Camping Recipes: Side Dishes

I sometimes find when camping that our meals get a little meat and carb heavy.  Lately I have tried to cook more balanced dishes and these sides are a great way to make veggies the star of the show. Baked Sweet Potato I am a massive sweet potato […]

What Type of Camper Are You?

Camping is great for people watching. Over the last few years I’ve noticed several different types of camper, so thought I’d write about some of my favourites. Do you recognise yourself here?! The Instagram Camper I first came into contact with the fabled ‘Instagram Camper’ when we were […]

Hardwick Hall

I’m always looking for an interesting day out, and so decided to fit in another outing on the way back from our Peak District mini break. We called in at Hardwick Hall, our second National Trust visit after Longshaw, and had a fantastic time. It had all the […]
