Hi Polly
NP16 6TE

NP16 6TE - Google Maps (http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=NP16+6TE&sll=53.800651,-4.064941&sspn=12.270158,33.178711&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Chepstow,+Gwent+NP16+6TE,+United+Kingdom&z=16)

Sat Nav and Google will probably try to take you down the m5 and over the severn bridge, thats ok it will be the quickest but you have to pay to get into Wales, its free to leave.

If it was me I would come off of the M5 at Gloucester and go through the forest of dean. You won't have to pay the severn bridge charge and you will also get to drive through the Forest of Dean which will be very pretty in early may with all the spring wild flowers coming out.

Or.... M6, M5, M50 to Ross-on-Wye then the A40 to Monmouth and A466 along the Wye Valley scenic drive to Tintern. 3 hours door-to-door to Warrington if that helps.

If you prefer a non-motorway route, depending on where you are in Cheshire, you could follow the A49 all the way to Ross, then A40 to Monmouth and as above.

Thats a better route than mine Roo :)
Polly ignore me :D, being local and further south I always forget that the M50 exists.

Mind you as AJ found out last weekend the forest is full of little surprises if you go off the main roads, well worth the detour if you have time :)

Happy to organise a BBQ, can get racks of ribs and plenty of other yummy stuff, It will be better weather than the last one so we can do a proper job, but I think we need to ask the pub as it will mean no-one eating in the pub that night, which they may not be so happy about :(

Ok we are getting revved up for this one now, Off to the Cash and Carry next week to buy racks of ribs :) about 20 should do us LOL.

BustyDafidill I recon you should be able to get better burgers than us, the ones from Bookers are Cr^p , is that ok ? let us know before next weekend if you can't :D

We have worked out we can get our full size garden BBQ onto the bike rack so that will be quite a site going do the motorway, should give people a smile :)

If anyone has any special requests for the bbq let us know, if anyone wants to bring their own food and cook it by all means do. We're happy to cook for all on the BBQ.

It would be nice if you could each bring something like , coldslaw, potato salad, tomato salad if you can let Nicole (mrsBigG) know and I'm sure we can have a BBQ and bash for AJS and Niciole that we all remember on the satdee night.

If the weather turns bad then we have the pub to fall back on they have a massive cafe / eating area at the back of the pub and I'm sure they will not mind us using it so long as we are drink loads of their beer :) BUT the weather will be good, I'm gonna sacrifice a goat to be sure :eek:

OK Peep's this is where we are :)
Saturday evening we will be BBQing and having a party in the field all are welcome to join us and AJS to celebrate his and Nicole's bday's. AJS will be at least 105 and Nicole is going to be 30 :D :D

We went shopping today :)
We have racks of ribs (lots)
We have burgers (lots)
We have burger buns (lots)

Those that are coming to the BBQ to eat please can you comit to what you are bringing as there are no shops near where we are staying and we don't want to bring loads of stuff and find its not needed or not bring stuff and find we are all sharing 1 tomato and a spring onion :D :D

If you don't want to eat thats fine still come along or bring your own and join us anyways :0)

We need people to put a name by the following or add something in.
Sausages
Potato Salad
Colslaw
Tomato salad
Green Salad stuff
Onion salad stuff
Asparagus if you can get it, it BBQ's in foil luvely
Butternut squash, again BBQ's luvely
Rice Salad
Fish Fingers
Crisps
Generator
Music machine
Burger cheese for those that want it

We think thats it, sorry for being pushy but nothing worse that 30 people all bringing 4 burgers each and none of the other stuff.

The weather is still saying sunny for the whole time fri - monday, so those that are at a loose end this is the place to head for :)

Sounds good.

A slight change of plan for me. I'll have to leave on/before Saturday: customers who were due to visit tomorrow are stranded in Singapore and trying to get back to the UK via Milan, Zurich and/or Spain so their visit has had to be postponed by a week.

