Why choose a CaSSOA site like Bramcote Mains for your caravan storage? Well, there are lots of reasons. Don’t just take our word for it, listen to the opinion of Shield Total Insurance. They are specialist insurers for caravans and motorhomes and have recently produced a video explaining why they give a considerable discount for people who store with a CaSSOA site. Just follow this link to watch their video (opens in a new window).

Their video library also has short videos offering a beginners guide to caravan storage and the top ten tips for caravan storage

PANDEMONIUM AT BRAMCOTE

Those of you who were on the site the other Sunday may have wondered what on earth was going on with all those people about. Well, we were hosting a 12 km. obstacle race for Naked Strength to benefit the A.B.F. and R.A.B.I. Similar events will be held in February and August next year so if you fancy joining in watch this space!

I’ve posted below some photos of the day and these is a video of the whole course on YouTube if you follow this link

Not many of our regular visitors get the opportunity to view the site at 6:30 a.m. We are grateful to one of our visitors to the touring pitches, Ron Cameron of Elgin, for this photograph of the lake and thank him for letting us use it and share it:

It’s Show Time!

Some of you will know at this time of the year David takes the prize specimens of his sheep around the best of the agricultural shows to compete against other breeders. So far we’ve been to the Staffordshire and Kenilworth shows.

At Staffordshire we had the Reserve champion Ram with one of our Dorsets and won the ‘Best 3’ class with the Charmoise. We did equally well at Kenilworth and have the Ian Litchfield Trophy on display for the best pen of 3 lambs.

The big shows – Three Counties, Great Yorkshire – are yet to come so keep watching for the results.

More Signs of Spring

This morning there were 3 small ducklings on the small fishing lake. Will try and get a photo and post in due course. Let’s hope the crows don’t get them!

With the disappearance of the last of the recent snow it appears that the grass is at last beginning to grow. This means we can get the sheep and lambs out of the barns and into the fields. This will make it look more like spring around the place.

Also in the last few days an emerging bumble bee has been seen and yesterday – not on the farm – a butterfly that had managed to overwinter was also out in the afternoon sunshine.

But today on the farm – and the surest sign yet that winter is passed – the swallows have returned and are sweeping over the reservoir looking for food.

Fancy a burger and worried what you might be eating? Then why not try some of our lamb burgers? The supply chain is short – from farm to local slaughter and back to the deep freezes on the farm and they contain nothing but 100% lamb – except for a snall about of mint in the mint flavoured ones. Call into the office and pick some up for yourself – £1-25 each. We are also taking orders for whole or part lamb for the freezer and again you can be assured of the supply chain. Have no doubts – get the meat you pay for!

It’s Snowing!

Just to let you know that despite the snow we are open. The main roads have been ploughed and the storage areas are managable for most vehicles. Please be careful as you approach the first barrier on the drive – particularly early in the day – as the road may be icy and you couild slide into it.

We are in the middle of the latest lambing so staff are working hard both day and night so even if the office is closed there should be someone around if you do happen to get stuck in the snow.
