Follow our journey as we tour in our Hymie around Britain and Europe.
Last minute decision to go camping over the weekend, resulted in a bit of a search, a little bit of research, throwing ideas and going for it.
It wasn’t a bank holiday, there was a chance the weather was going to be perfect, a rare thing, and with Ben is preparing for his GCSE; revising, we went for a much needed break.
We headed south, not too far from home to sunny Cheshire. Traffic jam was the norm, so we took our time getting to the campsite. No rush, just sit back, relax and watch the fools making hazardous mistakes on the motorway.
We arrived at Blakemere around 7pm, we could see the campsite from the main road, as it is very new, trees have only just been planted, no doubt in the near future they will grow tall and hide the campsite from view.
We chose to stay on a gold-pitch, and were shown to our pitch by the warden. The gold-pitch includes an electrical hook-up point, TV aerial connection, grey water disposal point and a fresh water tap.
The toilet block is just a few steps away from our pitch and are very clean. Behind the toilet/shower block there is a food preparation/washing up area and kids play park. Quite handy to keep an eye on the children, while busy with washing dishes.
Once organised everything we went to explore the campsite. This campsite provides plenty of space for motorhomes, caravans and tents.
Across from the campsite are shops and a pub. We went for a fish and chips take away from the pub. A good satisfying deal for £24 for 4 portions.
On Saturday, we went to explore the many shops that are located across the road. There is plenty to do with young children, not so much with older children, but we still enjoyed a lovely quiet weekend away 🙂