Re the catering, I'll self-cater (regardless of what the 'Birthday Boy' says!), although this will be prior to Saturday's BBQ so shouldn't affects anyone's plans. The crisp and fish finger butties were a joke.... unless there are any other fish finger addicts here! (BTW Do 'posh' motorhomes actually have freezers for such things?! ;) )

No problem, its not that important, just thought if someone had one it would be use full to allow us to have some outside lights and music running without having to worry about batterys but its no biggy, AJS and BigBoack both have gennys if we need em :)

We're taking a drive over today to check the field is dry and measure up the access points and ensure the landlord is prepared for us :D

Maybe he will run us a cable out. Mind you were not paying him for the field so we will have to be careful how much we ask for or he might get the idea he should of charged for the field :eek::eek:

So we had a ride over today and met Rach, nice to see em. Lets hope you make it, If your there we can significantly reduce the average age of the meeting :D :D :D

Anyway enough of the blinding wit.

We checked out the field lovely and firm.
Geoff the landord has cleared the main entrance from the main road for us, and he is removing the tree tommorow from the back entrance (no jokes AJS)

There is a long hose on the side of the Cafe, which is now open and Geof would like us to park behind there 20 - 30 feet into the field. When driving on please stick to the right hand side of the field and DO NOT drive across the cricket pitch, as if we would ;)

So thats it were all go for a great weekend meet.

Couple of photos below showing the entrance across from the main road. This is accesible on the left as you drive south from Tintern village, if you drive up from the severn crossing then it will be on your right and might be a bit tight to get into. The slope has tarmac on it and hardcore so won't become a problem.

Thats it then, see you there Friday onwards. :D :D

Yep I agree, thats one of the reasons I wanted to go over today.

The field is very firm, They have been rolling it for years and its been used for classic car meetings as well for many yars and in the past the Motorhome Owners Club used it, today there were a bunch of Jensons using the field, not quite 4.5 tonnes :) but years of cars going on and off has compacted the field nicely. I was more worried that the entrance would be grassed as its a slope but I was pleased to see it had tarmac on it. Perfect :)

Having said all that Rob will need to decide if he is confident on the day, better safe than sorry :)

The field is very firm, They have been rolling it for years and its been used for classic car meetings as well for many yars and in the past the Motorhome Owners Club used it, today there were a bunch of Jensons using the field, not quite 4.5 tonnes :) but years of cars going on and off has compacted the field nicely. I was more worried that the entrance would be grassed as its a slope but I was pleased to see it had tarmac on it. Perfect :)

Having said all that Rob will need to decide if he is confident on the day, better safe than sorry :)

Also loads of cars and vans most weekends as they used to do boot sales every week :p

lol.. we are strapping our big BBQ to the bike rack on the back of the motorhome (should be a sight worth seeing :D ) we also have a couple of tables but wouldnt say no to another if you want to bring one.

if you're going to cash n carry then by all means please do pick up plates, forks and napkins, im sure it will be much easier to use paper plates then have to wash up :)

thank very much Liz

Is there room for 1 more van? Tracey and I, 3 boys and dog.

Arrive Friday evening, probably around 7-8pm traffic permitting leaving Sunday and like bmb1uk may then move on to Barry Knap for a night as it looks like a nice spot for wild camping beginners.

This will also be our first meet with Wildcamping.

We don't have cash and carry but do do Tesco on Friday am so can pick up Crisps and cheese slices.

Bring it along, we have an MP3 player that runs through the motorhome system but it will kill the battery if it runs too long.

The Weather
The weather forcast is changable on Saturday with a 10% chance of showers, Don't worry folks 2 of us with awnings will park facing and roll out our awnings to make a large covered area, Thats if its needed. As Sun and Monday are forcast as sunny I expect that Saturday is unlikely to be anything other than the very occasional shower :D :D
If some of us can bring wind breaks that will help as well :D

Hi Guys and Girls,
Have been following this thread for a while but have been unable to commit due to changing the Van. Have now done doing and am ready to give the newbie her maiden run.
So a few questions
1 Is there enough space for one motorhome and contents (Me, Sue-J & Dottie Rotty)?
2 What is required by way of provisions? (just give me a list and will aquire)
3 I have a full Disco/Karaoke set up,but it will need a good genie to drive it or a power cable. Do you want me to bring it?

Would do arriving Thursday leave Sunday
Finally will be leaving home To-morrow (Tues) so need to know by lunchtime.

Regards,
michael

Items to tick off the list:-

Burger cheese.

