Pickle says…In the summer we went on a little road trip to go glamping at theMilton Keynes Camping and Caravanning Club Site. Now did you know that Milton Keynes is famous for it’s roundabouts!? Everyone Mummy told about our holiday to MK said it had lots of roundabouts. And it does, but it has so much more too….
Milton Keynes is a purpose built town, and whilst we didn’t have time to go into the town itself, we explored the local area.
We stayed at the Milton Keynes Camping and Caravanning Club Site, which has touring caravan and tent pitches as well as en suite glamping dens and glamping pods.
It is home to the amazing Bletchley Park (which we visited). This is a place you must visit if staying in the area.
There is a theme park, Gulliver’s Land right next door to the club site. We did not have time to visit, but it looked like a great day out.
Where to eat
So many choices nearby including McDonalds, KFC, Nando’s, TGI Friday’s, M&S restaurant, and we found an awesome chippy sign posted off the main road in a small housing estate. The fish and chips were delicious!
Where to stay
Touring hard standing pitches, grass tent pitches with electric, camping pods and glamping en-suite dens. We stayed in a den and loved it. It rained for two thirds of our holiday but we were dry, warm and cosy. The den has a shower, full size loo, a little sink unit, small fridge, kettle and microwave. It was perfect for the four of us.
The sitting area made up into a huge bed, and there were full size bunk beds with proper mattresses too. It was very comfy! Outside was a sitting area on raised decking with a canopy which was a lovely space.
The camp site had a very small shop, coded barriers to get on and off the site, and was very clean and tidy. There was a toilet and shower block, family rooms and a laundry room too.
We love Camping and Caravanning Club sites as they are always well looked after and have great facilities. Most sites have wifi, as did this one. You have to pay but it is quite reliable and worth it if you need the connection. The fact some now have glamping options is just great! Arriving after a 5 hour journey and not having to then put the tent up was brilliant.
Follow the signs for the water park at the roundabout, the site itself is not well sign posted at all. Left at roundabout then left again in front of water park entrance. There are specific directions on the website.
