I'm very impressed with you campers. I'm taking loads of layers for staying in the caravan!

Crockedpot it does smile if you stay in a B&B, too fecking cold for camping

We are still debating... The weather has suddenly turned much colder, but I think two or three nights, farm camp site with a pub within walking distance, or a beach to walk on all wrapped up sounds fabulous....

That, I could cope with, sophie. In fact I'm rather jealous as I'd love to go away at half term; we didn't get a summer holiday.

We are, but in our caravan. Does that count?!

Oh and I left my ex 2 weeks later. I'd already decided I was going before the camping break but a cold wet weekend didn't help me warm to him!

Sorry ... too negative. You never know the weather may be brilliant. Where are you going?

Oh god you've just brought my last october half term camping experience back to me! It was 2009 and we got absolutely covered head to toe in mud and rain. Everything got thrown in the boot as was and when we finally got a dry weekend we had to pitch the tent, mop the mud out of it, clean it inside and out (every inch seemed to be muddy), and then re-waterproof it. It also took me weeks to wash and dry all the clothes, bedding, towels, etc. Nightmare!

I swore no more October half term camping and so far I've stuck to it. Hideous it was, HIDEOUS!

Thermals, waterproofs, strong tent, plenty to keep kids occupied and wine? wink

We are going! I'm a little bit scared though blush

I'm far too a fair-weather-camper for half term, unless we have an Indian summer. I'm freezing already!

Or is it just too cold? I really want to go....
