Watergate bay | Cornwall days out with toddlers/ kids |

Last weekend we headed to Watergate Bay to make the most of the mini heatwave we had. The weather was incredible! When we got there we were horrified that we had to pay £8 to park all day. It might not seem like a lot for a one off but living in Cornwall means weContinue reading “Watergate bay | Cornwall days out with toddlers/ kids |”

Chippy tea on Looe beach

Last week when Josh got home from work we headed to Looe to have a chippy tea. Looe is probably our closest seaside town and whilst the beach isn’t anything special (just a standard beach) it has some lovely shops etc. And was close by enough for us to go there when Josh finished work.Continue reading “Chippy tea on Looe beach”

Wander round Trerice | My National Trust |

This weekend it was beautifully sunny and we headed to Trerice near Newquay. When we first arrived there we had a picnic lunch – as we are trying to save money at the moment we always pack a picnic! It’s so expensive eating out and it’s just not something we can afford right now. AsContinue reading “Wander round Trerice | My National Trust |”

Land’s end & Sennen Cove | Cornwall life | Travel with toddlers |

Last weekend we packed our lunches and got up early to head down to Land’s End. Although we have now live in Cornwall 9 months, we had yet to have seen it’s most famous land mark! We live in East Cornwall, around 40 minutes from Cornwall. With the roads in Cornwall being very windy ratherContinue reading “Land’s end & Sennen Cove | Cornwall life | Travel with toddlers |”

Holywell Bay | My National Trust

This post was written back in January. A couple of weekends a go we headed to Holywell Bay which is on the North coast of Cornwall near Newquay. It is a national trust beach which is why we decided to go there. The car park is free for national trust members which is really good.Continue reading “Holywell Bay | My National Trust”

Polzeath Beach | Day out with twins

Last week we headed to Polzeath beach. It was a lovely day out and the girls absolutely loved it. The only problem was that at the end of our time there, Dotty decided to pick up dog poo! It made me so angry that people let their dogs poo on the beach and don’t pickContinue reading “Polzeath Beach | Day out with twins”

Portwrinkle Beach

Last weekend we decided to head to Portwrinkle Beach on the recommendation of our friends. It’s about 35 minutes from us. To many people reading this that probably seems like a long drive… however, in Cornwall pretty much everywhere is a long drive! Especially since we live in the middle of nowhere and have toContinue reading “Portwrinkle Beach”

The Eden Project with toddlers

Last Saturday we went to the Eden Project in Cornwall with our 17 month old twins. We are so lucky to live in Cornwall and because of that we were able to get a locals pass to the Eden project. It cost £20 for the year, which is amazing because for just one day’s admissionContinue reading “The Eden Project with toddlers”

Christmas at Lanhydrock | My National Trust 

Yes, I realise that we are well and truly past Christmas now… We are mid January! However, I wanted to write a little bit about our experience at Lanhydrock house on Christmas Eve. All throughout December, Lanhydrock opened up to display a quintessential, upper-class Victorian Christmas. It was absolutely fantastic, the dining room was incrediblyContinue reading “Christmas at Lanhydrock | My National Trust “
