I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

Carn Euny

A lovely Iron Age village in West Cornwall.

This is a great place to visit whether or not you’re interested in the British Iron Age period; and best of all it’s absolutely free! There is a donation box from English Heritage for upkeep of the site and car park, but I suppose they don’t have anyone working there all the time because it’s tucked away down a tiny country lane.

You can see the remains here of the stone walls of the ancient roundhouses in a small community, and an amazing fogou; underground chamber, that’s easy to get right inside of. It’s in a beautiful setting with views over the countryside, and much less people than at nearby Chysauster. We only saw one other family while we were there.

There are several information boards which help you work out which wall is part of which building and which lump is a grave etc. There are no toilets at the car park, but it’s only a five minute easy walk from there to the actual site. (If you have a pushchair, there is one style – but nothing 2 adults wouldn’t manage). It was August when we visited, but I gather the main path can get muddy and so can the fogou if you visit in winter.

A review of Comb Beck, a holiday cottage near Keswick in the Lake District; let by Sally’s Cottages

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….
