    We are up at Tan Hill Inn, 1730 feet above sea level , highest pub in Britain on the lovely Yorkshire Dales. I was the highest woman drinking a lovely Theakstons ( 0r anything in fact ) in Britain about 9 pm:Rofl1:
    Seeing as though there was only Ralph Me and another couple of blokes in the bar before we left.
    Its 10 to 10 in the evening and blowing a gale and chucking it down. We've been in the pub and had a meal , it was very quiet , the quietest we've known it in fact. Coal fire burning and Buster our dog, fast asleep in front of it.
    We are now back in the motorhome, Webasto keeping us toasty warm , catching up on emails etc .
    The satellite wouldn't stand a chance up on the roof of the motorhome haha.
    So its 50 shades and MHF from 10 pm !!

    Dont you just love your motorhome??

    Now that sounds like a good evening, the van could be rocking some more when you finish 50 Shades.:Blush::Smile:

    1732ft above sea level, don't forget the 2ft itrs very important:Laughing:

    We also love it up there, last time we had a meal it was poor, although it was about 6 years ago.

    Lovely spot, great views.

    Paul.

    Phew what a night:Eeek:
    The motorhome looked like its been steam cleaned outside this morning. The wind so strong with the rain , almost took the graphics off :Rofl1:
    There were no black streaky marks on the motorhome or dead bugs this morning . I wouldn't say I was rocked to sleep , but Ralph was .
    Kept me awake for hours , though we didnt wake up until 10 am . That was with a sheep scratching its bum on the bumper , rocking the van which made Buster bark. :Laughing:
    We woke up to warm sunshine too , so we had a full monty outside on the cadac. What a difference a day makes eh?

    We have an unlocked 3 mifi thing that enables us to get a connection in most places , Grommet , you would love Tan Hill Inn http://www.panoramio.com/photo/43624847.

    £2 per person camping. Elsan and water . Food is not a patch on what it has been in the past , so much so that we would not recommend it for eating anymore.
    But the surrounding scenery , walks , ale and pub atmosphere is fantastic .

    Well if your not expecting much Ivy , just scampi and oven chips or soup and roll chicken and chips or gammon and chips . You wouldnt be dissapointed.
    But it used to do proper chips and things like home made steak and ale pie , Lovely home made sausages with buttery mash , Roasts and steaks etc.
    Pub grub , but nice pub grub.
    I dont think they have a chef there anymore , or they didnt last night. I do know Tracey, the swearing landlady :Eek!:, was away at her sons wedding at their other place. So it could just be a glitch. Though trip advisor has slated the food now too.

    Its still for sale at offers around 1.2 million if anyone wants to turn it around .......
