Exmoor House, CC Site, Dulverton

So it is the beginning of December so it must be time to head for Dulverton to enjoy the 'Dulverton by Starlight Celebrations'.
The site, was very full, with two thirds of the occupants being motorhomers. We had opted for a fully serviced pitch, and in view of the weather I was rather glad. It was extremely cold and damp.
A fully serviced pitch is one that comes with electric, mains water, which we connect to the caravan, and a drain which we connect the caravan to. On Caravan Club sites there is an extra £3.00 a night charge.  Many commercial sites and ones abroad often provide them for free !
On our pitch at Exmoor House , Dulverton.

On the Saturday we did no more than go up into Dulverton, where there is a lovely range of small shops, where we wandered around doing some Christmas shopping It was very foggy, and cold

I went to the 8.00am service at Dulverton Parish Church on the Sunday.  Just after lunch we went up to the Dulverton by Starlight celebrations. Lots of stalls in the street, but surprisingly, apart from raffle tickets we did not spend much.  Enjoyed the atmosphere though.
Afterwards the fireworks were very good as usual!

Monday started very misty, but it cleared very quickly so we set off for Minehead, for a look round, even though it was very cold.

It was really foggy and cold on Tuesday so we spent time writing our Christmas cards.

We went for our traditional Christmas lunch on the Wednesday, and had an absolutely excellent meal!
If you are in the area it is well worth a visit.  www.woodsdulverton.co.uk

Neither of us were feeling particularly bright due to winter colds, so as the weather forecast was grim we decide to cut our time at Dulverton a couple of days short.
We cleared up in 2 hours, and were home a couple of hours later.

So ends our 2016 caravan exploits. 172 nights away in total.
