Treen coast path walk 2016-06-18 A coast path walk from Treen campsite (near Porthcurno which is near Lands End). The guide book said 4.5 miles but it ended up being 7.2 miles AND with lots of up and downie bits as well. Very nice though.
Porthcurno and Porthgwarra 2017-09-14 From Treen Campsite (one of our favourites), a mixture of clifftops and a little inland to Porthgwarra. Back past the Minack Theatre.
Lympstone and back 2017-10-23 Round to Lympstone with Liz and back via Darts Farm
Scooby takes Julian for a drag 2013-12-28 A walk round the local fields. Scooby shows his enthusiasm for 2nd walk in one morning!
Tregunwith to Pandora Inn 2016-07-10 From Tregunwith Farm Campsite to the Pandora Inn on Restronguet Creek for dinner. Two pints of Rattler helped out on the walk back up the hill from the Pandora.
Liz, Jill and Ben stroke Agas 2013-07-05 Liz, Jill and Ben cycle to Darts Farm and lust after the Aga cookers. Jills son probably not so impressed. Back via Topsham. Average speed severely affected by taking GPS with them when Aga stroking. Rather unbelievable max speed generated when Liz heads towards the till mistakenly believing she can actually aford an Aga.
Dinner at the Pandorra 2018-07-06 Walking the hound from Tregunwith to the Pandorra Inn. At Tregunwith Farm with the camper van - great location, friendly owners, relaxed atmosphere and great prices. Don't tell anyone else!
Lympstone and Darts Farm 2018-01-14 Round to Lympstone and then on to Darts Farm to buy some new walking boots for Liz.
Darts Farm and back 2017-01-07 Off to Darts Fram to hire a tandem for Liz's birthday next week. Liz bought a leek! Average speed distorted by the time spent shuffling round Darts Farm while Liz looked for other stuff to buy.
Trevose Head 2019-04-23 Four beaches in one walk - Scooby in doggie heaven. In the campervan at the very nice Trehias Parm Camping - near Trevose Head (just west of Padstow). Walk via Treyarnon Bay, Constantine Bay, Long Cove and Harlyn Beach - all dog friendly beaches.
Fowey to Megavissey 2018-09-03 A walk down into Fowey and then a ferry from Fowey to Megavissey. On the trip into Fowey the ferry had spotted a large whale and porpoises but no such luck on our trip. From Megavissey, we walked round to Portmellon. The 26 miles wasn't all dog walking - it includes the return ferry distance!
Polkerris Beach 2018-09-02 Stayed at Penhale camp site near Fowey. A short walk to Polkerris Beach where we knew that dogs were banned but didn't know that the ice cream shop would shut up shop at half four - outrageous!
Logan Rock and Penberth Cove 2018-09-07 On to one of our favourite campsites - Treen (just near the Minack Theatre and Lands End). Photos are from the "nature ramble" that Liz went on - organised by the Treen pirate. Photos of Scooby at Penberth Cove are by Liz as the nature ramble also went that way.
Back to Morthoe 2019-04-25 Back to Lizzie's favourite campervan site - North Morte Farm at Morthoe. A rather wet and windy day (it got windier!) so we did a pub crawl of all of Morthoe's pubs (the Chichester Arms and the Ship Aground) and then took some rather good fish and chips to the bench below Morthoe Cemetary for a stunning view over Woolacombe Bay.
Gwenapp Head 2018-09-08 Another new take on a favourite walk. From Treen, via St Levans, Porthgwarra and on to Gwenapp Head (just along from Lands End and happily not touched by the awful tat at Lands End). We could see the rain showers getting blown in from the Atlantic - but as they were mostly horizontal it was possible to keep mostly dry by sheltering behind lumps of granite.
Woolacombe and Putsborough 2017-09-22 Scooby wouldnt have been happy if we'd come to north Devon and not given him a run along Woolacombe Beach at low tide. In a fairly wet and windy two week holiday, this was the only walk where we actually got soaked by the rain. However, we dried out a bit in the cafe at Putsborough and then the walk back in the wind meant that we were dry by the time we got back to the camper van on Marine Drive. The photos include a couple from North Morte campsite looking at the sunset over Lundy Island.
Tregunwith Farm to Mylor Harbour 2016-07-09 From Tregunwith Farm campsite to Mylor Harbour and a little way beyond. Saw Pat T and Graham I just coming back from a Tideway outing.
Looe 2017-09-12 A walk from Bay View Farm campsite down to Looe, on to Hannafore Point and then opposite St Georges Island
Demense Farm In Bellingham 2016-09-10 Heading west, we were back just below Hardrians Wall at Demense Farm campsite in Bellingham. A campsite on another working farm, Lizzie may object to me mentioning that she complained about the cow mooing overnight.
Helford Passage to Gweek 2018-07-08 On yet another stunning 2018 summer's day, we put the canoe in just past the Helford Passage and paddled up to Geewk at the top of the Helford. Then a dawdle back stopping at an old lime quay. Highlight of the day for Liz was teaching Scooby to enjoy swimming! We think that his buoyancy aid may have helped. At Penwarne Farm Campsite - lovely views in a field overlooking the sea between Falmouth and the Helford.
Budleigh on a tandem 2017-01-14 Darts Farm, Topsham to Budleigh Salterton and back. Liz's birthday present - a ride on a tandem. Quite a nice tandem - a Dawes hired from Darts Farm at Topsham. Some of the cycle track between Exmouth and Budleigh was being dug up so we had to go "off piste" for a bit and that meant going up some hills!
Blackthorn Farm 2016-09-14 On to Blackthorn Farm campsite. A nice spot just outside Holyhead,
St Agnes and Wheal Coates 2018-09-11 On to Beacon Farm Cottage camp site and the only day of the two weeks that was really lost to the weather. As soon as we got to the campsite and sat down to admire the view, the fog and mizzle came in with a vengeance. So we only did a short walk to the Wheal Cotes mine - very atmospheric perched on the cliff side and appearing out the gloom. The photos of fog and mist may not be the most exciting if you weren't there...
Hartland Quay 2017-09-20 A short walk to dinner from Stoke Barton Campsite on Hartland Point. Hartland Point is a scary place if you think about sailing near it in the wind or fog and the granite "teeth" of the rocks only enhance this. The Hartland Quay Hotel was a really nice pub doing good food.
Godrevy and Hells Mouth 2017-09-18 From Gwithian Farm campsite, past Godrevy Beach and on past Godrevy Lighthouse. Then on past an inaccessible cove where about 15-20 seals were resting, Then on to the rather splendidly named Hells Mouth where the lonely Hells Mouth Cafe did a great cappuccino.
