Castle-an-dinas

An Iron Age hillfort near St Columb Major, Cornwall.

I’m back from my holiday!! I had a great two weeks travelling accross the south of England; going from Kent; all the way to Cornwall, and then taking just over a week coming back again. So I had plenty of opportunites for more reviews! Much of the holiday was spent researching the Iron Age, so if you’re interested in that period of history, then stick around on this website.

I’ve also started a new section under Reviews, for things to and places to visit; I’ll be moving some of my old reviews that will fit into that catagory over the next few days. For now, it starts off with my visit to Castle-an-dinas, a hillfort in Cornwall.

This one has pretty easy access as it’s only a short walk from the car park – but beware – you don’t want to go looking for it in a cool lowered vehicle – you won’t make it up the track! Another warning: sheep’s poo is everywhere – do not attempt to wear flip-flops.

You can see for miles, but unfortuntely the view is no where near as nice as it was years ago, as all around there are factories and quarry buildings. We stayed around to watch the sun set over the sea, and it’s a lovely place to go for peace and quiet. It was also fun watching a group of young goats playing near us.

An information board said a bit about the iron age structure and the wildlife.

A day in out in Bath during Fashion Week
May 4, 2016
I don’t need much persuading to go to Bath – it’s a beautiful city and considering how close we are, I really should go more often. It’s the annoyingly slow and windy drive that puts me off I think. Anyway, considering clothing is one of my favourite things, I thought I’d go during Bath in Fashion Week. I chose one paid-for event, which was the talk with Livia Firth on sustainable fashion, and was pleased to see on the website that there were plenty of free things going on that day as well….
A review of Comb Beck, a holiday cottage near Keswick in the Lake District; let by Sally’s Cottages
March 29, 2017
A little weekend break was planned as a surprise by Chris, but he knows how I like planning things, so he did actually tell me about it in advance and I helped find somewhere to stay. Sally’s Cottages seems to be the go-to agency if you’d like to book a holiday cottage in the Lake District and I was impressed with their easy-to-use website with plenty of options to tick included whether there’s wifi and if dogs are allowed – our major requirements. I liked the look of Comb Beck, along with its location, so we went ahead and booked it….
Beach holiday in Lanzarote
A week in Lanzarote for a Canary Islands winter sun holiday
December 7, 2018
The all-round plan for this holiday was to do as little as possible. Everyone in the family agreed, but admittedly, all had slightly different versions in our minds of what ‘doing nothing’ actually meant! We have never had a holiday like this. In the past it’s all been road trips and busy sight-seeing adventures and after an exhausting week exploring Rome and Venice earlier in the year, we thought we were due a relaxing time away for a change….
The story of the photographs – Glastonbury Festival 2016
July 7, 2016
You are probably aware by now that this year’s Glastonbury Festival was quite a muddy one! Unfortunately I can’t find anywhere to buy camera cases that fit my Panasonic Lumix GM1 when it has a long zoom lens attached. So, as I have a sturdy leather case for the kit lens that came with it – 12-32mm (24-64 equiv) – I decided not to risk damaging my others. It was a good decision because the cover did get quite a bit of mud on it! However it means my photography was a bit limited this year. Not just by the lens, but unless you were there, I don’t think you can ever understand what it’s like to try and get around in that thickness of mud. It is almost up to your knees in places and sucks you down like it’s superglue, so even just taking a few footsteps to the right to get the best angle simply isn’t doable, let alone running to the most photogenic field when the sun sets! So I didn’t get as many good photos as I would have liked, but here are the best ones….
