Chun castle and Chun Quoit

An Iron Age hillfort and bronze age stone monument

Don’t even bother going looking for these without a sturdy vehicle! If it’s muddy, you’ll need a four wheel drive for sure. But, as I mentioned in the bit about Trereen Dinas, this is a great place for a walking holiday, so that’s probably the best way to go!

We tried a few tiny roads – and I mean Tiny – the sides of our campervan enjoyed the tickling of many roadside brambles on both sides. Eventually we found a road leading to a farm where parked but there were no sign posts from there. So we picked a path to the right and walked for an hour and a half up a hill. My advice: Don’t Go This Way!!!! The path got smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller. And smaller. It had been a hot day and we were all in short skirts (apart from Chris (who was in a long one!)) and my legs got scrathced to pieces. Poor Jude was in sandals (and ended up being carried for much of the way). We waded through gorse, brambles, head-height bracken and even stingng nettles at some points. We kept thinking We’ve gone this far, it can’t be much further. Because of the steep slope to the left of us, we could never see more than a few metres in front of us and had no idea how much further it was. Eventually Chris went up ahead to the top of the hill and he still couldn’t see it. So we turned round and went back down again. I kept saying to myself, At least it’s not raining!

At the bottom we noticed a big rock painted white and a path leadng directly up over the hill. God knows why we didn’t notice this before! My advice – try that way if you’re going! It was getting dark by now and we still hadn’t found anywhere to camp overnight, and the kids were tired so we didn’t try again. So Chun Castle and Chun Quoit didn’t get a tick off out list!

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….
