Cliff House Camping, Dunwich, Suffolk - 15th June 2019

It's the second trip out with the van in almost as many weeks, this time back to a favourite spot of Cliff House near Dunwich. The site is absolutely crammed, as it's fully booked, but there's beer on at the bar and the weather's not bad. There's some time to hang out on the beach before a walk through the woods to the awesome Ship Inn at Dunwich, for a few beers in the sun.
