Dubs in’t Dales 2015

By |October 11th, 2015|Blog|Comments Off on Dubs in’t Dales 2015

This is the only VW Festival Julie and I have attended this year and it is Julies favourite.

I love the event as well but being held late in September it does have a slight undertone of melancholia, as the VDubbers are becoming acutely aware that the season of happiness is coming to an end and […]

Camping at Hooks House Farm in Robin Hoods Bay

By |August 31st, 2015|Blog|Comments Off on Camping at Hooks House Farm in Robin Hoods Bay

This blog should have been written months ago, when the camping trip to Robin Hoods Bay was fresh in my mind, but not to worry I have photos to remind me along the way.

Actually, I think I will just add photos and talk about what comes back to me when looking at them.

Brockwell Wood Wild Camping North East

IMPORTANT NOTE: Brockwell Wood is not mine (as much as I would love it!) this blog is just my recommendation and experience when I went. To book you need to contact them via their web-site: (best to email as its a working farm) 

It’s not often as an adult that you get that childlike rush of […]

Before reading this blog, just a quick note to say we have now done an up-dated blog using data from 2016 and 2017, which can be viewed here

Over the last 6 years since Canny Campers was established, we have done hundreds of weddings and the occasional retirement or anniversary.
This got me thinking!
I wonder which wedding […]

The Railway Inn Acklington Campsite Review

By |May 29th, 2015|Blog|Comments Off on The Railway Inn Acklington Campsite Review

If you read my last camping blog when we stayed on a site near Hadrian’s Wall  you may recall me saying that I prefer a campsite with a pub close by, and being disappointed that that site did not have that.

During that previous camping trip, myself and Julie met a couple in Brampton who were […]

First Camping trip to Hadrian’s Wall

By |April 16th, 2015|Blog|Comments Off on First Camping trip to Hadrian’s Wall

I was really looking forward to my first camping trip of 2015 and this year we started our camping adventures at Hadrian’s Wall Campsite, arriving in the early afternoon.

The campsite has some really good features, it is secluded and quite for starters but what I really like are the pitches and more specifically the views. Unlike […]

Little Joe’s 2015 Make Over

By |March 24th, 2015|Blog|Comments Off on Little Joe’s 2015 Make Over

As our 2014 wedding season came to a close, not only was it time to reflect on a successful season, in fact our busiest yet. It was also the time to get our cars back up to scratch for the 2015 Brides and Grooms.

To this end I would like to thank all of those Brides and […]

‘Little Joe’ Camping at Largs in Scotland

By |October 28th, 2014|Blog|0 Comments

Is Largs in Scotland very popular? Largs is a seaside town on the Firth of Clyde in North Ayrshire, about 33 miles from Glasgow.  I must admit I have not heard of 1 person who has been from my small pocket of friends and acquaintances. I stumbled across Largs years ago, when for a birthday we stayed in […]

VW Festival Life
This was a sneaky unexpected holiday, I checked my e-mails and one stood out, it was a Facebook invite advertising Dubs Int Dales VW festival. It was a must do as we had no weddings that weekend and it was only an hour’s drive from home. The festival was held at Camp Katur […]

Bushcraft Courses | Survival Training | Wilderness Skills at Kirkley Hall

By |September 8th, 2014|Blog|0 Comments

If you’re like me you will have seen The Island with Bear Grylls and thought, I wouldn’t last 5 minutes if they plopped me in that situation. I would end up being surplus to requirements and no doubt eaten by the rest of the group.

After the series had finished I went to the woods, dragging […]
