King of the ‘castle'!

I’d like to wholeheartedly endorse this location, Ashby Park, which proudly displays the fact that it is a Club ‘Listed’ Site at its welcoming reception.

There’s a picture here of aptly named Tiny and me at playtime (right), and I also met a lovely lass called Lil, whose human friends spend many weeks of the year in their holiday home on the site. That said, this site is so extensive that ‘statics’ and tourers can happily coexist without anyone feeling hemmed in.

Likewise with fishermen and bird watchers there are several fantastic, peaceful lakes in which lurk fish of incredible proportions. I very much enjoyed an early morning meander with the maid around these lakes before she went to work.

Borders galore to meet and greet…

Border meet June

What a grrrreat idea! The internet has lots of positive uses and on Sunday there was a terrier treat in store for me as I was whisked off in the car to a ‘meet’ of boisterous, scruffy little chaps who all looked a bit like me!

And why not? This was a day for socialising with my fellow breed, the intelligent and endearing Border Terrier though I say it myself, we are very popular! Famous BT owners include Andy Murray, Sir Elton John, Janet Street Porter and David Walliams and who can argue with their choice?

Lincolnshire poachers and Yorkshire pinchers!

Ted at Heath FarmLast year, the maid and chauffeur would not have dreamed of descending on a rural retreat in the flatlands of Lincolnshire, several miles away from shops and bus stops. But now Milly can be left alone on site while we jump into the Honda CRV and seek food and adventure without having to pack everything away. I’m finally seeing why the chauffeur chose to go back to caravanning!

Heath Farm Caravan Site is a picturesque retreat just off the A17 near Sleaford in the hamlet of North Rauceby. It’s easy to find from the main road as it’s also the home of the Cranwell Aviation Heritage Centre and there are brown tourism signs to this free attraction en route.

Heath Farm signHow lovely it was to sweep into this sun-dappled site without having to encounter security barriers, expansive reception areas with staff in walkie-talkie contact with colleagues directing caravanners to their anonymous pitch, or noisy amusement centres.
