This post would have originally been our first car show since the pandemic, but thanks to some inclement weather, it was cancelled! Not to waste a day off we decided to head down to St Mawes Castle, an English Heritage site, not too far from Falmouth.
This was a fun impromptu day out to make up for the lack of show! We visited from about 2pm, and they close at 5 on a Sunday. You can of course check the website for opening times and prices.

The Jubilee is getting nearer, and apparently the weather knows! While the sun was shining, we decided to head out for a wander. We decided we were long overdue for a visit to the harbour, for a sunny day out in Mevagissey!
Mevagissey is a pretty harbourside village, near St Austell in Cornwall. Well known for catering to tourists and locals alike, with shops food and drink aplenty.

To take advantage of a nice, sunny day off; we decided to head out for the day, to visit Pendennis Castle. An English Heritage site, not too far from Falmouth.
Pendennis is a fun day out, with lots of sunny open space, great views, and lots to explore! From Tudor history, to “modern” wartime history. You can find more information on the English Heritage website, including prices and opening times.

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!

Now that restrictions have eased a little; I’m so glad to be able to start going out again, and this week we visited Newquay Zoo!
Of course the lockdown has had a huge impact on many businesses and so we wanted to try and support some local places by paying them a visit. There are of course many places to donate too, which is really amazing; and a great way to support the places you love if you can spare a little to help any of those struggling.
Newquay Zoo, is actually one of the first places I visited when I moved to Cornwall almost ten years ago; and we’ve been a few times since; because it’s great for a wander, and of course who doesn’t like seeing lots of cute animals!

The British Motor Museum is a brilliant and unique car museum; located in Gaydon, Warwickshire, just off J12 of the M40. Stu and I have discussed going for a while now; and as we were recently in Leicester; we were in the perfect position to visit as we headed home to Cornwall.
Of course we’re not a stranger to automotive museums; though Stu hadn’t visited for years and it was a first time visit for me.

When the opportunity arose to attend Paulos Circus’ latest show, and share our experience on the blog, Stu and I jumped at the chance. We decided to stay away from social media searches, and so we had no idea what to expect, we were excited! We weren’t to be disappointed!
I can’t remember the last time I went to the circus, long enough that times have changed and the presence of animals is thankfully no longer a thing. Looking forward to acrobatics, fun and more… But what would we get?
This is a sponsored post; I was gifted tickets to Paulo’s Circus in return for an honest review.

Yes, it’s that time of year again; Car Show Season! I’ve blogged about car shows before, and of course we visited Haynes Motor Museum recently; so it’s no secret that we’re car fans in this house (even me and I can’t drive!)
This year, instead of individual posts, I thought I’d round everything up into one big post.
In this post, I’ll share some photos and information from the fab shows we’ve attended this year! You can also find some photos on my highlights on Instagram; from the Marie Curie Country and Classics show this past weekend.

A weekend away in Somerset was just what we needed; in terms of getting away for a couple of days. Though of course all good things must come to and end! However, on the way home; we stopped off at once of our favourite hidden gems in Lifton Devon, Dingles Heritage Fairground…
We really enjoy it here, and it’s a great indoor attraction for all the family! Whether you want to check out some amazing fairground history, or have fun on some genuine vintage rides!
