Well that’s it, our season is over and what a year, it was a toughie this year, with the weather not being on our side through the summer, but it’s full of memories, shaved heads, hip replacements, rain, loss, food, lots of food and as much getting in the sea as we could fit in.
Thank you to everyone who came and spent their holidays with us, we are forever grateful for your support.
We will be taking a well earned break and spending time creating memories with our kids, they are growing up so fast so we need to make the most of them wanting to spend time with us!!
Just a mile and a half from us is chapel wood, owned by the RSPB there is a footpath that runs through our campsite that will take you to it. It’s a beautiful walk down and you only have to go on a little bit of country road to get to it.
These woods are beautiful whether you go in spring when the floor is carpeted with bluebells or whether you go in autumn when the colours are stunning and the leaves are crunching under your feet, however I always get an eerie feeling when I’m here, it was worse yesterday and I wouldn’t let the dog off the lead, he was my protector whether he liked it or not!!! I feel like I’ve always had a connection with feelings, spiritual life and for me there is definitely something in those woods, this doesn’t put me off and it felt worse yesterday whether that was because of the weather or it being the ‘spooky’ month I don’t know but I didn’t feel comfortable and really rushed round without fully appreciating the woods.
Next time your here take a walk to the woods and let me know what you feel.
Well hello summer!!!!! Have you seen the weather for this weekend??
If your seeing this and you are not seeing this as a sign to come camping then what on earth are you doing, this weekend the weather looks better than we have had all summer!!
Get your pitch booked, pack up your car and make the most of this weather, this is October!!! We only have 4 weekends left before we close and I can guarantee this will be the best weather you’re gonna get!!!
Yesterday was a sad day because we said goodbye to our warden Pat who has worked and lived with us for 2 years.
Pat his girlfriend Charlie and their pup Rowan were a huge part of our Roadway family, Pat’s passion for gardening and flowers has shown throughout the site over the 2 years with the gardens absolutely blooming under his green fingers.
We wish them well in their new home and are so grateful for the help they have given us over the last 2 years.
So as you may have worked out that leaves a gap in our Roadway family, meaning we are looking for wardens, ideally a couple.
The wardens role will include a wide variety of tasks which keeps the job interesting, such as: Maintenance / Housekeeping / Cleaning / Reception / Gardening / Ground works / You may or may not have experience in some or all these areas but a willingness to work hard with a positive and vibrant outlook could make you a very suitable candidate.
This role will start 1st March 2024 through to 31st Oct approx. (8 months). Your pay will be 30 hours per week per person, paid every 4 weeks. Your working hours will vary in line with season for example, In low season you may work just 25 hours per week with 3 days off per week and in high season you will work around 45 hours per week with 2 days off per week.
The rate of pay is 50p above NMW The wardens will have a private pitch, electricity, and free use of launderette. Applicants must have their own touring caravan. So if you are looking for a slower pace of life and wanna leave the hustle and bustle and would fit in with us, drop me a message.
Do you notice how quick I turned that sad post around, sorry Pat and Charlie, we will miss you but business is business!! 🤣🤣
