A Room With A View

 We took the caravan yesterday morning down some of the prettiest but narrowest little lanes in Kent and East Sussex yesterday without any real mishaps. The little Caravan Club Certified Location site we are staying on is beautiful! Certified locations are very small caravan sites set up by farmers or people with land who are allowed to have up to five caravans on site at one time. This one is so spacious and we have our own electricity hook up. The really kind helpful man who runs the site had chosen us an area at the end under the trees so it would be shady for our dogs. It is one of the most spacious pitches we have ever had. The only slight downside is the internet access is rather sketchy but that is quite nice in one way as I have books and sun lounger! For the first few days we are just going to relax and walk the dogs.

We have a totally private area next to the hedge where we can sit outside and eat our meals if the weather is nice. All you can hear are the birds singing. After all the effort of getting it, we couldn't bring ourselves to put up the awning as it would block our beautiful view. This is the view we look out of the caravan to. The only houses we can see are a few typical Kentish Oast houses that are dotted all over the place in the area. 


I'm going to take lots of photos of the area and our caravan inside and out over the next few weeks but I may have to wait until we pop back home for a day to post them online because of problems with the internet in the area. I hope everyone has a really lovely Sunday and manages to enjoy some sunshine. xx

  1. We have always used Caravan club, we loved their smaller sites, often in the most beautiful locations, we used them in 90's with our caravan, and later with our campervan, they gave us everything we required without the crowds.

  3. When we moved to the smallholding in 1992 we started a Caravan Club Certificated site but the inspector was so rude that after a couple of years we changed over to a Camping and Caravan Club site and took tents as well as the 5 'vans allowed and ran it for the next 20 years - all good fun!

  6. Such a beautiful view from your camping spot, "pitch"? I've never heard them called pitches before! I hope you are blessed with wonderful weather and lots of relaxation.
    Blessings,

  7. I always love a trip over to East Sussex. It feels very different to West Sussex....rather wilder somehow. Arilx

  8. Have a nice time. It looks so peaceful. We used to stay on little camping and caravan club sites in our campervan. We loved it.

  9. What a perfect camping spot!! The fact that you're away from other campers and have such a beautiful view too makes it perfect.

  10. Have a wonderful break - I'm so looking forward to seeing your pictures, when you can! Terribly jealous of that view!
    I "did up" my own caravan in spring/ summer 2018 with a tight deadline to go away for a wedding, but I wasn't restoring it as you are - that's a project I'd love to get my teeth into!
