Dorset Weddings

Dorset is a beautiful place, an ideal place for a wedding some might say, well, I say it definitely is. The Dorset countryside is beautiful scenery and if your interested in having a magical time, you can even hire a
Minehead marquee and get yourself into a wonderful outdoor wedding that just embraces the countryside.

 

That’s the best thing to do when your in a lovely location like that, why would you want to be inside a stuffy venue when you can breathe and have the outdoor air on your side.
Weddings can be fun, weddings can be boring, why not make sure that yours is that extra special.

Travelling Through Puddletown, Dorset

If you’ve decided to come on holiday to Dorset, they you’ll most likely be travelling the countryside via car. We all know that in a place like Dorset you’ll be travelling a lot and stopping off at some of the towns and shopping areas. If you want to have a little stroll about the town you could take a stroller and give your child some wheeling fun around the place, but i wouldn’t suggest using a baby carrier. Some of the towns may be a bit large and you’ll struggle to get around if you have to carry your child the whole way.

Puddletown is actually fairly small and travelling around with a well made baby carrier may be possible, you just don’t want to strain yourself. There are some great sights to see in Puddletown, you have the medieval Church of St Mary with it’s historic interiors and monumental brasses, and even 17th century box pews!

If churches aren’t your thing, then you could also visit The Old Manor (reffered to as Ilsington House) which is located on the east side of Puddletown. This building is quite onle and is actually listed as a Grade II Country house. The house is said to be oveer 300 years old. The house has history which you will be able to find once you enter the town.

Puddletown has a lot of things to see, it’s only a small place with a population of around 1000, but a place you don’t want to miss in Dorset.

Dorset In A Campervan

Campervans are brilliant, I’ve always looked at buying myself a campervan, the possibilities are endless when you think about it. Not only do you have a van, but a place to eat and sleep too when your on the road! I’ve always wanted to pick one up because I feel driving holidays could be a lot of fun! It’s always fun to just hit the road and see where the wind takes you!

I’ve done a bit of travelling around europe before, I can say that it is a lot of fun, the main issue is that when your traveling in just a car, you don’t have the space that you need. It would also be great to have a fridge aswell to keep the food and milk cold.

That’s why i’ve decided to pick up a van, I’m not sure what kind yet but I think I’m going to go for a campervan conversion! This is a transporter styled van that has been converted into a camper. I could even buy the van second hand and get it converted myself to increase the value. I found a website online Autohaus VW that actually perform these conversions, they look absolubtely fantastic.

I actually scrolled through some of their screenshots and it’s exactly what I am after, The decision now is wether to buy a pre-existing conversion or go for one that I can have converted. Whichever will save me the most money!
