3 February, Losehill, Castleton, Derbyshire

 February  Losehill Caravan Club site, Castleton

We got itchy feet after spending January at home so we headed off to Losehill Caravan Club site at Castleton in the Peak district. It's only an hour from home and despite the grey weather,  it cheered us up just thinking about going. Castleton is so lovely even in rotten weather - I think there's a sign in a shop in Keswick which reads  'there's no such thing as bad weather just the wrong clothes' or something like that and wrapped up warmly we did a walk round the lanes behind Castleton in the rain. If only I learned from my mistakes and realised that even a short walk would make my jeans soggy
 ( the wrong clothes)........good job there's retail therapy and warm trousers available in Castleton. The rain was so heavy we had to take refuge in The George.... and again in the Castle. A couple sitting near us ordered the Sunday roast- o- it looked so good that we just had to see if it tasted as good as it looked….. it did.
We had a wet walk to Hope (The Old Hall pub and the Traveller's, then the Woodruffe Arms) then another day we walked to Hope, got a train to Edale (the Rambler’s) and walked over Harden Clough back to Castleton. It was dry but cold and luckily the Peak and The Cheshire Cheese were warm and welcoming! Losehill is a good site for walking and cycling and we really like staying there- whatever the weather. It’s a favourite.
