Settle in September

Nigel & Helen Edevane have recently returned home having stayed at one of their favourite camp sites The Turbles, near Malvern, (see below). Whilst there were lots of Covid guidelines to follow they felt safe.

At the beginning of September they are heading to Yorkshire and will be staying at the Knight Stainforth Hall Camping and Caravan Park from the 1st to the 6th of September. If you feel brave enough why not join them for a few days? You might find some others that you know also there.

The link to the Knight Stainforth Hall website is here if you want to check availability and to book.

In the meantime Helen and Nigel will be returning to another old haunt – Run Cottage in Suffolk.

The Turbles is an Adults Only site and the link to their web-site is here.

For info the site sets a maximum van length of 24 foot.

    Hi Nigel & Helen, If Boris passes us a curve-ball and we do not go to France, then will try and join you.

    We stayed a couple of nights in York a couple of weeks ago (in a hotel, the Rowntree Park CMC Site was full as usual). We tried out the new tourist train that had started running the week before. It runs from Skipton and Settle to Appleby. It is designed as a tourist service, and you can either go for over 8 hours at Appleby to go hiking etc, or go for just 1-hour stay in Appleby. We did the latter. The carriages are all first class so that the windows are large and line up properly with the seats. Before you get on the train the tables, etc are sanitised. There are new Perspex screens between each row of seats and the air-conditioning has special filters, so they tell you that you can remove your mask while on the train. Due to cv19 you have to book tickets in multiples of 2. We enjoyed it, although remember the best views of the Ribblehead viaduct are from walking underneath it,

    There is a scheduled services as well, which is running at reduced frequency at present and which costs less than the tourist train,

    We have booked at Knights Stainforth C &; C Park from Sept 4th to 11th so hopefully will see Nigel and helen before they leave. Ian`s description of railway journey sounds good, will hopefully try it out. We were thinking of Settle to Carlisle train journey if it is running. Thanks for the helpful tips. Pam & Bill
