Sunny 'Hunny' cost lots of money…

Being good honest Yorkshire-based campers, we all like a bargain.

Whether it's a pre-loved dog bed from a car boot sale that can be washed and packed up for extra holiday comfort, or trimming a couple of pence per litre off our fuel costs thanks to being a loyal shopper, we like to watch the pennies.

So although we enjoyed very much our trip to sun-kissed Hunstanton - 'Sunny Hunny' as it is nicknamed - we were somewhat aghast to learn that our chosen site charged for canine companions to join the fun.
