A Ride on the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway

As soon as we had decided to visit North Devon I very eagerly acquired my OS maps of the area and scoured them for interesting places to visit. The Lynton and Barnstaple Railway caught my eye straight away. Firstly, Luke

Woolacombe Beach

We had a fantastic time camping in North Devon last week. We enjoyed some lovely walks amid the beautiful scenery. I didn’t really know too much about the area, but was pleasantly surprised by the glorious mixture of moorland, valleys

Stowe Gardens

With all the baby/new house/engagement excitement of last year, I keep forgetting that we managed quite a few outings as well. I recently came across some great photos of our trip to Stowe Gardens last October so thought I’d put

Aira Force

We also squeezed in a visit to the impressive Aira Force while in the area. This 65ft waterfall is well worth a look. There’s an easy walk through serene woodland to reach the falls which is great for families. It also makes

Kenilworth Castle Feb 2014

Kenilworth Castle Feb 2014

A few weeks ago on a very breezy February day we ventured into Warwickshire for a visit to Kenilworth Castle. Despite having lived in Leamington Spa for a couple of years I’d never been to the castle, so a trip
