If Clearwater is right is that we should continue to see ever-improving facilities, a range of accommodation from basic to luxury and a holiday that is as far removed from the old Carry on Camping film as it is possible to be.

Credit Crunch Camping: part 2

£100 for a long weekend (four days) away? Yes, it is possible! We found a basic (but extremely clean) campsite just outside Bristol, which only cost £15 for three nights.  After pitching the tent, we went for a quick walk in the surrounding woodland, before bed. The next day (Saturday) we set off for the Cheddar Gorge, and our Somerset adventure began…. Cheddar Caves & Gorge: The Cheddar Gorge was a particular highlight for Poppy (my dog) and I.  For just £17.00, we bought a

The recession, an exchange rate which make England look cheap to the rest of Europe and a rise in unemployment is leaving most of the country wondering whether they can even afford a holiday in 2010.  I am one of those people and add a dog to the equation (with kennels costing from £14/night!) and a fortnight away is an unattainable luxury.

Didn’t England Do Well

Feb 20th, 2010 | By

Visit England has announced the results of the business that its members did over the Christmas period and for the whole of 2009. And, it looks like pretty good news for them as many recorded an increase in business over 2008.
44% said that they had more business than previously and 42% said that they had the same level of business meaning that only 14% recorded a drop in business. A drop could mean that it wasn’t due to the overall level of business around but because of new entrants, better marketing or weather or other unforeseen factors (like a long period of roadworks for example) and those hit sales.

Carry on Camping

May 18th, 2009 | By

Yes we all know that more people are staying and holidaying at home this year but what sort of holiday are they taking? Many “experts” went no further than that. But it appears that this year camping is making a big comeback. Always popular with backpackers and students, it appears that the market has grown by at least a quarter in 2009 and may go higher still.A travel insurance company, LV= has published the results of a survey that shows that Cornwall is the most
