Hi, I'm Bernie and I'm the man behind the Old Vicarage campsite.
I grew up on this farm and have spent much of my life enjoying the outdoors. From my first cub camp, aged 7, I've always loved camping. Being comfortable living in the great outdoors is a great asset to life, and has allowed me to see and explore places that would be otherwise out or reach- either geographically or financially. As a camper I can travel further and stay for longer. I have an adventurous spirit and like to travel by any means possible- car, on foot, bicycle or motorcycle. But my preferred choice of accomodation is always a tent.
I've stayed at many campsites in many countries and have formed a picture in my mind of my perfect site. When creating the Old Viarage Campsite, I wanted to make it as close to this as possible. I've had to make some allowances- I'd like a beach and a waterfall, but they are proving tricky. Other than that I've done my best with what I had available! A simple site with the bare essentials, tents only, campfires allowed and no unescessary rules or restrictions.
It is a great pleasure to be able to share this beautiful piece of the great outdoors with you. I hope you enjoy visiting the site as much as I do running it.
