CAT IN THE CAMPER

img_6276

Peaches had her first trip out in the camper today and I do believe she loved it. We drove to Deal and then parked up by the beach which was just over the road.

She soon found a couple of places to lay down and then she had a sleep. I went for a walk over to the beach and she was still asleep when I came back, I was not gone long as didn’t know how she would be.

It was a glorious sunny day today and hopefully we will have at least a week of good weather. Lots of fishermen on the beach today and even a couple of kids in the water, I bet it was cold though. The only problem with taking the cat you can’t have the door open which is a shame when sunny, the windows are ok as they all have screens. I did feel a bit strange just wild camping and think I would prefer to be on a site as there are not many places you can just wild camp and have room to put out your table and chairs.

Was nice to make a cup of tea and just chill, I should have taken my laptop then could have done some writing. At least I know the cat is ok in the camper if I want to take her anywhere again.

Was a nice day out and better than sitting indoors. What do you do if you take your cat with you on your travels?

 

REVIEW – KINGSDOWN CAMPING PARK

I will be doing reviews about all the parks I go to in the camper and they will be under park reviews on my blog and website.

Location of this park is by a lane so no big campers are allowed on to park but it was ok for me to drive up, I didn’t pass anyone coming the other way so that was good as I haven’t got my reversing camera yet.

The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, even coming down to my van to show me how to get the water hot and checking the fridge.  I first parked on a bit of a slope and the fridge has to be level to work.  They showed us where the footpath was to get to the village which is about 5 minutes away, it took me a bit longer though.

The showers are a decent size with hooks so nothing gets wet, I find that very annoying. There is not a seat or bench in the showers which made it a bit difficult for me but it was very warm so I was only putting on shorts and a top. You can use the fixed hairdryer for 50p which would be good in the colder months.  There are plenty of toilets which are cleaned regularly during the day, also a good size if your taking toddlers to the toilet.

Most of the park has a sea view and you can drive round and park where ever you want also put up a couple of tents if needed as there is no restriction on space you take up.

There are a few things for sale in the booking-in area, ice creams and basic camping needs but you can drive for about 10 minutes to the huge Tesco store which sells just about everything.

As you can see we had a few tents up as one was the kitchen and the children had their own tents.

I would recommend this park to everyone as could find NO faults with it at all so it gets a huge 10/10 plus a gold star!

I loved waking up to this view every morning.
