Disney Day!

We had our quiet and peaceful night in Malham, it was now time to turn it around and head off out for Disney on Ice in Leeds and mix things up a little. Personally, I think it was a well balanced weekend! When it came to finding a camp spot, we had a quick look … Continue reading Disney Day!

Harry and Hermoine definitely got a helicopter lift up here….

I’m aware we’ve been a little bit quiet recently at Little Vanventures but its only because we’ve been busy having so much fun and now it’s time to report to you what mischief we have gotten ourselves into these past few weekends, starting with Malham Cove and Leeds. Tom bought me tickets for Disney on … Continue reading Harry and Hermoine definitely got a helicopter lift up here….

This Place is a SHAMBLES!!

Well, not quite. You'll see what I mean... York still remains one of my favourite places in the UK to visit. It really does have absolutely everything for everyone. We only had a short weekend here but it was exactly what we needed, night-life, beautiful buildings and good shops. I feel like every time I … Continue reading This Place is a SHAMBLES!!

Loch Ettrick – Dumfries and Galloway

Have you ever been so remote that someone in a 4x4 has pulled over and asked you if you’re alright? We have. I can only assume that he thought we had broken down, with no signal to call for help so we had lit a fire to keep ourselves warm whilst we waited for some … Continue reading Loch Ettrick – Dumfries and Galloway

Castle on the hill… (Dunure)

We were supposed to go to Ayr and camp near the beach, in reality that was harder than it seemed. When we arrived, we couldn't see any parking signs for the beach front however every carpark had height restrictions and also signs saying no over night camping so it didn't fill us with confidence that … Continue reading Castle on the hill… (Dunure)

Please, leave me as you found me.

Well, not quite me, but these lovely camp spots we are having the pleasure of sharing with you. It's really important for us that we leave places as we find them when we have been wild camping as not to ruin it for the next person or to tarnish the name of campers/caravanners/vanners. We have … Continue reading Please, leave me as you found me.

As if by magic…(Stirling and Aviemore)

As if by magic, we got to this point. Little vanventures has scored '32' on the scrabble board. Now, there's a whole lotta travelling to go through, before we actually get to be sitting here, at The Old Bridge Inn, starting with... Our first stop was Stirling, we found a small off grid carpark on … Continue reading As if by magic…(Stirling and Aviemore)

Lake District – Windermere (Red Nab)

This is another fairly local stop off point for us. This particular evening, Tom had been working twilight shift so didn’t finish until 6. Being the very kind girlfriend that I am and the fact I had just recently been insured on Tom's van, I offered to drive. Mainly out of curiosity to see what … Continue reading Lake District – Windermere (Red Nab)

West Yorkshire – Whernside and the Ribblehead Viaduct

Now, this spot is a little closer to home for us which makes it the perfect spot to disappear to when we only have one night spare. Why waste a night sitting at home when you can be in a van somewhere completely random?! This particular night, we had just been to a friends Halloween leaving … Continue reading West Yorkshire – Whernside and the Ribblehead Viaduct

Wales – Abersoch (Hells Mouth- Pwllheli)

I was introduced to this gem by Tom. It's nice and simple to find, it's essentially the main car park at Hells Mouth beach. It's a square carpark and approximately a 5 minute walk down a straight sandy path from the carpark to the beach. As far as camp spots go, I do believe this one … Continue reading Wales – Abersoch (Hells Mouth- Pwllheli)
