Admin: Review posted. Back from 8 days here. Adult only site. Had a great time, relaxing and some interesting places visited. We joined the National Trust 95 for a year for 2 people as visiting some of these Stately Homes and gardens and paying entry fees each time can work out very expensive. Although the weather could have been better it didn't stop us having some great days out. A big thank you to my DW for getting me out there. So a few pics of tent, site and days out.


And she`s off










Loads of space and not overlooked











NOW SHE IS JUST TAKING THE P*55



Dinner Time.



No poppies this time Mucker



And I thought she said "A roll in the hay darling?"









BIBURY











The Bank Holiday Crowd.



The day after. Must have been something I said.



Chastleton House.









Elephant Grass. Better than any windbreak. Oh and DW.



Getting fruity!





Snowshill Manor














Finaly. Sod the weather. Its great to be alive.

Great photos Geoff. I grew up in the Cotswolds, lovely to see all those beautiful Cotswold stone buildings again!
Great set up and I love the chairs with their cushions!!

Absolutely superb. Really chuffed for you both. Great set of pics, as one would expect, but without doubt, under the circumstances, this is by far the best pic (and sentiment, of course) of the year...

Oh, and as for those poxy chairs and shocking(ly) pink lady-cushions, all I can say is... Thank God you only had a back door, and not a front one!!!

Great photos Geoff and lovely interior Wendy

I have field barn on my list of sites to visit as it is only about 40 mins from us. Just got to get rid of DS for a few days.

Lovely pics & so glad you both had the chance to camp so soon after a very worrying time.

But me for 1 loves the brightly coloured chairs & i think maybe you should hold back on directors chairs ...unless maybe get some old 1's off ebay & change over the covers from the lovely 1's you already have !!

Another thought maybe you should get the matching tent

Nice pics and brought back a few memories of Field Barn Park. I went there shortly after they first opened and that elephant grass was just knee high to a grasshopper.

You do know that I absolutely love the rest of it, don't you, Wendy? And that I think you did an excellent job of the pitching etc... and not in a patronising, chauvinistic kinda way either?
You did get that, didn't you? It did come across clearly in my first post, didn't it?

... and your hair looks nice.





... Have I done enough grovelling yet?

Fab pics Geoff, as ever. You have a real eye for an interesting shot.

Love NT. Can be good for lunch, too. Have already bookmarked Snowshill for our drive back up next year.

I will let you off then Mucker..but a bit more grovelling wouldnt go a miss I do like to see men grovelling...as for the chairs..we wanted to buy some wooden directors chairs but couldnt find the colour I wanted so saw them for 7.00 and thought theyed do for now..a bargain I thought.. but might rethink the cushions

Great photos and brought memories of last year's main holiday back. Snowshill Manor is a bizarre place but very interesting. Looks like it wasn't all rain - which is good. Glad you had a good time!
