My family have been camping in the same field for over 40 years now
we always go for the August bank holiday
I have such fond memories of going there as a child :)
we used to play in the river all day, collect fire wood, go for walks or go apple/plum picking
then in the night we'd all sit around a huge campfire, toast marshmallows and sing, mostly Welsh rugby songs :)
It is a tradition that I am so pleased to be able to share with my daughters :)
So every August bank holiday you will find us in a little village called Hoarwithy near Ross on Wye

Now above you may have noticed i said field not campsite that is because this is proper camping :) Just a field with a tap at the top, you have to bring everything!
This fills most people with horror until I say that no toilets/showers means no roads so i know my kids are safe :)
The drip that I am lol means i forgot to take a picture of the tent!! i know!!
(I will take one when we go for the bank holiday in a few weeks!)
Anyway back to my favourite field :)
What more could you want? :)

So it's the school holidays and the kids are getting restless!
It was such a lovely day so we went for a walk to look for fairies
I live in Cwmcarn which has the wonderful Forest Drive with miles of walks over a beautiful mountain
The view up the valley :)
This Tree and ferns looked so pretty!
We didn't find any fairies :(
But Looking at these you could almost believe they were there hiding :)
The kids certainly believed they were there.............somewhere :)
They had lots of fun looking!
We did find some fariytale looking mushrooms
Lots of fun! and it didn't cost a thing :)
