Snail Spaces: Sweethope Loughs

A CMC Certificated Location, beautifully situated in the middle of nowhere, Sweethope is extremely low-key. Aimed mainly, we would guess, at the angling fraternity it nevertheless suits us well.

The smaller lough

Five hard core pitches, don’t even approximate to level and ramps are recommended. The ground around is boggy.  Grass is rough cut. There  are flies and midges but there is a lake, which is a bonus and the rest tends to go with it.

The pitches are in a contained area bordering onto the smaller lough

Water is  on pitch and the hookups work. There is chem disposal and rinsing water and waste bins. 

Shared showers and toilets are a walk away through the wood. There are separate disabled facilities.

Plenty of walking opportunities.

Management is warm, relaxed and welcoming. 

Cheap and cheerful and perfect if all you want is peace and quiet. We had the place to ourselves on our first visit (Dec 2016) and shared with two caravans on our second visit (August Bank Holiday weekend)

Last Visit: August 2017

Snail Spaces: Brahan Estate (CL)

A five-van CL, the Brahan Estate offers waste disposal and fresh water, peace and quiet and miles of walking.

Parking at Brahan is between the oak trees lining the drive

Parking is above the Ha-ha and under the old Oaks on a tree-lined drive. The pitches are undefined and there is masses of space in which to fit five units.

Plenty of space

The view across a barley field edged by trees with hills beyond is beautiful.

August 2017

Buzzards fly overhead, owls hoot in the night and shy deer visit from time to time. There is an arboretum to admire and a dog cemetery to visit. There are walks through woods and along the River Conon.

Out with Nell

Management is relaxed and informal.

A blissful spot to stay.
