    A Bank Holiday approaches and I'll have four whole days off school. So, a fantastic opportunity to go away in the 'bread van' (as Ron affectionately calls our Bailey) together with my sister and her hubby who are tuggers. We want to go somewhere within a couple of hours of Gloucester, that's got EHU, that's less than £20 a night. Preferably with a pub within walking distance! Anybody got any favourites?

    Are you in the cc or c&cc? Plenty of cl's cs's have facilities, only prob might be getting on somewhere with it being a bank hol?

    We are having the same problem but only 3 days for bank holiday weekend. :cry:

    Someone suggested a site in Oxford earlier. (y)

    I like this place http://www.binghamgrange.co.uk I haven't checked the prices for bh weekend but restaurant on site that serves alcohol. it can't be more than a couple of hours from Gloucestershire.

    Or what about going to South wales?

    CC site at Tiverton? Might be full and might be over £20 on a Bank Holiday but it has pub within staggering distance - but you have to walk along the canal tow-path - which will sober you up very quickly if you fall in! There were kingfishers flying around the last time we were there (the canal not the pub) - and they have repaired the hole in the canal too!

    Aha! We MAY be in luck. Cripps Farm near Highbridge, Somerset. Just waiting for someone to phone my sister back, but she thinks they have two pitches available. Fully serviced pitches, £18 per night! Bargain! And fishing on site to boot!

    That site looks lovely, but it's nearly £30 a night which is a little pricey. Need some pennies left for beer! May try it out is season some time though.

    Oooh! I really fancy that pub! Unfortunately it wouldn't suit my sister (far too uptight!) so may save that for when Ron and I go off on our own!

    Didn't think much of the 3 Magpies, service was away with the Fairies, the meal was crap and over priced, and I don't think the beer pipes had been cleaned for a week or so.
    Got a far better meal and pint, walking down the towpath to the first pub, bit of a walk, but, well worth it!

    Duly bookmarked. That one's a must for next time in the area.

    One sister would be right at home. Other one would be muttering with yours in the corner. :ROFLMAO:
