    we have found ourselves with a long weekend we hadnt expected so want to make the most of it.
    we are happy to travel upto 150 miles hubby likes to fish i like nice pub lunch we both like a short walk or nearby bus stop so we can have a look around dont mind seaside or towns , maybe theres a festival or some sort of event you could recomend just want to get away.forgot to mention we have a dog.
    all sugestions welcome thanks .

    North Norfolk railway Beer Festival at Sheringham 18-20 July, with rides on Steam Trains in between- quite a few camp sites on the rail or coastal bus link to Sheringham. Always the CC or C&CC at West Runton.


    Cheers

    Looking for the sunny side of the street
    I can maybe tick some boxes for you but imagine it is about at your max distance (thinking when we were doing it t'other way round).

    I have mentioned it on another thread but the c&cc site at conkers in the national forest, Leics/Derbys border.

    Fishing and eating is within walking distance at shortheathwater.co.uk. There's also a new youth hostel next door to the site that's licensed. Dog walking is brill, miles and miles of trails.

    Within a few miles you have Calke Abbey, National Arboretum, places like Melbourne. Not sure how easy these are if relying on public transport.

    Cant help with the events side but all these places do have stuff running from time to time.
