Tintagel a Wild Walk Through Arthurian Legend

Tintagel, on the north coast of Cornwall, is a village steeped in Arthurian Legend, or in other words is alleged to be the former home of King Arthur. Now run by English Heritage, you can visit the site, enjoy the coast, and learn what part Cornwall may have played in this historical tale.

A day out to...

We headed out to visit on a lovely sunny day recently, so I thought I’d share the day with you, here on the blog!

Cross Stitch Update (Part 2) and a Wintery Walk

We’re now a week into lockdown; with lots of fun to be had, movie watching, cleaning the craft room, and getting out when we can! I thought this week, I’d share a recent walk, and a little creative cross stitch update too!

This Week

Before I get to the cross stitch update; I wanted to share a recent wander we had; at the beginning of lockdown; along a pretty woodland walk, right here in the heart of the city.

12 Days of Christmas 2020 – Christmas at Trerice

We weren’t sure if we would manage a festive day out this year, what with how this year has been. We did manage to find a little bit of Christmas at Trerice; so headed there for a little walk this week!

Christmas 11

Christmas at some of the local National Trust properties; is such a wonderful thing to experience. In the past we have visited Lanhydrock and Trelissick to see the decorations.

A Day Out To – Lanhydrock Gardens

I’m so glad we’re getting back to going out once or twice a month again; we’ve visited Trelissick already, and now it’s time for Lanhydrock Gardens. It’s a little more complicated with booking in advance, so a there’s not as much chance to be impulsive.

You can find out more about booking visiting times for the National Trust here.

But with the amazing weather we’re having at the moment; it’s so nice to get out, and enjoy some of our favourite places in the sunshine!

A day out to...

Of course the National Trust houses aren’t open yet; which is understandable, but it’s a rare treat to be able to get out and enjoy Lanhydrock’s beautiful gardens; which, if you’re eagle eyed when it comes to past posts, our visits usually get a bit rainy! (This is purely coincidental! We just have bad luck visiting when it comes to the weather!) The gardens are beautiful, and there is so much to see.

A Day Out To – Trelissick Gardens

Finally we are able to get out and about again! So we’re heading not too far from home this week, to one of our favourite nearby National Trust sites, Trelissick Gardens.

A day out to...

Now I’m back to work facing the general public again, so, it meant we’ve decided to make the occasional booking for a day out again. At least here, a few places are open, in some capacity, with timed arrivals spots available for booking around a day or two in advance.

Of course this is a difficult time, but we really enjoy our wanders around local National Trust properties and gardens, and have missed them so much over the lockdown, so for our first wander (aside from the local park) we booked to visit Trelissick.

A Day Out To – The South West Coast Path

The rules have changed and we can finally head out in the car again, so we’re driving for a walk along a section of the South West Coast Path!

Written during Lockdown May 2020

Deciding to go a little further away, to make a change from the local park, and a wander to the supermarket, we drove to nearby Perranporth for a much needed dose of sea air!

We headed out to enjoy the glorious sunshine, choosing to stay away from the beach, and heading to the cliff path.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan – Has Spring Sprung?

This last weekend has been beautiful, with sunny skies and temperatures bordering on (dare I say it?) warm! We decided it was the perfect time to visit the Lost Gardens of Heligan!

A day out to...

In comparison this time last year; we were facing the Beast From the East, and hiding away from the cold and snow!

Snowman March 2018
Around this time last year we made this guy! Using up all the snow in the garden!

A Day Out To: NT Antony House – A Doorway to Wonderland

Of all our National Trust visits, it seems fitting; that one of our final properties to visit in 2018; was one that had been on my list for a very long time; the beautiful, Antony House.

A day out to...

Antony House in Torpoint is an 18th Century mansion; now owned by the National Trust; it is still home to the family that have owned the estate since the 16th Century.
