    Hi you guys, new on hear.
    I have been looking through this kind of site for a couple of years now and thought how good they are for various reasons.
    My wife and I have a small Motorhome that is our pride and joy, she is a Talbot Express Compass 304 24 yrs old and is in great condition.
    We usually go to Spain or France for our hols but have decided to tour the UK this year for a change, so I am hoping you all can give us a few ideas on places, sites etc to visit.
    That's all I can say for now, so to cap it all I am hoping I can join in with you all and swap ideas and thoughts.
    Thank you
    Camperdave

    Welcome Dave and Mrs 'Dave' !
    This is a great site... Consider a tenner for membership.... Best dough you'll spend I promise you.
    How about a trip to the Emerald Isle, free pitch with EHU at my place....... Google 'Donegal' ... Homebase 10 mile south of Letterkenny town.... but be in Blighty a lot.

    Hello :hi: There are so many places for you to visit in the UK. Wales, we loved North Wales when we lived up north. The Lake district, loved it there too. But now we love it down here in Kent, lots to see here. I could go on for hours! Enjoy wherever you get to.

    Hi Mr & Mrs Dave

    Give us a clue - what sorts of places do you two like?

    I mean, we like a nice stately home or a castle. If the weather's nice, gardens to wander about too. We like beaches and countryside and are happy to be alone, but like there to be somewhere to have a nice wander to in the evenings and if we decide we want it a coffee or ice cream, or a drink or sometimes a meal. Maybe a steam train. Perhaps boats to look at, perhaps a car or motorbike museum? Perhaps a trip on a steam barge in the lake district.

    What we don't like is being trapped on a site in the middle of nowhere with no bus services to anywhere nearby, or anywhere with a huge gang of people whose main (or only!) interest seems to be alcohol.

    How about you?

    Welcome to the fun - and it is! We joined in September so hoping to start some proper UK trips soon, the Lake District appeals to us as well as don't know it at all. :LOL:

    Hi Dave and Mrs Dave.
    Welcome to Fun.
    As Movan has said, try and get along to a meet where some of us will be, and you can be assured of a warm welcome, there is certainly no 'snobbery' etc over what M/h you own/drive.
    Give us a clue as to what you enjoy doing when you get away, as Funsters are spread over a large area of the country, inc over the water, I'm sure suggestions won't be slow in being made............you might even get some clean ones :):whistle:

    Anyways, enjoy the forum, enjoy FUN. (y)
