Whitby... a place to get your teeth into!

The aim was to pootle over to Sandfield House Farm, (a Club Listed Site 094/164) just north of the delightful seaside town of Whitby on Friday afternoon and have two nights there, soaking up the morning sun on the breathtaking North Yorkshire coast.

Instead, “soaking” was the operative word as the TV forecasts projected weather more akin to last winter’s storms than gentle May breezes – and it put the brakes on the chauffeur’s plan to pack up the ‘van and head east.

Their first GSD, Sam, once hid under the bed, afraid of the thunder and lightning that shook the ‘van in the middle of the night. The space was too small for a big dog, and as a result none of the trio could sleep.

Cleethorpes filled us with glee (and bacon)

Now, if you were to throw a few names of popular seaside resorts into the air you'd probably catch Blackpool, Skegness, Brighton, Weymouth, Penzance or one of our particular favourites, Cromer.

M&T CleethorpesBut a couple of weeks ago we ended up at a place that, although not exactly off the beaten track, isn't one that you'd instantly think of.

Cleethorpes is on the North East Lincolnshire coast, just south east of Grimsby. Hmmm... doesn't exactly fill you with inspiration, does it? But give it a chance - it might surprise you.

Ted harks back to a swift lesson in bird watching

Hello! Ted and I hope everyone has had a lovely Easter. Do manufacturers make Easter eggs especially for furry friends? If not, maybe they are missing a trick.

We haven't been away over Easter as we all like a bit of peace and quiet, so the hustle and bustle of a Bank Holiday leaves us a bit perplexed. So we'll be looking for nice, open sites to enjoy this spring and summer, where we can amble along coastal paths to enjoy the sea air and also listen to the skylarks singing.

The main camping field was open and spacious, with a large, central area for children (and dogs) to play. As it was late summer, there were lots of swallows and swifts flying around, catching flies to eat. They were thoroughly enjoying themselves, squealing and darting around the field.
