🚐 Ludlow Bound 🚐

Yay, we finally made it away for a few days of adventure in our motorhome 🙂

With the ongoing health issues plaguing taid atm we diddn’t want to stray too far from home so we decided a quick trip to Shropshire would be a good option. With a relatively quick amount of research complete the result saw us booked onto the morris leisure site at Ludlow ( with cmhc discount ) for the first time with the many good reviews tipping the balance in its favour.

We set off mid morning via a quick trip to a supermarket to collect provisions to stock up the food cupboard and fridge then onward to collect the moho from our secure storage. After completing some post winter checks off we set towards Ludlow on the A5 / A49 which turned out to be an easy stress free drive with no issues en route, we arrived mid afternoon to find the park, facilities and staff to be absolutely first class and we were quickly set up in the adults only area on a massive fully serviced pitch.

Our first day was then spent mainly setting up the moho after the winter break followed by a chilled evening watching netflix on tv.

Day two saw us walk into the beautiful market town of Ludlow ( 2 miles away ) followed by a walk around the lovely outdoor market before visiting the fantastic Ludlow castle which is highly recommended and has a huge bonus of being very dog friendly. The oldest parts of the castle date back to 1086 with many later 12c and 15c additions/modifications to the original fortress, the castle has played many significant roles during its time including seeing the norman conquest, the creation of the magna carta, the 100 years war and the war of the roses among others. The remains of the chapel and the access to the towers are highlights, The view from the top of the great tower is well worth the climb.

Sightseeing complete and the walk back to the camp done ( their is a bus service but Eve loves the walks ) via another few laps of the first class dog walking area onsite it was back to the moho for a well earned tea followed by tv, wine and bed for mum & dad.

Day three started very wet and windy with us all hiding away snug in the moho chilling to the radio, lunch was followed with the decision made to head up to Mortimer Forest ( 1 mile from site ) and to do some walking on the multi-use forest trails. What a good decision that was with us doing a fantastic meandering walk of six miles up through Mortimer Forest and onto Climbing Jack Common before returning back via the beautiful Mary Knoll Valley.

Eve always loves forest walks but she was especially happy to find the high open ground of jack common where lots of rabbit hunting and countless zoomies were completed.

Once back at the moho the weather once again closed in so it was yet another relaxed evening of tv and netflix, A frosty night ensued but thanks to our new small oil raidiator keeping the moho toasty we hardly noticed.

Day four saw us sad to head home from this mini pre Easter break but needs must and we are certain it will not be long before we are back out on our next adventure.
