2019 started off with our usual annual group trip to Fisherground campsite in the beautiful Eskdale. Unlike other years, it rained pretty much all day Saturday but I put my new tarp to good use and it saved 5 adults and 3 kids from getting soaked through. This was the late May Bank Holiday which is usually red hot summer weather.
We also went back to Derbyshire, staying at Callow Top campsite, which had an outdoor pool! Next, we enjoyed the Deershed Festival in July which was their 10th anniversary. And what a show! We were soaked to the bone but very happy with the organisation, food, music, and camping.
We’ve already had several fab camping weekends this summer, starting with our annual May Bank holiday trip to Fisherground campsite. 2 weeks later, Grizedale Rocks at the Bowkerstead Farm campsite, 2 weeks after that a quick trip to the Lake District to Gill Head Farm (we can highly recommend the Boot and Shoe Inn in nearby Greystoke for dinner), then in July, the Peak District staying at Moor Hay Farm. I’ll write them all up individually when I get more than a moment.
