The ‘moment’ you realise there’s, ‘No place like home’

OMGB

Nicola and I love travelling around the UK and we both have static caravans one of us at the lakes and the other at South Shields. 

From the North of Scotland to Cornwall, Sea to Sea (aka C2C which is on our doorstep) to beautiful Ireland there is no where we don’t want to explore

For years we’ve championed Visit England and love their newest campaign #OMGB (Oh My Great Britain). This four-week #OMGB ‘Home of Amazing Moments’  campaign uses film and images of authentic experiences and activities shot on locations across the UK to inspire people to take a short break at home and encourage Brits to share their own memorable #OMGB moments on social media.

Here’s a little inspiration from VisitEngland.

Trek the Lake District with fluffy Llamas
With Lakeland Llama Treks, you can enjoy the companionship of a local Llama on a guided trek around the beautiful Eden Valley in Cumbria. A range of different treks are on offer for different levels and ages, ranging from a one hour mini trek to longer countryside trails. Complete the experience with a stay in the Llamas Pyjamas B&B and a bite to eat at the Llama Karma Café (which also doubles as a zoo). Now we’ve trekked the Lake District but NEVER with Llama’s.

Party in the Northern Quarter, Manchester
Manchester’s Northern Quarter is a bazaar of the weird and wonderful. Handmade crafts, vintage and couture fashion, and delicious food are all on offer inside this wonderfully restored former Fish and Poultry Market. Actually Suzanne is also quite partial to Spinningfields and adores The Lowry hotel near by.

See ‘Britain’s favourite view’, Wastwater, Lake District
A feast for the eyes, Wastwater has been voted Britain’s ‘favourite view’, with towering mountains surrounding the crystal waters of the deepest lake in England. It’s an ideal location for picnics, walking, and diving. Close to the towering mountain of Scafell Pike, the majestic scenery here provides an atmospheric backdrop no matter the weather.

Visit a former ‘supervolcano’, Glen Coe, Highlands
As Scotland’s most iconic glen it’s no wonder that this epic setting appeared in the James Bond film Skyfall. Its raw beauty is best explored on a hike, roaming amongst wild deer and admiring rocky peaks shrouded in mist.

Discover myths and legends at The Giant’s Causeway, Antrim, Northern Ireland
This awe-inspiring World Heritage Site graced the cover of Led Zeppelin’s fifth album and featured in countless films and TV shows. The state-of-the-art visitor centre tells the story of these famous basalt columns rising out of the sea, which are the perfect backdrop for a memorable moment.
