I would like to thank Evelyn and David for the warm, friendly and relaxed atmosphere we found in Varne Ridge : it made the wait easier to deal with and made us better prepared for the swim, mostly thanks to their suggestions and to the many invaluable tips we got from other swimmers .
Evelyn, your warm water bottle was a deciding factor in fighting hypothermia !!!!
Dear David and Evelyn
Thank you so much for your hospitality and your support. Stefhane is very happy to cross the channel and was very touched when he saw you at caravan park. You are very nice people. We felt at home!
A joy to return to Varne and David & Evelyn. Despite adversity I achieved my solo crossing and being in Varne Ridge helped my preparation and recovery. We’ll look forward to seeing David & Evelyn some time in the future.
Where else could we find such hospitality? The caravan is soooo well equipped that we couldn’t want for more, including the welcome pint of milk!. Thank you so much.
Lyn, Andy, Alan, Eric & Holly,
Thank you for a wonderful stay – you’ve been fantastic and our channel swim wouldn’t have gone nearly as smoothly without your help and support!

Love staying here. We always have such a lovely warm welcome. Caravans are so clean and well equipped – home from home. Thank you.

Merry Christmas Evelyn and David!
Just want to thank you (last year I was too burnt out) - you are an integral part of Channel Swimming, and Varne Ridge is definitely one of the best places to stay with your team, awaiting favourable tides and weather to cross the Channel.
Me and my friends and teammates have stayed in a number of your caravans for a couple of years now - and we enjoyed our stays there tremendously every time.
Your support and helpfulness have been outstanding, the caravans are great and the views across the Channel or into the sunset, sunrise and night sky are terrific. And Evelyn, your were an angel in 2010, when you gave me all those left-over coffeinated gues which worked wonders fuelling me and keeping me awake on the 2nd leg of my Channel-triathlon (the 300 km bike ride) and also for giving me the Paracetamol the day before my Channel swim, when a flu started attacking me after a cold caravan night (swimmers: stay in the heated living room if the night is really cold!) my legs were still wobbly when we boarded the boat, but swimming and the rest was fine. And Dave of course you are an angel too - helping out wherever you can.
