Winter beaches in Cornwall for families

Posted on: 12th December 2019

Truly, I love winter in Cornwall.  Okay, maybe not the drudgingly moist grey days and pubs shutting at 9pm, but I love the blowy beach days, the endless sky, the careless beauty of the landscape, the extreme hot chocolate variants…. Our winter beach excursions often begin with uncertainty over what to do on the beach […]

Super six family trips for June in Cornwall

Posted on: 17th March 2017

A child-friendly North Cornwall walk

Posted on: 21st April 2016

We used to euphemise family walks as ’adventures’ to try to mobilise the troops to shuffle out on another fresh-air Sunday amble. It didn’t work for long. Recently we’ve taken an easier path – bribery.  Enthusing about hot chocolate, coke and shell-on prawns in a quiet, tempting voice is remarkably effective. The stunning 1.5 mile, […]

Brilliant Cornish beaches for families

Posted on: 6th August 2015

My vision of the perfect beach has changed since motherhood. Gone is a Maldivian reverie of deserted white sand, glamorous bikinis, searing heat and reef diving.

Toddling Around – The Camel Trail, Bodmin to Wenfordbridge

Posted on: 2nd June 2015

Cycling seems to lift everyone’s spirits – with the fresh air and scenery (or sometimes the sheer relief of finishing a ride!). It feels like the golden stuff of family memories. More practically, we have bikes so it’s not too expensive and it’s […]

Toddling Around – Our Trip to Camel Creek

Posted on: 22nd April 2015

  Our two year old was imbued with enthusiasm for Cornwall’s Camel Creek Adventure Theme Park after listening to her older sister’s glowing reminiscences about the Thunder Falls, Raging Rivers, zorbing and the death slide. Withholding Camel Creek from Cornish primary school kids is viewed (by them at least) grounds for calling Childline. Tim and […]
