Will be back

This is what we like a site to be like, booked the site before arrival for six nights prior to heading to the Lake District. The road from Longtown to the site does narrow up as you approach the site and can be used by HGVs going to or coming from farms further along the road. An extra to this is when you are leaving the site in a car/caravan combo you have to have good neck muscles ( a mirror fitted across the other side of the road would be a benefit ) or get your passenger to stand in the road lol. When on the site, we were placed on pitch 4 nothing wrong with the pitch but you do need long fresh water and grey water pipes to reach the tap/drain. We placed the van and awning on the gravel and left the car in the parking space, no cars allowed on the grass. Adele brought us some eggs around which were much appreciated, the local food outlets are very good we had Sunday lunch at the Graham Arms Inn and the chips from the Esk cafe are very good. We had a ride out to see Carlisle Castle but as we have seen most of the Border Regions we stayed on-site and benefitted from the excellent weather the problem with that, was that one of the local biting insects decided to leave me with an infected leg. The day before we left Adele was talking to the member that was stopping on pitch 5 about being a Calor gas retailer and mentioned that she had a couple of Lites in stock, mine had just run out so a deal was done at a very good price. We will be back as Arnold says.
