sounds good to me, if there are B & B's near you have a choice if you want to camp or not, the earlier in the season the more chance of us having no other commitments.
Not sure when Easter is next year, thats probably best avoided, i'll put foward Sat 14th - Sun 15th April.

Brrrrrrrrrrrr but I'm in. If you want to B&B it they are not within walking distance in case you want to get tanked up...If we can have a show of hands from those who can genuinely commit to a weekend in April/early May then I'll get the ball rolling and see if we can book some adjacent pitches. I'll also look into some B&Bs for the er 'non hardy' amoungst us!!!

On a guess, the nearest B&B will be about 6 miles away maybe further as its a bit out in the sticks so maybe a few of the B&Bers could club together for a taxi..just so you know......I have made enquiries to the campsite in mind so will let you know. This is the website:

My sweaty palm is raised!!

Suspect I'll go the B&B route since I'm a soft southerner but if it's not too cold then I'll slum it!

Right,
I have found an alternative campsite which has caravans or lodges for rent for those who wanted the B&B option. That way there's no fussing with Taxi and people having to b*gger off etc.

They are open from easter which is April 8th.

As an aside, I found out how to determine the date for Easter:
1) Easter falls on the first Sunday following the first ecclesiastical full moon that occurs on or after the day of the vernal equinox;
2) this particular ecclesiastical full moon is the 14th day of a tabular lunation (new moon); and
3)the vernal equinox is fixed as March 21.

So now you know!!

In theory than, Arctics suggested date is ok, but it may be a tad chilly. There is however a pub just 200yrds away that serves a local Ale + girlie Larger!!! So, the bearded sandal wearing ale drinkers and the girlie lightweight lager lappers are all happy!!!

We have 2 happy campers and 2 non-hardy-types so far.
Think I'll put up a poll thingy....

Right dudes, there`s no party without me! What dates are we looking at please? Sod `er indoors, she probably won`t want to go but I fancy it. You all owe me a pint anyway (I haven`t thought of a reason yet but I will!) so it`ll be a cheap weekend anyhow.
Any good boozers nearby/on site?

Whoops, missed that. Thanks Tim! Family holidays and planned alcoholic binges aside I rather fancy that.
Hopefully I`ll have an estate by then (BX of course) but should I arrive in anything lesser I`ll park it out of the way!

Bandit, I`m a common or garden lodge type, I don`t do tents or mixing with the chattering classes, and I shall indeed be drinking lager.
I`d try a pint of Theakstons Old Knacker Sack (or whatever it`s called) but as I`m still the right side of 50, not overtly obese and I don`t do morris dancing I think I`ll stay well clear of it thanks :lol:
