Camping Trip

Despite the weather forecasts for the weekend, we went ahead as planned with our camping trip. It's not too far from home to just ditch and come home if it was really bad. It was our first real pitch with the new tent, the Vango Maritsa 500 (we got it far cheaper than this from Go Outdoors but they don't seem to have ti listed atm).

The campsite we went to was Holme Valley Camping & Caravan Park (yes, it's a v basic website!). We had a lovely time. I have to say that the owners were very friendly and helpful and the showers/toilets were always clean.

The ducks were a little over-friendly though...they ate our leftover curry that was sat outside :-o

We went into Holmfirth on the Saturday and there was lots going on. There was bunting all over the place

We went to Emma's Tea Parlour where Erin had a kids' afternoon tea, which comes with apple juice in a child's tea pot and her own cup and saucer. I thought this was a fantastic idea!

There was cake after too!

It happened to be Holmfirth Arts Festival and there were lots of free workshops in the market. Unfortunately the problem with doing lots of crafts is that I'd already done most of them. the only workshop I fancied was the rag rug one but it was a 2-hour workshop and we didn't have time. I also found I'd missed an evening with Kaffe Fassett. Whoever made the carrot cake that was on sale for 50p, it was delicious!

On Sunday we drove over to Hebden Bridge for a look around the shops and a wander. We bought some tea from a lovely shop; Hebden Tea.
