Tropical Paradise along Cornwall's SW Coast Path

Prior to this year, I’d never been to Cornwall. I grew up at the opposite end of the country, and my parents always said ‘it’s quicker to fly to somewhere like Spain than drive all that way’. But this year, I visited the county for the first time. I’d heard it could support tropical plants thanks to...

SW Coast Path - Lizard Point to Kynance Cove

Over the summer I hiked from the National Trust's Lizard Point along the South West Coast Path to Kynance Cove. The weather was all over the place, but the whole thing was stunning from start to end. From coastal cliff erosion, black sand beaches, white sand beaches, turquoise waters, a very handy c...

The Gorgeous Lydford Gorge Hike

Lydford Gorge on the edge of Dartmoor National Park was an absolute gem when we visited a couple of months ago. An easy circular hike that featured foot bridges, waterfalls from the towering White Lady Waterfall to much smaller ones. Sections of board walk, tunnels, fish and so much moss and ferns. ...

Re: Aberglaslyn Gorge, Llyn Dinas and Cwm Bychan easy circul

Do you say that because of my comment about my knees?

I think you might be right too!

Aberglaslyn Gorge, Llyn Dinas and Cwm Bychan easy circular

I put together this video walk report of my experience hiking from Aberglaslyn, through the stunning gorge, Beddgelert (apologies for the mispronunciation of this in the video!) Llyn Dinas and a descent through Cwm Bychan - complete with its old ropeway. Whilst it was an easy 5.7 mile circular walk ...

Glyders in a Heatwave

Back during May Half Term I was up in North Wales for the week, and on the bank holiday Monday, during a bit of a heatwave, chose to hike the Glyders. By far, the highlight of my week up there and I've put together this video walk report. If you choose to watch it, I hope you enjoy it :) https://www...

Hever to Leigh - the best walk close to London?

This hike featured 3 gorgeous villages, 2 castles, 1 stately home, rivers, ponds, woods, farmers fields - it was all kinds of amazing. Despite the rocky start of not being able to locate a taxi (as it was a point to point walk) once we got going, the whole thing was phenomenal. If you think you coul...

Solo Hike at Box Hill

What's everyone's thoughts on solo hiking? Anxious, hate it, love it, prefer not to do it but would rather hike solo than not at all? I'd love to know! It wouldn't be my preference every time, but I did enjoy this solo hike at Box Hill in Surrey. Getting to be alone and in thought was very therapeut...

Knole Deer Park to Ightham Mote (South East England)

25 minutes on the train from Central London is a town called Sevenoaks. On its outskirts is a deer park called Knole. I hiked from the deer park down to a medieval moated house called Ightham Mote. It's still in tact today despite being built in the 14th century!! We might not have the towering peak...

Escaping Sedona's Summer Heat (video walk report)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P34mNl5E5Gg&list=PLz6dvaRLMZ_oqDTPig6u1wMI9a760MBGm&index=8 I visited Sedona in summer 2019 and it was ridiculously hot! My research told me the West Fork trail, just a little north of town was a nice walk to do to escape the summer heat as most of it was in t...

Uig Sands with unusually warm sunny weather! (Video report)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPxPWUSqhr8 Back when I planned this trip, Walkhighlands showed this walk as a 5* - so my expectations were very high. I enjoyed this walk, but I'm afraid I wouldn't concur with the 5*'s it had before I cast my vote on it. In addition to Uig Sands at the beginning of ...

Re: Latrigg: easy, yet still ended up in hospital (video rep

. The x-ray departments at these 'cottage' hospitals tend to operate with a skeleton staff.

Re: Latrigg: easy, yet still ended up in hospital (video rep

Oooof, Past My Sell By Date, I winced throughout your whole post there, sounds awful, but please you didn't have to go to hospital too! Pointless Parasite, that would make a lot of sense as it was a bank holiday Monday so don't expect the radiographer to have been in, especially for a 'cottage' hosp...

Latrigg: easy, yet still ended up in hospital (video report)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCAdlf601zw I'm afraid the video doesn't quite tell the story of how we ended up in hospital, mostly because my friend would have disowned me had I continued to film. Watch the video first, then read on to find out what happened after the camera finished rolling. As w...

Re: Devil's Garden - Arches National Park (Video walk report

Tim, thank you for your kind words about the video. Pleased to know I'm not the only one who appreciates all of its 'things to see' along the trail. Rob, I immediately think of the National Parks when I think of Utah and forget about the peaks that it offers. Was it the La Sal mountains you walked i...
