Bank Holiday Fun

This weekend we braved the elements and took ourselves down to Debden House based in Epping Forest for a few days to make the most of the Bank Holiday. I promise the males of the group had a good time too despite their faces...

Epping Forest is only around 20 minutes from my house and I spent many happy hours as a kid cycling through the trees on family day trips. This campsite is at the Loughton end and when you get there you could be absolutely anywhere. I'm so lucky I have this on my doorstep!

With no wifi - something I surprisingly enjoyed! - we spent the days making fires, toasting marshmallows, eating burgers, taking the mick out of each other, wandering through the forest, laughing belly laughs and drinking cider. It was just the mini break I needed and the perfect farewell to the summer. Looks like it's autumn now!
