    Hello all,

    We are away this Easter at Cottington Lakes
    Sandwich Road
    Sholden
    Deal
    Kent CT14 0AR

    They have very good Fishing Lakes, fishing tackle shop, cafe, basic showers.

    The price is £10.00 or £12.00 with electric

    It is only a small site not suitable for children or loud music,
    but the plus side is its walkable/cyclable to Deal which is a seaside town.

    So far the following people will be going

    Patsy4 Neil and Pat
    Diabalo Dane and Hazel
    Red Sonja Sonja and Kevin

    We would love other funsters to join us there is another 2 electric plots available, and we could add a further few non electric plots as well.

    If interested contact me by pm or this thread.

    Regards Pat and Neil

    Hello all


    We still have one space available for Easter Weekend at Deal. I will have to let the plot go if no one else is interested. Last day to book Monday 6th April 2009.

    The site has great fishing lakes, its only a small site, and near the seaside town of Deal in Kent.


    Kind regards

    Pat and Neil

    Hope you have a good weekend - we're at Cottington at the moment and it's dull and misty. Beware the ehu - reduced to less than 6 amp since our last visit.

    You don't have to fish, just enjoy the surrondings and company.:Rofl1:

    Looking forward to meeting you Tintin.

    Will you be fishing, there is a fishing tackle shop on site and I think they sell fishing licenses too.

    There are a couple of us who are not fishing and are there to chill.

    Regards Pat

    Hi Tintin

    Looking forward to seeing you there. Even if it rains I'm sure we will be fine. We will put up the Safari room and squeeze everyone in.

    Not sure you will get a fishing licence from the tackle shop, you can get them on line from the Enviroment agency.

    The site isn't small, almost 60 pitches and has no restrictions on children ..In fact it's advertised on one review as having fishing for youngsters .. so why not just say it's an adult only meet ?

    Or am I looking at the wrong site ?

    Hi Jim

    Not a adults only meet as we are going :Wink:

    I looked at a review on Campsite UK and it said "Not suitable for Children" Not sure what they mean by that though, maybe its because they have no play equipment there.
    I have never been before and dont have any problem with children going and I'm sure the others havent either. Are you thinking of joining us, would be nice to see you again.

    Hi Jim

    Sorry I just saw your posts.

    It was me that said it wasnt suitable for children. Because firstly a review from Jan on UK campsite saying it was not suitable for children.


    I have been to the site, and there is nothing for children, it also said no ball games or children cycling, that was about 18 months. Then they only had 26 plots. They have a nice small CL to one side which is a lovely spot, but when we were there was a bit boggy, also a few trucks passing along it from a gravel pit or something, a little noisy and dusty then.

    When I was there I got the impression that children werent invited. I am not anti children, because I would have loved to have taken my small grandson with me. The link you sent me to the site is the correct one, but looks like it has just been updated.

    Its a shame you couldnt have joined us.

    Regards Pat
