Little Hereford

Our journey was thankfully uneventful, taking us up the M5 and then across to the Bestparks site of Westbrook Park at Little Hereford just outside of Ludlow, one of five sites in the group. I was impressed. Its the little things that impress me the most such as a flexible pipe connected to the waste water drain that could be moved around to the correct position under the van to capture both outlets. This was a fully serviced pitch at its best. A level concrete pitch for the van next to chippings for the awning and then grass, situated behind a babbling brook. It cost £20 per night plus a £1 a night for woofer, very good value for money. We left the first Saturday of school holidays and the site was filling rapidly on our departure, and with only 3 toilets in he mens block I would have thought it might have struggled to cope with demand. There was a charge for the showers which is the first time we had come across such event. On a fully serviced pitch we use the shower in the van, which is a feature that has moved up my list of priorities in a van layout, probably now behind my number 1 of two fixed beds. Weather was indifferent all week neither one or the other with rain on the Friday, just after we had packed away the awning, thankfully. Places visited Shrewsbury, Wroxeter, Ludlow, Bridgnorth, and plenty of walking. Next trip our last one planned for the season and the only visit to a CC site in Tintagel with spectacular views. The only reason that we havent stayed on a CC site thus far is because of our (my) preference for fully serviced pitches, which I am more than happy to pay extra for. More please Caravan Club sites!
