    Its my long weekend off, so were going away but need a little inspiration please, I thought about going to the Lincoln show, but I need solitude to unwind + good TV to watch the GP, trees with leaves falling would be nice, lots of squirrels/rabbits etc.

    No too many people around , (free wine would be a bonus but not essential:Cool:) and around 2 hours drive from Doncaster max


    Any ideas ?:Confused:

    OK 4 then. And no free wine, I remember now, I said to 'er indoors, "We're not coming back here again, no free wine".

    But it did fit the rest of your requirements :Smile:

    Hope/Bamford/Castleton has a lot going for it ( not sure about TV ). Castleton has a CC site and there must be a shed load of small sites as well.

    Sounds like you need a grave yard, no free wine but plenty of free spirits

    Been to ferry Meadows, several times, its split in two, the left hand side is for the OAP's and the right for the roudies with Kids:Rofl1:

    plenty of nice walks to be had, and the park near by is lovely, it as a quiet cafe, and you can take some bread and feed the ducks, theres also plenty of cycle rides too.

    We did eat there. Not brilliant. Typical microwave fodder. But the views were excellent.
