resting so just let the rest of us do our bits, with advise and guidance of course, lol.
    Regards
    Graham & Jean
