UK woodland site we do have a few hide aways.

These were taken at a club site near Chichester called Graffham south coast UK.
The first one is of my french CGI Cabanon Andorra cotton frame tent with a polycotten breathable tarp over the top and a poly cotton green tarp to make a canopy and two see through panels made from Heavy duty tent window material to keep the cold winds at bay,the camp was in mid October day time temperatures around 10Deg 'C' nights hovered around freezing .But we did have 16 amps of Electric to heat the tent. Well we are approaching 70 years old and the blood is thin :grin:

This one is of my other Cabanon tent in summer the big tarp now is set up to keep the rain off,we were on the Yorkshire Dales for 17 days and it rained 14 out of the 17 but with this set up we could still BBQ and eat Alfresco Image

This is one of me Roasting Chestnuts on the BBQ [GAS] only allowed :evil: but does keep the chill off Image

No it's just a heater, although one woman did refer to it as a big toaster on a trip away once :$

The dog is Honey, we have 2 that come away with us, better behaved than most children we encounter, we are off camping again this weekend, there will be about 11 or 12 vehicles coming, it's a combined birthday/Xmas and Forum gathering.

As soon as we walked into the cabin we could smell the beautiful wood, this being a solid wood cabin made from logs shipped in from Poland. And there in the living room was the log burner we were looking forward to sitting in front of. The cabin put me very much in mind of a child’s play house, particularly with the pretty tablecloth and embroidered bed linen. I felt very much like I was playing house as I lit the fire and cooked at the stove. We did a lot of cooking, which I’ll tell you about in another post.
