Have you ever spent Christmas in your motorhome? If so, was it in the UK or abroad? Any experiences you'd care to share?

We have spent the last three or four Christmases in our motorhome, in the north of scotland, good bad and adverse weather, in all cases had a great time. This year we are booked for Moffet site in the borders over the Christmas, and New Year in North Yorkshire at the Angel Inn Topcliffe with
the motorhome stopover club, everything booked for a good hogmanay. :-

We have spent Christmas and some years New Year as well for over 12 years and before that in a caravan. Mostly on Caravan club sites. We are always snug in the van whatever the weather. In the past Wardens have organised a Get Together on Chritmas Eve and in some instances decorated the tractor and trailor and dressed as Father Christmas toured the site with plenty of Yo oH This year we will be at Seacroft CC Looking forward to it

Have had Christmas and new year away in the motorhome in the UK for the last three years, off again on the 22nd December after hiding the kids ( youngest 25 years) presents in the house. peace and quiet and the mobiles do not work. It is magic.

Well not 'our' van but hire van in Oz, parked up at friends house in Canberra, their sofabed was so uncomfatable we elected to sleep in van.
We would be happy to be in van anywhere warm at chrismas as we're not one's for turkey with all the trimings.

Yes, 2 years ago,when we were 'in between' properties.....Christmas was at Sheecote Valley Bighton CC site, then on to Abbey Wood, London CC for New Year.
Most enjoyable, and gave us the opportunity (first and probably only!) to go to the South Bank/Thames and see the New Years eve fireworks. Easy trip from Abbey Wood, and the trains ran 'all night', but we managed to get one fairly soon after the fireworks finished,and the whole thing was wellcontrolled and very orderly.
Would definately do it again,although getting onto a CC site at that period is very diffiicult -however I noticed that there were still several 'late avilablility' pitches over Christmas this year on the Club webite! Signs of the times - or perhaps the weather forecasts?!

We've spent 3 Christmas periods away but not Christmas day itself. We always went on 26/26 December until 1 January (or later if followed by Sat/Sun). The first was at Crystal Palace CC site, London (2004). We had a lovely time as we'd taken our moped with us so were going all over on that (blooming freezing though!), the second time was to Southport (2005) but after a couple of days due to a seriously ill dog we had to come back, so the following year (2006) we went again to Southport and Blackpool sites and had a lovely break. Southport is a really nice place as there CC site is only a short pedal bike ride away and there's plenty to do there, shame it's not a bit closer as we'd go more often!

Unfortunately due to my niece getting married at the end of December 2007 we coulnd't escape that year (after all, she was coming 'home' from New Zealand to get married) and last year I was busy decorating with a view to selling our house ... hmmmmm. This year with hubby leaving work we've been too busy to get away (lots of things to sort out).

Come next year though ...
