Last year most of us walked to the pub through a woods and across fields full of cows then walked back along the beach. That way we could drink ourselves silly without fear of losing our driving licences. If you want to do it this way you had better bring a pair of walking boots in case it is wet and muddy on the day. You have been warned.

Thanks for the update Harry. Latest thinking with us is we'll probably only be day visitors, but I might make the bed up in the back just in case ha ha. 8)
