    I’ve got a whole spare week between hospital appointments (30/-7 /to 05/08) so we going to try and get away. It’s really needs to be within two of home ( Doncaster) near civilisation (in case of emergencies), have mobile phone reception (ditto) a clean shower block would be beneficial as I have a peg feeding tube fitted at this time and the m/h shower is a bit tight.


    I’ve always fancied Whitby and we have never been, we will be taking a car as well to get about as it will be easier than moving the m/h daily. Other areas will be looked at and were going to wait to see where the better weather is before committing, we members of both CC & CCC at this moment so good cl or cs could be a possibility, just really looking for a week’s chill out after 6 shXXy months(y)

    Take a look at this one. We've been several times and it's a really lovely site and only a couple of minutes walk to the pub.

    We use Sandi field farm caravan site on the way to Sandsend can walk into Whitby along the beach. Not the most attractive site but does have 2 shower blocks one new a couple of years ago! May be booked up as holidays have started!

    Looking for the sunny side of the street
    Hi Phil:hi:
    Glad you've plans to get away. We stayed at Serenity a year or two ago & really liked it, v laid back.....I was chasing the owner for about 3 days to pay him:LOL: & right in the village but the hill down to the bay is the steepest I've ever seen....nice though once you're down. Have a few places quite close by if you feel up to exploring(y)

    A friend & myself are booked into Broadings in Sept when Les is on his Euro trip & I've heard good things about it too. can't wait:D

    Edit:
    Serentity also had a camping kitchen & info room all set up for all to use.

    Love Ferry Meadows!

    Nene Valley railway and Scarewell Farm well worth a visit. Stamford is lovely too.

    Not sure if there's anything on at the shows round this weekend, but handily placed for that too.

    Have a great time
