    The big question is did you enjoy it, and were the locals friendly

    people were very friendly, loved it, the people in the fish pond inn, just up the road from camp site at delmere forest made us feel very welcome and thier food was exceptional for the price, the beer wasnt bad either.we also visited jodderal bank and found a small village called sweatenham with a very interesting pub of the same name, gost stories,walking,lavender garden and large car park with outside facilities and good food well above pub standard resonabl priced.
