We had a cheeky overnight stay at Cockerham last Saturday with friends who are caravanners. We chose this site purely for its proximity to Lancaster as we had tickets booked to see The Lancashire Hotpots at the Duke’s Theatre that night. So it was purely a base for the night; however, it was a very well kept, tranquil site, that we intend to re-visit at some point for the fishing that is available on a lake there. The staff are very friendly and there’s a laid back atmosphere.
We spent the afternoon sitting out on site with our friends in the sunshine/cloud/sunshine/cloud, before heading into Lancaster, stopping off at The Stork Inn, Condor Green on the way. We only had a drink here but the food being served looked fair scran.
Instead, we drove on into Lancaster and grabbed a tasty meal at Greaves Park Bar & Restaurant.
We were a little pushed for time though so didn’t hang about before heading to the Duke’s Theatre to watch the Lancashire Hotpots. Such a fun, bonkers and entertaining night. We heartily recommend seeing them if you get a chance, particularly any fellow Lancastrians out there. If you’ve heard anything by them it’ll most likely be ‘Chippy Tea’! Check them out on YouTube and their website as they have a number of dates lined up with their ‘Fistful of Scratchcards’ tour.
Couldn’t resist a cheeky tweet with them after such a good night …
We think we packed a fair amount into a one-night stay and are now itching to get back to one of our favourites, Ravenglass, in the next week or so. Last time we were blessed with the most amazing sunset at the estuary and Suzie managed to get some cracking photos (see previous Ravenglass entry or ‘Polka Shot Photography’ on Facebook).
