Molly and Ted head south

With so much rain having fallen in the south of England, the chauffeur and the maid want to show their support for hard-pressed site owners in the south and south west this summer.

Seaford PromenadeOne place I'd love to return to is a little-known traditional seaside town on the south coast, nicely situated between Brighton (to the west) and Eastbourne - Seaford, in pretty East Sussex.

Eagle-eyed campers and caravanners will have seen stories in the newspapers earlier this year about a rare visitor that was blown off course by the violent storms. The great skua, a large seabird that should have been wintering in sunnier climes in Senegal, West Africa, ended up taking a breather at Seaford en route to its destination.

But maybe this bird decided it was worth a stop-off. We certainly enjoyed it and yet again, the chauffeur and the maid stumbled across a site that was perfectly placed for travelling without having to pack up their 'van each time they wanted to take Ted and me out for the day.

Buckle Holiday Park on Marine Parade, Seaford, is less than a minute's walk from a fantasticA tired Molly promenade from which you can watch the Newhaven-Dieppe ferry crossing the English Channel. The prom is popular with walkers and cyclists and even I, not the keenest pedestrian it has to be said, enjoyed trotting down to the town, from where buses go regularly to Brighton and Eastbourne. I was dog tired at the end of each exhilarating day.

Seaford SunsetIt's a wonderful site for star gazing, dogs stay free of charge and as you can see, the sunsets can be incredible! More about this area next time and details of a great Club Site at which to stay in this area.

In the meantime, if you like to tweet as well as bark you can follow me on Twitter - Chatty Molly @mollyandted.
