admin, · Categories: Uncategorized

As it is almost peak time for the summer holidays we have a few tips on how to make your mobile home as much like your real home as possible without taking away the experience of staying in a mobile home of course! There are a few main things we often get asked about here at self catering homes including electricity, heat and also if there is an Aerial to catch some of the main TV stations. A lot of people go on a mobile home trip to get away from such things but in the summer months there is a lot of good sporting events such as the British Masters golf that a lot of campers would like to catch from the comfort of their mobile home.

All you need then is a TV of course but you also need a freeview box which many people forget about. We shopped around for the best freesat box and found that Openbox V8S kept coming up when we asked about them as well as the Openbox V9S which is the same box only with built in WIFI. So we ended up getting a Openbox V8S as we do not have WIFI at our camp site and it works a charm. All we had to do was plug the cable into the back of the box and the channels were already loaded and ready to go.

We had a look around online for you guys to get the best deal and found this crowd here at seemed to offer a good price with next day delivery. So this is a good solution if you want to catch an event on whilst out camping! Thanks for reading.

Refurbished Unlock Phone’s are the future!

admin, · Categories: Refurbished Unlock iPhones

Just a quick blog post ( I know it has been a while!) but I have been really busy with the business but came across a cool way to save money for those of you that are interested. So I lost my iPhone recently in Vegas (shock horror!) and I needed to get a replacement asap but was a bit short on cash. My friend then told me about the refurbished iPhone’s that you can get online which as basically used iPhone’s that sell for much cheaper than a brand new one. So I checked it out and found out that I can get them unlocked from for €20.

So I went on over to and got a refurbished iPhone 5S and saved about €150 as against a new one…not bad especially considering how many phones I have lost over the years. Anyway just a small blog post for anyone who is in a similar situation. Let me know if this is of any use to any of my readers? Thanks.
