Location: Manapouri, New Zealand

MapArrived quite late in Manapouri and it had just stopped raining. Decided to plump for the ‘charming’ option in the guide (our invaluable combined atlas and campsites list), which should have been described as ‘quirky’, and rolled in to Lakeview – later revealed to have been renamed Manapouri Motor Camp – on what advice we can’t imagine. It did indeed have stupendous lake views, together with an eccentric couple of owners, chalets in the Bavarian style, a fleet of at least 10 Morris Minors in a line rusting away and a ship’s bridge in pride of place next to the children’s play area with a small ‘keep off’ sign dangled at the back. Fantastic!
