Easedale Tarn – Grasmere – Lake District

One of my favourite walks in the Lake District is Easedale Tarn near Grasmere.  Like many walks in the Lakes it has a bit of everything; country lanes, babbling streams, fields, waterfalls, old bridges, steep paths, picnic spots, cows, tarns and stunning views.  I first discovered it about 8 years ago in one of my… Continue reading Easedale Tarn – Grasmere – Lake District

Carew Castle and Tidal Mill, Wales

Perched, upon a small hill overlooking the Carew River, lies the haunting remains of Carew Castle.  A picturesque ruin built in the 13th century, this castle offers romantic views, tales of knights, war and romance, beautiful walks along the riverside, crabbing in the shallows of the water and a beautiful water mill.  I had intended… Continue reading Carew Castle and Tidal Mill, Wales

Hound Tor and Medieval Village, Dartmoor, Devon

I have spent years driving over Dartmoor and rarely have I stopped to explore it.  I have spent the odd night, usually at the Two Bridges Hotel, on my way home from Cornwall.  This year I vowed to actually stop, spend a few days here and explore properly. My drives over the moors, have often… Continue reading Hound Tor and Medieval Village, Dartmoor, Devon

Corpse Road – Grasmere to Rydal Water Lake District

The more I visit the Lake District, the more I discover new favourite walks to add to my ever growing list of much favoured destinations.  When I had only been a few times, I made sure that on every visit I did a new one as well as my firm favourites.  But now after 12… Continue reading Corpse Road – Grasmere to Rydal Water Lake District

Castlerigg Stone Circle – Lake District

Every time I come up to the Lake District, despite having my firm favourite walks, lakes, views, cafes, restaurants and museums I make it my mission to discover somewhere new every day.  Today, it was Castlerigg Stone Circle.  This has been on my list for some time, but deep down I had this feeling that… Continue reading Castlerigg Stone Circle – Lake District

Chapel Stile to Elterwater – Lake District Walks

I spent a wonderful week in half term in the Lake District with William, my 3 year old.  I've been coming to the lakes for many years, and although when he was very tiny we didn't come up now he's a bit older we've come back a few times and each time both him and… Continue reading Chapel Stile to Elterwater – Lake District Walks

Chapel Porth Beach, Cornwall

When you visit a place every year, you might think it would be hard to find something new to do.  But despite going to Cornwall every year for a couple of weeks, from a verty young age, I always make it my mission to find a new place to explore and especially to find a… Continue reading Chapel Porth Beach, Cornwall

Cornwall is well known for its golden sands, crystal clear turquoise waters, its amazing surf and beaches that stretch for miles around coves and caves.  Godrevy Beach ticks all of those boxes and is a must for surfers, families and anyone who just loves the beach. I only discovered Godrevy Beach last summer when I… Continue reading Godrevy Beach, Hayle, Cornwall

Mother Ludlams Cave, Farnham

Double, double toil and trouble;  Fire burn and cauldron bubble.  Fillet of a fenny snake,  In the caldron boil and bake;  Eye of newt and toe of frog,  Wool of bat and tongue of dog,  Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,  Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,  For a charm of powerful trouble,  Like a hell-broth boil… Continue reading Mother Ludlams Cave, Farnham
