Haggerston Castle, Day One

We would not normal use a site like Haggerston Castle but we got a special offer of four nights for £37. Mick and Bren also got the same deal.

It is a very large Haven Holiday site just off the A1 in Northumberland close to Berwick-upon-Tweed. All you would expect from a large holiday complex, bars, food, pool, shop, etc. Plenty of historic and interesting places to visit.

We arrived not long before Mick and Bren and were given a plot near to each other. I got the sat working (England playing again) and we all set off to see what the complex was like. You have to walk passed all of the games machines to get to the bar, it is like walking through hell. The bar is nice enough and they had two hand pulled beers but there was something not right about it. I was a bit like drinking in a large canteen, so even though we got good seats in front of a big TV for the match, we only had the one and set off back to watch it in the van.

England played very badly and the whole lot should be dropped from any further England games, its important to us but to them its just something hey get payed for and they wanted to be on holiday. Most of them are the same players that let the country down in 2008.

Lasagna for supper (made with minted lamb) and a film with a few beers before bed.
