    At Last both of my daughters will be away for Christmas-yippee we can now do something we have wanted to do for years, get away in the van for Christmas. Any ideas, Christmas rallies? York CC site,no doubt is probably already booked,but I would prefer a rally type meet especially as we have 3 Shi Tzus with us.

    We're thinking about having a Christmas meet at our place
    Nestled in Ashdown Forest
    We're cooking up a three bird roast cooked slowly overnight in the bottom oven in the Aga served with all the trimmings. Home grown veggies and home made gravy
    Home cooked honey roast ham, served with home made, home grown coleslaw and potato wedges. Followed by home made Margarita ice cream
    Tempting?

    We found ourselves in a similar situation last Christmas & also wanted a proper play in our new van.

    Following a suggestion from someone on here, we went to The Masons Arms, just outside Yeovil. Good food & beer brewed on the premises. Very dog friendly - landlady is involved in dog rescue & re-training.

    No Christmas Day lunch, which we actually viewed as a plus point.

    We ought to do something different this year, but it's very tempting to go back. One word of warning - the entrance is tight; if cars are badly parked it's a struggle even with our 6.4 x 2.05m PVC. The track down to the campsite is very steep - if it snows or freezes you are probably there until the thaw. There are worse places to be stuck!

    The other plus point for us was that we then went on to visit family in the area over the weekend that followed Christmas.

    Usually run down the west country to stop on my brothers driveway :)

    Last year I only "popped in" for 3 days and stayed 3 weeks (y)

    Best site in Dorset, free EHU, free water, no grey dump problems and the café was open 24/7 - winner ::bigsmile::clap::roflmto:
