So far we had been camping in UK twice this year…and both times there were yellow weather warnings!
We were more hopeful for last weekend… only to discover we’d gone camping on the coldest May Day Bank Holiday since the holiday was first instituted in 1978. And we’d inflicted our crazy camping on friends!!
Despite the weather everyone seemed to have a good time. We just huddled round the campfire and then slept with lots and lots of layers and our hot water bottles. (If you’re not in the habit of taking hot water bottles camping, you must start, it makes such a big difference on a chilly night).
We were staying at Britchcombe Farm and we have updated our review of the site here. It is a good campsite for groups – we were a group of 12, including 3 children with a motley collection of tents, gazebos and a campervan, but Britchcombe is spacious and flexible enough for this not to be an issue.
Hopefully our friends might consider coming with us again sometime…we’ll put in an order for sunshine next time!
