Coasteering For The Day

Whilst we were sat in The Old Mill yesterday chucking a Waen Beer each down our necks we called up Celtic Quest Coasteering and booked ourselves in for a couple of hours frolicking in waves because we weren't piss wet through and cold enough already. As it turned out though the weather wasn't that bad [...]

Llechwedd Slate Mines

On account of our unparalleled skills for getting lost even with a satnav we left the campsite stupidly early to get to the Llechwedd Slate Caverns to take advantage of their 20% discount offer if you went on a tour before 10am. "Llechwedd" contains three consecutive sounds across two syllables that make a non-Welsh speaker [...]

A Trip Around Anglesey

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, and yes, I copied and pasted the shit out of that bad boy! And no, I still have no fucking idea how to say it. It doesn't help that Welsh letters are pronounced differently to English letters. I'm trying to pick up a bit of Welsh while we're here, I've started to recognise a [...]

Portmeirion And A Lesson In Welsh Weather

It was a bloody lovely day when we woke up and the Met Office assured us it would remain so until around 3ish when it would cloud over and possibly rain. "Fuck it! " we thought, "Let's wear shorts!" Yeah. Do not, under any circumstances, believe the weather forecast in Wales. It is compiled by [...]

A Stroll Up Mount Snowdon

It is very important to consume appropriate quantities of bacon when getting up at god awful hours because everyone knows that bacon contains all the nutrients necessary to stop your body clock from going into shock upon the discovery that there are, in fact, two 4 o' clocks in a day. We wanted the early [...]

Exploring Cheddar

It actually doesn't take a shit tonne of time to get to Cheddar from Cornwall even when your sat nav is trying to kill you because you forgot to turn off the "no motorways" option. Oops. But a spot of tinkering and a minor nervous breakdown later and she was taking us on to all [...]

The Eden Project

Ah, the Eden Project. Arguably the shiny, dome shaped, ethylene tetrafluoroethylene jewel in Cornwall's big, grassy crown. Yeah nah, that analogy made more sense in my head. But anyway, it's one of those must-visit things and one of the reasons we'd chosen Acorn Camping to stay at (aside from the fire pit, the price and [...]

A Little Jaunt Across Bodmin Moor

So today we would be navigating Bodmin Moor. Well, Tarrant would be navigating. I would mostly be eating cookies and Instagraming because if navigation was left to me we'd end up in the middle of nowhere huddled round a fire, fending off badgers with a fucking stick. We wanted to check out the highest point [...]
