We go most weekends during the winter, love it nice and peaceful. We don't have CH but do have DG and use OFR and the gas fire with an electric blanket on the bed its lovely and cosy. Also being on the south coast its often not as cold as up north.

We arrive at ours in September and leave early May the following year. We have a compulsory close down from 20th, February till 1st, March. We have a lodge built to BS 3632:2015 standard so it fine. We use one 47Kg of gas every month. The electric fire is used in the Lounge/Kitchen area when the CH isn't on. The only area that doesn't have heating, is in the hallway where the front door is situated. We are still waiting for the central heating guy to come and fit a new radiator.

My site is open 365 days so we use our van all year. We went down on boxing day for 2 weeks. We love new year at the van.

We are right on the sea in Ayrshire so can be chilly when out with dog in morning but van is fine.

We have installed a wireless thermostat and connected it to my wifi and I can turn heating on few hours before we arrive from my phone.

Thanks Angela, Ive read quite a few of the threads on winterisation and the likes. I think we have just got to get ourselves there next week and see what we need with regards to electric blankets or oil filled radiators etc. I was fancying a matress topper for our bed, so I am looking around to see if there is a thick electric blanket that will act as both.

We use matteres toppers on our double bed and in the other room we have put the 2 single beds together with a matteres topper on our family prefer it to the 2 singles. You can get some great electric over blankets now where you can have your own temperature control on each side !..

It's such a shame you can't access your van. It must be very disappointing.

Aw that is a shame when you was so looking forward to it, I hope the next few weeks go quickly for you. Ours opens up in 3 weeks time, 5 March, if the weather is kind we will probably go there on the 8th ready for hubby's birthday at the weekend. This will be our first full season so we are excited to get back to our lovely van.
