One of the delights in doing what we are now doing is stumbling on new places that we have not visited in all the years that we have holidayed in our caravan or booked holiday cottages. The nature of our transient existence means that we have to move on from time to time. Wiltshire and Somerset were two of those counties that were near enough to NOT really want go to when we lived in Hampshire. Sure we did Cheddar Gorge, Bristol, Bath, Longleat and so on as day trips but there was never enough of a draw to make us want to stay for much longer.
A bit like when we needed to go to Lincoln to have the smart car and towbar fitted Devizes and in particular it’s surrounding area and villages have been an unexpected delight. The walks on the Kennet and Avon canal are a real treat and Lacock, & Castle Combe are both must sees for anyone visiting the area.
We wish we had more time to explore as we have not even scratched the surface yet, let alone walked out onto the hills with their chalk horse carvings and stone circles but having to cut our stay short to catch up with my old walking buddy means that we will have to return at some time.
The camping and caravaning club site is right on the canal side, run by Jason and Debbie it’s one of the prettiest we have been on. It must be stunning in the summer.
Now it’s raining and the ideal driving day as we are off to Devon and Tavistock.
