Pilsden Pen

An Iron Age hillfort near Bridport in Dorset

Despite being on the big road map, this place was really hard to find and I’d recommend you borrow an ordnance survey if you don’t know the area. But don’t even bother with young children or walking disabilites. We parked in a small layby, then we crossed the road, clambered over a style and climbed up an incredibly steep hill to get to the top. Honestly, if I was in a warring tribe or a Roman, I’d get half way up and then turn round and go home again. I’m pretty sure there was a plaque at the top that said this was the highest point in Dorset. Don’t let this put you off though, my 7 year old managed it without too much complaining!

But it is so worth it! You can see for miles and miles around in all directions. Typically it was a misty cloudy day when went (!) but we could still see a decent view. It was the perfect spot for some kite flying. Though if I’m honest, virtually every one we went to was the perfect spot for kite flying!

There were double banks and ditches, from what I could make out and a massive flat enclosure at the top; so wide that this was about the only one we didn’t bother walking right the way accross. If you enjoy hill walking and breathtaking views, then this is the place for you.

Finding the perfect carry-on luggage. 6 Things to look out for!
July 22, 2018
Chris and I have been doing a fair bit of traveling lately, and both of us have been on the lookout for the perfect luggage. While your main suitcase, is of-course important, I think it’s the carry-on that needs to function at its best in order to fit your needs. This is particularly so if you’re traveling with only the cabin bag and not checking anything into the hold at all. I think I’ve found the perfect one, and I just thought I’d tell you about it…

Looking for a car rental company in central Somerset? Review of KNW Self Drive in Wells
May 11, 2018
I’ll be honest, I really wasn’t sure whether to write this blog post. Being negative about local companies is not really the direction I want to take this blog. However, due to its recent anniversary, I looked back at my first posts, and they were mainly reviews designed to be useful to the general public. I like the idea of being useful. If no-one writes mundane reviews of things like car hire companies because they want their blog to look pretty and be a fun positive place (which is really what I want mine to be), then no-one is going to know that it might be worth looking at other places instead of KNW Self Drive to hire a car for the weekend….

7 ways to survive a family road trip – holidays with kids advice!
June 5, 2018
Are you going on a road trip with your kids? Does the thought of going on holiday with children fill you slightly with dread? Well, worry no more – I’m here to help you out! Our first family road trip was back in 2002 when our daughters were seven and four years old and we did the classic California route that’s become very popular recently: Los Angeles then travel along the coast to San Francisco; to Yosemite national park; through Death Valley to Las Vegas; to the Grand Canyon; to San Diego for Seaworld then back to LA for Disney Land. And that was pre Sat Nav – I can still hardly believe we did all that with paper maps! Anyway, since then we’ve done a variation of that loop three more times and several camper van holidays in the UK from long weekends to a three-week tour of iron-age sites. Last year we drove from Washington DC to Orlando via Nashville, Memphis and New Orleans. I feel that we’ve got pretty good at road-tripping by now……
