Not The Motorhome trip No5 : August 22nd – 29th 2015


Didn’t take the motor home as this was our 4th annual family holiday with Craig, Leanne, Bill & Lady dog and had the most wonderful time, weather mixed but some very sunny hot days , lots of beach time plus a 7.8 mile walk between Walberswick and Southwold which surprised us and made us proud and knackered in equal measures!

Visited Southwold, Walberswick,Dunwich,Aldeburgh, Snape Maltings, Caister point , Fox @ Shadingfield, Anchor Inn Walberswick, Icecream parlour in a very wet Aldeburgh for salted caramel/ Belgian choc and dime bar mix (tee hee), Fish & chip lunch Southwold and the saltings way.

Loved the cottage, beautiful views, fruit bushes, cockerel and chickens to feed (naan bread a particular favourite), great company, jigsaws, ale and spirits, world champ athletics and Indian railways on TV and Lady entertaining us ;)

Will definitely bring the campervan back to this area, spied a good one near Bampton and if we could stand it the site outside the Shadingfield Fox although it looked mega – naff!

Anyone else have any Motorhome / RV experiences of this wonderful area of Suffolk they would like to share? If so leave a comment on this blog and we will get back to you, regards Keef & Annie

Motorhome trip No21 : June 19th – 21st 2015


Arrived about 1.45 pm after a rather long and tedious journey where our wonderful satnav took us on a rather roundabout journey, hey ho, maybe its back to the map next time *smile*

Nice campsite, best of british, 81 standing pitches some with water. Very peaceful and quiet and an adult only site. We were on the lower level next to Pete & Joy in pitches 12 & 11 respectively. The 2 higher levels were called Panorama & Top acre, O2 phone service only at Top Acre. Had some probs with van i.e service had left ALL water and gap taps on…. Plus smell of surplur caused by new relay over charging habitation battery – not good news , going back into Don Amotts on Tuesday, hence need for phoe service!

Pete & Joy arrived about 6pm-ish. We had some nice ale and wine to get the weekend started.

Had a lovely lasagne and salad that joy cooked , then pud and cheese, bikkies and wine. Lots of happy talking and then to bed.

Saturday was a bit mixed weather wise. We walked into town via the fields and past many lovely bungalows with great gardens and explored this quaint market town. We had lunch in a town hostelry (Kings Arms – would recommend), saw 1st half of the 5th ODI cricket between NZ & us. Exciting, nice lunch and Kings Arms ale. Walked back and just got back in time before downpour. Reading , chillin in P&J’s van then BBQ for tea – chicken, burgers and large jumbo hot dog sausages and salad followed by English strawberries, raspberries and greek yoghurt. Wine, madiera and port HIC!

Sunday cooked breakfast , P&J had to leave cos daughter was coming around for dinner, said our goodbyes just as the weather really picked up (typical) glorious sunshine.

The site is nice with friendly wardens and excellent facilities , we would definitely return

Then after our goodbyes it was off about 11.30 am for us and onto East Runton and a nice walk to the beach and views of Cromer pier, then onto Wells-next-sea with a lot going on as it was father’s day here in the UK. Walked to beach and wind surfing areas and the little train, then back in the van and off home thru Lincolnshire and Grantham to Sandiacre.

All in all a fab relaxing weekend again! Looking forward to the next time we are there.
