Starting a blog is a little daunting but we would love to keep you up to date on life at Park Top Farm & the Caravan and Camping Site!
Summer is here and we have had some lovely weather and we have now planted up the site with some colourful geraniums which are definitely brightening things up.
On the way to the site from Richmond, you may spot some pink bales in the field! These are silage bales which are used to feed the cattle and sheep in the winter – some lucky campers where here in June when we gathered in the grass to make the bales and the weather was beautiful. The reason they are pink is to support the breast cancer now campaign by giving a donation with the pink wrap. It’s a really visible way to both raise awareness and funds for this cause and we think its a great idea.
Things are a little quieter at the moment for Ken, having led in the last of the barley straw which will be used to keep the cattle comfy in the winter months.
Its a lovely time of year here, with all the stock out in the fields enjoying the long days of summer and that goes for us as well. Chris is currently busy getting some crafty entries ready for our local show in Reeth. This takes place on August Bank Holiday Monday – 29th – and is a really lovely traditional dales show only 6 miles from the site and well worth a visit. You can get more details from their website: http://www.reethshow.co.uk
That’s all for now. Please do let us know if you would like us to continue to keep you up to date with things here, your feedback is much appreciated.
Spring is definitely here at Park Top, with beautiful sunshine and lambs. After a busy Easter we are getting ready for the Bank Holiday Weekend. We are full on Saturday and Sunday but still have some vacancies for Thursday and Friday.
With just under 3 weeks to go we are getting very excited here about the fabulous Tour De France coming to the area.
Here is Welcome to Yorkshire’s promotional video showing some of the great local areas through which it will pass.
We are only 6 miles from one of the best viewing points at Reeth and as roads will be closed in and around the area from very early on, you can stay here and cycle/walk without having to pay any additional car parking fees and after enjoying the spectacle and a bracing walk/ride home you could be sitting outside your tent/caravan with a nice glass of wine whilst others are still queing to leave the car park!
