Is a caravan holiday a cheaper alternative?

According to my non-caravanning friends, they think using a caravan is a cheaper way of having a holiday. I on the other hand think it is far from cheap, so in this article let’s explore the options and see if caravanning is a great way of getting away on a budget.     However, right from the start we have a problem. We cannot realistically compare a week in Greece to a 7-day caravan holiday in Tenby. Apart from the weather difference here is my rationale: An all-inclusive holiday for a week in Lyttos Beach, Heraklion Are, in Crete, will cost £3,892* (including a child goes free...

Caravanning : More than just freedom?

Its 17:53 and I’m strutting around the house with a beer and an aura of accomplishment. You see today I’ve been digging up the roots for two Hydrangea in our back garden. Just ridding the garden of these 2 mammoth plants has effectively doubled our garden size. Go me. Whilst I was swearing, heaving and hoeing in the garden today I found along with an unfortunate ear worm (Laughing gnome by David Bowie) that I was repeating, “I’d rather be in the caravan, I’d rather be in the caravan” and looking on social media this evening, it appears we are the only people in the world that are not away in...

Love2Stay

It was sometime earlier this year that I started to see a lot of positive reviews of Love2Stay.

Easter break 2018

Easter is usually the time when Spring really starts to show its arrival in the countryside around us. We’ve had great times camping during the Easter break, the weather has always been slightly dubious, but generally it’s been bright, sunny and full of Spring time promise. Not this year. Nope, Easter was a washout. And for some that were away in the caravan, it was more than a wash out – snow was very much on the cards. For us however, we were treated to some wonderful days of constant rain. Camping at the Caravan & Motorhome club in Longleat we were joined by the Hardhams’ for 4 days...
