Camping Wine Holder

Sometimes the simplest designs endure the longest and that is no exception with Wine Holders UK. Richard & Lynn have created 2 wonderfully designed, well executed and carefully constructed wine holders. These are perfectly crafted for camping, caravanning or the great outdoors in mind.   Two versions are available. The 1st version is a double glass holder. it supports 2 wine glasses by gripping the stem of the glass and it is remarkably stable too.  We used this version in soft muddy ground. I did expect that with both glasses full and being used frequently the spike would wobble....

Stovetop Coffee

Let’s face it, one of the most important tasks to perform in the morning is to put the kettle on for a tea or coffee. In the mornings our household is exclusively in the coffee camp and we really love our fresh coffee. I’ve wanted a stove top coffee percolator for some time, but finding one that is big enough for everyone and is suitable for use in the caravan has proven quite tricky. However I did by chance find a great coffee pot in Lakeland. It makes up to 8 cups (and these are real cups, not expresso cup sizes) and is made from stainless steal. It works like this. You fill the pot with...

Caravan Club UK Sites

Thankfully a couple of posts on a Forum highlighted that the Caravan Club UK Sites app was available on both Android & Apple devices. I downloaded the app today and I thought I would share my initial thoughts with you.   Look & Feel The application is really straight forward and is instantly recognisable for members who book their sites using the online facility on the Caravan Club website. Its beautifully...

The Cotswold Getaway

The Cotswolds. Possibly our favourite part of the west country. And we are so lucky to have this on our doorstep. We decided back in 2015 that we really must make a trip back to the Cotswolds and stay over for a few days. We decided that Moreton-In-Marsh was a great location, far enough away from home to make it feel like a holiday but close enough and familiar enough that we knew where we wanted to visit. Initially we thought that February would be fairly quiet, but upon arrival, nothing could have been further from the truth. The fact was the site was 100% full on the first night meant...

Useful apps while camping

The addition of technology has helped in every element of day to day living and my expectation of camping was to depart from the technology for just a few days. I wasn’t expecting, however, to find applications that help with the setting up and overall caravanning experience. But I have. I’ve found some really helpful applications and I thought I would share these with you   *We use Apple devices, but there are many applications that provide the same functionality on Android devices too.   Doggity Finding a dog friendly pub close by can be quite a challenge, especially when you are...
