Whitby is a more popular destination on the Yorkshire coast than Scarborough. No offence to Whitby, I just think Scarborough has more to offer. However, we still had a day trip to Whitby and enjoyed the sights. Whitby has a lot to offer with its views, coastline, Abbey, history and shops/cafes. But like last year … More Shots of Whitby
We went up to the Yorkshire coast in June, like we did last September. We stayed in Blue Dolphin caravan resort, which was a much less nice Haven resort compared to Primrose Valley. But I wanted to try a different caravan park. Going for a week this time we had the time to achieve more. … More Scarborough 2021 – a “Great” British tourist destination
On our visit to Somerset in early May we stayed at a Haven caravan site in Burnham on Sea. We chose Somerset over Wales when picking a Haven site as at the time we saw it as too much of a risk to choose Wales because of the varying Covid restrictions between countries. The Haven … More Drab Burnham
This was our first trip since the lockdowns and tier systems of late 2020/early 2021. We spent 3 nights at a Haven caravan park in Burnham on Sea. As we hadn’t been to Somerset before we wanted to see more of the area, so had a day out to Weston-super-Mare. On the day we went … More Weston-super-Mare
In my last blog post I mentioned that we had a holiday booked to Majorca for the start of May, but obviously that has been cancelled now that abroad holidays are going to take place from 17th May at the earliest. However, it is not the end of the world even though I was very … More Holidays booked
This is going to be hard to say….we haven’t been able to go abroad this year….phew I said it and it hurt just writing it! However, that didn’t stop us going away in England multiple times and at the end of September we went to the Yorkshire coast.
Known as the Venice of the Cotswolds, Bourton on the Water is a very popular destination in the Cotswolds, with the pretty shallow river running through the middle of the town that had several small footbridges running across it, I could see the comparison to Venice. We were told that Bourton was the busiest town … More Bourton on the Water
We explored a few towns while in the Cotswolds, all had the same kind of brickwork and architecture. Stow on the Wold was busy and I didn’t expect it to be overly crowded by traffic, but it did have a lot of pretty buildings and great architecture.
Broadway was the last town we visited on our Cotswolds trip. It apparently has the longest high street in the country, mainly because the main street is a big chunk of the whole town itself, on a long stretch of road. Like all the Cotswolds towns we visited the buildings all fitted into the same … More Broadway
While in Buxton we ate breakfast at the Wetherspoons pub on both mornings. We were intrigued to see how they were dealing with reopening with eased lockdown restrictions in place. We had to take a track and trace form from the entrance and fill that out while we ate. We then had to post it … More The new Wetherspoons look
