    Would be lovely to see you both up here Paul! Not sure if the Alpacas are ready for Tara yet though :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
    Only joking - they're in a separate field! :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    We'll have to visit Glossop some time but may be just a fleeting visit rather than stopping. What are the site rates these days? Any discounts? :Smile:

    Don't know what the site rates are Graham - we always get a long stay discount! :Smile: Best to ring and ask him! :winky: Tell him you're friends of ours and he'll probably charge you double :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Unless he's dropped them significantly from last year, Marie, I don't think we'll be stopping there :Smile: Better value at that CS at Broadbottom or even ones round Buxton:Smile:

    >> Anyone coming to Windy Harbour in Glossop this summer???

    Is this some Rights of Passage question ?

    Like walking on fire ?
    Slaying The Dragon ?
    Re-taking The Holy Land ?

    And "summer", care to explain "summer".

    We are staying at Crowden Campsite this weekend.
    I've looked on a map and Windy Harbour looks like a pub/hotel? Do they take motorhomes?


    Steve


    EDIT: Just found it on the internet, they don't make it easy having a web site called a different name to the hotel...
    Might give it a go next time, looks good.

    Hi Steve - Windy Harbour has a few advantages over Crowden in that it's possible to walk to Padfield (pub), Hadfield (shops and railway station) and Glossop (even more shops and railway station). :Smile: Have they got electricity at Crowden now? They didn't last time we looked!
    It's Glossop Carnival this weekend in Manor Park. great for kids!:thumb:
