The perfect Stop over on the way to Scotland?

Updated: May 10, 2022

Farm and Fell in Sedburgh was just the right distance from London for our first night of the Scottish Adventure. Nessa (top speed 65 mph) "whisked" us to the Yorkshire dales in 5 hours. Then an easy drive, but a world away from the M6, this working farm with campsite is highly recommended.

Kids, however big, are encouraged to help out at feeding time. I declined, but Louise barged past the children to grasp the opportunity and feed the lambs and calves (6 litres of milk each from a huge bottle!). Her face, when she came back from this was one of the most joyous things I have seen. A tear in my eye, I realised for the umpteenth time that day why I love her so much!

Children watch on jealously as Lou monopolises the animals.

We'd had a 2 hour walk on the glorious Yorkshire Dales Way. Worked up quite a hunger. We "dined" at the no frills Red Lion in Sedburgh, great bitter ("Yorkshire cocktail") , and home made pie, interestingly microwaved. Just the job. No one expected frills in Yorkshire. Sedburgh however, did appear to be the frilliest of Yorkshire towns, highly reminiscent of our very own Eton. We assume it's a town built and dedicated around the incredibly well manicured and hallowed turf of the ancient independent Sedburgh school. Alumni apparently include Will Greenwood and Will Carling, which is good enough for me!

Our earlier walk had reminded us why we love #vanlife

Grass pitch and solar powered bliss! Slept well and woke early.

On to Scotland , refreshed and revitalised already!
