Tylda is such a beautiful tent. Spot her in a field and you think “wow”. Unfortunately on the inside my interior decorating is not doing her justice. So far the rest of our camping kit includes: Air bed on the floor Travel cot A camping chair One set of fairy lights that doesn't quite reach … Continue reading A shopping list for glamping
Our toddler seems to need a dark, quiet room to be able to sleep. For the first year of her life we experimented with combinations of blackout blinds and curtains, on holidays we wrestled with rugs and sheets stuffed over windows. Anything for a room dark enough for her to consider closing her eyes. So … Continue reading Snoozeshade review- finally catching the elusive zzz’s
My greenhouse is my pride and joy. This is the first year I have had one, so it's all very new to me. It's a very steep learning curve! I have so many questions and I'm having to learn the answers the hard way. For instance, how do you water your plants when you are … Continue reading Holiday watering solutions- keeping your greenhouse green
Well that went better than expected! We had planned for a while to go camping last weekend. Just about every social event on our calendars fell on those few days so we decided to camp so that we were a bit closer to the action. So when the forecast showed rain we shrugged and thought … Continue reading Storms and glorious views camping at Penwarne Farm
I have thought of myself as being fairly social media savvy. Not the fastest whizz but not stuck in the dark ages either. I've been using Facebook since, well longer than many… if I tell you how long you'll be able to guess how old I am! I’ve even used Facebook for work, dragging that … Continue reading Tweet tweet…CHIIIRP
So what is glamping? When I first decided to ditch the pop up tent and buy Tylda I thought glamping was simply camping with glamour. A lot prettier and much more comfortable than traditional camping, kind of the opposite of wild camping. I naively thought glamping would still involve a tent that you could move … Continue reading The many faces of Glamping
The clouds are looming, the rain is pattering down the windows, and the great outdoors looks a lot less alluring than usual. So what do you do? Here's my list of favourite rainy day activities in Cornwall. Get to the beach. I bet you didn't expect me to say that! But if the weather is … Continue reading What to do on a rainy day in Cornwall
I've been meaning to go to Tintagel for oooh... about a decade. Its one of those must-see attractions in Cornwall, especially for a total mythology geek like me. So why did it take so long? Its renowned for being busy. Like the Eden Project and the Royal Cornwall Show, if you mention you are heading … Continue reading Tintagel
But only by each taking a nap in the morning. The little sleep destroyer decided that sleep is for losers and she was going to keep us awake all night. The long summer evening and sparklingly bright morning really didn't help. 4.30am, the birds and cows were all awake and telling each other how wonderful … Continue reading We survived!
Test run tonight! After much kerfuffle, and a toddler who decided she did not want to sleep in the travel cot, we are finally all tucked up in the tent. The best thing is that we are in the back garden so if it all goes horribly wrong we can just decamp to our own beds. All … Continue reading Testing….testing… 123….
