Have fun looking around 🙂

Trereen Dinas

An iron age fort in the Cornish coastal cliffs.

Not to be confused with Treryn Dinas, which is near the Minack Theatre in the South. Trereen Dinas is on the North Coast and is miles away from anwhere, but near Guarnards Head, near Zennor, right at the end (or beginning) of Cornwall. Even with the help of an ordnance survey map, we were never entirely sure we actually got there. The only places to stop nearby were private, so I jumped out the car and had a look. There was certainly a path that led the direction of a big protruding rock in the sea, and that was probably it.

So only go and visit if you have time for a walk. There was a pub nearby you could park at, but I’m guessing it’s about a half hour walk from there.

We drove along this coastal road at about 5-6pm in August and I have to say it was absolutely breathtaking. We passed a ruined tin mine that was fantastic to photograph in that sunlight, and I do wonder if it was used in the Poldark series. It was owned by The National Trust, but I’ve just looked through their handbook and I can’t find the name of it unfortunately.

The farmers and landowners in the area keep all the old field boundries – many of the stone walls surviving from the Bronze and Iron ages. There are all kinds of great looking walks to interesting shaped rocks and places to explore. So if you want to go on a walking holiday I would definitely recommend this area along the B3306.

Mumsnet Blogfest review – an account of a nervous first-timer
November 16, 2016
I would have been altogether a lot less nervous about my first blogging event had I not signed up for Dragons’ Pen. They called it a Dragons’ Den style opportunity to pitch your book to an editor, and as places filled up extremely quickly, I was lucky to spot the e-mail in time to get a place with Sam Eades, senior commissioning editor of Trapeze, a new Orion imprint. I’ll be honest, I would have been a lot happier and relaxed that day if I hadn’t booked a place, but I’d also be kicking myself forevermore if I didn’t take a (very very) deep breath and go for it. I’d also for the rest of my life be wondering if I’d missed my chance to wow an editor in person. Would she snap up my work the second she heard it? Would she whip out a three book deal contract for me to sign?…..

Glastonbury Festival 2017 – Review & photos
July 15, 2017
Yes, I know it’s a bit late in the day, but I think I’ve written a review of every Glastonbury Festival since this blog began, so I can’t break with tradition can I? This was the first year I vlogged the whole event, so I’ve been intensely editing all the hours of footage I came home with, so please click the link if you’d like to watch the video. Anyway, Glastonbury 2017 will definitely go down as one of my favourites and I have to be honest, that’s mainly due to the perfect weather! I don’t go for the bands – if you’ve been to Glastonbury Festival, you’ll know it’s about so much more than the music, and it’s almost impossible to explain why……
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….
