Hideout Camping

The first stop of our three week holiday was only ever going to be an over-nighter to break up the journey from Derby to Cornwall. Not because I felt it was too far to travel in one stint, but more to do with the fact we wouldn’t be able to leave Derby until late afternoon due to a christening we were attending. We would usually choose to leave early morning but this was not an option. I felt that three hours drive would put us in a good location to be able to visit somewhere on the Monday before our firsts main stay of the holiday in Padstow.

Our search and subsequent booking was only done a few days previously. We chose Hideout Camping found on the Pitchup.com website. The location was great in in terms of distance, in Somerset just on the border or North Devon. The drive down was hassle free but wet…

As we approached the campsite at around 7pm I realized that the decision to not to attempt the drive to Padstow in one go was the right one. The day had been long and busy, and the campsite was a welcome break.

The weather wan’t fantastic, but I could live with that. Both Mandy and I knew we had a stress free three weeks in front of us. There was plenty of time for sun. For now we were just going to chill! Bed came early and before we knew it were were getting up for a coffee and a shower the following morning. The shower facilities were good, the pitches had electric hook up (not that we needed it) and the views of the surrounding countryside  were excellent.

It was a bit of a shame having to leave so soon, but we had to remind ourselves this was only ever going to be a stepping stone to greater things.

Next stop Bude…
