A wonderful weekend

We have just spend a wonderful weekend in South Wales.

We stayed on a new to us campsite

Nicholaston Farm

As always I was rather nervous wondering if it was as nice as the website and the reviews said.

All I can say is that it was so much better.

From the first contact at the reception we were made to feel welcome on the site. They helped set us up near to the bathrooms so it would make life a little easier for us with our special needs child.

The site itself is immaculate and honestly the showers were better than the ones we have had home.

The views that surround the site are fantastic.

They have an onsite shop with fresh vegetables and fruit and a load of other goodies. The prices are also really reasonable which surprised me as one of my bug bears of campsite shops is the increase in prices. They even have their own pick your own fields, where you can spend some quality family time picking strawberries and other fruits.

The site also has its own cafe which serves a beautiful full breakfast oh and good coffee, really good coffee.

We had such a wonderful weekend that we have booked to stay for longer in August.

So seriously if you are looking for a campsite in Gower check out Nicholaston Farm as it is truly a first class site.

I love the Gower it is simply one of the most beautiful places I have ever been.

I can’t wait to go back.

•All photos from the Nicholaston Farm website, I was chasing after the kids all weekend so didn’t get chance to take any decent photos. Next time…..

 

No more school

So that’s it, it is now officially the school holidays. Every child is happy that for the next 6 weeks they have no stress or wake ups for school.

I’m actually feeling positive about the coming weeks.

Of course it’s all helped by the holidays we have booked. This weekend we are off to sunny (it better be) South Wales the beautiful Gower. I can not wait.

To be truthful when we first brought the touring caravan I did wonder if we would actually use it but it has been amazing. Our foster son especially loves it and being a constant it really helps with autistic stresses.

We have certainly had our monies worth out of it and there is nothing better than sitting in a field, campsite and watching the night sky.

I love it.

The only thing that stresses me out is cooking for us all when we are away. With a family of six eating out everyday is not viable.

We do have an oven in the caravan but its only tiny and my kids like their food.

We are considering one of those Cadac portable BBQ.

What do you guys think?

Have you used one?

Are they any good?

I’m also after some camping cooking recipes a if anyone has any good ones.

I am super excited, yes packing is tiring but I cannot wait to escape onto the beautiful beaches of the Gower.

Bring on the weekend.

Lets make more memories just like this one.
