Caravanning At Compton Farm
Literally the day the campsites opened, we took our caravan out (thanks to my brother who towed it there). I have really missed getting out in it even though we have been caravanning outside our house during lockdown.
Our favourite place in the world is Compton Farm, right here on the Isle of Wight. You can find lots of posts on the blog about this very same campsite. *disclaimer, caravans are not allowed in the tent field, we have special dispensation as it is smaller than most cars.
The kids love it, and we kept it here for two weeks whilst we to and fro-ed from our house now and again to restock supplies. We had all the weather Britain could throw at us, gale force storms, baking hot sun and torrential downpours. It all adds the the charm (not at the time) of a memorable camping trip.
Here are lots of photos of our time spent there this month, it is a very photogenic place with such good light.
The kids loved staying up to watch the bats whilst drinking hot chocolate.
They didn't want to leave at all!
Whilst all the world is in utter chaos, and home life is in a state of limbo, this really did help so much to come here. I will be on more camping adventures with the kids again soon...I'm planning a little tent camping, squishing everything into my tiny car!
...p.s. my new little jewellery company is just two weeks away from lift off! It's been a labour of love, really enjoyable and I do hope you will like what I have been up to. You can follow Only Through Shadows over on instagram in the mean time, and I will put a post here when I launch the online shop.
