Strange sights on a strange site......

Post by repoort on Mon Oct 02, 2017 9:14 pm

....nowadays it's quite normal to share sites with static caravans, wooden lodges, glamping pods, shepherds huts - but for alternate holiday accommodation, this takes some beating......our adjacent pitch was this - 






....not strange enough ? how about.....laundry !
What's strange about laundry, a lot of sites provide some washing and drying facilities...usually unobtrusive, in a room...like, normal....

                                                               Not here.....how about this -  








...other facilities were a mad mixture of Madmax/Steampunk/Uncle Toms Cabin - though there were some "normal" recognisable washrooms.
The site ? www.windmillcampersite.com,  Froglands, Isle of Wight
And there was also an amazing junkyard/scrapyard/reclamation/antiques place there....
Certainly a refreshing alternative to big bland sites.

That looks interesting. I love the Isle of Wight. Must put it on the list.

Brilliant! This at our bike rally in Scotland earlier this year. The site also has glamping pods.

...it's called the Windmillcampersite for a very good reason......it is really suitable for campervans, I wouldn't want to take a coachbuilt down the narrow lane where the site is, then there is an incline from the farm up to the site.
Incidentally, even with booking through the CC (which I will still call it), the ferry crossing (Lym/Yarmouth) was £88 - compared with my favourite ferries (Calmac) it was a very high £ per mile (or nautical mile).

...sorry for causing all this confusion !
It's like waiting for a bus - no helicopters on the forum for years, then two turn up at the same time....

There must be a demand, the owners at the Scottish site said the Sea King was fully booked up for the summer season, despite it being on the expensive side at £150 for one night.

....our neighbour was £350 to £495 for three nights, a bit more than a shepherds hut, although a more unique experience. 
Didn't have the AS quality, of course.

VERY NICE, would love another bike especially one of those. Last bike was a Yamaha FZR1000 until someone tried to knock me off it!!, when I got home I chucked the keys on the table and said "Thats It with bikes", ended up with a Triumph 13/60 convertible so we could take the kids with us.

You should get yourself another bike Chris! I now have a total of 6 after purchasing an Aprilia 850 last week to celebrate achieving the milestone of passing the age at which my father passed away..
