Dolly The Caravan Goes Camping

These captured moments were taken last year.

It was July and we’d taken Dolly The Vintage Caravan to a farm nearby our home; for a camping weekend with a couple of other families.

It was a baking hot weekend and our friends were due to arrive,  from London,  later on in the day. We’d finished setting up camp and I’d wandered off with the camera.

It’s such a beautiful place.

The view from the hill is magical. There are not many places, in the UK,  that still have views of unbroken countryside.

These days, the skyline is littered with pylons, telephone lines and windmills.

Dolly The Caravan in all her glory

A little slice of heaven…

This is a rare place indeed.

We’re lucky enough that the farm is owned by the parents of some really good friends. As a result,  we’ve been lucky enough to spend a lot of time there.

There’ve been festivals and parties held there. And since having the boys,  there’s nothing we like better than to head off in Dolly The Caravan. On a spur of the moment camping trip.

Taking the littles camping is something I LOVE.

Particularly when it’s to a non-commercial campsite! Being able to kick of your shoes and run about freely — and safely — is a gorgeous feeling. For adults and children alike.

I can’t wait for the weather to warm up so we can do it all over again!

These pictures remind me so well of such a lovely weekend!

Everything was so quiet. And as I came back to the van, I could see my three favourite boys; sitting at the table, with the most glorious view behind them.

We’re so lucky to live in this beautiful country. Memories,  like these,  are ones to be treasured.

    1. Thanks Georgie — I hated caravans when I was younger!! They always look so boring! Decorating Dolly was lots of fun — it’s lovely going away for weekends in her now — like a proper little home from home! :) x

  2. This made me miss camping a lot. We started last year but when the weather started to get cold we have to stop. I wish we have a caravan! But we will definitely go back into it this spring summer! This looks like a lovely day =) #countrykids

  3. I long for summer days like this again and the freedom of outdoors without coats and jumpers. Only a month or so now and a few days like this may well shine through. Your camping spot looks idyllic. thank you for sharing on Country Kids.

  4. I love the fact you have a caravan called Dolly! Can we go on holiday together please? hee hee! I have a friend I know you would love! She too LOVES trance like you and I! We went to Santa Pod for Bug Jam – it was truly amazing! She did a cheeky wind up on me and said “we are going back to the tent now” only to be coaxed into a tent playing HARD TRANCE!!! That’s why she’s one of my bests! Beautiful captured moments gorgeous lady!! Love you!! xxx

    1. Haha! Bless Dolly — she’s like a member of our family!! Yes — you’re more than welcome to come with us — the more the merrier! ;) Santa Pod is just down the road from us, funnily enough, although I’ve never been! Thanks lovely — love you lots :) X

    1. Aww thanks gorg!! We bought Dolly before we had the boys and she’s only 2 berth — we spent so much time prettying her up though that I feel sad to part with her to upgrade to a 4 berth!! X
