Weekend camping at Wing Hall

Happy Bank Holiday Monday! As its the last bank hol until Christmas (yes I did just say the C word) we decided in the week to go camping at nearby Wing Hall for a couple of nights. Wing Hall is only 15 minutes up the road and is an old country house with camping, farm shop & Cafe Bar. 
Close to Rutland Water we were placed in the Adults Only field (obviously don't know us very well!) and pitched up over looking the rolling hills towards Uppingham. 
In typical camping fashion Saturday night was a wash out, it poured all night! Luckily wellies were packed for having to walk across a field to the loo! The next day tho the sun shone and it was a glorious warm summers day giving me time to wander around to see the chickens which are allowed to roam where they like meaning you have to shoo them from your tent and be careful not to run one over! 
And my personal favourite the PIGS!!!!!
As it was a nice day we came back over to Stamford to look around the annual car show but I won't bore you with that now lol! Then it was back to camp to sit out in the evening with a bottle of wine
How did you all spend your weekend? 


  1. Looks like you had a good time Jess. I spent the weekend scrapping .... Bliss

  2. What a lovely weekend you had x
    Mine was full of gardening, visitors & BBQ :D

  3. Sounds like a good weekend and I love chickens and pigs too even more when they are surrounded by roast potatoes & vegetables and gravy poured over ;)
