    Tintagel Castle

    July 10, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    ist das Neuschwanstein Cornwalls. Eine Besichtung des Schlosses (zur Spurensicherung 😆) war nicht möglich, da Artus' Nachfahren Baumaßnahmen zur Terrassenerweiterung und möglicherweise auch zur Wärmedämmung in Auftrag gegeben haben.Read more

    Trewethett Farm caravan park

    July 6, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    What a place to stay - incredible views out over the coast, and King Arthur's castle just over the fields.
    The owners very kindly opened up the gates for us after our gps muck up .... oh junction 29 on the M5, just after the A30 and the A303 ..... roads here are just weird....Read more

    King Arthur and the 50 million stairs!!!

    July 7, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    We set off early for Tintagel Castle in the balmy 22 deg sunshine, after the first 20 thousand steps it was bloomin hot !!!
    Amazing views from around the cliffs though and the ruins are pretty impressive.
    I'm not quite sure how those knights did all that climbing in their armour!!!
    Wandered through the quaint village (once you get past the bus loads of Italians anyway).
    A quick fleeting stop at the Cornish coast .... off to Devon

    Mit dem Passat Variant ins B&B

    July 10, 1994 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 17 °C

    Der frischeTunnel zu unserer Urlaubsinsel ist uns noch zu unheimlich. Auch wollen wir den Kanal ein erstes mal mit einem ordentlichen Schiff queren! (Ein Jahr später soll es einen Brand genau auf unserem Dampfer geben!).
    Mit SALLY Ferries gehen wir in DÜNNKIRCHEN mit unserem Passat Variant an Bord und schippern nach RAMSGATE.
    Unser erstes B&B mit zünftigem englischen breakfast haben wir in MARGATE. Wir genießen die tolle Gastfreundschaft, die Küste und die Hafenstädte.
    In POETSMOUTH wird uns eine 🚗 scheibe zerstört und der gerade mal 1 Jahr alte 📷 von Gustav ist futsch...
    Wir lernen: Wo bereits Autoglasscherben rumliegen, sollte man nicht unbedingt parken! Ein netter Autoglaser baut eine unkaputtbare Kunststoffscheibe ein und will absolut kein Geld 💰! Der Police Officer bringt uns diese Nacht in seinem B&B unter und wir werden verwöhnt...und sind voll versöhnt!
    Auch auf den höchsten Berg in UK sind wir gewesen, dem SNOWDON mit schlappen 1.085m...

    Sunshine at last!!

    October 2, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    We had an interesting, if sobering, chat with the guy who owns our cottage (and the big house, and the whole valley, and a pack of shire horses, and ...) while he was replacing the broken kettle. Apparently he worked as a tin miner most of his life, 12 hour shifts underground, but got £300 a week at a time when the average manual worker in Cornwall got only £20. Talk about deserving every penny...

    Gorgeous day, so we went to Tintagel. Which is named after a tagel, made of tin. English Heritage, of which observant readers will recall we are long-time members, have spent £2m building a smart new bridge to connect the 2 parts of the castle, replacing the natural land bridge which collapsed in the 15th century. I assume the delay was due to stringent planning laws. Anyway, it only opened in August and is spectacular and avoids hundreds of steep steps down and up. EH have really improved the place since we last visited about 10 years ago.

    Then we went to Padstow, which was very disappointing. The museum was shut, but I expect the only info in it would say that there was nothing there until Rick Stein bought EVERYTHING, rebranded every shop with his name and hiked all prices by 400%.

    So we came home, to catch up on the cunning Brexit plan Johnson and Cummings (well, Cummings...) have concocted. 😱

    September 17, 2020 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Waking up to beautiful sunshine was a treat as we had planned a coastal walk to Boscastle. We had it in our heads that this was a quick walk as the distance did not look too great on the map. We were proved wrong - the walk was fabulous - dotting in and out of all the coves and rising to the cliff tops before dropping into the valleys. The sea views were once again beautiful and rugged. We walked over Smith's Cliff, dropped down to Bossinay Haven and Benoath Cove and into Rocky Valley, then rose up again to pass by Trewethett Farm CAMC site (we tried to book in here for our stay but it was full) whch had spectacular views across the coastline.
    We stopped by Ladies Window for our lunch prior to descending via the Forrabury Stitches into Boscastle. The views the whole way were stunning and dramatic, every bit of the coastline we have been to in Cornwall has been special.

    More pictures of the coast along this stretch.
    The walk turned out to be one of the more strenuous ones we have done - we returned via the inland paths on the high ground across fields from Boscastle.
    We celebrated in the evening with a glass or two of wine as we sorted out our accommdation for the first 12 weeks of 2021.

    September 14, 2020 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    A travelling day - a few miles up the coast via the supermarket at Redruth for a stock up.
    We arrived at our site early afternoon and wandered into the village for a quick look under glorious sunshine. The village was busy with visitors although the Post Office NT property was closed due to the Covid situation. The village is full of cafe and food outlets and some nice smells were coming out of the bakery.
    The following day we wandered up to Tintagel Castle midmorning as we had pre booked our time slot with English Heritage. We arrived under cloudy but sunny skies but were soon swamped by mist that rolled in off the sea which added to the mystique of the place.
    The site was arranged on a one way walking basis with the first section leading up to the new bridge, exit was via the long drop underneath the bridge to low level where we continued down to Merlin's cave on the beach below.
    After our visit we set off southards along the coast path - we did not venture too far as we could not see the coastline due to the mist and returned to our van for a lazy afternoon. Karen did some hand sewing and A prepared the evening meal.

    September 16, 2020 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Wednesday started under mist once again, which fitted well with our planned lazy day.
    We did some foward planning for Jan/Feb and have found a great cottage to rent in Dorset as we will not get to Australia in the new year.
    The photos are of Tintagel Castle under the mist

    Tintagel castle

    August 23, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    La maggior attrattiva di Tintagel sono le rovine del castello dove dicono che sia nato re Artù e che qui sia stato allevato ed addestrato da mago Merlino. Vera o falsa che sia questa storia il posto è incantevole e magico anche se del castello resta ben poco se non qualche pezzo delle mura... Anche qui una strada in discesa per arrivare al promontorio da dove si gode di una vista mozzafiato sulla costa.Read more
