Tewkesbury & Friends

May day bank holiday saw us visit a site just on the outskirts of Tewkesbury. Croft Farm Water Park offers hard standing and grass pitches for touring and camping, seasonal and cabin accommodation all situated around a lake. The site contains a boathouse, that offer a wide array of water activities along with a gym, shop and small café area. We decided that this site would be a great place to visit with our closest friends and have a long weekend together. We arrived on the Friday and despite some confusion about the one way system, how to get the caravan from one side of the lake to the...

Nextbase 412GW Dash Cam.

If you spend any time on YouTube you will see a whole section of clips dedicated to Dash cam footage. You will be amazed at the collisions, close calls and random events that unfold right in front of your very eyes. I too have experienced close calls and a variety of random events while driving, but the level of badly behaved drivers right in front of me has escalated since I have been towing a caravan. A few years ago I did install a dash cam for this exact reason, and while the camera was good, it didn’t last. In fact when I did need the footage, I couldn’t get anything from the memory...

Our announcement

I’m delighted to announce that we are teaming up with Swindon Caravan Group to produce some excellent content in the coming months. As our YouTube channel grows we feel that some topics we want to cover need input from the industry and it makes sense that we team up with the dealership that we have a good connection with, after all, It was Swindon Caravans that we purchased our caravan from back in 2014. We found Swindon Caravans were fair, honest and above all extremely easy to deal with when we purchased our caravan. The ethos of non-pushy yet a professional and helpful service is a...

Caravan & Motorhome Wi-Fi

Caravan & Motorhome Wi-Fi

Apart from shelter, warmth food & water possibly next most important thing to have while camping is Wi-Fi. Well, maybe not, but if you are a teenager these days the Wi-Fi is pretty high up the priorities list. Getting a connection to the digital world can be summed up as problematic at best and impossible at worst when on site. I have shared our method of getting on-line in the video at the bottom of this post and in it I show what devices we use to get on line. We use a HooToo Trip Mate Titan as our primary connection (Here is our original review of the device), we do this to take...

Caravan and Motorhome Club

Caravan and Motorhome Club

Today the Caravan Club has announced a rebranding from “The Caravan Club” to “The Caravan & Motorhome Club”. This is a really important step forward incorporating Motorhomes into the Clubs brand & identity. Motorhomes are well catered for by so many of the Clubs sites and loved by so many of the Club members, it seems only logical that the Club updates its name and brand to align the Caravan & Motorhome communities together. Just last week, Angela & I looked on as a Motorhome arrived, reversed in, hooked up to the Electrical hook up and the owner then made a cup of tea....

Mug & Glassware storage

Since we have had the caravan our wine cabinet has been a mess. We only really use the cabinet for holding the glasses when we are in transit. While on site the glasses and mugs are usually on the side ready for instant beverage relief. Transporting the mugs has always included a process of packing them in a way that they won’t move around or worse break while being bumped about. I have always thought of creating a nice mug and glassware container to fit the wine cupboard and now I have finally gotten around to completing it. I used the same material I used when mounting the LEDs. This...
