Dodging the rain in St. Mawes April 2023. A Cornish soaking at our favourite UK campsite. Four days of walking in the rain in search of the mythical Oggy.

A Castle Coddiwomple in Cymru February 2023. A long weekend with a pubstop near the Forest of Dean, exploring castles, eating laverbread and cockles, and going back in time.

The Brecon Beacons December 2022. Seeing out the old year with a wet and blustery trip to Wales. The Four Falls Walk never disappoints, but it was a shame the flooded rivers meant that we could not walk behind Sgwd Yr Eira Waterfall, or enter the caves at Porth Yr Ogof. Tretower Court and Castle was a lucky find and very interesting, well worth visiting. This was our first overnight stop at Tintern, and while the Abbey was amazing as usual, the parking and the pub proved disappointing, so we cut short our visit and headed for the impressive Chepstow Castle. 

Glastonbury Festival June 2022. Three nights, four very long days in the heart of Somerset.

Overnight on the Jurassic Coast April 2022.  From Worth Matravers, probably Dorset’s prettiest village, to deserted Tyneham village, one of the saddest. And a hike along the southwest coast footpath between St. Aldhelms and Winspit, completing the section between Poole and Weymouth for us.

Appledore and Lynton March 2022. Two nights of gales and rain in North Devon.

New Years Eve 2021 on Portland. A last-minute overnight stop at Portland Heights, overlooking the harbour and fireworks at midnight.

Family Jamboree in the Lakes July 2021. Three nights in glorious weather, right in the middle of the Lake District.

St. Mawes and St. Just in Roseland May 2021. Two nights in a very damp Cornwall, unusually for us, on a campsite, walking and sightseeing.

Tyneham & Studland April 2021. A tentative post-lockdown two-night trip to the Dorset coast. So much has changed since our last visit, access is much more difficult in many places

Bath – December 2020. Our annual Christmas visit, with social distancing in mind.
