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?…..
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….

Visiting the Jack o’lantern Blaze & wearing my new purple coat
October 30, 2018
We couldn’t be in America without visiting a Halloween event, could we? Friends recommended the Jack o’lantern Blaze at Croton-on-Hudson in New York, and we were lucky enough to get tickets. This event sells out weeks beforehand, but I think I happened to be online when a new batch was released for an 8:30pm time slot on Tuesday. So I bought the tickets in a bit of a panic, but didn’t really know what it was I was buying them for!…
