    happy camping, dee

    Hi Dee and how wonderful!

    I wish there were more caravan and MH friendly pubs around. It would make long journeys so much easier.


      Hi Dee

      Thanks Dee, We will certainly pop in if we are down your way and passing. What could be nicer than a meal out, a glass of wine and then collapse in bed afterwards without having to drive home.


        Hi Dee

        Have just been for a walk past your pub with the little yellow man from Google. Pub seemed familiar and if so we were in there a good few years ago and not sure if you were then but we had the best bacon sandwich ever!

        Am pretty sure it was the same pub.


          Hi Dee

          What a nice offer and thank you.

          I wish I had known about you three weeks ago, I spent a night in a layby

          just north of Umberleigh befor going to Umberleigh CCC site, it would have

          been much better in a pub car park.

          Will keep you in mind for future use, thanks again.

            Hi Dee
            Thanks for the information, what a great place to stop, I'm not one for wild camping but would feel very safe here, Good meal, good pint or two, then hop into bed in the car park, what could be better, note taken. Thanks.

              Hi again Dee - this also looks like a good place to let ppl know you're there:


              and useful for anyone else on a long journey! (except me, in a caravan )

              Also the widlcamping sites are always looking for new entries for the pub car park threads.
