Warming by the campfire in a forest
We catch up with Megan Hine, to find out just what makes her tick.
  1. My favourite outdoor place is the Long Mynd here in Shropshire. It’s the hills in my own backyard and has a lot of memories and somewhere we have always taken the kids.

  9. My favourite outdoor place is Martinshaw Wood, a beautiful area of mixed woodland on an Ancient site close to where I live. I walk my dogs in it, and have run Forest School sessions there as well. It has inspired my love of wooded places as well as my developing interest in Bushcraft.

Caravan Challenge Over - So how was it?

Our caravan at Boroughbridge Campsite
After 10 months of travelling around the country, our caravan treasure hunt challenge is over. But how did we do?
  1. It’s a shame that you’ve failed the challenge but what a set of trips you’ve had, every cloud eh?!? When you were in Norfolk you should have ventured to the north Norfolk coast there are loads of awesome places to stay and lots to see as well. I live in north Norfolk so I am biased but I’d say http://www.kellingheath.co.uk is my favourite camp site in the country. I love to sit up at night and just observe the day change to night, the wildlife to be seen is incredible and the night sky is a well-kept natural secret. It’s also really close to the beach which is awesome on the lovely days for bit of paddling and sand castle building.

    • Hi Dan,

      Thanks for the tip. It looks a great site.

      We really liked visiting Norfolk, but it’s a long drive from where we live.  Mind you – we’ve only just got back from southern Europe with the caravan. Now that is a long trip!
