Some of the best of summer England has to offer 33C on the mid wednesday , we both picked up a tan

3 centre stays: 2 ACSI sites-Brean Sands & Briarfields, Cheltenham & 1 affiliated Caravan Club site, Lucksall


Motorhome trip No22 : June 27th – July 8th 2015


NOTTS->SOMERSET,GLOUCESTERSHIRE,MONMOUTHSHIRE & HEREFORDSHIRE ->NOTTS 605 miles


Left Saturday and drove down to Brean Sands, Somerset for 4 days at Holiday Resort Unity, the weather really picked up and we both picked up a bit of a tan. The site was basic. A large open field, good facilities for the price and free entertainment – transport to and from our pitch every 30 mins. Saw abba tribute band, excellent, walked along Berrow beach and thru Brean Sands Leisure park and back to Pitch. Took van out to see Burham on Sea which was lovely. We did a whole lotta relaxing after a strenuous period of decorating / house renovations.


Left Somerset on the Wednesday and travelled up the M5 to our next acsi site at Briarfields just off junction 11, great access for the city of Gloucester and the town of Cheltenham. Took the van into see Gloucester, a fab city with historic dock side and cathederal and bus to Cheltenham, both served by good bus stops outside the site. Bus no 94, get a day rover £.60 cheltenham, £5 Gloucester. In Cheltenham we were very lucky, great weather and a music festival at the Montpellier gardens, ace time, Erica are a good local band. Before these 2 visits on a rainy day we took the van thru the Forest of Dean a nice area seeing Lydney, Littledean Jail museum and having lunch at Sling amongst others and we also crossed the border into wales to visit Monmouth a fab town/ city and home of Charles Rolls (Rolls Royce) and Henry V. we spent 4 days in this area as well


Left on the Sunday and did the short trip to Herefordshire where we stayed at the fab Lucksall campsite on the edge of the river Wye, a little more expensive but great base and location. Nice café, great cheap cooked brekkies and facilities although they could do with afew more showers for such a big site, it was always busy and its not full yet. Great base for fishing / canoeing which was what attracted most , not us however ;) Weather very mixed for these 3 days so we toured… very interesting;- Ross on Wye, Goodrich Castle, Hereford, Much Marcle, Ledbury and developed a taste for good quality high alcohol content perry and cider. On the Wednesday we returned home refreshed, tanned and happy…. Here’s to the next trip
