Homer isn’t good at speed, well 0-60mph in about 10 mins if there’s a good wind blowing, he hates long slow inclines and steep hills even more. Today on route was the notorious “Fish Hill”outside Broadway in the Cotswolds, there are two lanes on the upward stretch to allow for slow vehicles, we had to travel up in second gear, took a while, could have eaten a nice cheese sandwich whilst ascending, never mind we made it in the end.
We had a free one night voucher for a Caravan and Motorhome Site so we decided to head here to Moreton in Marsh, only 55 miles from home and a gentle 90 minute ride, it was Layla’s first outing in Homer so we didn’t want to go too far, she behaved superbly staying in her bed between our seats the whole way.
This is a very pleasant site, it takes 184 units but there is plenty of space and I don’t feel it would seem crowded if full, the facilities are excellent and the wardens very helpful and welcoming. Off the edge of the site there is a children’s play area and a dog walking field, we took the opportunity for the first time to let Layla off her lead and run free, as there were no other dogs to distract her she came back every time she was called.
