Cornwall with kids: Hemmick Beach

In this blog post I will share our visit to Hemmick Beach in Cornwall and photos.

On our recent holiday to Cornwall with kids we visited some beaches we have never been to before in Cornwall.  That was my plan for this trip.  We’ve been to Cornwall around three or four times before and we usually go back to the same places each time: Portholland, Newquay and Perranporth. 

There’s always good reason as Ben has family friends in Portholland that practically live on the tiny beach on one side, and his grandparents were from Perranporth and there’s a bench up above the beach that is dedicated to them.  I love the beaches at Newquay and there’s lots to see and do, so we tend to go there too.  Of course it’s lovely to visit these places, but as I keep saying to Ben about travelling – every time we visit the same place, we lose a chance to see somewhere new.  Life is short and I want to see as many places as possible!

Cornwall with kids: walking the coast path to Mevagissey

During our October 2019 holiday to Cornwall we decided to walk the coast path from Pentewan Sands Beach to Mevagissey with the kids. Our kids are ages seven and four. It was just under 2 miles and probably just enough for them as there was lots of steep hill climbing for their little legs.  We’d already walked around 8km on the beach before taking them on this trek! In this blog post I’ll share lots of photos of our coastal path walk to Mevagissey. Continue reading “Cornwall with kids: walking the coast path to Mevagissey”

Visiting Bristol for half a day

Today me and Ben had a kid-free outing visiting Bristol for a day. We were only there for four hours in total, but it felt like a proper day out and mini-escape. If you’re wondering what you can do in half a day in Bristol, my favourite U.K. city, then read on. Continue reading “Visiting Bristol for half a day”
