I love the new rug and the space inside that tent seems incredibly homely. I really like your camping cupboard motif, I have a tall cupboard in black, maybe I could do something nice with that! Any suggestions?
the flowers were easy, sunflowers would be good with the citrus tent of yours!

On the subject of ebay bargains, i've just bought a Kampa Cromer off ebay on a whim and realised it's not much smaller than my house in ground rent terms :)

Do all sites stick rigidly to pitch sizes or is there flexibility.

I only tried camping for the first time a few weeks ago and love it.

Unfortunately i saw a post? by someone saying " you can never have enough tents" or summat like that.

I have since bought (second hand) Gelert Horizon 8, Khyam Harvard Deluxe 5000 as well as the Kampa.

I think i may need to disconnect my internet connection :)

Haha BoltonLoyal!

It's a never ending love affair, being a camper! As they say, you can never have too many tents!! I think we all have OCD on here, it's not a bad thing though!!

Atleast you'll never be caught short!!

Val - Beautiful Cabanon you have there! Love the interior designing!!!

I thought that too. It it looks like he's saying "can't believe they fell for that old 'can't get over the stile' trick".

You can't see it from the road directly underneath I will agree but you can see it from miles away as the land directly in front of it is flat.

You can see it at couple of points along the B4507 which runs underneath, but admittedly the angle is awkward and you don't see it that well. You can see it clearly from the A417 and A420. You can't see it from the Lambourn road because thats the wrong side

Oh no, i so hope my wife doesn't see you tent, i keep telling her to keep everything basic and minimalistic. It's not working though as we now have a pink fridge. I think a trip to Ikea will be on the cards soon.

Lovely dog, we have a very cute lab puppy of 8 months who so far loves camping
