well what can i say?
knaveswell farm corfe castle dorset.
we just had a fab mid-week 4 nts at this new-old fashioned back to (some) basics camping (in a big tented hut)
its like camping, caravanning and a farm break all in one set in the 1930-40's,
a big spacious hut tent (one of 10 tucked away in meadows or trees) free range chickens, no noises except wildlife and steam train when it went past in the cutting.
lovely hosts, thanks paul and jo.
this is what back to the ways we holidayed before the war.
authenctically done, oil lamps, woodburner (yes you have to get up early to light the fire, keep it going to boil your big lettle for tea and a wash then fry your eggs and bacon but god is it worth the effort...YES!!!!
nice new beds and duvets, cotton sheets...all nice
you make up your own beds and wheelbarrow your luggage and stuff from the car, you had to walk upto the fram for milk or bacon in the little well stocked honesty shop..all good exercise...
marvellous for kids to experience the way of life now fast disappearing in the uk.
just do it !
this holiday is not for lazy towny types who want their laptops and phones 24/7 forget it as there is no electric LOL
nor those who want a lie-in!!
it IS for nice people who want a super country holiday like the old days....
