Paul Merton and Suki Webster were in the Peak District in the latest episode of Motorhoming with Merton & Webster. Channel 5 viewers tuned in to see them on the next leg of their UK staycation adventure in their trusty motorhome and fans were given some useful van life tips. For anyone who doesn’t have a shower, or is struggling to keep the flame alight when boiling their kettle because of the wind, they shared some handy hacks.
The first morning found Paul and Suki in a campsite north of Bakewell.
Later, they swapped four wheels for two after hiring bikes on the nearby Monsal Trail, a dissed former railway line.
They then dropped by a local campsite and set up for the evening.
But noticed a few of their neighbours had unusual accommodation.
“But we sometimes find it [the wind] comes from behind us.
“What I like to do is put a bit of kitchen foil over the front,” and he demonstrated how to do it.
“Now I know I can just boil my kettle or cook some bacon without worrying about the flame getting blown out.”
The next stop on Paul and Suki’s journey was to leave Hope Valley and head north to Derwent Dam.
