    hi guys,

    Hoping our new motorhome arrives soon and want to get away Spring bank holiday, I know it's a bit late but until get a delivery date don't want to book a site.
    Anyone got any suggestions where we can go in the Midlands so we can try it out, that may have room but would allow a cancellation if the motorhome doesn't arrive?

    Thanks
    Andy

    If you're not a member already join the CCC and then you can go to a rally or THS as no need to book so no cancellation necessary.

    You could go on Lyndon Top, it's at Rutland waters, think there is a ccc rally, but if your not a member, you can still book on, plenty of room

    You know what - I'd truck on down to Lyndon Top at Rutland.
    It's the complete opposite of a fully featured site, it's basically a field (well lots of them) with no 'facilities' except water & dumping, on the banks of Rutland Water.
    Plenty of space, no booking necessary, stay as long or as short as you like.
    £7 a night and no rules about which way to face.
    You'll learn a lot about your van, and there's as much or as little as you might vwant to do on a bank holiday break.
    Lyndon Top is a favourite with funsters for good reason.
    My two-penneth.

    Regards Steve.

    ...and it's why - after good advice from the sage burghers of the forum - I went there in my first ever outing in my new MH a year ago.
    Beautiful location, plenty to do, enforced reliance on my MH's facilities... but close enough to runaway home if it all went pear shaped (it didn't)
    ;)

    Regards Steve

    @laird of Dunstan
    Thought you had a shakedown run to Vanbitz to get toys fitted.
    Are you at that place at Katesbridge?
    If so, how do you like it - convenience, price etc?

    Edit:
    Perhaps PM me rather than go completely off topic on Andrew's "Where to go" thread.
    :whistle:



    Regards Steve

    Yes I'm at Kate's bridge ,the security is good and the price reasonable ,from memory it was 280.00/for the year.
    I've had the MH out twice once to van bitz and then to the show at Peterborough, yet to go to a site and try it out properly .
    Was at langtoft today fixing the MIL,s car

    Thanks for your advice, may have a run to Rutland, would be good to be at a rally as there would be plenty of others there to ask advice and be shown the ropes.
    Cheers.
