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!
