Today marks the start of another mini-series of posts that I’ll be making, based around my week long holiday at the Pinewoods holiday park near Wells-Next-The-Sea.
We arrived in Wells at about 2pm today, just as we received a text from the owner to say that our caravan was ready. We were expecting the van to be nice, based on the number of requests the owner had made not to eat in the living room, take shoes on the mat and so on! It exceeded our expectations though; the van was spotlessly clean (I even ran my fingers over the tops of cupboards!), comes with a number of nice extras (intruder alarm, ipod dock, 3 TV’s, DVD players, DVD’s, books and pretty much every kitchen utensil you could possibly need!), and is situated on the edge of the park in a lovely quiet area. We’ve heard virtual no noise from anyone on this side of the site.
After a quick snack, we set of for a stroll along the beach, which is about a 30 second walk from the park. The beach is massive, and is “proper” beach; nice fine sand with relatively clean sea water. The lack of any real litter is also a nice surprise.
Tomorrow morning, weather permitting, we’ll be up for an early morning stroll along the sea front, followed by a stroll into Wells for a look around. More info (and better photos!) to follow…
