Tremenheere – Cornwall’s hidden art garden

Cornwall boasts the most gorgeous gardens in Britain so I was thrilled to discover a new addition to its great outdoor attractions. Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens is hidden in a lush valley with woodlands, a stream and dramatic vistas which provide the setting for contemporary art installations.

Cornwall's dramatic coastal scenery

Cornwall and ‘Poldark Country’

Cornwall’s popularity as one of Britain’s favourite holiday destinations received a boost after starring in the TV drama Poldark this year.

Shaftoe Crags – Panoramic Northumberland walk

Shaftoe Crags with its sweeping panoramic views across one of England’s best-preserved rural landscapes takes you back to Northumberland’s ancient roots.

Once upon a time the coach parties flooded into Stonehenge to marvel at the ancient stones and archaeology. Today the craze for capturing yourself on camera seems to have overtaken old-fashioned sightseeing […]

Swallow Boats Rally at Ullswater

Ullswater is often described as England’s most beautiful lake and it’s hard to disagree with its top billing. Not only does it boast stunning scenery with a mix of mountains, woodland and water, there are plenty of hiking trails and scenic walks for hardened ramblers and leisure walkers alike. But by far the best way of […]
