Mixed blessings.  On the face of it good news for those wanting a holiday and those needing to earn money through the summer season to service ongoing bank loans and overheads.  Personally though, with a wife working in a care home and knowing people are dying of Covid 19, in a care home just a few miles away, I have my reservations about the apparent normality that we are returning to in many areas of life. 


Let's just hope the new government rules, people's common sense and warm dry weather are enough to prevent another peak.

I think that pubs and hotels are a far greater danger than camping or staying in a self catering house, personally.

Karl we want a sunset view, a sunrise view, a flat pitch near a water source, great views (ideally 360) and sheltered from the wind. Get planning  :D And bring your own gas and alcohol.  O0

Really! I live next door to a holiday let which sleeps 11 people but advertise they can accommodate 15, (they provide extra mattresses to put on the floor).  It's usual to see several groups of people swapping over the rental period and it's obvious that they don't belong to the same family group(s).  The usual change over day is Friday  (with a four to five hour turnaround) when the cleaning company 'spruce' up the property.  I think their staff must have been trained at the Barrow Shipyard cleaning portholes because they spend most of their time smoking and chatting in the garden or on the front doorstep.  There's been a number of the times when new guests have had to contact the letting agent to complain that the house has not been cleaned properly.  How could anybody put their trust in such unsupervised practices?  NB - The same company was observed dashing around Cartmel today to get the numerous holiday lets there ready for the big day.  - CAVEAT EMPTOR!!

Hmm - I wouldn't be quite so happy with self catering in those circumstances, Brandywell!


My thoughts are turning to the remote cottage that we had booked in Snowdonia for 6 nights before Easter. Think that we will wait until Autumn.
