Road Test for Jolly's Birthday

Whilst sunning ourselves in the lovely warmth of Sydney in January deciding what to do for Jolly's Birthday we thought that it would be a great chance to trial 'Penfold' and head off to the Lake District for the weekend.

Now we are both great believers that you should never let weather forecasts interfere with your plans, you should just adapt your clothing/equipment to suit, but as we headed off Friday afternoon in pouring rain and gale force winds I was starting to wonder if this was one of our better ideas.

Arriving at our campsite Sykeside Camping next to Brotherswater and near Ullswater my concerns were put to rest.  This is one of the few campsites that allows all year round camping and the facilities and staff are superb.  Our electric hook up pitch in the Camping and Carvanning Club area meant we were a quick dash away from the toilet facilities and pub on site serving scrummy food and good local beers yet still were able to enjoy the stunning views when there was a short break in the rain.
Penfold did us totally proud keeping us snug and cosy during the nights and enabling us to cook a lovely
 fry up in the dry and warmth on the Saturday
