We got up had breakfast and then finished packing up and just as we finished it started to rain initially the fine misty type and then as I was dropping the grey waste it came down much heavier. We drove a couple of miles down the road to the Tesco supermarket and fuelled up and left the fuel station at 10.15. We joined the A64 all the way to the A1 and then travelled south down the A1 and just before we turned off onto the A17 we stopped for coffee. During today’s journey we saw well over 100 caravans being towed but less than 20 motorhomes which seems to be the norm in the UK. We continued down the A17 to Holbeach, it was fairly busy but flowed freely all the way to Holbeach. We followed the sat nav a short way off the A17 and straight to the campsite Delph Bank.

This campsite is an absolute credit to the owners, neat manicured grass, large gravel pitches, spotless toilets complete with plugs, cloths for wiping the bowls out after use, nice liquid soap, smellie sticks and even a hair dryer in the gents. We thought that the best one we had ever been to was Briarfields in Cheltenham but Delph Bank has raised the bar even higher. We had a quiet evening in with just scrambled eggs with serrano ham on toast and then vanilla ice cream for pudding, a bit of a let down after yesterdays meal.
