Kingfishers and Quality Time at Colenso House

Kingfishers and Quality Time at Colenso House

From the moment we arrived at Colenso House we were enchanted - which is somewhat of a feat for two world-weary parents and two twenty-something daughters (not to mention the two dogs)! We walked across the little bridge with the stream running underneath and it was like walking into a fairytale.

Once upon a honeymoon time...

Once upon a honeymoon time...

The journey into Cornwall by train was a lovely experience; endless coastline and dramatic seascapes built up the suspense. Was Mousehole and our little holiday cottage going to be everything we wanted it to be in a magical honeymoon?

Time Out at The Beach Hut in Cornwall

Time Out at The Beach Hut in Cornwall

Travelling has always been a big part of my life but since we welcomed our new family member (Errol the Golden Retriever) it has been much harder to pack up and fly somewhere, so this time I chose The Beach Hut in Cornwall.

The Magical Secret Holt

The Magical Secret Holt

The Magical Secret Holt, The owl hoots, whispering trees and the stars viewed through the bedroom skylight took us back to a time when life was simple and we enjoyed wild camping, yet the mod cons and home comforts made us not want to leave the blissful sanctuary...

The Island Hideaway

The Island Hideaway

In a peaceful area of the garden I used to dream about building a special place to retreat to, to read or paint or just to be. Inspired by a childhood love of beach huts, I set about designing what became the summerhouse...

The Bench

The Bench

There is something special about a holiday break when you park the car on arrival and do not restart it until it is time to leave one week later. And so it was when we stayed at The Old Pilchard Press in Mousehole during September 2012.

(Out of) Season´s Greetings

Head towards the rugged coastline of the iconic Lizard Peninsula, towards the point where the fields meet the sea and you’re bound to find a charming fishing village nestled in a hidden cove or corner of a sweeping bay.

A Stay in St. Mawes

A Stay in St. Mawes

I surveyed the lot before me, contemplating various permutations in my head. They had potential. Real potential. I was twenty points down, so close. There was still a chance.

The Apple Store

“Wouldn’t you rather go somewhere else? Some place... warm? Sunny?” That’s what most people said when I told them my husband and I were going on holiday. In England. In October. “Oh, but the rain!” they said.
