Shallow Grange Campsite

September 2015

At least one each week, I remember that I’ve still yet to write a single word on the camp site I stayed at back in September…

This has been on-going for about eight-months now… As I contemplate where I might be looking to stay this summer, I’ve decided to go ahead and get it done. There is no reason for this huge delay, other than my own procrastination.

Camping Plans for 2016

A brand-new year is already two-weeks underway! Over the Christmas break, I took a few minutes to jot down a couple of short lists – one for potential walks; the other for ideal camping destinations.

Weekend in’t Derbyshire

Just over twenty-four hours ago, I returned home after an extended weekend break in Derbyshire, camping very close to the Peak District National Park.

Over the next few posts, I intend to share, in detail, each of my experiences from what was essentially four days and three nights in an unfamiliar landscape.

In this post, I’ll simply share a few photos from some of the main highlights, in order to whet your appetite.

Dorset 2015 Preview

Having just returned from a fresh weekend in Dorset, I’m excited by the prospect of all I have to write about and share.

But as I don’t currently have the time to do it right now (not to mention the incredible number of photos be sifted through), I’ll leave you with a visual preview in this post. There are also a couple of other topics I need to complete before I can begin to write about Dorset.

Westermill Farm

As mentioned in my previous post; Westermill Farm was the campsite I chosen to stay at during the Perambulation Weekend down in Exmoor, Somerset. It was also the weekend of the summer solstice and, in anticipation of the fact that many others might be looking to get-away for the occasion, I asked about the necessity of booking in advance of my arrival… To which I was told the same as when I enquired around August last year; that booking wasn’t essential and that I could simply turn up, pay my fees and camp (provided that I didn’t arrive in the middle of the night).

2015: Year of Camping

This weekend was supposed to be my final camping weekend of the year. I could sit here and list a bundle of reasons as to why I’ve instead decided to stay at home but there’s no point on dwelling over what cannot be changed. I have a busy couple of weekends ahead but if I can spare a few days in early-to-mid October then I’d still like to make an effort to head down to Exmoor and get away from everything.

 

While my camping adventures for 2014 may end away with the warmer weather, I can now begin to look forward to and plan ahead for where I might like to go in 2015.
