    Anyone fancy south lakes (coniston area) for valentines w/e ? Walking, drinking, talking, wooing (!).. all on the menu.

    Is anybody going anywhere ?

    Would have liked to join you, but no seats in 'van- being recovered
    so would be a bit uncomfortable!

    Hi Yoolie
    we're still going. It's Shepherds View campsite just on the cross roads as you enter Torver. £ 10 / night includes ehu.
    I've booked 3 units in (me, you, & another). Room for about 12 on here, & he's not had anyone book for this w/e.
    Ground is level, some hardstanding. Water & dumping, no toilet block. 2 pubs within 300 yards. Coniston approx 3 mls, nice walk along lakeside, bus stops nearby if knackered !


    We're going friday arrive approx 3 pm then leaving probabaly tues or weds then heading for York for a couple of days, then joining a meet with the wildcamping forum near doncaster for the following w/e. Lots of room on that one if you want to join in.

    regards
    Allen & Eileen

    ps : I'll post this on the main forum to see if I can tempt others.
    pps : We did wonder who that daft old bugger was on the bike !

    Hiya Dave & Jen
    That's a poor excuse ! Pretend you're camping again, sitting on the wet grass.
    Anyway, what about the following w/e in Doncaster (see above).
    If not, catch you both sometime, & call if you're passing.

    regards

    Allen & Eileen

    Hi all
    we were there, with Jim & Marion (& dog). The cloud never lifted for 3 days. The 'old man' is hidden in that lot behind us. That's me & Eileen on the right, and Jim & Marion (the 'yoolies') on the left.
    We went on to Keswick and overnighted (gratuit) by the suspension bridge near Braithwaite. 2 other vans parked with us. Then a couple of nights on Rowntree Park in York. Tried to book this site on web, but no pitches. We turned up on spec... no problems, a few pitches available both nights, and this was schools half term. Asked the warden about this but couldn't get a straightforward reply.
    Then onto a meet with the wildcamping forum near doncaster. That was a bit muddy, lots of pushing, pulling, and eventually a tow from a tugger to get some of the wildcampers pitched. I was ok in my twin rear wheeled merc, but still sat the rears on wooden blocks to stop it sinking in overnight.
    Looking forward to southport next.
    regards
    Allen
