Lincoln residents Michelle and Steph rented out our vintage VW camper-van Bertie last week. However, instead of embarking on a cross-country trek, the pair decided to look closer to home…

Steph and Michelle review their stay in Bertie and at Hanworth Country Park

Potterhanworth is a small country-side village in Lincolnshire – a mere 20 minute drive from Lincoln city-center. It boasts the idyllic country park, Hanworth Country Park. Facilities include the “Lakeside Leisure Lodges” and glamping pods as well as the usual camping and camper-van areas. There are also a couple of fishing spots to catch dinner. Why not put to use the stove within our vintage T2 camper-vans. It comes to no surprise then, that Michelle and Steph, who visited there last week, felt at peace from their normal lives.

Michelle and Steph felt that by only driving a short distance from their home, they could still enjoy their trip. By exploring the local area, they found peace and quiet. Just goes to show that with a bit of an open mindedness, there might some hidden gems near your house. In all, Michelle and Steph still were able to have a great time even though they didn’t travel very far.
