Airbnb at the Hinton Grange Cottages

We recently decided to stay at an Airbnb and visit the gorgeous quintessential beautiful city of Bath.

As we were taking Bella, we needed to find suitable accommodation that accepted dogs. I sent a vast amount of emails to various properties and spent hours trawling through the internet. It was however with Airbnb that I eventually found a gorgeous stunning stone cottage.

A Day In Falmouth

Today I thought I would stay in my home town of Falmouth and have a little wonder through before heading out to the beach.

A bit of history about Falmouth

Falmouth is situated on the South West Coast of Cornwall and is the first and last good harbour along the South Coast of England, it is home to Pendennis Castle which was built in 1540 by Henry VIII to defend the Carrick Roads. Along with the Carrick Roads Falmouth is the third deepest natural harbour in the world and the deepest in Western Europe, it was used by the Packet Service for over 160 years to deliver mail to and from Britains growing empire. In 1805 Falmouth was the landing point for Schooner Pickle which was carrying the news of Britains victory and also the sad news of Admiral Nelsons death at the Battle of Trafalgar, this news then left Falmouth by Stagecoach bound for London.

Kayak adventure around Mylor

On the third day of my staycation I decided to hire a kayak and go paddling around the Mylor Harbour Estuary.
It was such a glorious day so I called my friend Anna to see if she wanted to join me, it’s been such a long time since we had a catch up so this was a great opportunity to chat, workout and try something new.

A trip to Mousehole

The first day of my staycation was spent in Mousehole located in West Cornwall,I’d chosen to go to this quaint fishing village today as I only ever seem to visit there at Christmas time to see the lights. This beautiful little village is so pretty with the cobbled streets and picturesque harbour, I feel as though I am stepping back in time when I visit this place. It is so charming with only a few shops and some quirky art gallery’s. In 1930 Dylan Thomas described this place as the loveliest village in England, I have to agree that there is something very special and lovely about this fishing village.

Camping Experience with Canopy and Stars

With spring in the air and summer fast approaching I’m guessing we are all thinking about our holidays for this year.. Living in Cornwall, camping is a firm favourite pastime or holiday adventure…. but with this terrible weather we have been having its no fun camping in the rain. Being a lover of the great outdoors I was thinking how I could have that camping experience without getting really wet. Mr p and I have used Canopy & Stars previously when we had a night in a house boat as our first wedding anniversary adventure. So I thought I would take a look and see what other accommodation they had on their website and which ones I thought would give me that camping experience without getting soaked.
