Located in Gweek, Cornwall, not far from Helston; the Seal Sanctuary, part of the Sea Life Trust charity; is a great day out for all the family. With nature walks, farm animals, penguins sea lions and of course seals. Recently the Secret Creek, home to three totally cute beavers. Located in a pretty coastal valley, and open year round, there is plenty to see on repeat visits.
We have visited at different times of year before; and can definitely attest to there being lots to see, at different times of year rain or shine.

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.
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!

I’m surprised looking back at the blog recently; that there aren’t more posts sharing days out to zoos and wildlife parks. It’s definitely something we really enjoy and something I will totally endeavour to share more of in the future!
This year my A-Z Challenge theme is: The Craft Room and Beyond – A Retrospective. A look back at previous content and basically a chance to share and revisit some things from the archive. As well as exploring things that haven’t made it to the blog yet! As I have said before; if you see something that piques your interest that I don’t link to; certainly seek out the search bar, or get in touch!

Shock twist for those expecting craft for C! We’re on Day 3 of the April A-Z Challenge, and I thought I’d share a little snippet of a household pastime! Stu definitely got me into cars; (I don’t even drive!) and now I think we can safely say I’m about as crazy for cars as he is; though in a different way!
As I revealed previously; this month I am sharing a retrospective; or look back, on The Craft Room and Beyond! Beginning with A all the way to Z. Sharing fun content past and more recent, as part of the blogging from A-Z Challenge.

Hello April! It’s A-Z Challenge time again, and as I revealed previously; this month I am sharing a retrospective; or look back, on The Craft Room and Beyond! Beginning with A all the way to Z. Today I am starting with some of our Awesome Adventures!
I love sharing our travels and days out here on the blog; whether it’s a holiday abroad, a weekend away or a day trip closer to home. We are lucky to live in the beautiful county of Cornwall, and there is so much to see and do; right on our doorstep!

I’ve never attempted bullet journaling before. But having tried scrapbooking (a lot); something between scrapping and art journaling; and even just having a planner last year(!) I thought it was time I gave it a go! So in this post I thought I’d share things at the beginning, so here’s the bujo – January 2021, and how I’ve set it up so far.
I got my journal for around £10 on Amazon, from Stationery Island, I actually got a kit which came with a ruler, some stickers (yay) and a pen.

Happy New Year! So, here we are, the beginning of a new year, a fresh start, a new page etc etc! I’m sure I’m not the only one typing “Hello 2021” with a little more hope than previous years!
I’m not going to be all “New Year – New Me”, because it’s not my style. I don’t even have a huge amount of “goals” but I thought I’d take a little bit of time to share some of what you can expect here on The Craft Room and Beyond this year!

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 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.

Is there anything more autumnal than visiting a pumpkin patch? While it’s a little early to be picking up a pumpkin; this weekend we headed to a local pick-your-own for some autumn fruit picking!
It’s been a while since either of us have been fruit picking, but we thought, why not! A nice excuse for some fresh air, and exercise, and a bit of fun!

Autumn is my favourite season, and it seemed only right, to share my autumn bucket list here on the blog, to show what I have planned for the next month or so!
I don’t have much planned generally for October, but there are a few things I would like to do! So I created a bucket list at the beginning of the month, knowing ahead of time, it was one of the prompts for Instagram…
