18th-19th May Sandringham

Having heard so much about both club sites set in the Sandringham Estate, we decided to add it to our destinations to tick off on this trip away.

We chose to visit the CCC site which was very badly signposted, just a rickety old sign that seemed to point nowhere. The only reason we found the site was because we are now experts in scanning the surrounding area, and can spot a tiny sign a mile away!

The staff were very welcoming and took us to our pitch, and they couldn’t have been more helpful in giving us advice on walking routes.  However, we were disappointed with the site and the Estate.

Maybe we had built up the area in our minds (based on other people’s opinions) only to be let down when we got there.  It is supposed to be one of the CCC’s flagship sites, but we have seen better.



About Dean

Angela and I decided that there was more to life than working hard to keep up the payments on the mortgage, to pay the gas, electric, phone bills etc. etc. SO............ In 2008 we sold our house, I initially took a year off (Unpaid) and Angela handed in her notice! We bought a motorhome and set off for a year of travelling! This was the best thing we had done in our lives (Apart from getting married) and we have no regrets. During the year I managed to secure a redundancy package which felt very strange. Almost sad as I had worked for the same company for 19 years (BT). It was always our plan to have a whole year off before thinking about the 'W' word. We began applying to the Camping and Caravanning Club (CCC) for the position of Holiday site assistants in August 2009. After the interview, work experience and induction we were finally given a contract at the CCC site in Inverewe (Scotland). Our plan is to work through the summer in the UK then head to Europe to overwinter before coming back to work the following summer season. Hopefully these few words and our blog will inspire others to get off the hamsters wheel and see that there is more to live than having a house and material things. A cliche I know but this is not a rehearsal, life is too short!!! Since our first contract in Scotland we have worked a winter contract in Oxford (never again!) not Oxford but a winter contract. Hereford for two years, living in a yurt for one! And Cornwall. In between our working we have also travelled a bit. Hopefully this website will give you an insight into our alternative lifestyle. Get out there and live the dream!
