  1. Wow well done you! I used to love mountain trips and overnight camping but a full holiday with the kids is a different level thanks for sharing! #countrykids

    What a wonderful experience for you all, I’ve never liked camping myself, I know Farmer Amber loves it though. You really did manage what looks like a perfect family holiday, who doesn’t love a short walk to the beach straight from their bed? I bet Rich loved watching the girls become close friends with his friends son, I’m sure it will be a long lasting generational friendship! The smiles on all the faces in every photo proves how much fun you all had.

    Thanks for sharing with me on #CountryKids.

  3. Sounds like you all had a great experience in a wonderful area. Have to be honest, I can do glamping, but not full on camping #Countrykids

  4. I’ve not caped since I was a guide, so never as an adult. On the one hand I do fancy it but on the other it just seems a lot of expense and hassle. So glad you enjoyed it, the area looks beautiful. Mich x #CountryKids

  5. How wonderful that you were able to spend this quality time with family and friends and that you were able to enjoy your first camping holiday (despite the occasional drizzle 😉 ). Nicholaston Burrows beach looks absolutely incredible – living in landlocked Luxembourg I yearn for impromptu visits to beaches like that…

    Camping can have its ups and downs… but is almost always worth it. Hope you enjoy another camping adventure soon! #CountryKids

    Glad to hear you’ve been converted. For us, it’s the other way round. My OH will not camp, even though we go with farming friends – mostly the mums and kids, but a couple of the men have tried it.

    We were in the Gower camping at the start of the holidays – we didn’t see as much in the Mumbles but it seemed really nice. Camping is great as long as you’ve got the all mod cons of electric hook up and good shower/loo blocks. #countrykids

  7. Sounds like you had a fabulous time. I would love to go camping again. I have not been since before the boys were born. We used to love Warren Farm in Brean years ago. There is also a good campsite by St Ives too. #CountryKids

    Yey!! I’m so glad you enjoyed it Karen, I’d really hoped you would and it sounds like you’ve discovered all the best bits about camping! I love the way you’re outdoors so much and spend together much more, it’s just such a great way to get away with kids. Ours always sleep quite well too, even though they’re going to bed much later after the first night or two they do lie in a little. We loved France this year but I’m hoping to do some more in Britain next year, just a shame we don’t get the same sun! xx

  9. Sounds like a successful camping trip! We love camping and find that we all sleep well too! So happy for you guys and here’s to more camping adventures! #CountryKids

  10. My husband converted me to camping and now some of our best memories, before and after kids, are camping holidays. So glad you enjoyed it! #CountryKids

    Ahh I’ve been wanting to start camping – we’ve done way too much glamping. It’s funny, I’d never have thought to go there but it looks fantastic from your pictures. My godfather died earlier this year and was living in Pen-clawdd which is nearby – and my husband and I were loving the views from there and could understand why he left London and had his final years there. It’s a wonderful area, and I’ve got the campsite bookmarked now #countrykids

  12. I have to confess that I’m not a fan of camping, despite having done it a few times (pre-kids). So glad you had such a lovely time though – maybe there’s hope yet that I’ll be converted myself! The beach looks amazing and how lovely to get to see the Perseid meteor shower too. Glad to hear that you all slept so well as well 🙂 #countrykids

  13. how lovely it all went so well for you, and amazing you got so much quality sleep. I always woke up with a sore back if I got any sleep at all.
    You seem to have packed a lot in and met some new friends as well. #countrykids

  14. This campsite sounds brilliant! I’m so pleased that you’re a camping convert, and I hope that you have many more enjoyable family camping trips.
