    As you may realise we "Hide abroad" in the winter as my Wife is Thai so we can Live there for 6 or 7 months
    I would not wish to UK it in the winter
    Mainly because of the daylight hours and related items/
    We Full-time all UK summer and rarely use campsites
    Except when we are near Maidenhead...Very Very Limited WC opportunities

    Here in Thailand it is "winter" so it gets dark at 6pm ish
    But it is not usually too cold and we live "under the house" and cook outside
    Today Roast Chicken (Suitably stuffed) Roasted over a BBQ in a very large WOK (3hrs)
    Also Roast spuds (Thai and UK) Yorkshire pud cauliflower

    But it does not really answer the poll
    If I could do the poll again I might change it !
    But .......That is extending the poll and although relevant, I suggest of less interest!
    If they sleep in the house (which we have done) it is "cheating" ! ? *

    AND we had to clean their saucepans !
