We arrived on Monday opening day to a warm welcome from Jackie, Pat, Alan, and Miles and we were given a choice of pitches. We duly settled and quickly sat outside in lovely sunny weather.
In the evening there was the usual welcome flag where we had coffee or tea and sat around talking to old friends and new!
During the whole length of the rally the sun shone and it had a feel of being in France not the York Dales! Rallygoers visited the area going to local markets,some to Forbidden Corner and various walks from site or further afield were undertaken. We visited the Himalayan Sculpture Park at Grewelthorpe and were amazed at the flowers ,trees, water features and Sculptures.There was also a super cafe!
Another day we visited Leyburn and walked The Shawl before exploring the shops. We made sure we went to Masham to visit the cheese man on Market day too!
On the Thursday there was a friendly get together for a wine and cheese evening which the Marshals had organised.
Sunday came and the rally closed after the Flag where prizes and lucky van draws were given out.
This is a lovely venue having a nice cafe at the entrance and although no electric hook ups or showers there are immaculate toilets. There is also a Certificate CL next to walled garden rally field.
We have been lucky to be able to come to this rally for the last few years and find the venue super. The area has so much to see and visit, and the hosts our Rally Marshals always make it one of the best holidays you could wish for.....We are sure they have the prayer mat out each year as its always fine and sunny!
Our thanks go to all the other ralliers as we enjoyed your company and special thanks to the wonderful Marshals! See you next year!
