Tewkesbury GL20, UK


Day 1 - A few months back Me, Sean and a few family members decided to go on a camping weekend. I'd never been camping before so I was excited but slightly nervous as I didnt know what to expect. We drove down on the friday night after we had all finished work. By the time we arrived at our camp (just outside Tewksbury) the sun was setting and it was time to grab some grub. We set up a little BBQ and bought some meat from the owner of the camp. We cooked our burgers, had a little drinky and then me and Sean went on a little midnight walk.

Day 2 - The next morning we woke up mildly refreshed after our less than comfortable night on the blow up beds. We decided to head to a couple of local national trust properties as we weren't really sure what to do and we are all new members. 

Our first stop was at a a huge roman villa. I cant remember what it was called but it was literally in the middle of nowhere. There wasn't really all that much to look at and honestly the tour was too boring for words so we headed off to look for the next property. The next place we arrived at was a small country estate which I've just realized I didn't take any photos of. There didn't seem to be much here either really. We decided to head back to the camp and grab some more BBQ stuff on the way home. Me and Sean also picked up a couple of adult colouring books and spent a few hours working on those while we waited for the fire to heat up. 
It was then time for BBQ number 2 and a little walk over the fields before turning in for the night.

Day 3 - This was our last day. We woke up, made some bacon baps and started to pack the tent up. This was the only day we had actually planned and the day I was most looking forward to. A few months back we had decided to go to Tewkesbury Medieval Festival. We went last year and really enjoyed it so we wanted to go back and take Sean with us this time. If you've never heard about the festival I wrote a little post on it last year, you can read that here.

It was a really good day, the best part easily being the huge battle reenactment. We all went for a meal at the local Wetherspoons (obviously) and headed back home.

I really enjoyed the whole weekend and I would love to go camping again next year. I've love to hear your camping tips/ favorite places to camp in the UK!

Thanks for reading!

  3. Aww so cool you went on your first camping trip! Midnight walks are always magical, such a sweet thing to do and BBQ food is always delicious, even more so round a campfire right?! The camp looks so peaceful and chill, exactly what you want when you go off for a get-away trip! I've never been camping but I always love the sound of late night fires and food :) Such gorgeous photos Grace, you've really captured the essence of your trip perfectly! The medieval festival looks like such an amazing day out too. And before I forget, I absolutely LOVE your sparking bag, what a beauty! <3