Onions
Some more crisps

We've also got some bottles of pop and a few ice creams for the kids and a few chicken pieces.

Generators/power is covered as I will bring a portable as well as my on board genny, plus I have a 2Kw invertor if needed.

Have got a couple of paste tables I can bring if they will be of any use.

Sounds great, don't worry about the tables, we have a couple which should be enough.

We promised the landlord the BBQ would be a low key affair as he would not normally allow us to do this. they prefer people to eat in the pub but have made an exception for us :)

I agree, I was also intending to only drink beer on the field that I bought from the pub, can't say I will do the same with the whisky though ;)

Should not be too difficult for us to have a few beers in the pub, Friday and Sunday. Their Sunday lunches are pretty good I'm told.

It would be nice to keep them sweet, Its a lovely ideal place for large gatherings :)

Plenty of room Graham :)
bring yourself thats all thats needed now I think, Nic and AJS may kill me for that, AJS as always will require a bottle of the finest single malt :)

We're planning to BBQ on Saterday night and people are bringing things for that, If you want to join us please do, if you bring something make it light as we already have lots of meat and staple foods :D

the pubs web site is here, AJ and some other will be eating in pub Friday night.

AJS has been in contact from the site, a few have already begun to arrive :)

He says that despite rain today the grownd is solid and not a problem at all,

The landlord has cleared the back entrance for us today, clearing a tree and cutting back the overgrown shrubs. He has asked if those that can get in this way do so as it means we won't all be driving over the field to get down. AJS drove through this way and had a few inches clear on either side, those such as Geoff and Graham and the caravan can still use the gate on the main road, remember you need to approach from the north. If you come from the south you will need to drive some way up the road before you can turn around. see you all tommorow :)

AJS has been in contact from the site, a few have already begun to arrive :)

He says that despite rain today the grownd is solid and not a problem at all,

The landlord has cleared the back entrance for us today, clearing a tree and cutting back the overgrown shrubs. He has asked if those that can get in this way do so as it means we won't all be driving over the field to get down.

Have you ever tried cow tipping. (cows sleep stood up). creep up on them and push them over, It was funny when i was a lad.. Although the site of you on crutches and carrying a beer bottle like you do would be funnier than cow tipping itself..:D:D

Just got back, left tintern yesturday but had great weekend. Thanks for making it a great weekend for 'wildcamping newbies' and what a great bunch you all are.

We moved on to The Knap, Barrry yesturday and what a wonderfull spot that is.

Drove home today, had to come off M5 due to accident, which meant we had a nice break from the motorway. I am sure we followed Steve and his parents towing his mini as they came off the M5 (J9)

Anyway we're looking forward to the next one.

[QUOTE]

A couple of us were chatting about this earlier today. What about Forest of Dean carpark for the next Bank Holiday monday? Shall we start another thread?

We could do the BBQ thing again or order a delivery?

Anyways,
Bob & I arrived at this meet on Sat afternoon. Has some real fun putting the awning out for the first time (a BIG thank you to those that came to our rescue -you know who you are!).
The BBQ food was lush but best of all, I didnt do the cooking!!!

Sunday we dined with Steph & Charlie for a salad lunch, and later on a group of us set off for dinner in the pub, only to discover they didnt serve food on Sunday evenings.
So, we ordered an Indian for delivery to the field next to the pub! We had a few drinks in the pub anyway, then took delivery of our food. It was lovely.
The evening rounded off with a bit of TV.

Monday AM, chatted to those left and had early lunch with a few peeps before heading off home.

I had a lovely relaxing time, lots of laughs & fun & met some truly lovely people, both new & those we've met before.

A big thank you to Nic & Mark for organising the BBQ & stuff, to AJ for arranging the field & to everyone who turned up for making it a fun & friendly weekend. I cannot wait until the next one.

Glad to hear everyone else seems to have had a good time as well and you all got home OK.

We really enjoyed ourselves and would like to thank everybody who came for making it such good fun.

Hopefully meet up again soon, not sure about bank holiday as Steven wants to go racing again, but if anyone is interested in a meet up the weekend before (21/23 May) at Speach house (or elsewhere in the Forest) we could be up for it.
