Pitch 23 - Exmoor House
River Barle, near Dulverton
The forecast for Sunday was rain, so we popped the Cali topper on and wound the awning in before going to bed. So glad we did as Sunday was very wet. We had a short walk around Dulverton and headed back to Cali when it started to rain quite heavy. We had often wondered how we would get wet clothes dry in such a small space, but it wasn't a problem. Wet boots were put on newspaper on the floor behind the nearside seat, trousers were hung over a cord fixed between two hooks in the roof area at the front and wet coats hung over the seat headrests and dripped onto newspaper.
The K9 tent has also stayed dry and is great for storage - it raised a few smiles on the site when people asked us what sort of dog we have!
We had a lazy start to the Bank Holiday Monday morning and then decided to head home and get everything dry. We've had a great first weekend away and have made a list of a few things we want to get before our next trip - mainly a few bags to keep things tidy.
The site was lovely with friendly wardens and excellent facilities. There's lots of walking in the area and also local buses that go through the town, although not too many each day. I'm sure this will become one of our weekend sites.
