“My favourite seaside location has to be Whitby,” said Craven. “I still love going back there to have fish and chips in the Magpie Café. My favourite rural place is Yorkshire Dales. I was born in Leeds, and when I was 11 I received a bike for passing my 11+. Me and my mates used to head out cycling into Wharfedale. Upper Wharfedale is still one of my favourite places in the world.”

They went on to discuss the times John has hired motorhomes in his line of work, the importance of tourism to the British countryside, and the perfect wellies.

For the full interview, see our April issue of Practical Caravan, on sale from 28 February.
