Friday 10th-Sunday 12th December 2021
We have spent the weekend at Willows Camping Park Nantwich, we were last here in July 2020 just after lock down restrictions were lifted. We met up as usual with motorhoming buddies Peter and Alison with a special reason as it was Peter’s 65th birthday on Saturday.
The weather was very wet on our arrival and the fields and roads around the site were very wet, thankfully on this well maintained site everything was fine with our pitches being on hard standing with water and electrics on each pitch. Friday night was a drinks and catch up on news evening.
Our plan for Saturday was to take a taxi into Nantwich where I had booked a table for lunch at The Vine Inn. Sadly after phoning every taxi company in the region I couldn’t get a taxi soPlan B had to come into force, we packed away things in Homer and headed for Nantwich. Every car park was rammed and fitting Homer on would have been difficult so we went back out of town and parked next to the lake. We walked back into Nantwich, it was raining heavily and so wasn’t all that pleasant, the town was being serenaded by Christmas music and there was an outdoor market selling gifts/ craft presents.
At 1 pm we were in the pub which was warm and welcoming and very dog friendly, water and biscuits provided. The meal once ordered was slow in arriving as they were somewhat busy, however the beer was very good, unfortunately there was a tv showing the Liverpool v Wolves match where Wolves lost 1-0 to a controversial penalty.
We followed lunch with another walk around the shops purchasing a few items.
During the evening we joined Peter and Alison where we enjoyed a bottle of fizzy 🥂 and other drinks plus a lovely cake cooked and provided by Alison, who bakes exceedingly good cakes😊
Sunday was drier and far more pleasant and as we often do whilst in this area we visited Dagfields Antique Centre where we bought a few glasses and a piece of Poole pottery.
