    Any recommendations for a quiet last-minute spot away from the masses this bank holiday?

    A tall order, I know, but for the April one we got lucky and had the grounds of a Georgian pile all to ourselves for a tenner a night.

    The North / Midlands / Norfolk / Suffolk. No facilities necessary. Anywhere nice and quiet considered ...

    You could have a look on here:

    https://nearlywildcamping.org

    I have not tried it but have heard some good things - I guess it'll depend on where you go tho.

    Cool camping used to be good but i've found that these days everyone knows about it so they tend to be busy and expensive, plus the criteria of a 'Cool Camping site' seems to have been lowered over the last few years so its now more 'OK'ish camping'.

    I have come across that one but I just can't bring myself to pay for websites (except this one, of course). Wouldn't mind having a look at it though.

    I've had a good run lately with certificated sites, pubs with pitches and even a couple of private gems on Airbnb. Maybe we should start a list/thread on here as a resource.

    Thanks Higgy - on that list now. I’ve always associated Masham with Black Sheep beers. Googled it and came up with this. Interesting.

    https://www.yorkshireeveningpost.co...heep-brewery-masham-north-yorkshire-1-4278171

    ‘Neither brewery owns pubs – actually Theakston’s do have one, the White Bear, cheek-by-jowl to the Black Sheep site – so on many bars across North Yorkshire, the rival products compete head-to-head. “Masham folk tend to drink either Theakston Best or Black Sheep Bitter,” one local tells me. The stronger beers – Old Peculier and Riggwelter – are “mostly for the tourists.”’

    I first went there in the late 70s .. I would go with my brother in law in his old ERF. to deliver the Malt... we would hand ball it off (Hessian sacks)..... Then have a pint of 'Grunt futtocks' Old Deridgerble'. Or what ever it was called.... For 'me' Pay..
