I thought I’d share how INSANE driving in the UK can sometimes be… particularly if you take the wrong road in the Lake District while towing a caravan 🤦♀️While still on a main road the car navigation said I’d arrived with no campground in sight. I had cars behind me, so carried on trying to find a place to pull over.
A village came up so I decided I’d go in there, lap the block, find a place to stop and look at my map before carrying on. Turns out the roads are extremely narrow in this village! That’s the start of the video with me squeezing between two buildings. I manage to find a spot to stop and properly find the campground on the gps.
It takes me down this road that gets narrower and narrower… you’ll see what it’s like in the video. At one point 5 cars needed to reverse to let me through. The road just went on and on. I eventually arrived and was actually shaking 🤯
Turns out the instructions for this campground are to ignore the gps and follow their directions, which is a MUCH easier drive.
The Borrowdale Caravan Club campground is surrounded by trees and feels very private. You can stroll to this lake from the caravan and I hiked the Great Gable walk with a cute stone bridge and amazing views from the top. It really was worth the stress getting here 💛
