Two Nights On Dartmoor

Well Dartmoor started off well enough with lovely, defined trails and well placed stiles that were taller than we are. For all intents and purposes, Dartmoor was a fucking doddle, despite the clouds looming closer, the kind of clouds you don't really want to see when you're just embarking on a three day hike with [...]

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 [...]

A Little Walk And A Beach Day

Most people know about Boscastle on account of that time it flooded and I don't mean the locals got their toes a bit wet whilst watching Corrie and eating their fish and chips one night. It fucking flooded. We're talking homes and businesses destroyed, cars washed out to sea as torrents of sewage infested water [...]
