This category is for all the landlubbers out there, it contains all the adventures you can have without getting your feet wet! Come here for hiking, camping, outdoor cooking and all the other great activities you can take part in around Cornwall.

  Last summer, we travelled from Norway all the way down through Europe to Croatia. We visited Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Poland and Hungary on the way. One of our very favourite parts of the whole, epic trip was spending a week in the Slokian High Tatras, hiking from hut to hut. You may have already read about our favourite Mountain Huts in the Slovakian High Tatras, however, in this little article, I’m going to write about and share photos of…

A few years ago, I got a pair of Ventrailia Outdry Trail shoes by Columbia and have worn them nearly every day since, so I thought it was time for a new pair. For obvious reasons, I chose Columbia again. Everything by Columbia that I have owned has been made to a very high standard and always looks great. After browsing, I chose the Columbia Women’s Caldorado II Outdry EX Shoe, as they look very cool and have some awesome…

Just under two years ago, I got the Edge Women’s Jacket by Didriksons, which I have been wearing non-stop since then. As I mentioned previously in that review, Didriksons always create such great quality clothing, so I decided, as the weather was getting pretty wet and cold, it was time for something even thicker and suitable for this climate. Obviously, Didriksons was the first choice for this. The Women’s Celine Parka by Didriksons is such a fantastic coat, which has…

The weather has been absolutely awful recently so it’s the perfect time to get a new jacket for the winter season. We do a lot of outdoor activities, regardless of the weather so I needed something to suit this lifestyle. I had been doing a fair bit of research to find THE one and came across the Quechua Forclaz 400 Women’s Waterproof Hiking Rain Jacket. If you are unaware of Quechua, they are a Decathlon brand. We own quite a…

As a Cornishman, I thoroughly recommended the Cornish Coastpath trail in the infographic below! There’s the trail from Perranuthnoe to Porthleven, but from my experience of hiking around, you can make your route even better by extending it from Perranuthnoe. Later on, I’ll let you in on some personal preferences, when you head down towards Sennen or even Landsend. Although, as a general note, Cornish coastal paths are pretty muddy during the winter months, so be sure to be equipped…

Over the half term holiday, we decided to make the most of our time and go for a mini-break in Hampshire. We found a fantastic, adult-only campsite called Two Hoots which provides award-winning, glamping holidays. Situated in a fantastic location, close to Winchester, the New Forest and Portsmouth, it really was an awesome base to explore the surrounding area. On arrival, we were greeted by one of the owners, who met us in the parking area and gave us a…

Over a year ago, I got my first pair of Teva boots (which you can read about here) and absolutely loved them. They’re one of my most warn pair of shoes, this is because of how amazingly light and comfortable they are and because of their high quality design and manufacturing. A year later and after lots of wear, they still look close to new and I’m still wearing them all the time. Now I’m a fully fledged fan of…

  First off, I apologise for dropping a Christmas gift guide so early, however I know people like to plan ahead. Most shoppers are a lot more organised than myself when it comes to Christmas gift buying and this guide is for them! Everyone else, I’ll see you out on the high street, panic buying during the week leading up to the 25th. This Christmas Gift guide is for your camping loving friend, family member or loved one. I personally…

    The first thing you are going to need to bake waffles on your campfire is a waffle iron. The one I personally have is the Petromax Waffle Iron and I’d definitely recommend it. As with all Petromax cooking equipment (I’ve already reviewed their Kettle, Dutch Oven and Hobo Stove), it is very, very well made and will serve you brilliantly for years and years. Anyway, after you’ve got your waffle iron, you’ll need a campfire and some ingredients……

  I’ve always been interested in BioLite Stoves; they’re very innovative and very different to other outdoor stoves on the market. I’m going to be reviewing the Biolite Campstove Two, this updated version of the original BioLite Stove has a 50% higher power output as well as new LED controls and improved control of its combustion. Inside the box you get the above contents: a stuff sack, FlexLight, fire starter, USB cord and instructions (don’t worry you wont need them,…
