A weekend Camp at Catgill Campsite Bolton Abbey

By |October 9th, 2018|Blog|Comments Off on A weekend Camp at Catgill Campsite Bolton Abbey

Canny Campers HQ has been a strange one this year, we have experienced the busiest season ever but the weddings have been grouped together in such a way that still allows the odd weekend off, which is nice.

October is very quiet so Julie and I have taken the opportunity to use ‘Little Joe’ again as […]

Little Joe’s Full Interior Makeover 2018

By |February 9th, 2018|Blog|Comments Off on Little Joe’s Full Interior Makeover 2018

Little Joe the campervan has always had a split personality. On the one hand he is a home on wheels, loved and used as my personal campervan. On the other hand and let’s be honest due to massive popularity he is mainly a wedding bus, and in my opinion the best wedding bus!

Ever since taking […]

I have been meaning to do an updated version of a blog I wrote a couple of years ago, looking at the top places brides and grooms (probably just brides!) choose for the big day reception celebrations and even the wedding itself. I have finally got round to looking at the data.

Camping near Bellingham Northumberland Boe Rigg

By |February 20th, 2017|Blog|Comments Off on Camping near Bellingham Northumberland Boe Rigg

It’s always a fist pump moment for me when I ring a campsite that’s not yet open and they say “come and stay anyway” and that was the tone for our holiday at the friendly Boe Rigg campsite.

We were only heading up for 1 night, at this time of the year desperation sets in to […]
